One of the Lake District's best known food producers has collaborated with two Michelin starred chef Tom Kerridge to craft his first ever range of ketchups.

Hawkshead Relish has worked with Tom, who is chef patron at the acclaimed Hand & Flowers, in Marlow, near High Wycombe, on the products.

The range includes Black Garlic Ketchup, a Fruity Brown Sauce, Chipotle Barbecue sauce and a Gherkin Ketchup

Tom said: ''Ketchups and relishes bring an extra dimension to a simple home cooked dish and are a great way to add a twist to the plate.

"I have worked with a producer that understands the importance of provenance and quality and have developed five really unique ketchup flavours that share the same authentic, homemade taste as my restaurant sauces.'

''I was keen to bring some new and different flavours to the table, so I have worked on some exciting recipes that will really add something special to burgers, grills and sandwiches and can be used as a unique base for dips and salad dressings.''

Maria Whitehead, co-owner of Hawkshead Relish, said: “We were delighted to be asked to work with Tom.

"To have the opportunity to work with one of the UK’s top chefs on his first ready-to-eat range has been exciting and insightful.

"Knowing that Tom values artisan British makers is heartening, like him we have a real passion for what we do, for where we live and for the country in which we are fortunate to live.

"This project has given us an opportunity to showcase a little of what we do to a wider audience and we hope that we have the opportunity to collaborate with him again in the near future, especially as he will be closer to hand when he opens his first restaurant in Manchester later this year.”
