The Source Trade Show 2015

The Source Trade Show 2015

Our first exhibition of the season at The Source & Taste of the West Show was a great success for WestCountry. Plough to Plate is now firmly established as the fine food arm of the group & the show provided the perfect platform from which to launch the new Plough to Plate brochure.   We had a stunning display of fruit & veg from across the Westcountry Fruit Sales, Canara Farm & Rungis Direct ranges from Romanesque Cauli’s which prompted a lot of ‘what on earth is that!’ & deliciously sweet Datorino tomatoes from Italy to Devon grown mushrooms from Forest Funghi and our home grown organic rainbow carrots & chard – lots of colour, character & bags of FLAVOUR!                                     Our lovely artisan Plough to Plate suppliers were delighted with the display of their mutli-award winning products & a visit from both Hobbs House Bakery & Little Pod each gifting a signed copy of their books put the cherry on the cake – speaking of which we were lucky enough to have the expertise of the wonderfully charismatic Olly from the Exploding Bakery team on our stand throughout the show – look out for their new Sour Cherry traybake due out later this year! As well as proving popular at the show, our stand was also extremely popular with Twitter users.                                           If you are looking at these pictures and thinking that...
New to our Range – The Buttermilk Confectionery Co.

New to our Range – The Buttermilk Confectionery Co.

We are very proud to announce the addition of another superb Cornish producer to our Plough to Plate range : The Buttermilk Confectionery Co. David and Tracy, who, along with a team of specially-trained fudge makers, make Buttermilk fudge by hand, using traditional recipes and old-fashioned copper pans. All of the Fudges, Marzipan and Brittles are handmade in Copper bottomed pans before being cooled overnight in wooden trays to guarantee a smooth creamy texture without the gritty crystallization or fatty aftertaste left over by many quick cooled varieties. Available in over 60 flavours from traditional Cornish Clotted Cream and Belgian Chocolate all the way to Double Deadly and Blueberry cheesecake there is something for everyone! The range from The Buttermilk Confectionery Co. has won numerous Taste of the West and Great Taste Awards one of their retail shops even features as Martin Clunes’ local pharmacy in the highly-popular ITV series Doc Martin!
