Taste: Also known as lamb’s lettuce, mache has beautiful velvety green leaves. They have a lightly nutty flavour, perfect for adding to mixed salads. Use a mustardy dressing to bring out its full flavour. The “Coquille” variety has larger, shell shaped leaves and is richer in flavour.
Region: We get our Mache from France, where this variety is in full season at the moment.
Quality: We buy mache twice a week directly from the market in Paris, where our buyer only select what’s looking and tasting best. You can be sure it’s extra fresh and that it hasn’t been sitting on a shelf for too long.
Cost: We always let you know the price per kg so you can easily compare our prices. This superb mache is fresher, better quality and at the same price than its supermarket equivalent.
