Chiltern Food Heroes: Networking Evening April 6th
Chiltern Chamber will be showcasing ‘Chiltern food heroes’ at its networking event at 6pm on Wednesday, April 6th.
This will be held at the premises of one of the participants, Auberge du Chocolat, which is letting us have the run of the factory!
This will be a great opportunity to learn about and enjoy the products of some amazing local food and drink businesses, and to network at the same time. Free and plentiful parking is available. Please register to help us keep a track of numbers!
Chiltern cold pressed rapeseed oil
is produced locally by the Mead Family near Tring. The oil is grown, pressed and bottled on our farm. It is available pure and has a light nutty flavour and is suitable for all your culinary needs. This oil has been infused with ten flavours, and we also have a range of dressings and mayonnaises.
Daws Hill Vineyard
, based in Radnage, Buckinghamhire, produces a total of between 8,000 and 10,000 bottles a year, the majority sparkling, but in good years a Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, probably oak aged, will be produced. The vineyard also produces cider using the same techniques and yeasts as for the wine.
Tours of the vineyard & winery are by appointment only. Minimum of 5 people, maximum 20. Tours last 2 to 3 hours with a full tour of the vineyard and winery, with explanation of the wine making process.
At Chiltern Ridge
we press, pasteurise and bottle your apples into delicious juice which keeps for a year.
The Kitchen Mixer
is a little company that helps make life just that little bit sweeter. Be it a cake for a special occasion, afternoon tea or fresh treats The Kitchen Mixer can bake for you. We believe there is nothing quite like the taste, or comfort, of home baking. The Kitchen Mixer is not a big company, therefore providing customers with the personal service they need. Everything is baked fresh to order.
Chiltern Natural Foods
is a roaster and flavourer of nuts, seeds and cereals which are produced without using chemicals, artificial flavours or colours. We specialize in making breakfast cereals that are actually good for you which include whole grain granolas that contain no salt or wheat and a little honey as the only sweetener. Our product range also includes four gluten free granolas and two sugar free mueslis.
If you are into nuts and seeds we make some really great flavours so come and try some!
Hazeldene Farm – Conservation Farm.
Our beef is from Traditional Herefords. Hereford cattle are often used for beef but not the Traditional Hereford such as we have at the Farm. Our lamb comes from the Oxford Down Sheep renowned for its succulent meat. Our British Lop Pig, one of the rarest native pigs, produce excellent Pork and Bacon.
The Bedford Arms
at Chenies is one of the most luxurious country house hotels in Hertfordshire. You can have your lunch, dinner and your drinks in our newly designed bar, in our famous oak-panelled restaurant (widely considered the finest in the area) or in the private dining Chess Room.
, based in Chalfont St Peter, creates traditional, tasty homemade treats with a chilli twist.
We produce a small number of core products all year around and enjoy creating bespoke flavours and short runs of seasonal lovelies depending on the time of year. Most of our products have an element of chilli in the recipe, some hotter than others!
We grow as much of the produce as possible from chillies to vegetables and source everything we cannot grow locally. We do not use food colourings, flavour enhancers, artificial sweeteners, MSG, fillers, or any additives in anything we make.
Everything we make is tested by a small band of local volunteers and spiceaholic colleagues.
Our product is available via a number of local shows, fairs, school, charity events and nationally accredited Farmers Markets. We also work with a number of farm shops, deli’s and specialist cafe outlets. Amazon also carries a selection of our range.
Being a small producer we can do specials without drama. So if you require corporate hampers, wedding favours, something for a boutique Hotel or B&B with your name and logo on rather than a high street brand, call us. We also provide retail and wholesale pricing.
Rex Artisan Bakery
is a national award-winning bakery producing healthy tasty handmade baked goods. We specialise in long fermentation, because this makes the bread very healthy to eat and provides superior flavour. We use only organic flour (wheat, rye, spelt & khorason) and reject absolutely any additives such as so-called bread improver, enzymes or other chemicals. We look to use the best ingredients and local or artisan were possible.
Our approach has resulted in national awards for everything from our baguettes, sourdoughs, ciabattas & sandwich breads through to various sweet items including croissant products and our ‘dairy free’ chocolate buns.
We manufacture every night from our Little Chalfont Bakery. Co-owner Glenn Stephens originally spent 25 years in the City but decided to start this business in 2013, originally from his garage, because of his deep and passionate interest in simple high quality food and the complete lack of availability of ‘real’ bread in this country.
Rex Bakery also received the local award of Best Artisan Bakery in Bucks in 2015.
Auberge du Chocolat
– Award winning artisan chocolate makers. Everything is handmade in Chesham in the heart of the Chilterns. Fairtrade independent
