Speciality Food New Producer Awards 2017
"BEST OF BRITISH" SHORTLIST - OLD RECTORY PRESERVES
Provenance, seasonality and quality of ingredients are integral to Old Rectory Preserves, artisan maker of multiple award-winning preserves, jellies and marmalades. The flavours are inspired by classic combinations of fruit and herbs, and where possible use heritage fruit varieties. Recently, the producer has collaborated with the Elveden Estate to launch several new flavours, using flowers and fruit foraged from the estate throughout the seasons. These will be included in innovative dishes served at the Elveden Courtyard Restaurant as well as sold as individual products.
Judged by John Shepherd, Managing Director of Partridges, who commented: “The Red Gooseberry & Elderflower Preserve is well balanced with a good texture of gooseberry and a slight hint of elderflower to complement. The Hedgerow Harvest is nicely sharp, but a sweetness comes through towards the end.”
