After being so impressed with the food at Rusty Pig, chef Rob Tanner asked if they were looking for a chef – and found himself with a new job. Rob joins head chef Mark Russell at the ethicallyminded Ottery St Mary restaurant after work experience in various high profile establishments including Claridge’s, Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’saisons and Le Gavroche. Also joining the team is events manager Beatrice Hunt, who’ll work on weddings, festivals, and special events. Following investment from private equity firm Inverleith LLP, North Devon company Braham and Murray has launched its first chilled hemp milk.
Made from organic hemp seeds, it’s great tasting, doesn’t split in hot drinks, is packed with lots of good vitamins and provides 50% of nutritionists’ recommended daily intake of omega-3.
It’s gone on sale at select Waitrose and Asda stores in sweetened and unsweetened versions.
