Freestanding Larders

Food storage is one of the most important functions in your kitchen. Food needs to be properly stored in a cool dry place.

Our Handmade Solid Wood Larders will store your food both in safety and style. Painted in your choice of Farrow and Ball paints your Larder will look great and add a stylish touch to your new kitchen. The wide doors on our larders will enable you to see what you have foodwise and to make unpacking the shopping a much easier task.

We can also include the nice traditional feature of a marble shelf to keep your butter & cheese cool and crackers fresh in the warm summer months.

Once we believed in the magical food-preserving properties of the fridge and crammed it to the gunnels with produce, we’re currently experiencing something of a backlash.

Turns out that many foodstuffs actually taste better and last longer when they’re not buried in the chilly confines of a fridge freezer.

Cheese should be served at room temperature and keeps best between 8-10°C. Wrap it in waxed paper and keep it in the larder for maximum flavour.

According to many foodies, those egg trays in the door of your fridge are the worst place to store eggs, as the movement of the door degrades the quality of the whites. Any good cook will tell you that eggs are better used at room temperature. Eggshells are porous, so eggs take on the flavour of foods stored in close proximity – keep them in their box to minimise the risk.

Fruit from warm climates doesn’t fare well in the fridge – bananas go black, avocados go dark brown but stop ripening, strawberries and tomatoes lose some of their flavours, and yellow melons can develop black spots. In fact, most fruit can be kept in a bowl in the kitchen perfectly well, as long as you keep bananas separately.

Vegetables such as onions, courgettes, peppers, mushrooms and root veg, including potatoes, carrots and parsnips, all benefit from being kept in a cool, dark place – just not the fridge. Salad leaves are among the few things that do actually stay crisper if they’re kept in the fridge

Note the clever use of a marble shelf to keep things cool and fresh during the warmer summer months
