Cut and dried

After developing a passion for charcuterie while running chalets in the French Alps, former cabinetmaker Nick Brake launched his own brand in the UK in 2014. Rutland Charcuterie Company makes salamis and air-dried meats with high welfare standards, impeccable provenance and incredible flavour. From Italian-style coppa to South-African-style biltong, this is global thinking, local eating.

Whey forward

From elderflower Cheddar to mellow blue, innovative British cheeses are melting hearts the world over.

Spreading the joy

Produced in the unspoilt Northland region of New Zealand, Tahi’s Manuka Honey is 100 per cent natural – no chemicals, no pasteurising. The bees fly freely among the country’s native manuka flowers, transforming the nectar into rich, golden honey, which is then carefully collected. The result: a sweet, aromatic treat with a smooth and creamy texture.
