Flavour Heroes Luncheon 

We have worked extrememly hard to ensure that we source some truly fabulous suppliers for our produce.  

We decided to bring them together for a luncheon in London recently and aksed each one to provide some of theire produce for a course each.  What a feast it was!

We were joined by Norfolk Quail, Creedy Carver, Trenchmore Sussex Wagyu, Hodmedod's, Celtic Pride, Langley Chase and Dingey Dell. Below are some images of the delicious courses served.
