Ben Tollworthy - Somerset Foodie

I've sourced authentic foodie ingredients from all over the world for twenty years and worked with professional chefs to recreate iconic global street food dishes.

Through Somerset Foodie you can buy authentic ingredients and follow my inspiring recipes. You can also book into my informal Foodie Workshops near Bath & Frome.

I'm on a mission to transform the meals you create at home, bringing the best of the global street food scene to your family table and taking you on a new foodie adventure every day.

Think differently about food shopping...

You'll find artisan ingredients from all over the world, but also the best from the makers on our doorstep here in the West Country.

Our mission is to push for sustainable diversification within the food industry and support the independent food movement. We are an alternative foodie shopping experience to the price-driven, big gun supermarkets.

We offset our carbon footprint by making deliveries in our 100% Electric ZERO EMISSION van and packing all our raw wholefood ingredients in 100% compostable wood-pulp bags with biodegradable paper labels.

Somerset Foodie Recipe for Seafood Paella
Spanish Seafood Paella

The beauty of making a paella - NO STIRRING! Get it on and go and do something else, the results are stunning. There are so many variations of this Catalan classic and (just like a risotto) there are so many different ingredients that you can use. When by the coast, fish and shellfish rule, the further inland, chicken, rabbit, sausage are the key. To make a good paella, there are a few things that you need to get right, the rest will take care of itself.
