Why are fermented foods so special?


Fermentation is the natural process by which friendly yeasts and bacteria metabolise the carbohydrates in food. Nutrients such as enzymes, vitamins and minerals are boosted and become easier to digest and complex flavours are developed. Not only that, but the presence of these live organisms are probiotic and contribute to the diversity of gut bacteria (gut microbiome). This matters because studies now show what tradition has long believed, that gut health has a direct affect on our general health and well-being.

In short, fermented foods are more digestible, more delicious and more nutritious than the raw ingredients they are made form.

Healthy Gin

There's nothing wrong with a drop of the hard stuff so say some, but when paired with Kombucha it's guaranteed to add some 'zing' to your life. Our beautiful Gunpowder Green Kombucha with hibiscus and ginger pairs brilliantly with gin. Add ice a generous splash of your favourite gin, you do have a favourite doon't you :) and top up with Kombucha - gorgeous colour and a delicious cocktail.

Shakshuka - Eggs in spicy tomato sauce

Often served for breakfast but equally delicious at any time. Shakshuka is a dish of eggs poached in a spicy tomato sauce. We have this often, its quick, absolutely delicious and best served with sourdough bread. Add a teaspoon (to taste) of our fermented Harissa spice paste to a little oil in a medium hot pan for 30 seconds, then add a tin(s) of tomatoes. Mush the tomatoes and bring to a simmer before cracking the eggs into the sauce. I like to make a little indent in the sauce before I drop the egg into it. then simmer until the eggs are as you like them. When cooked spoon into a bowl, top with coriander or chopped spring onion and tuck in.
