Simple, consistent, delicious and uncomplicated

That's our recipe for great food. Harbour & Jones has always championed using local producers and eating food in season, when it is at its best. We know that British farmers and growers offer some incredible produce; whether that is top quality, high welfare meat, sustainably caught fish or sparklingly fresh fruit and vegetables, so why look elsewhere?

Seasonal Product - Tomatoes


We may eat them all year round, but tomatoes really come into their own in the summer as they need lots of lovely sunshine to imbue them with that delicious sweet tomatoey flavour. Look out for heritage varieties which can come in a rainbow of colours including green, yellow, orange, black and purple. These look beautiful in a simple salad with a few torn herbs, a drizzle of oil and a sprinkle of sea salt.

Food Facts

A whole lot of truffle

White truffles are the most expensive fungi on the planet, which means that discerning (and very wealthy) gourmets have no qualms about spending fairly large amounts of cash on them.

In 2007, for example, a white truffle weighing a mind-boggling 3.3 lbs was sold at auction in Hong Kong for a record-breaking $330,000. Perhaps that explains why thousands of pigs spend their lives rooting around in the soil looking for them. And we thought they were just hungry!
