Sourcing locally is a vital part of The Late Chefs’ approach to developing a menu and recipes. The fact that The Late Chefs’ food can be found at a number of local farmers markets as well as community shops is one of the prime ways that The Late Chef takes time searching for great local food producers.
Markets are becoming a key part of the community economy and offer a wide and varied range of produce from cheese, fruit & vegetables, meats, dairy, eggs, bread, preserves, specialist food producers including Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Asian and more. These markets offer the ingredients and ideas for recipes and creating the menus that the clients of The Late Chef are looking for.
If you engage The Late Chef to cater for an event you can be sure that the ingredients will include much from locally sourced ingredients from local suppliers. This adds a unique element to the food served. This approach results in improved quality and satisfaction for the consumer.
This is why The Late Chef was appointed Head Chef at 1855 Bar and Bistro, to create a menu utilising locally sourced ingredients and produce for the bar.
