Our olive oil comes from the Simeti farm at Bosco Falconeria, one of the first in western Sicily to obtain organic certification. Their extra virgin olive oil is carefully blended from Biancolilla, Cerasuola and Nocellara del Belice olives hand-picked in groves that are from 20 to over 200 years of age. Cold-pressed and unfiltered, the oil has a pleasing fruitiness and the marked peppery taste that denotes long shelf-life and high nutritional value.
Our chillies and spices are sourced from the Asian Cookshop who are amongst the few to stock flakes of naga jolokia chilli, which was once considered the world’s hottest pepper and which we use in our mad sauce. Our fragrant waters come from Mymoune, the first and still the best artisanal producer of preserves in Lebanon whereas Persepolis in Peckham provide us with our slivered nuts and other exotic ingredients.
Our rice and pulses come from Brindisa, the premier Spanish suppliers in London who have been sourcing the best Spanish ingredients for the last 25 years.
Our vegetables come from Tony Booth, a highly respected vegetables wholesaler who supplies many of the top chefs in London.
Our juices are freshly pressed by Sundance in Covent garden. They also provide our freshly prepared fruit salads using the best and freshest produce for both.
Neal's Yard Dairy has been one of London's top purveyors of fine cheeses since the 1980's. Since then they have expanded to having their own dairy selling some of the best milk in town which we use to make our silky and exotic milk pudding.
