Taste Of Spring

Fresh Food at Harrods Fresh Food Buying Manager, André Lewis

Stacked with vibrant goodness, the Fresh Market Hall at Harrods is a great place to be in spring – just ask our Fresh Food Buying Manager André Lewis, the man who runs the Food Halls. From asparagus to the best Devon crab, André tells all in his seasonal update…

"Spring is the time of year when things are coming back to life, following 'the hungry gap' between the end of over-wintered foods (potatoes, carrots) and the arrival of the new season’s offerings. In the Fresh Market Hall, we will be welcoming in asparagus from Wye Valley Produce in Herefordshire and Clive Martin in Devon, farms that have been passed down through the generations. We’ll also have artichokes, squash, Jersey Royal potatoes and rhubarb – with the latter grown outdoors, giving it an extra layer of sharpness.

"Beyond fruit and vegetables, it’s a great time to enjoy lamb, which is particularly young and tender, and brown crab from Devon. Then there’s fresh goat’s cheese, including firm, tangy Tymsboro made by Mary Holbrook in Somerset.

"If a food is not in season here in Britain, we’ll source it from where it grows best. We’ll be looking to France for artichokes and Gariguette strawberries, tiny but bursting with flavour; and even further afield to India, where Alphonso mangoes – smaller and sweeter than the more common varieties – are revered. They are fragrant and decadent on their own, but if you’ve never tried grilled mango with ice cream, I recommend it – the high levels of natural sugar give the fruit an incredible caramelised flavour when it’s cooked."

  • "I love this charred baby gem salad with Faroe Island smoked salmon, prepared in-house by our own chefs."
