Always acknowledging the time honoured ways in which we produce and eat good food, we have sought to encourage producers to remain faithful to simple, artisinal processes, making products suitable for classical and contemporary applications. We are strong supporters of local producers as well as being importers of a vast number of food, kitchenware, and tableware from around the globe.
