Woking Farmers' Market

A big thank you to all those who stopped by to see us at Woking Farmers' Market today. As our first ever Farmers Market it was great to have such warm welcome even on a wet and windy bank holiday. Our spicy Guacamole seemed to be the salsa of choice for the Woking public, so much so that we ran out of it completely. We hope to return to the Woking market next month, and we look forward to adding more Farmers' Markets to our Calendar. More updates on this soon.

Official guacabrand launch

We are very excited, after a lot of work and hours spent we are one step closer to launching our own brand of homemade, all natural Guacamole! The recipe has been perfected, most importantly the spiciness -now everyone loves it-.Thanks to our artistic friend Nat and graphic designer Jon, the guacalabel is looking amazing and has now been printed out:

Make sure you look for it next time you go to do your weekly shopping in your local supermarket...well, ok we are not quite there yet but hopefully you will be able to buy it soon if you live near us in Surrey.
More on this story to come...

Supermarket Guacamole Taste Test

Guacamole. Green, spicy and delicious. Or a least it should be. In Mexico this super-salsa is used not just as a dip for tortilla chips, but in Quesadillas, tasty Floatas (Tacos Dorados - deep fried rolled tortillas filled with shredded beef or chicken, potato and cheese), Alambres (aka Fajitas - chicken with ham or beef with bacon in cheese with onions and peppers wrapped in a soft flour tortilla) and as an accompaniment to any kind of taco.
