Fresh, Local Asparagus

Our first delivery of local asparagus is due this Thursday.  Grown just five miles from our Stamford shop door, our Tallington asparagus will be on the menu to offer sustenance of course, but were you aware of its benefits to body and mind?

Asparagus contains large amounts of vitamin A, C, E and K as well as the difficult to get chromium, a mineral that helps the ability of the body’s insulin to transport glucose from bloodstream to cells.  Chromium is a commonly used as a supplement for those suffering blood sugar highs and lows that result in mood swings.

Asparagus also provides folic acid, a B vitamin.  It’s also great for your gut; it has a fibre that reduces intestinal disorders linked with anxiety and depression.

Make the most of the asparagus season, it’s good for you!

What the Duck

To mark British Sandwich Week (8th – 14th May 2016) we will be offering duck two ways.

Finally after some serious sourcing of ingredients and help from Hambleton Bakery, we will from Tuesday have on our menu “What the Duck” – pulled duck in a Hambleton manchet roll.

And as the good weather in Stamford hopefully continues, to augment our Moroccan salad box, we will be introducing an Asian inspired duck salad.  Full details will be posted to our menu page at the time.
