Unusually Country Kitchen (aka CK), is owned and managed by a collective - a group of local residents from Haslingfield and the surrounding area, who are all passionate about running this wonderful village shop. Being a real part of the area gives all the owners a massive personal investment in everything they do and makes CK feel more like a traditional 'heart of the community' shop. A visit to CK offers something more than just the usual deli-style shopping experience.
The team searches out top-quality produce from a fine range of local suppliers - from fresh fruit, meat and vegetables to artisan bread, cheese and charcuterie. Fresh fish is also available once a week to order. Honey, jams and chutneys, cakes and other treats such as wine and beers are sold, plus a great selection of cards and gifts sourced from local artists and artisans where possible.
On offer too is a good choice of sugar-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, and other dietary and lifestyle products.
What really makes CK a big hit both with locals and visitors are the gorgeous homemade cooked meals. Meat and vegetarian tray bakes such as cottage pie, chilli, lasagne, macaroni cheese are made daily to take out. For lunch, fresh filled baguettes, jacket potatoes, panini, home-made sausage rolls, soup, quiche and salads are on offer alongside tea/coffee-to-go. Corporate lunches are also provided to local businesses.
CK will make up gift hampers for a special occasion - just ask one of the friendly team. They are also always willing to suggest or offer advice on recipes, ideas and ingredients for customers to try out at home.
