Welcome to our latest and largest catalogue! Christmas seems early this year. We ask ourselves (yet again) where the year went at such speed. As the festive season is almost upon us many of you will be pleased to know our confectioners have come to the party as usual! Inside these pages you will find many treats for those you cherish and don’t forget yourself. Just how many years has it been since panettone joined our lives as a treat, then somehow became much enjoyed tradition? Quite a few. So many occasions are celebrated with some form of feast or special dish weaving food into memories associated family, love and special times. Our Christmas containers signal the arrival of such times. The rich vanilla aroma of the panettone as they are piled into our showroom delight the senses and prime our palates – and then the taste of those distinctive Rhum cuneesi and divine nougat confirm that it is indeed time to celebrate. Come 2013 we will have been in business for 20 years – so it seems our youngest ‘child’ has turned into an adult. Of course, things do change, and this year we would like to pay tribute to John Taylor, who had worked for, or with us, for ten years and passed away unexpectedly on the eve of another travel adventure, in a manner of which he would have approved, his packed bag beside him. 1

A great friend and source of recipe ideas to all who happened upon him or purposely came to see him in our showroom, Johnnie shared his recipes off-the-cuff, but rarely committed them to paper. We luckily did capture two of them, and include these in this year’s recipe selection in memory of him. Do enjoy them – and the good company they keep – some of our favourites from our classes held during the year. Every year we think we will not find anything new and that we should just be content with what we have, but food, it seems, never stands still. We are looking forward to playing with the dried Noras peppers from La Chinata, something we have wanted to add to our range ever since we first tasted them in a paella years ago. Claudio and his family have been busy at Giusti and have some new offerings. Giusti Bianco, plus a fig and a raspberry balsamic. Good flavours, and cutely packaged. Gorgeous little gifts and treats. Is a healthy raw bar snack your thing? Try the Spanish Bonvallis dried fruit bars - and don't forget your Marcona almonds. This year we have some treats in tins from Doña Jimena. Think Spanish chocolate with cherries and a few other combinations. Spanish chocolate is a different style to French and Belgian. We invite you to enjoy the new lower prices on a few of our perennials including Forum and Giusti vinegar and La Chinata paprika. Spend what you save on even more treats for yourself! Have a wonderful 2013 – Buon Appetito

Chocolate Cherry & Raspberry Napoleon 400g jar Stonehouse Kirsch cherries, pitted or 370ml Sabarot Griotte pitted cherries, plus 2 Tbsp liqueur of your choice e.g. grappa, Cointreau or Kirsch 300ml cream

100g Valrhona dark chocolate 250g Sabato flaky puff pastry 200g Ciresa mascarpone 25-50g Valrhona Grué de cacao (cocoa nibs) ½ cup Fresh As freeze-dried whole raspberries

Preheat the oven to 200°C. Drain the cherries and place the juice (and liqueur, if using) in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil and cook until slightly syrupy and reduced by half. Remove from the heat, cool and reserve. Halve the cherries and reserve. Put 100mls of the cream in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove the cream from the heat and add the dark chocolate. Stir until smooth. Reserve, stirring occasionally. Roll the pastry out on a floured surface into a rectangle about 30cm wide by 30cm long. Prick the pastry all over with a fork and place on a baking tray. Place another tray on top (and a weight if the tray isn’t very heavy) and place in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until well browned. Uncover, return to the oven and bake for a further 5-10 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool. Cut the pastry into two rectangles 10cm wide by 25cm long. Reserve the off cuts. Beat the mascarpone and the remaining cream together until thick. Fold the drained cherries, the grué de cacao and the freezedried raspberries into the cream and mascarpone mix.


Place one pastry rectangle on a serving platter. Spread the mascarpone mixture evenly over it. Place the other pastry rectangle on top. Push it down a little so it sticks. Crumble the pastry offcuts and pat them onto the exposed cream mix at the sides. When the chocolate and cream mix is beginning to thicken, pour it over the top pastry rectangle. Allow to set. Serve in slices with a little of the cherry syrup. Serves 6

It is a pure, hard style of liquorice. Liquorice of this quality protects the respiratory system, combats sore throats, acts as an expectorant and regulates the digestive system.
