Support our farmers, fisheries & suppliers during COVID-19

Cookery School suppliers

We are still excited by our most sustainable cookery school award.  Being runner up with such illustrious competitors as Daylesford Organic and River Cottage is an honour.  As we are in the middle of London with heavy traffic pollution and surrounded by buildings rather than fields with grazing cattle and clucking poultry, our suppliers are more important than ever.  Recycling is imperative as we have little room for storage so First Mile have aided us in this.
