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

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

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.

Indonesian Nasi Goreng Recipe and ingredients - Somerset Foodie
Indonesian Nasi Goreng with Sambal Shrimp

Nasi Goreng might sound exotic, but foodies this is one of THE BEST dishes for using up all those random odds and ends lurking in the depths of your fridge - especially if you have some leftover cold rice too. The secret weapon here is kecap manis, it's a wonderfully sweet and savoury Indonesian soy sauce that tastes amazing, it's the perfect seasoning for the rice and brings all the flavours together perfectly.
Fusilli Pasta with Nduja, Black Olives, Salted Capers & Kale
Fusilli Pasta with Nduja, Black Olives, Salted Capers & Kale

There are times when a comforting bowl of pasta is all that's needed and I cook this regularly because it's so simple and tasty. It's almost a complete 'store cupboard' meal that you can throw together with minimal fuss. Fusilli pasta is my shape of choice for this dish, using a great quality pasta such as our Armando range, makes a noticeable difference.
Shoyu Pork Ramen
Shoyu Pork Ramen

In a Japanese ramen bar, the menu is divided into three main categories. This recipe is for a 'Shoyu' (soy) ramen - because soy is used to season the broth. The two other types are Miso ramen, which uses miso as the seasoning and Shio ramen that uses salt. Shoyu ramen is the most popular in Japan and there are loads of variations.

Easy Chicken & Mushroom Ramen

Ramen is one of Japan's best loved dishes and with more restaurants serving up this slurpy noodle delight, it's popularity is still on the rise here. Deeply satisfying, umami packed broth with special ramen-style noodles and toppings that add texture, freshness and flavour - this is such a special dish.
