Here we are in Washington, VA, Rappahannock County. We love it here. Do come and visit.
This is where we live, have our office, and our Chutney Test Kitchen.
Clare grew up in East Africa and Nevill grew up in England. They met in the Caribbean where they made mango and pineapple chutneys and had two sons, Oliver and Christopher.
When we all moved to Virginia we discovered that the American South had a rich tradition of chutney making. An interesting thing about chutney is how its ingredients and applications reflect the local region. For instance, in India they use tamarind chutneys with curry, the English love Major Grey’s chutney with Ploughman’s lunch, Caribbean cuisine serves mango chutney on fish, New England loves cranberries and maybe Laplanders enjoy cloudberry chutney on reindeer! However, here in Virginia, the traditional chutneys are peach, apple, and green tomatoes often served with ham, cold chicken and roast pork. What is chutney?
Clare came up with the idea of making southern style chutneys and has been resting on her laurels ever since. Oliver likes introducing people to the chutney brick of the Turner food pyramid; you can often find him handing out samples in shops where Virginia Chutney is sold. Younger brother Christopher is a chutney taster/doctor in Boston, and Nevill, a quintessential Englishman, maintains strict standards as head of quality control.
