We make tasty food from hemp. It's healthy too. Hemp is one of the most exciting natural ingredients with all kinds of benefits.
Go into any supermarket, good food store or look in the cupboard of a kitchen savvy chef today and you will find food made from hemp seed.
It wasn't always so.
Historically, hemp seed was seen as an aid to health - a neutriceutical. You might find a small bottle of hemp seed oil in a fridge of a health food store, expensive and intended as a medicine. In fact, in much the same way 25 years ago, you would more likely find Olive Oil sold in a Chemist as an aid for earache than in a Grocer's store sold for cooking. So complete is the revolution in food over the last 30 years, that we almost forget that every dish in northern Europe began with a slab of animal fat rather than a splash of oil.
We, Henry Braham and Glynis Murray, began a small revolution in food in 2005 when we launched our first bottles of Good Oil in Harvey Nichols, Selfridges, high end delis and then Waitrose.
For us it started in 1998. Walking around the edge of a field after the first harvest of hemp we had grown for natural fibre, we spotted a plant which was left standing by mistake which had grown and matured its seed. The seed tasted delicious with a flavour similar to hazelnuts. And we became hooked on a journey that is still developing now.
