Newcastle food store aims to be Britain’s best

mmm glug logosA Newcastle food and drink store wants local shoppers who are shunning the supermarkets to help it carry off a top UK food award for independent retailers.

Grainger Market-based mmm… and glug… is in the running for the 2015 Farm Shop & Deli Awards and hopes that the award can come to the north east for the first time.

The store, a major supporter of small food producers both in and out of the region, has been on a mission to get more people cooking and eating since it opened six years ago.

The Farm Shop & Deli Awards recognise the very best standards in the UK’s independent, speciality retail market.

And, despite being up against delis and shops in the UK that have been established far longer, owner Simone Clarkin, 51, is determined to show that the region can compete with the whole of the country.

She said: “When we first opened mmm… and then glug… we wanted to get more local people talking about and more importantly, eating great food and drink – and not just relying on the choices supermarkets offer.

“By working with award-winning local producers such as Zen Bakers, Davenports Chocolates, Wylam Brewery, Mr Vikkis, Gilchesters and Anarchy Brewery we have helped raise the profile of the fantastic food and drink being produced in the region.

“But we also look beyond the region by aiming to supply top cooking ingredients that many of our customers and chefs say they can’t get anywhere but London or even abroad.

“We are hoping north east twitterers, food lovers, cooks and chefs can vote and see the accolade coming to the region on behalf of our great suppliers and the food-loving north east as a whole.”

Food lovers can vote for mmm… online at

The Awards developed from Founding Partner Olives Et Al’s Deli of the Year, saw nearly 300 entries in 2014, doubling the amount from previous year.

The overall winner will be announced at Farm Shop & Deli Show on 20 April 2015 at Birmingham’s NEC.

mmm… and the recently opened glug… which stocks hundreds of craft beers, wine and ciders is based at 10-13 Grainger Arcade in the Grainger Market.

The store can be followed online at where over 16,000 followers regularly swap foodie hints, tips, recipes and recommendations.

Newcastle trader wants views on market’s future

A local business has taken to social media to get views on the opening hours of Newcastle’s Grainger Market after being inundated with customers wanting to shop more often.

mmm… and glug… who are based in the 180-year-old venue, has set up an online survey to get the views of existing and potential market shoppers, ahead of a poll of traders by Newcastle City Council.

The food and drink store, which has over 17,000 followers on Twitter and Facebook, wants Newcastle City Council and other traders to look at consistent opening hours, as well as Bank Holiday and Sunday openings.

The business set up the survey after being regularly asked as to why the market closes at 5.30pm most days and is closed every Sunday and public holidays.

Simone Clarkin, 51, who set up mmm… six years ago, says the market needs to change to reflect the views of today’s shoppers and that changes could create new jobs and a boost to the local economy.

She said: “Barely a day goes by when customers who shop in the whole market and other traders bemoan the early closing hours or the lack of Sunday and holiday shopping.

“We appreciate that the market has a tradition dating back to 1835, but times change, as do people’s working and home lives.

“Even in the short time that we have been in the Grainger Market it is amazing to see the number of new and exciting businesses opening up.

“This has ranged from Italian pizza makers and hand made jewelry shops to pet boutiques and a soon to be opened French Crêperie.

“Established traders have also taken up the mantle to make it Newcastle’s most enjoyable independent shopping venue, generating millions of pounds for the local economy each year.

“We want to get existing and potential shoppers’ views so we can share them with Newcastle City Council and other traders to help shape the long-term future of the market.”

English wines at glug…

We love British food and drink at glug… and we are delighted to be now stocking the first of many to come wines from vineyards in the south of England.

What do we stock?

First is the Cornwall Brut sparkling white wine from Camel Valley vineyard, one of the finest grown in England.

English wineCamel Valley Brut (12.5% abv) – English sparkling wine with a fresh, bright character and smooth fruit flavours with floral notes. 12.5% alcohol.

Then from Kenton Vineyard in Devon we have the highly aromatic Bacchus and the intensely fruity Rose.

