The Artisan Smokehouse
The Artisan Smokehouse
An amazing smoke house set up by Tim Matthews... I remember years ago when Tim used to work at the BBC Good Food Shows (for someone else), telling me he would be setting something up of his own soon enough and it's so exciting to see how far he has come with it!

From smoked beef fillet (literally melts in your mouth) to Scottish salmon, herbs and spices to unusual oils and cheeses Tim will have a go at smoking anything and will sell if it tastes good!

See him at the BBC Good Food Show London 2013 in the Good Food Champions area - just don't ask him about the risotto he tried to make on MasterChef!!

Isle of Skye Sea Salt
Isle of Skye Sea Salt
Incredible artisan sea salt from the Isle of Skye
With the purest Scottish water taken from Loch Snizort on the Isle of Skye, the sun dries the sea water into delicious irregular salt crystals. Available in fine (great for sprinkling) or premium crystals (perfect for grinders) the salt comes in a beautiful card tube with subtle tartan design, almost like a mini fine whisky tube.

Only available in limited quantities this truly is a rare, artisan food find. Recently confirmed as a BBC Good Food Champion for the Scotland BBC Good Food Show - let's hope we'll be able to buy their salt there!

Why Nut import the highest quality nuts and nut pastes for use as ingredients in cooking or on their own. With pistachio, hazelnut and almond pastes in the range they are perfect for baking enthusiasts... I tried the pistachio paste in a souffle which didn't come out quite as hoped but was delicious all the same!
