Glaswegian Kember & Jones Fine Food Emporium is a brilliant one-stop Slow Life shop: it’s a deli – café – kitchenware and cookbook store.
Owners Claire Jones and Phil Kember not only source and stock the highest quality foods – simplicity and the quality of ingredients is everything – and most interesting kitchenware and cookbooks, their little cafe also serves delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners all inspired by the artisan products they sell. So if you are inspired by the food you’ve just had, you can stock up on fresh ingredients and new recipe ideas on site, head home and start experimenting – brilliant!
For the shop, local suppliers all over Britain and the Continent provide a range of authentic pastas and sauces, chutneys and jams, rococo and prestat chocolates, muselis, organic bread and much more.
The dishes served at the cafe are all inspired by the time Claire and Phil spent in Europe and North Africa as well as the fresh produce in store. With a choice of daily seasonal specials including soups, salads, bruschettas and savoury tarts, breakfast favourites such as home-made granola or ricotta pancakes, afternoon tea scons – from cheddar to blueberry or cranberry – and K&J favourites Cannellini Bean Soup and pistachio, cardamom and orange tart, you will be spoilt for choice.
