Get Wurst: Meat or veggie options
Guest lunch – Get Wurst Paul & Lindsay say “We’re based in SE19 and bring you the best big beasty brats this side of Berlin. Our sausages are imported from the Münsterland region of Germany and are served with beer fried onions and sauerkraut. Served in a brioche rollor in a tray with our homemade currywurst sauce. We also do a Veggie Wurst, after years of perfection by our sausage man in Germany, he has nailed it and we are pleased to offer a vegetarian option that is super tasty!”

Paramour Pie Club: Roast Pork Dinner Pie
Pies – Paramour Pie Club Cherry says “We’ll have Chilli Pork Pies Dairy Free Our raised crust uses our homemade lard and Pure Kent’s sieved white flour to give it a really nutty bite. This week they are filled with tender pulled pork and flavoured with our own chilli jam; Mr McGregor’s Pies Our most popular item, these rabbit pies are made using locally sourced rabbit (from Stour Valley Game), slow-cooked on the bone in local cider, with thyme and leeks and a light mustard cream. The pies are made with our beautiful buttery shortcrust pastry, in an unusual mini loaf shape; Oxtail Tamale Pie [Gluten Free, Dairy Free]
A rich, tender, meaty oxtail stew with mild spices and infused with Debonair’s Smoko Tea for a deep smoky flavour, encased in sweet and soft cornbread and topped with spicy tomato salsa.
Courgette, Goats Cheese and Kentish Honey Pies [Vegetarian] Our best sellers of last summer – so we were thrilled to see that courgettes are finally in season again! So here they are – buttery flaky pastry, encasing delicious fresh courgette and creamy goats cheese, with fresh seasonal herbs. Topped with a crisp courgette flower and drizzled with local honey; Asparagus and Mint tartlets [Vegan] In these delicate vegan tartlets we have kept things simple – a shortcrust pastry with poppy seeds and a creamy asparagus and mint filling, topped with asparagus tips; Ham Sandwich Deal
The clue is in the name! Layers of smoked ham, ashmore cheese and piccalilli sauce in a pastry casing shaped like a classic kentish huff kin; Roast Pork Dinner Pie This debuted at Sandwich Food Fayre and was such a hit, we’ve been asked for it at the Pop-up Pie Hub several times since. Slow roast pork shoulder with onion gravy and topped with roast potatoes. Comforting, indulgent and very very tasty!”

We’ll have a huge range of all-time favourites next to new additions, including Top Banana cake with salted dulce de leche and banana milkshake buttercream; double carrot cake; strawberry and white chocolate gateau with lashings of limoncello; chocolate Guinness cake (London’s best according to About Time Magazine); and a baked berry cheesecake studded with blueberries and raspberries.
There’ll also be rhubarb crumble cake (starring homegrown rhubarb); scrumptious new apricot and pine nut bakewells; peanut butter bars; a basket full of milk chocolate, orange and cardamom cookies; our classic 70% dark chocolate brownies with pecans and white chocolate chunks; and loads of sticky buns. Finally, this weekend’s bomboloni will be filled with our special recipe chocolate and hazelnut gianduja (like Nutella but better), and we’ll have jars of our extra dark, coarse-cut marmalade by the score. See you soon!”
Wine – Wine Scouts Pedro says “I’ll open an Italian red, from Tuscany: The Rosso di Caparsa is based on an ancient Chianti recipe of Sangiovese and two white varieties, Trebbiano and Malvasia. Nice light intensity fruity nose with also a woody component too. Red cherry, raspberry, red currant, and a hint of cloves, vanilla and candied cherries. Old World in style, with a good balance of fruit and acidity. Not a bad wine to enjoy with a pasta with a light bright tomato sauce.”
Preserves – Creative All Sorts Christine says “I have sinful Gin and Lime Marmalade, Perfect Piccalilli, Radishes pickled in cider vinegar and many other treats. Also on sale will be ceramic fridge magnets, brooches and little plant pots. After this week I won’t be back until the end of July, so roll up, roll up!”
