Summer selections

We’ve been shopping (once again) – here’s some our favourite things in the Appetite kitchen…


Grate reads

A trusted source of cheese knowledge, we take book recommendations from Moz Murphy seriously – and she tells us that Ned Palmer’s A Cheesemonger’s History of the British Isles (£9.99, signed) and A Cheesemonger’s Compendium of British & Irish Cheese (£14.99, signed) are essential reading. Available at grate, 252 Jesmond Road Jesmond, NE2 1LD, tel 0191 649 2528,


Honey, honey

One of our favourite tastes of summer, The Travelling Bee Co’s Lavender Provence Honey has a wonderful runny texture, opaque golden colour and scent – while the lavender cuts through the sweetness with a delicate floral note. £9 at


Chef’s choice

An essential choice for many of our favourite chefs, and in the Appetite kitchen, Maldon Salt is simply the best. We always keep a tub to-hand – while new products including chilli, garlic, Himalayan pink salt, Kalahari salt, and smoked salt are wonderful additions to any kitchen. Various prices, see for more info.



Perfect for summer sunshine and Pride Month, this Power of Love Chenin Blanc from South Africa is full-bodied and soft yet vibrant with delicious pear, peach and baked apple flavours. £17.99 at Carruthers & Kent 3A Elmfield Road, Gosforth, NE3 4AY, tel 0191 213 1818,


Barbecue season

In the elite barbecuing world, mop sauces are a must to keep meat moist over the fire pit – and this one developed by MEAT-LUST is inspired by the hickory, hokey-cokey, super smoky outdoor-grilled flavours which elevate barbecue to a whole new level. £2.99 at Turnbull’s Northumbrian Food Hall, Alnwick, NE66 2DJ,
