Hello,

How far does the broccoli you eat travel before it hits your plate? Many of the 'fresh' vegetables available on supermarket shelves in the UK are sourced in Africa and have travelled 4,000 and 6,000 miles to be with us.

Who wants to eat food that's got more frequent flyer points than we do? Last week we spent a tasty three days at the Speciality Fine Food show in London and noticed that the hot topic of conversation was foodmiles. Give it some thought the next time you reach out for something on the shelf. Try local- it tasted pretty good to us.

  • Harrods

    What makes Britain truly British? Marmite and Minis? Bobbies and black cabs? Perhaps, but that's not the half of it. Truth is that today's true Brit loves bhangra as much as bangers and is as likely to be from the West Indies as the West Country. True Brit or Truly British? From 5th September to 15th October, Harrods highlights the best of Britain.

    Our range of Tea and Philosophy is now on sale in the Harrods foodhall. We will be sharing our teas with Harrods customers each day between 11am and 5pm this week. Pop in for a cuppa and a chat.

    Lovemarks
    .
    Lovemarks are a new way of thinking about the things we love. Lovemarks are better than brands, because they are about Love and Respect: they speak to us as thinking and feeling human beings.

    We were recently voted as a company that goes beyond being just a product. They called us a 'lovemark'.

    If you have a product or brand that you love more than you should, it can registered online. Probably just another ad man's new idea, but we were flattered anyhow.

    have you got a lovemark?

    We get lots of inspirational letters from people who want to share what they do in their lives. we thought we would share this one from Pi who lives in Spain. Keep up the good work Pi.

    "As you can see i'm involved in lots of things, just nice and happy for making a good life. I'm sending you photos from my work in Senegal which is a fantastic sanitary project working in a hospital and offering free assistance and medication because Senegal has a private health only." Pi-M

    let us know what you are up to

    Tea Time
    Light, lemony, and full of coconut and cream cheese this cake is a showstopper! This is one of those recipes that you need to put directly into your recipe file and bake without delay.

    Thanks Leslie for the recipe, it is every bit as good as you said it would be.
