We appreciate the help and support of our wonderful local business partners.

Here are some of the fantastic companies we work with.




Pretty Local

www.kingsbridge.prettylocal.co.uk

As well as being one of the most beautiful parts of the country, the South Hams offers a fantastic array of high quality food products. However, unless you personally know your farmer, these can be complicated to get hold of on a weekly shopping trip and buying local produce can become an arduous task.

Pretty Local has found the solution; bringing all our sellers together in one location. We spent considerable time scouring the South Hams meeting local producers and finding the best products; we can’t deny it’s been an absolute pleasure - and we're still going!

Each of our sellers are located in South Devon and the majority are within 20-mile radius of Kingsbridge, keeping food miles to a minimum and supporting local producers and businesses.

We are showcasing the quality and the diversity of the South Hams food and drink. Suppliers include 'Wild Food Devon' who source fresh seafood from Salcombe and land scallops, lobster and wet fish from their own fishing boat, 'Favis of Salcombe' who land crab from their own boat in Salcombe, dairy produce from 'Challon’s Combe Organics' at Aveton Gifford, East Portlemouth-based ‘Mays and Green’ who make their own delicious salad dressings, high-welfare meat from ‘Lidstones’, and ‘Sladesdown Farm’, ‘Cheezeboard’ near Totnes and ‘Spindlebrook Farm’ who grow vegetables and salads without the use of machinery.

Pretty Local is just like an online supermarket, except the supply chain is short, so every time you buy you’re directly supporting your local farmers, fishermen and artisans.

This is currently a weekly market. You can order up until midnight on Wednesday for a delivery on the Friday or Saturday (on agreement).

Le Guest Chef

https://www.leguestchef.co.uk/

The Chef- Jean-Philippe Bidart (JP) is a local classically trained French Chef with over 30 years’ experience and is still passionate about food. Most recently he held the position of Head chef at the award-winning Pub, The Millbrook Inn at South Pool. He has won several industry awards over the years.

‘Le Guest Chef’ was an idea born out of the desire to be more flexible in work patterns, to spend more time with family and to be able to cook more creatively for smaller numbers of people who appreciate the food he can offer. All food is cooked from fresh locally sourced ingredients of the highest quality. Suppliers include- Lidstones of Kingsbridge and Muckwell Farm for Meat, Excel Shellfish for crab, S&J Fisheries in Ivybridge for Fish.

Private Chef Services

Food delivery service- This would be food delivered to your home or holiday home that is mostly prepared and needs all but reheating and minor finishing touches. JP will discuss your preferences with you and create a bespoke menu which he will deliver directly himself and talk through the details of finishing and serving your meal. A minimum number of people for this service.

Cookery Demonstrations- JP is well known for his cooking demos, butchery and fish masterclasses. This year at the Dartmouth Food Festival, he cooked rabbit in six different ways. For butchery classes his speciality is pheasant, pigeon, wild boar and venison. The most interesting Fish masterclass was a 70KG yellow fin Tuna which was flown especially from the West Indies for the event. Demos can take place at your home or hired venue.

Full Private Chef Service- This is the full private chef experience where JP comes to cook at your venue, home or holiday home. Waiting staff can be arranged for you or this can be for you to organise.

Prices will vary but please feel free to enquire with no obligation.

Wild Artichokes

www.wildartichokes.co.uk

At Wild Artichokes, we are passionate about good food and hospitality.

We set out to create unforgettable dining experiences wherever we are.

Our business holds pop up dining events in and around the South Hams, provides catering and organisation for weddings and events, food for private dining at home and education at our cookery demonstrations. All this and much more, in fact any other fun stuff that involves food and community.

We believe that the best way to enjoy good food and hospitality is to share it.

When Jane Baxter met Sam Miller … it was back in 2005 just as the doors of the Riverford Field Kitchen were about to open.

They struck up a unique partnership during the five years they worked together - a dynamic combination – Jane cooks, Sam organises- a force to be reckoned with!

Our pop up dining events

…..are at the heart of the business. They are built on the foundation of feasting – sharing tables and sharing food with fellow diners (you know how we feel about sharing).

You can expect a seasonal set menu with a variety of dishes generous in flavour, brought to your table to pass around, just like you would at home.

We run a relaxed, friendly service and just love to see our guests kick back and rub their tummies after a good meal. As more than one of our guests have said ‘elasticated waistbands highly recommended!’
