Lovejoys wholesale celebrates 20 year anniversary
The Pig is delighted to send hearty congratulations to local food hero Neil Mortimer and his team at the lovely Lovejoys Wholesale, who are celebrating two decades of sourcing and supplying the lushest local produce to the very best restaurants in the region this weekend. In honour of this auspicious occasion, Neil and his wife Tina are hosting a very special dinner for their team and their suppliers for their contribution to making Lovejoys Wholesale the success (and local institution!) that it is today. They’ve also launched a brand new website (check it out here, the “Why Choose Us” video is very special indeed!), and announced the results of a fabulous competition, for which The Pig was honoured to be the judge of…
Advertised widely in house and to all their clients, Neil and Tina asked for images of the best-looking dish created with Lovejoys produce. Making a final selection was tough as some amazing images flooded in, but we’re proud to announce that the overall winner is Richard Synan, Head Chef of the lovely Weaving Shed in Bradford on Avon, for the amazing dish pictured here: pithivier of butternut squash, red onion, goats’ cheese and pine nuts, with roast Bromham beetroot, heritage carrots, honey glazed parsnips and truffle… 90% of which fully utilises Lovejoys produce to its maximum advantage! Good work, Richard – and enjoy your prize of a gorgeous, gleaming new bike from Halfords.
Cheers, Lovejoys! Bath menus just wouldn’t be the same without you.
