I love roaming around the food halls of London's department stores and was pleased to see a new arrival for the Mexican cook in Harrods this week. Rico Mexican Kitchen is the brainwave of an ex-teacher from Derbyshire, Marcela Flores Newburn, who's been cooking up sauces from her home in Derbyshire. Marcela was crowned Food and Drink Champion 2008 at the first Food and Drink iNet Innovation awards.
Other products include tequila, salsa verde and chilli chocolate and there are plans to expand with a range of ready meals, hot chocolate etc. If you happen to be in Derbyshire, you can also buy Marcela's products from the following stores:
Bluebell Dairy Farm, Spondon
The Loaf Diary, Crich
Oliver's Organics, Allestree
Barry Fitch, Little Eaton
Sound Bites, Morledge
Rico Mexican Kitchen Ltd. 112 Marsh Lane, Belper, Derbyshire DE56 1GT
