Savoy cabbage Grown by Lloyd Stone at Ashburton, Devon



Never mind the latest superfood, we believe in the redemptive power of the cabbage. Savoy is one of our favourites – with robust dark green leaves and a strong flavour. Ideal for inclusion in slow-cooking soups and stews, or simply boiled and buttered.

How to prepare

Cabbage is a versatile veg: shred into stir-fries, curries, soups and stews. Robust and forthright, Savoy is a good candidate for a gratin. Briefly boil the shredded leaves. Sweat an onion, add garlic and chilli, then the cabbage and a very generous splosh of cream. Season, spoon into a gratin dish, sprinkle with breadcrumbs and Parmesan and bake for 20 mins until golden.


Keep in the fridge or a cool veg rack. It will last up to a fortnight.
