Homemade Scotch Eggs
Royal grocer Fortnum & Mason claim to have invented Scotch eggs in the 18th Century. From such majestic beginnings they have become a rather nasty supermarket snack food but proper homemade Scotch eggs are a revelation.
We make them fresh every weekday (unless we're making homemade sausage rolls - but that's another story). A free-range boiled egg is encased in seasoned sausage meat, rolled in breadcrumbs and deep-fried. They are satisfying, truly delicious and have a loyal (some might say fanatic) following - we sell dozens a day. Try it cut in half with a dollop of hot English mustard.
Just like you remember them when you were six. In all their multi-coloured, nostalgic glory, we weigh our sweets out by the quarter (or 100 grams for those too young to know what on earth a 'quarter' is).
Lemon bonbons, jelly babies, sweet peanuts, lemon fizzers, cherry lips, rhubarb & custard, liquorice torpedoes, milk bottles, candy whistles. Can't decide? Try a mixture in a little paper bag. Go home happy.
Cartwright & Butler
Mere youngsters compared to some of our products, Cartwright & Butler started making a range of jams, chutneys and preserves in Yorkshire in 1981.
But their flavours and packaging are all about good, honest, old-fashioned taste. The lemon curd is smooth, creamy and zesty, the English breakfast marmalade thin-cut with a real citrus bite.
We love their beautiful jars with their ceramic lids and clip-fastenings - and can think of lots of uses for them after the contents have been consumed. www.cartwrightandbutler.co.uk
Created in the spirit of London's long and disreputable history of gin drinking, Mother's Ruin produce a range of delicious fruit liqueurs, flavoured with fruits from a Walthamstow garden and a Cumbrian family orchard.
Truly a labour of love and often made in limited batches depending on the season and availability of fruits, each year fruit is steeped in gin or vodka to intensely infuse the spirit with the full depth of flavour.
Try traditional Sloe Gin, delicate and spicy Rhubarb & Ginger, fragrant summer Raspberry or heady Gooseberry & Elderflower vodkas. Lovely on their own or as a base for exciting cocktail mixing experiments. www.mothersruin.net
A little taste of the seaside in a jolly tin. Furniss Gingerbread is made to an original recipe from founder, John Cooper Furniss, dating back to 1886.
Crunchy, spicy, rich and buttery with a good ginger kick, this is just the thing for dunking in a cup of tea.
We also have their Cornish Fairings - Furniss are the only bakery licensed to make these spicy ginger biscuits which were traditionally sold at fairs around the country as souvenirs, treats for children or bought by men for their sweethearts. www.furniss-foods.co.uk
Moffat Toffee & Tablet
Not a traditional caramel toffee, Moffat Toffee is a boiled sweet made in the town of Moffat near the Scottish border.
Hard to describe, Moffat toffees are noted for their lemony, tangy centres.
The Moffat Toffee family recipe is thought to have been passed down to the present owner's great-grandmother, Janet Cook Johnstone, in the late 19th century.
We also have their moreish Scottish Tablet. Made from sugar, condensed milk and butter, tablet is similar to fudge but has a more grainy, crumbly texture and a slight saltiness. It is, as any Scot will tell you, quite unique. www.moffattoffeeshop.com
'Beautiful Flavour, Delicious Rich Cup' it says on the tin and we can only agree.
A strong but smooth full-bodied blended tea made from loose East African leaves.
A firm favourite, customers buy tins and tins of it, sometimes so much we wonder how they can possibly drink it all. www.facebook.com/Campbellstea
A pallet of Campbell's Tea arrives at A.Gold.
