Proud Sponsors of The Artisan Food Market

Cold Pressed Extra Virgin Rapeseed Oil Rapeseed oil has grown dramatically in popularity over the last few years, topping the leader board as the healthier choice for cooking. It has the lowest saturated fat content of any culinary oil half that of olive oil a great health benefit considering current advice confirms a diet high in saturated fat is linked to poorer heart health. It has less monounsaturated fat, but more polyunsaturated fat, which helps to lower LDL cholesterol.

It's also rich in Vitamin E and omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids.

Rapeseed oil is stable at high temperatures which makes it a good choice for frying and roasting and it's also a great substitute for butter in baking, reducing the saturated fat content of some family favourite cakes by over 50%. It's produced from the bright yellow Rapeseed crop that we see in fields all over the UK during the summer months and is recommended that our choice is cold pressed, but why?

Fussels Fine Foods has been producing single cold pressed rapeseed oil for the last 10 years from their third generation farm in Rode, Somerset. With a family passion for farming and good quality British food, Andy Fussell and his team grow, harvest and press Rapeseed to arrive at a carefully crafted, healthy oil that is highly versatile and incredibly delicious.

Supported by Pinkster Gin

Perhaps more the ingredients for a game of Cluedo, but that’s how the business was born.

It all came about when founder Stephen realised wine and beer no longer agreed with him. A keen maker of sloe liqueurs and other concoctions, he turned his attention to gin and started experimenting at home, mashing assorted fruits with different spirit strengths.

He wasn’t intentionally creating a pink drink, it’s just that after working his way through an entire fruit bowl, raspberry delivered the best flavour.

With the recipe developed, pals started encouraging him to go commercial.

G&J, one of the country’s oldest distillers, was recruited to the cause. They produce the core spirit with five botanicals to our original recipe which we painstakingly developed over several years.

We then macerate with a further three botanicals, including fresh, plump raspberries grown nearby our rural base outside Cambridge, to produce the finished gin that is Pinkster.

After positive feedback from tastings at events and food fairs, Stephen took the plunge, quitting his job as a bean counter and ending his London commute, whilst reassuring his long-suffering wife that it would all come good in the end.

Over the intervening years, thirst for Pinkster has grown and from humble beginnings we’re now proud to be stocked by the likes of Majestic Wine, Marks and Spencer, Harvey Nichols, and Selfridges as well as dozens of farm shops and food halls across the country. Stephen still personally oversees the production, ensuring consistency from batch to batch of fresh fruit.

Ironically, being told to quit wine was the best advice he’s ever received.

Supported by Luscious

Luscious was founded with a mission to create not only a delicious, award-winning product but also a sustainable brand and business. With respective backgrounds in organic farming and design-led branding & marketing, the two founders of Luscious® ice cream have created an award-winning range of Soil Association certified organic ice cream and fresh chilled custard.

Based in The Organic Dairy on the Neston Estate in Wiltshire, just 6 miles from beautiful Bath and 5 miles from lovely Bradford on Avon; they make irresistible all-natural flavours using the very best ingredients. The Jersey milk is collected every day on the farm and the eggs and cream are also locally sourced. From heavenly Madagascan Vanilla to finest chocolate and roasted Sicilian hazelnuts, all other ingredients are carefully sourced from organic certified suppliers.

The farm is high-welfare and is a haven for wildlife, with a wide biodiversity. It uses solar energy and its own water source, as well as innovative hi-tech methods to ensure use of antibiotics is kept right down and that herbal remedies can be utilised for the animals wherever possible.

Luscious is the proud winner of the 2018 coveted Crumbs Award for Best Food Producer. They also have a 2018 Gold Taste of The West Award for their chocolate hazelnut ice cream and are currently shortlisted for Best Food Producer in the Wiltshire Life Awards.
