Our Ingredients

The best menus and meals start with the best ingredients...

seasonal fruit & veg, organic herbs, Dorset Lamb, local Sea Bass...

It has always been important for us to stick to our core principles, yet often there is a challenge.  We want to offer our service to as many people as possible and so the cost of ingredients and price of product equation must be balanced.

Working closely with our butcher, fishmonger, organic herb producer, egg supplier...enables us to manage costs and understand provenance and traceability.

We’re also becoming more focused on creating meals that  educate our customers to think and eat:

organic, local and seasonably

By eating a variety of fish and making it the centrepiece of several meals a week, you’ll be adding a nutrient-dense food to your diet. It's low in fat and high in many good things.

It’s a good source of protein - most varieties contain around 20g of protein per 85g serving, the same as meat; a great source of vitamin and most fish are rich sources of iron.  And we mustn’t forget omega 3.
