how to order

"The time has come", the two of us said, "to speak of winding down!" With that in mind we have decided to draw to a close our 15 year 'stratta' adventure. We have shared this adventure with so many wonderful customers throughout the years, and it has been a difficult decision to call a halt. Our website will become solely a repository of ideas and recipes with the blog continuing for the present. With our best wishes, Mary and John. xx

who we are

Mary and I produced our range of delights from our home from 2004 until Christmas 2019. What had been a 25 year interest in the creation of delicious produce for family and friends using fruits, flowers and herbs became all-absorbing. Together, we represented a formidable force with creativity and exuberance, boundless enthusiasm, a real love of good food, a spirit of adventure and perhaps more than a hint of eccentricity. What a recipe!!

Our blog, accessible from the left hand list, holds many ideas for using our products as does our recipe ideas page. We also love to hear your favourite recipes and dishes featuring stratta oils and vinegars. With your permission we will add them in to our website for others to enjoy too! The latest revelation, from Ferga, is that our strawberry and pink peppercorn vinegar is 'Yum!' on rich vanilla ice cream.
