Thank You

We would like to thank all of our customers – we hope that we have helped to make it a very Merry Christmas. Here is just some of the feedback we have had in the New Year:


Just wanted to say that I bought some of your marvellous  goods just before Christmas and they were amazing!  My friends and I will  make the December trip a regular thing and pop in mid-year too.

We bought tons including stilton, black back bacon,  moscatel naranja (gorgeous!), the date and lime pickle which is already a  favourite, tapenade and pig boards.  We shall also indulge in olives and  ham next time as we had some with lunch and they were the best we’d ever had,  and we’ve had a lot!

Very best wishes for the New Year and well  done!

Smoked cheddar and ham risotto

Gary Fenn came to Peasenhall in August and went home to make full use of Emmett’s ingredients. You can find the recipe for smoked cheddar and ham risotto on his roast potato blog. Read what Gary has to say about Emmett’s.

“It’s a beautiful shop, bowling you over straight away with a tasting table where you can sample some of their bestsellers. Then you can peruse their pickled veg, the usual suspects of olives, chillis and artichokes. Then on to the confectioneries, where you can browse the chocolate-covered ginger, huge shards of chocolate studded with hazelnuts and many more. Then there’s the glory: the cold meats counter. They smoke and cure their own meats onsite and take an awful lot of pride in their work. Something I went back for a couple of times was their Suffolk Black ham, all treacley and rich with a powerful cure flavour. Absolutely divine and worth a detour for. To take home with me I grabbed a couple of things: smoked Montgomery cheddar and ham offcuts. Contrary to the picture you get a great chunk of leftover bacon for just £1. So good.”

Why don’t you stop and see us next time you are in Suffolk – or even make a special trip! And remember, you can find our own recipes here.

Mark Thomas on BBC Food Programnme

Mark was interviewed by Tim Hayward on the BBC Food Programme on Sunday 13th March.

You can hear what he has to say about Emmett’s ham and bacon by listening to the programme on the BBC i-Player. It will only be there for the next six days, so don’t miss it!

New Hams in 2011

Mark has been doing some travelling since Christmas, searching for new ways of preparing hams for the Spring and Summer. Watch out for a selection of new Emmett’s hams, prepared with rosemary, pepper, dill and other herbs – perfect for picnics and family parties in the garden. And of course you can always order our traditional black and mild cured hams.

Hammy New Year!

Emmett’s wishes you all a Happy New Year!

We trust you enjoyed our ham, bacon and other delicious foods during the Christmas Season, and hope you will continue to treasure these tastes throughout 2011. If you got an Emmett’s bacon or ham starter pack or stocking as a gift, you probably want to get some more ham and bacon to smooth away the January blues. It’s easy to order on our website. Just click here and start shopping.

If you have any good stories about how your family enjoyed Christmas with an Emmett’s Ham, or if you devised any new recipes using our products over the holiday, please let us know and we’ll include them on this blog.
