Here at Hot Dinners we've long been fans of the Holloway Road cheese and wine shop Provisions, which kept us well supplied in pâté and Dusty Knuckle potato sourdough throughout most of the lockdowns. So we're so pleased to hear that they're expanding, opening a second shop in Hackney.
"The second Provisions will retain many elements of our original concept," they say, "while also showcasing new products that we have been sourcing in recent years." The shop on Hackney Road will, as with the original, focus on organic wine and farmhouse cheese. But there will be a different selection here to Holloway. For wine there's a "strong focus on the South of France" and the cheese will be from different producers.
What we're most interested in is the idea of the weekly changing selection of sandwiches that'll be on sale, made using the ingredients in the shop
The good news for customers like us of their original store is that the opening of Hackney, which has more storage space, will allow them to reopen their wine bar at Provisions Holloway. That should coincide with the opening in February.
