    Tastes & Textures:

    Pink Roscoff Onions
    Grown since the 17th century in France, these highly-prized aliums originated in the perfectly-suited soil of Brittany around Roscoff. The Roscoff onion is particularly versatile and can be used raw or cooked. High in Vitamin C, their beautiful colour and sweet flavour make them as perfect for use in salads as they are for traditional Onion Soup. Their marked sweetness means these onions caramelise well.

    San Marzano Tomatoes
    These elongated, dense-fleshed tomatoes are high on flavour and low on seed content. Sweeter and less acidic than many tomato varieties, they are the tomato of choice for making sauces.

    French 'Sandy' Carrots
    A particular favourite of ours, these French carrots are grown in perfect sandy-soil conditions and are the sweetest we have ever discovered.

    Violet Garlic
    In our opinion, the best-tasting of all French garlic is grown in the Tarn region of South West France. This plump, sweetly flavoured garlic is distinctive for its purple/violet tinted outer skin.

    Unwaxed Amalfi Lemons
    Grown on Italy's Amalfi Coast, these are widely recognized as the best lemons in the world. Along with its intense naturally sour juice, the thick, knobbly, unwaxed skin can be used to bring an intense aromatic zest to your cooking. Once tried you will appreciate the difference between this lemon and its less special cousins.