Kenton Vineyard Bacchus (11.5% abv) – a single varietal wine made from Bacchus grapes grown at the Vineyard.

It is a highly aromatic, dry wine with crisp fruit flavours and a long finish.

Kenton Vineyard Rose (11.5% abc) – a slightly darker, full-flavoured rose, with intense red fruit nose also coming through on the palate.

So is English wine any good?

Wine making was introduced to England by the Romans, and has continued with varying levels of success through the centuries.

More recently the warmer British summers have seen a growth in an industry which has traditionally struggled with an unsuitably cold climate.

Chalky, limestone soils in parts of southern England are extremely similar to those found just across the Channel in Champagne and growers have found which grape varieties do well.

Not surprisingly these include the Champagne grapes of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier for the sparklings; Bacchus, Siegerrebe and Seyval Blanc for whites and Rondo, Regent, Dornfelder and Pinot Noir for reds.

Sparkling wines have made huge strides in the last decade and the best of these can easily stand up to French competition.

White wines have developed a delightful, delicate, elderflower-scented style, and beautiful reds ranging from light and pink through to gutsy and dark are beginning to emerge.

We hope you enjoy discovering the exciting world of English wine with us.

Trotter’s Independent Condiments at mmm…

What we love most at mmm… about Fife-based Trotter’s Independent Condiments is how they specialise in sourcing, developing and producing products that are unusual or unobtainable in the British market.

Byam Trotter, the owner of Trotters intends to keep increasing the range as they discover and develop new products.

Their most recent additions, which we stock at mmm…, are Mojito Marmalade and A bloody Shame (see below).

What we sell at mmm…

A bloody shame at mmmA Bloody Shame – Byam Trotter loves bloody Mary cocktails and he is a big fan of Bloody mary Chutney, but he had never found one where you can taste the vodka.

His friend Rosanna suggested we just take the Vodka out and call it ‘A Bloody Shame’. So that’s what he did.

Great as a pizza topping, with cold meats and baked potatoes, sandwiches, a pasta sauce or as salsa for crisps and tortillas.

Trotters pepper jelly and dipping sauceSweet pepper dipping sauce – is made using the same Peppers (scotch bonnet and sweet) as Trotter’s Hot Pepper Jelly.

The dip, unlike the jelly, is runny with bits of pepper in it for a different texture and consistency and can be used for different things.

Great with crisps, tempura prawns, salad dressings, stir drys, mayonnaise (as a dip), pate, egg mayo sandwiches and omelettes.

Uncle Allan’s Chutney – is a raw fruit chutney made from apples, onions, dates and sultanas.

Instead of cooking, the chutney it sits in a vat and socks in Malt vinegar for a few days before going into the jars where it sits for at least a month to mature before selling.

It also benefits form a subtle kick from a hint of Cayenne Pepper. Great with mature cheeses, sandwiches, cold meats, leftover lunches and picnics.

Mojito jelly – is literally a Mojito turned into jelly. It is non-alcoholic, whether that is a good thing or not we will leave to your own judgement but you can still taste the rum and it is delicious.

Great with oily fish such as mackerel and salmon, oysters, lamb (as a mint sauce), ice cream and arm desserts such as crumbles (it will melt into a nice sauce).

Trotters mostardo at mmmMostarda – is an Italian recipe which is a fruit based condiment that gains quite a kick from a healthy jolt of powdered mustard and mustard seeds.

It is one of the standard condiments served with cold meats in Northern Italy. The condiment also goes extremely well with any cheese but is especially good with hard cheese.

Great with making any sandwich into a luxury lunch, ploughman’s, cold meats and mixed leaves, bacon roll, cold meats, baked potatoes, coleslaw, cheese, beans (yes, really), shepherds pie, curries, stews, casseroles and porridge!

Suzanne’s marmalade – a seville orange marmalade with the addition of lap sang Souchong tea to give it a smokey aroma.

The name comes from the Leonard Cohen song of the same name ‘Suzanne’ where one of the lyrics is “She brings you tea and oranges that come all the way from china.”
