There is nothing quite like shallots for adding a uniquely
delicate, sweet, piquant flavour. With their superior taste,
shallots transform everyday meals into something extra special.
Shallots form a vital part of the chef's mise en place and
are at the heart of many classic dishes. Professional chefs
and passionate home cooks know that shallots are a crucial
ingredient in stews and casseroles but they are also fantastic
in stir fries, breads, sauces, tarts, soups, salads and curries.
Our traditional shallot growing areas cover 150 hectares
(370 acres) of light, sandy soils in eastern England: principally,
Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire and Bedfordshire. The shallot
growing year starts at the end of February in the UK, as soon
as the soil starts to warm up and the shallots are harvested
throughout July and August.
Because shallots are a specialist crop, they require a great
deal of care from sowing the seeds or plants to harvesting
the bulbs and storing them.
