  • Look what we found in the Atlantic Ocean

    LWWFAtlantic 2

    Sarah Outen’'s London2London:Via the World expedition is her attempt to complete a 25,000 mile continuous loop of the globe by kayak, bicycle and rowing boat. Impressive stuff! She started on 1st April 2011 and kayaked from Tower Bridge to France; cycled 11,000 miles across Europe and Asia to Russia; kayaked to Japan; rowed across the Pacific Ocean to the Aleutian Islands; kayaked the 1,500 miles along these islands to mainland Alaska and cycled 5000 miles in the North American winter to the East Coast of the USA from where she is now rowing across the Atlantic Ocean back home to the UK. As part of her whopping 6,000 kcal a day calorie intake, Sarah has taken a few of our LWWF meals with her to provide some variation, and a morale boost, in her diet. Lightweight, easy to heat and with no need for a fridge they make a great meal no matter where you are – even on a boat in the Atlantic Ocean!

  • Yorkshire Pork Sausage Casserole - Now Gluten Free!

    LWWFSausageCasserole 2

    We’ve managed to make one of our favourite dishes gluten free by sourcing delicious gluten free sausages from our pig farmer Anna Longthorp. We appreciate that a number of our customers have food allergies and intolerances which is why we do not add any unnecessary allergens to any of our meals. In fact the flour we use in all of our recipes is gluten free and is made up of a mixture of rice flour, potato flour, tapioca starch, maize flour and buckwheat flour. This is why we have worked with Anna and our processors to make sure that the sausages we include in this dish are now gluten free, as they now contain rice flour instead of the wheat flour used previously.

    All Yorkshire Pork Sausage Casserole bought on the web is now gluten free. If you’re buying in store then please check the packaging as it may take a while for the gluten free stock to work its way into the system.

    We hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do and we’d love to hear what you think!

  • Look what we found in Sweden!

    LWWFinSweden 2

    Our latest blog post comes courtesy of two of our customers – Hayley and Marcus.

    "We’ve just returned from our extraordinary Swedish Arctic adventure near Jukkasjärvi having had a fantastic experience and, fortunately, returning with all of our limbs intact too! Blessed with eight nights of clear skies we managed to experience the spectacular Northern Lights on more than one occasion.

    We found the remoteness of our adventure thrilling, having never previously experienced true silence like it, no air traffic or even birdsong! The huge dark skies were also something to behold, especially at -27°C!

    We were really delighted with our provisions, so convenient, healthy and tasty too. Our favourite was the Wild Venison Stew with both Curries (Chicken Balti & Tikka) close runners-up and we'll definitely be buying again!"

  • Small Farmers Big Taste Competition

    LWWFSmallComp1 2

    We are excited to announce our Small Farmers, Big Taste! competition where we are giving away three luxury weekend breaks to some of our favourite countryside locations: Cumbria, Staffordshire and the North East.

    Our lucky winners will be whisked away to one of our carefully selected hotels, nestled in the British countryside, all of which have stunning views. They’ll then get to dine in a Michelin starred restaurant (the big taste element) and receive the unique opportunity to visit a farm run by one of our farmer friends. If that wasn’t enough we’ll also be including travel costs and a spa treatment!

    Our North East winners will stay at Rockliffe Hall, a superbly restored 18th century estate that features some superb spa facilities. In addition to experiencing two of their award winning restaurants our winners will dine at the Michelin stared Raby Hunt restaurant, where they can experience exceptional fine dining featuring fantastic local ingredients. To complete the prize our winners will also receive a tour around Neasham Grange, home to Robin Hirst and his beautiful herd of cattle.

    Our Cumbrian winners will get to stay at The Samling, famed for its breath taking surroundings and sumptuous and indulgent luxury. Recently named the best dining hotel in the world our Cumbrian winners will sample The Samling’s delectable menu as well as experiencing Michelin star dining at Holbeck Ghyll who use the finest local ingredients to make mouth watering dishes. To top the prize off our lucky winners will also visit Heaves Farm home to the Mason family, and learn about the exemplary welfare standards they use in producing their Rosé Veal.

    Our Staffordshire winners will stay at Hoar Cross Hall, a stunning grade II listed building, nestled in the National Forest, where they can make use of the state of the art spa facilities. As well as experiencing their mouth watering menu of truly tempting dishes our Staffordshire winners will also receive a Michelin starred dining experience at the critically acclaimed Purnells restaurant to sample their bold and innovative cooking. The prize would not be complete without a visit to Blakenhall farm, home to our chicken farmer Alec Mercer to see what makes his free range chicken so great.

  • Food Traceability: The Beauty of Small Farmers

    620x320_46_51

    With the so called “horsegate” scandal still hitting the headlines we thought we’d take the opportunity to detail more about our own food supply chain. As we have mentioned in previous newsletters we welcome the investigation laid down by the Food Standards Agency to challenge the traceability and cross contamination systems of the manufacturers involved and will probably result in a UK wide study of food authenticity (quote from FSA). We have worked hard for many years to forge close, personal relationships with all of our farmers involved in the Look What We Found! brand to ensure that we can guarantee the provenance, animal welfare standards and quality of the ingredients that we source from them. For example, we source all of our beef directly from our farmer Robin Hirst and it follows the below farm to fork route, which takes place within a few miles of the factory:

    This full supply chain traceability is applicable to all of our farmers and products, including Alec Mercer, Anna Longthorp, Roger Mason and Mark and Sue Wills. As well as ensuring traceability from all of our suppliers we implement strong factory controls and subject ourselves to extensive internal audit challenges. In addition to this we also comply with British Industry Food Safety standards for which we are also regularly audited against. We hope that you continue to enjoy our delicious meals knowing that we are using the best produce from our known and trusted small Regional British farmers. If you have any more questions surrounding this issue please contact us.
