LittlePod ingredients Charlies Deli

We never get bored or complacent about seeing our natural ingredients on the shelves in shops, whether it’s a tiny deli or big department store, it still makes us smile. So we’ve decided to celebrate all the LittlePod retailers, big and small, up and down the country (and maybe even further afield). So, starting just down the road in our neighbouring county of Cornwall, here’s our first of many featured retailers…its Rebecca and the team at Charlies Café and Deli in Tintagel. Here's what they have to say...

Tell us a bit about your store...

"We are a small family business located in the beautiful village of Tintagel and have been trading for nearly 4 years.  We stock mainly Cornish produce, although do we make exceptions for exceptional things from further afield (such as LittlePod!).  Our focus on food is fresh, local and seasonal produce served in a simple manner allowing the ingredients to speak for themselves.  We particularly favour smaller independent producers and are always seeking out artisans in our local area for new stock."

Describe your store using only three words…

"Seasonal, Local, Artisan"

How long have you been stocking LittlePod for?

"Since we opened 4 years ago"

If your store had a motto, what would it be?

"The Freshest Food, the Warmest Welcome"

Which three food products from your store could you not be without?

"Charlie’s Homemade Chili Jam, Honey from the Tintagel Honey Shop, LittlePod Vanilla Paste"

What’s your favourite LittlePod product and what recipe would you use it in?

"We LOVE all the LittlePod products but our favourite is the vanilla paste which we use in lots of recipes but is particularly wonderful in our Apple and Vanilla Panetonne Pudding"

Anything else you’d like to share with us?

"We are also organisers for the North Cornwall Clandestine Cake Club and mention LittlePod a lot in this."
