Food provenance
The most recent location to be added to Natural Kitchen’s portfolio is at the new 24-storey Angel Court development in London. Taking a 6000 square feet site in the Copthall Avenue unit, Natural Kitchen’s new site features a downstairs gin bar with 32 gins complete with wooden floors, chairs and tables that are mixed with ceilings hanging with green foliage, soft blue walls and dim lighting. Upstairs, meanwhile offers a similar décor but in a more open space that takes advantage of five metre high ceilings and expansive natural light with double height glass all around.

Passionate about good food, from fresh fruit and vegetables, to fish or meat, Natural Kitchen uses a handful of trusted suppliers that deliver the best possible taste and quality. With the NK 128 cprovenance of its food paramount, they take the time to ensure ingredients are from sustainable and ethical sources, which in turn results in Natural Kitchen’s menus bursting with the freshest, tastiest and environmentally friendly ingredients. To maintain this strong reputation for using traceable food of the highest quality, Natural Kitchen works only with suppliers who share its philosophy. Suppliers include Debono, Celtic Bakers, Real Good Ketchup, Miko, Skandel Boathouse, Smith & Brock and Alliance Foods. Inc and Hush Hush Chefs.

Furthermore Marylebone High Street features a butchers shop, which was established in 2008 by Andy Jordan a long time friend of Justin Green the MD of Natural Kitchen.

Offering expert advice on both the selection and cooking of the company’s quality meats, the butchers sells a wide range of high quality free range and organic meats. Because these have been sourced directly from small traditional farms, the butcher has full provenance and traceability.
