Nick and Joe, the two brothers who founded Smith and Brock, have been supplying high quality ingredients to some of the best restaurants, hotels and clubs in the capital for many years. Knock Knock was created this year to give everyone at home access to the best seasonal fruit & veg and other goodies that chefs in restaurants are accustomed to having access to. And it went down a storm!
Ingredients you can’t find in supermarkets
Knock Knock has a very different supplier base to the big boys & girls of the online grocery industry. They focus on sourcing the best produce directly from smaller, artisanal producers and growers, who offer the highest quality, seasonal products. They expertly select products which are grown for flavour, not commercial yield. The volumes of these products are either too small for the mainstream supermarkets, or the varieties aren’t suited for a lengthy spell in a chilled supply chain for days. The team continually searches high and low for the best of the best, and this is how they find exceptional fruit and veg growers, small farms, artisanal bakers and other producers.
Quirky selection for kids and grown-ups!
In their Sunday Roast boxes, you can choose a free-range pork loin with crackling or a whole lamb shoulder as well as a free-range chicken or a fore rib of English beef sourced from Flock & Herd butchers in Peckham. Their seafood box has been curated by one of the best seafood restaurants in London. The Essential box gives you all the staples you need for the week and the Indulgence gives you a little extra with some sausage coming directly from a supplier in Clapham, French butter from Beillevaire, Carnaroli Risotto rice and so on.
Joe’s Seasonal box – for the most adventurous – has cavelo nero from a grower in Lancashire, wild girolle mushrooms foraged by hand in Scotland, borlotti beans and loads of ingredients you’re not used to seeing in your regular supermarket; with this one you will get the kids to try so many new products! All deliveries are made using their own drivers and vans, so the products are delivered with love & care to your door.
