beetrootCradoc’s Savoury Biscuits
These new savoury biscuits are already proving a hit with our customers. A small, family business based in the Brecon Beacons, Cradoc’s have been baking their crisp biscuits for the last 10 years using only natural ingredients. The majority are suitable for vegans while some contain cheese and are vegetarian friendly. Flavours include Beetroot & Garlic: an attractive dusky pink cracker chilli, ginger and garlicflavoured with fragrant garlic and savoury beetroot with a delightful peppery finish (if you hadn’t guessed this is one of our favourites!), Chilli & Ginger: turmeric crackers with cumin, black pepper and nigella seeds combined with subtle red chillies and bold ginger flavours and Cheddar & Onion Chutney: golden baked crackers with pickled onions and sweet chutney mixed with traditional Cheddar. These are all available in 80g packs with a minimum order of three boxes. Click here to view the whole range.

Olive’s Kitchen Frozen Meals
We love the ease and convenience of a frozen meal and the vegetarian varieties available are both satisfying and tasty whilst being packed full of healthy goodness. Olive’s Kitchen is made up of husband and wife team Charlie and Nikki Allhusen butternut_squash lasagnewho swapped running a successful deli for cooking homemade gourmet meals from their purpose built kitchen in Sherbourne, Dorset. The Butternut Squash lasagne is a classic favourite among both our customers and staff and it’s easy to see why. The roasted butternut squash is sweet and buttery with a creamy ricotta and spinach filling layered with fresh pasta and a tomato and basil sauce and finally topped with mozzarella and parmesan. The Aubergine Parmigiana is full of deliciously rich and more-ish flavours and combines grilled aubergines with a hearty tomato and basil sauce topped with a crisp mozzarella and parmesan crust. These are both available in single 300-320g portions and the whole Olive’s Kitchen range is available to view here.

Cous cousDelphi Dips and Salads
Delphi dips are the perfect accompaniment to a vegetarian feast, we love their Lemon & Coriander houmous with lightly spiced falafel or the red kidney bean salad mixed with peppers and sun-ripened tomatoes with olive oil, mint and mixed herbs for lunch, the crunchy coleslaw as part of a cheese ploughmans and the char-grilled vegetable cous cous as part of a Middle Eastern inspired dinner. Delphi Foods are a family business based in London who began selling specialised foods from Greece and Cyprus in 1960 and evolved into the award-winning brand we know today. Available in individual pots ranging from 160g-200g click here to view the whole Delphi range.

Summer Dips from Delphi

The weather may have taken a turn for the worse this week but hopefully the sun will be returning very soon and we’ll be able to enjoy these delightful summer dips from Delphi Foods al fresco style.

Red pepper houmous

Established in 1984, Delphi Foods is a family run business specialising in dips, salads, olives and tapas made using the finest ingredients. We have been stocking their products for a long time and following recent introduction of new lines and vibrant new packaging they are really becoming a popular choice for a number of our customers.

Traditional dips include classic houmous, made with ground chickpeas, nutty tahini and lemon juice, refreshing tzatziki with cooling yogurt, chopped cucumber and mint and chunky guacamole made with avocado, coriander, lemon and a hint of chilli. Other dips in their range including smoky aubergine, classic taramasalata, Auberginesmooth tahini and a variety of flavoured houmous.

Their extensive salad range includes fluffy cous cous with smoky char-grilled vegetables, fresh edamame beans and sun-dried tomatoes with mixed herbs and hearty three bean salad with a mix of red kidney, borlotti and cannelloni beans marinated in olive oil and herbs. All of these salads are suitable for vegetarians and the majority are also vegan friendly making them a perfect addition for BBQ’s and al fresco parties this summer. They also travel well which makes them a great picnic staple.

Cous cousAmong their tapas products are classic falafel made from garbanzo beans and Middle Eastern spices, tasty Greek style dolmades made using fresh vine leaves and a delicious mix of cooked rice and herbs and red peppers stuffed with feta cheese and marinated with garlic and fresh herbs.

We love the new look of the Delphi products and the family ethos surrounding the business is similar to our own.
