It’s British Pie Week! Originally a marketing campaign by ready made pastry company Jus-Roll, British Pie Week has evolved into so much more with many restaurants, bakeries and good old fashioned pie shops offering traditional staples as well as new innovations.
We have been suppliers of Chunk of Devon pies for a long time. Traditional pie and pasty makers since 2006 and based in Ottery St Mary, they are producers of multi award winning pies, pasties and sausage rolls with a variety of flavour combinations, all wrapped in their signature buttery pastry. All of their products are made using locally sourced ingredients and they pride themselves on delivering great tasting pastries without any additives and preservatives.
There are many different flavours to discover from traditional steak pie with red wine, bacon and baby onions to tender lamb pasty with sundried tomatoes, fresh rosemary and caraway seeds and goats cheese pie with butternut squash, sweet potato and red onions. For a limited time only they are also offering their Posh Fishpie which is filled with pollock, salmon, smoked haddock and prawns in a creamy cheese sauce.
According to a recent survey 75% of households consume some sort of pie every week. Why not make it a good one and order your Chunk of Devon pie today!
We have been stocking Langage Farm’s clotted cream, double cream, yogurts and cottage cheeses for a long time now. On a cold winter’s day, there is nothing better than curling up with a hot crumble or sticky toffee pudding with a good dollop of clotted cream.
Langage Farm has been a working farmstead for over 900 years and in 1980 the Harvey family began using Jersey and Guernsey cows’ milk to produce clotted cream for a nearby shop. You could say that since then the company has grown and now their creams, yogurts, desserts and ice creams can be found up and down the Devon countryside. Today they employ around 50 people and a herd of over 250 Jersey and Guernsey cows to produce award winning products.
We currently stock their 57g, 113g, 200g and 1kg clotted cream as well as their 284ml double cream and cottage cheeses in natural, chive and pineapple flavours. Their creams make delicious additions to desserts but why not also try them in recipes such as cookies, cheesecakes and brownies? For those with less of a sweet tooth try their cottages cheeses on jacket potatoes, liven up salads or even add to lasagne.
The luxury layered fruit yogurts in glass jars are relatively new. These make a decadent dessert or sweet treat and the glass jars can be reused to hold your own desserts, tea lights or even store small trinkets. Deliciously thick and creamy, these yogurts are available in the following flavours: blood orange and cranberry, raspberry, salted caramel and lemon curd.
With so many fantastic products on offer, why not treat yourself and enjoy some of Devon’s finest produce?
