Date Producer Description
28-Jan-16 Hansen & Lydersen At Hansen & Lydersen they smoke salmon the true Norwegian way. They source their salmon from a sustainable farm in the extreme wilderness between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic, and ensure it is prepared in less than 48 hours after it has been fished. This is the best farmed salmon in the world from one of the last family run fish farms.  Each Hansen & Lydersen salmon is carefully hand-filleted and hand-salted according to a family recipe devised by Norwegian fishmonger Lyder-Nilsen Lydersen in 1923. It is then traditionally hung and slowly cold-smoked in the brick kiln of their Stoke Newington smokehouse where it moves in the wind for 12 hours. They use a unique blend of juniper and beech wood for a pleasantly sharp and piquant aroma. Their wood shavings are responsibly sourced, 100% pure wood – with zero chemicals.
The Kernel Brewery One of the grandfathers of the London craft beer scene, Kernel Brewery was founded by Evan O’Riordain in 2010. His mission then was to brew beer worthy of attention, and was one of the first UK breweries to brew huge, hop-forward IPAs. Now internationally recognised as one of the best breweries in the world, Evan’s beers changed the way that people drank in the capital and was the inspiration behind most of the new wave of London breweries. They still brew in small batches and now produce wonderful sours and fantastic porters and stouts.
28-Apr-16 Paxtons & Whitfield Britain’s leading cheesemonger for over 200 years, sourcing and maturing exceptional cheeses. Paxton & Whitfield gained their first Royal Warrant to Queen Victoria in 1850 and today holds Royal Warrants of Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen, and HRH The Prince of Wales. 
19-May-16 Rhug Estate – organic meat The Rhug Estate covers 12,500 acres extending from Gwyddelwern in the north, Carrog to the east, Cynwyd to the south and Maerdy to the west. The 6,700 acre in-hand organic farm is the geographical core of the estate along with Rûg Mansion being the main residence. Currently the farms produce Aberdeen Angus Beef, Welsh Lamb, Welsh Salt Marsh Lamb, Chicken, Geese and Turkeys at Christmas and Thanksgiving all reared organically. They also run a herd of Wild Bison and more recently have begun supplying wild forage from both farms.
