For a second year, Selfridges Food Hall (something we're quite addicted to here at Hot Dinners) has launched Meet the Makers, where they showcase 12 artisan producers and it's all backed by some very interesting dinners too.
Those included are:
- Wild Food by MASH: This sounds very interesting, MASH provide foraged food for restaurants worldwide and this is the first time they'll be packaging it up.
- Newton and Pott jams and Chutneys: We absolutely LOVE the Tamarillo Chutney from them.
- Ban Poitin - properly manufactured (and beautiful looking) bottles of the deadly stuff from Ireland.
- Beri Da - vinegars and chutneys from Wales using handpicked Aronia berries.
- Eat Chic - high end peanut butter cups, including roasted almond butter, hazelnut butter or cashew butter.
- Canesmith & co - gourmet sweets including Beer & Peanut Caramels
- The Marshmallowist - well known from many street food markets, many flavoured marshmallows
- Cheeky Food co - Indian chutneys and more based on family recipes.
- Brock and Morten - a family run British Rapeseed Oil business.
- Grubworkz - chilled foods produced sous vide style
- Mons Cheeses - originally founded in France - this is the British arm of the cheesemakers
- Mighty Bee - London basedd ans the first to produce cold pressed coconut water from raw and completely untouched virgin varieties.
- Moral Fiber - healthy ingredients from Hertfordshire, including savoury bites made from courgettes and peppers.
- The Chocolatier - a fusion of eastern spices and western influences, including rose and cinnamon ganache and chilli and lime truffle.
