October brings a selection of comforting autumnal flavours in earthy mushrooms, sweet pumpkins and heartier greens such as chicory and watercress. We stock some of the most exciting varieties of fruit and vegetables available including hard to find Vitellotte purple potatoes, fragrant Muscat grapes and a pumpkin that’s nurtured, heat-cured and stamped with a special marker of quality - definitely not one for carving into a Halloween lantern!
Hot and fiery horseradish is a love-it or loathe-it ingredient. While many indulge in its rich heat, others find the heady mustard-like kick a step too far. For those who can’t get enough though, this root is so much more than just the perfect foil to roast beef. Horseradish is part of the brassicaceae family and shares genetics with mustard, wasabi, broccoli, radish and kale. Long and gnarly in shape, the flesh is creamy white and seemingly innocuous. Don’t be fooled though, this root has a knockout punch.
