Porridge & CousCous
BUT NOT AS YOU KNOW IT
Born in Stroud, in the heart of the Cotswolds, Wolfys is the brainchild of Kitchen Garden Foods, traditional preserve makers.
Although Kitchen Garden was founded in 1989, Wolfys launched in the summer of 2013 after we were challenged to find a hot, filling and tasty snack for a festival caterer. Word soon spread and Wolfys very quickly became a local success story.
Wolfys is unique. Each pot of Wolfys has another little pot hidden under the lid! In our Porridge you'll find a pot of jam, marmalade or honey and in the Couscous you'll find a little pot of chutney or relish. Everything is made by hand, by us, in Stroud.
Wolfys is great for busy bees - the perfect food if you're short for time or about to defeat Everest.
Simply add hot water, leave for four minutes and voila! Perfection in a pot.
Everything is vegetarian with the couscous being suitable for vegans and now a new vegan porridge range!
Traditional prison food and deriving from an alteration of the word ‘Pottage’ (meaning ‘Soup’ or ‘Stew’), porridge is older than your grandma…
The oaty stuff dates back to the 16th century and has been a staple diet for many millions of people ever since. Often plain, gloopy and on a par with gruel, porridge hasn’t always been the most exciting.
Well that’s now changed!
From the Arabic word kaskasa, Couscous is iconic in North Africa. This stuff is older than your pet elephant with some saying that it originated between the end of the Zirid dynasty and the rise of the Almohadian dynasty (that's the eleventh to the thirteenth century if you're wondering).
More versatile than a Swiss army knife, we've grabbed this ancient delicacy by the danglies and dragged it into the 21st Century.
