At Heirloom we work with some of the best suppliers in the U.K, as the seasons change so does the menu. Coming into Spring expect to see wild garlic, asparagus, morel mushrooms, lamb & flat fish. Listed below is some of the different places our produce comes from and the dishes we have on the menu at the moment.
Fruit & Veg mainly comes from a growers collective based in rural Kent, they use a courier service to send in produce from around 20 different farms. They grow anything from squash, heritage beetroots to rare varieties of apples and pears. Wild garlic will be appearing in and around north London woods over the next month and we will be out collecting some for a spring lamb garnish.
Harvest London is based in Walthamstow and grows old varieties of lettuce, brassicas and herb. Currently on the menu we have Komatsuna which has a a slight mustard flavour, this is wilted down with potatoes and served with fish. Also on the menu is red wizard choi, simular to bak choi but with a more delicate flavour.
Forest coal pit farm raise welsh black pigs in the Brecon Beacons national park, there pigs roam free on there farm and woodland. Look out for different dishes on the menu especially the slow cooked shoulder on our Sunday roast.
Westons rose veal is based in Devon, they farm pedigree Jersey dairy cows. The female cows produce milk whereas the male cows are used for the rose veal, they spend all there time on the paddock and eat 100% grass diet. We have a shnitzil on the weekday and brunch menu at the minute.
