Lunch London Smoke & Cure Ross says “This weeks food is gonna have you singing from the rooftops. Our Texan-style slow smoked short rib is back! Smoked overnight, we’re talking 93 degrees, baby, and that means SUCCULENT. Special this week is smoked organic pork belly. You can have either of these served in a bun or a salad box, piled high to fill your bellies. Also, we’ll have our delicious smoked cauliflower, packed full of flavour and very affordable. Drinks specials too with every meal.”
Natural wine – Wine Scouts Pedro says “I’ll open the beautiful, organic ITALIAN red Chianti Colli Aretini from Paterna: tons of dark bloody fruits. Super fresh and tight, just enough softness with an irresistible saltiness to the acidity. Surprisingly long. Or take it from The New York Times wine writer Eric Asimov: “Earthy, pure and balanced, with persistent flavors of red and dark fruits and minerals.”
Cheese & cured meat – Capo Caccia Antonio says “I’ll have smoked swordfish with cinnamon and cloves, selection of Sardinian blue cheese, organic sheep milk caciotta, wild boar salami, ash salami truffle salami carasau bread and smoked ricotta back in stock!”

We take our time to make delicious produce using the very best ingredients which we’re proud to present to you and confidently say it is both authentic and fresh.
This week we’ll have some stunning sashimi-grade smoked salmon, kiln roast salmon and hot-smoked prawns. We’ll have a table full of cheeses, smoked and unsmoked, and a cracking range of charcuterie meats from organic smoked belly through to our Cure No.8 rare smoked duck. Come and put your chops round some samples!”
Cakes – Brett & Bailey Here’s Joe & Matt’s cake gossip for the week. “With figs at their very best right now, we’ll be bringing along one of our very favourite things – a baked fig and honey cheesecake with notes of rose and cardamom, and sprinkled with pistachios and pomegranate seeds. There’ll also be a special guest appearance from our Top Banana cake – rich chocolate sponge with salted dulce de leche and banana milkshake buttercream – on the cake parade, next to our double carrot cake, chocolate Guinness cake, and apple and salted caramel cake.
There’ll also be peanut butter bars, peanut butter and milk choc chip cookies (because who doesn’t love peanut butter?); cardamom knots; sticky buns; indulgent Fairtrade dark chocolate brownies; blueberry, lemon and poppyseed bakewells; and fat squares of plum and stem ginger crumble cake.
We’ll also have jars of all our handmade preserves – come early if you want to top up on peach and prosecco, as we’re down to our last couple of pots – and this week’s bomboloni will come filled with stracciatella-style vanilla choc chip custard.
Missing the market? Make up for it by visiting the Brett & Bailey online shop and order a whole cake to collect next weekend. See you soon!”
