Heartsease Farm’s raspberry lemonade is made on a family farm in Powys. The sweet snap of raspberry, as well as traces of hibiscus and lemon, make it perfect summer choice for designated drivers. £1.69/330ml, available from WH Smith.
Doddington Cheese Co., based in Northumberland, produces seven artisan cheeses from cows grazed on pastures in the Glendale Valley. Our favourite is Admiral Collingwood, a close-textured cheese washed in Newcastle Brown Ale. Beware: it’s pungent. £22.50/kg
We love the recently launched handpickedfoodstore.com and are particularly fond of its award-winning smoked salmon from MacGilvray’s Scottish smokehouse. The whole side is incredibly soft and easy to cut – great for an alfresco lunch with friends. £26.95 for a whole side.
Lucy’s slim light Asian dressing is packed full of zingy Asian flavours – lime, ginger and chilli. It’s not too sweet and can be used as a marinade for chicken or prawns, as well as a salad dressing. £3.99/250ml, ocado.com
olive favourite Donald Russell takes the hassle out of summer entertaining. Boned and rolled lamb shoulder serves six (£36) and is easy to carve, and with broad beans, petit pois and bacon in béchamel (£3.75) makes the perfect sunny lunch in the garden.
