It took some time but in the end the secretive people behind the wall at Victorinox fitted me up with a meeting with their exclusive UK importer. So at long last I can now purchase their products - in protective knife sleeves – from some nice folk in Leicestershire. Job done.
who you are. It’s always nice to welcome people into the shop at Horsforth on a Monday or Tuesday. Aside from the obvious point of having a shop we enjoy talking about food and of course having a general gossip about who’s doing what and where they’re doing it. So (remembering that we must at all times [...]
After searching high and low I had some luck with some people with some sense and some say-so to sell me some Wusthofs. Productive first encounter with a nice chap called Andrew whose company have a licence to officially distribute WUSTHOF knives to retailers in the United Kingdom.

Mr AWT caught stealing Cheese? Surely not? It has however been confirmed that AWT, a man of such character, integrity and public popularity has been apprehended syphoning some bits and pieces at the self service checkout. I’m sort of lost for words but then again i’m not. Nice one AWT for the media hype, admission that you [...]
It amazes me the amount of people who take no real interest in the food they eat. I’m not talking about calories, fats and sugar – you combat that with exercise and a positive approach to the way you live your life – i’m talking about taste. Basic seasoning. Simple principles that literally transform a cut of meat, a [...]
