British Food Fortnight: Bookham Fine Foods
I love going to Farmers’ Markets and it was while shopping at one that I discovered Bookham Fine Foods, makers of delicious cheese, fresh pasta and sauces. Bookham Fine Foods is a family run business based in Sussex. Many of the ingredients they use are sourced locally and according to season. I have tried many of their products and they all taste wonderful!
Bookham Fine Foods sell at Farmers’ Markets in Hampshire, Surrey and Sussex, so you can visit their stall and try some of the products before you buy them. A list of shows and markets is posted on the website each month. You can also search for local stockists and shop online. You could try one of the following:
1. Not Just a Pasta Cheese (formerly known as Twineham Grange Farmer’s Hand Cheese) – a delicious medium fat hard cheese which is very similar to Parmesan but made with pasturised milk. Great with pasta and delicious in cheese sauces. Not Just a Pasta Cheese costs £8.50 for 700g but can be bought in smaller pieces from stockists and Farmers’ Markets.
2. Fresh Ravioli – lots of delicious varieties that change according to the season. The Slow-Roasted Winter Vegetable and Butternut Squash and Ricotta, both from their current range, would be perfect for a warming Autumn supper. Ravioli costs£2.99 for 200g pack.
3. South Downs Butter – delicious on crumpets and hot crusty bread, you just can’t beat the taste of real butter! Available in 250g packs costing £1.99.
