Dickinson & Morris claims that consumer interest in the provenance of food has helped boost the speciality sector. Each of its pies are baked without a supporting hoop or tin to give it a distinctive shape, while its sausages are made with premium British pork and free range eggs. Its latest line is a Red Leicester and chive sausage. The importance of authenticity is underscored by a new symbol for extra virgin olive oil from Tuscany which has been launched by the Tuscan Olive Oil Consortium. It claims the Il Consorzio dell'Olio Toscano mark will act as a guarantee to consumers that they are buying an authentic regional product. A new version of the hot toddy has been created by Scottish company Gillies Fine Foods. Glenferlie is a drink of blended honey, whisky and lemon which, when added to hot water, becomes a winter warmer. Traditional mustard, preserves and relish maker Tracklements has spiced up its range with the addition of Salsa Balsamica and Chilli jam. Both will be on show at the Speciality & Fine Food Fairs. Also hitting the flavour trail is the English Provender Company which has added three sauces to its range. Smokey salsa is made with smoked paprika, Mesquite smoked peppers, herbs and spices; tartare sauce is made with green olives; and seafood sauce is made with Dijon mustard, tomato purée, balsamic vinegar and garden dill. More and more products are jumping on the organics bandwagon, and organic is a key element of Martlet Natural Foods' extensive speciality range which includes chutneys, conserves, honeys, sauces and vinegars. All its products carry Soil Association endorsement. Three authentic organic rice varieties have been launched by Porter Foods. Vertmont Canadian Lake wild rice, North American brown and wild rice blend, and basmati rice and lentil blend are certified organic by four organisations and they are also certified kosher. The company also supplies Canada Gold 100% pure maple syrup bearing the MapleMark seal of approval. The product also comes in blueberry and cranberry flavours. Capitalising on the cranberry trend, Christmas pudding expert Cole's Traditional Foods has created a premium cranberry and orange Christmas pudding for the festive season. Its fruity sauce comprises 23.2% whole cranberries which run down the sides of the pudding when turned out of its bowl. Other ingredients include vine fruits, walnuts, cherries and ground almonds, and it is laced with orange liqueur (3.28%), cider and a dash of orange juice. Belazu has been working with a band of Mediterranean artisan producers to source a range of regional extra virgin olive oils, infused oils, nut oils, balsamic vinegar and pastes. It has launched Argan oil, an extract from the kernels inside the nut of the Argan tree's olive like fruit, sourced from Morocco and retailing at £6.99 for 250ml. It has also launched a hot, aromatic chilli paste called Rose Harissa made from more than 40 spices which is used in north African dishes. Both products are available from Sainsbury's Special Selection. {{FOCUS SPECIALS }}
