We’ve got some nice new treats this week including the locally made Perinelli that some of you have been asking about. Made just down in Penge and using beautiful free range Devon pork its a real winner.

We’ve also got a our normal range of classic, best quality cheeses including an unctious triple cream brie (very naughty) and a super 18 month Comte that rightfully deserves its place at the top table.

Partnering all that will be our very own sashimi-grade smoked salmon and packs of hot smoked pork belly, you’ll not be left wanting.”

Brett & Bailey: Rhubarbara Streisand

Cakes – Brett & Bailey  Joe says “Here’s the not-so-skinny…  If there’s one thing January needs more of, it’s glamour – so this weekend we’ve managed to coax our very favourite diva, Rhubarbra Streisand, out of retirement and back onto the cake parade. This delectable almond gateau is layered with tender Yorkshire rhubarb and rose-scented buttercream, and topped with melt-in-the-mouth meringues. Her latest farewell tour begins this Saturday – come along early, as she’s bound to sell out fast.

We’ll also have some brand new squares of raspberry and lemon sponge with pistachio crumble; a baked blueberry and lemon cheesecake; triple chocolate cookies; peanut butter bars; plus old favourites including chocolate Guinness cake, double carrot cake, and a pistachio and honey gateau scattered with bee pollen and raspberry crumbs.

You can also expect a big batch of semlor (again, don’t leave it too long to head down for one as we had some disappointed faces last week); salted chocolate brownies; soft and buttery cardamom knots; and a basketful of sticky buns.

Plus! Great Taste Award-winning marmalade, one or two of jars of homemade lemon curd, and four other flavours of our finest handmade jam.
