Sandwich named after customer

Our Stamford street-food inspired sandwich shop has rewarded one of our most regular customers by naming a special sandwich after him.

Co-owner Jim Davis explained: “Rich Beach has been coming in to our shop since we opened either just for lunch or bringing in clients of his media company.  He’s also very keen to try something new, so we invented our take on a Cuban Sandwich, sweet ham, porchetta, Swiss cheese, pickles & our sour orange mojo sauce on toasted panini roll, and in honour of Rich, named it “The Cubano Beach”.

“I think I was probably one of the first customers through the door when Jim opened Bread Meat Cheese,” said Stamford film-maker Rich Beach of Beach Media. “I’d seen the New Yorker on the menu, they had named it “What’s Your Beef?” and realised these guys were sandwich connoisseurs like me!

“And once I started bringing in film crews and visiting almost daily, they obviously got the measure of my tastes.  And now this: they’ve designed and named a sandwich for me!  And it’s amazing!  Forget bucket lists.  I can die a happy man right now!”

The Macho Burrito

We are pleased to welcome on board Claire from @MachoBurrito – having spent the last couple of weeks presenting our sandwiches, we thought it only right that our resident expert in Mexican cuisine gets to present some of her specialities.  So from Monday 6th June come and try The Macho Burrito: chipotle marinated shredded chicken served with zesty pico de gallo, fresh guacamole & refried beans all wrapped in a soft flour tortilla.


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.

Come & join us – we’re recruiting

Moroccan Salad

From tomorrow, Tuesday 26th April, we will be adding to our lunchtime menu at least one salad a week.

Lunch in Stamford tomorrow could be our Moroccan Salad: roasted red pepper cous cous with feta, chickpeas, sultanas, apricot, spring onion, lemon, flat leaf parsley & mint.

Come and see us in Red Lion Street, PE9 1PA for a salad, a toast, a special sandwich, brownies, coffee…

A Lunchtime Sandwich, A Lunchtime Salad,

Following a great start for our Stamford sandwich shop, we’re pleased to be once again adding to our range.  So not only a very special sandwich for lunch in Stamford, now locally made brownies from Kate’s Little Cakes in Bytham, hand-cooked crisps from Corkers Farm in Ely and soon to be introduced our lunchtime salads.  Like our sandwiches and toasts, our salads will be a little more interesting than the norm.  We have asked our supporters to tell us the combinations they think would make their lunch a special one.  If you have any ideas of your own, please let us know here.
