On this occasion, rather than giving you our favourites, this week Meanderings resolved to tap the unquestionable knowledge of our amazing and influential clientele.

So, here are the S&B community’s most recommended restaurants in the most magical of the Balearic's Ibiza

Neon is the new black. Culottes are the new skinny. 50 is the new 20. Platforms are the new heel. Raw is the new cooked. Activism is the new charity. Copper is the new steel.

Summer Drinks

Issue #13

When the elegant cherry blossom tree outside the shop is in bloom, it's usually a good sign that summer is on its way and that we'll soon be spending more time outside in the garden.
In celebration of this annual event, we have collated our ten favourite summer time drinks for you to enjoy.  

A Lunch With The Gods

Issue #12

Last week we set off on an inspirational buying trip to Morocco and the magnificent snowcapped Atlas Mountains, where we were treated to an incredible lunch in the hidden village of Mazik in Imlil and were amazed by the beautifully primitive architecture, doorways and ornate mosaic tiles that adorned the walls in the Marrakech Medina. 


The Greengrocer

Issue #11

On this day, the 10th April 1633,  a shop in London displayed a bunch of bananas in its window, making it the first time the fruit had been seen in the UK.
To mark this day, we went to our local greengrocers to gander at some of the more bizarre fruit and vegetables now currently available and asked our resident in house chef, Marcelo de Campos to tell us more about the strange and beautiful crops we came home with.   

The Blues

Issue #10

This Easter we're celebrating all things 'Blue' with the arrival of our new Ice Blue Linen collection, made exclusively for Summerill & Bishop by The Stanley Supply Store.  



Issue #09
At Summerill & Bishop we pride ourselves on sourcing beautiful products with a strong sense of provenance.
We have scoured the planet to find fascinating characters who create unique, beautifully functional, hand crafted products for the home. 
To mark our 17th anniversary of working with a very special glassblower, we visited his workshop in a small & wonderfully romantic town on the outskirts of Montpellier to capture the passion and care he pours into every single piece.  
Please meet our dear friend,
'Eric the Viking' 
Food for Thought

[Food for Thought]

Issue #08

21 years ago when the founders of Summerill and Bishop opened their shop, they sent out their first press release. In the interviews they gave, they talked about why they were opening a kitchen shop; how they felt the kitchen was the true heart of the home and the importance of regularly getting the family around the table for a meal.

The ritual of preparing a meal and the actual sitting down for it is something that is at the core of what Summerill and Bishop's founders stood for all those years ago.

Today, it is still a belief we stand behind.



Issue #06

Creating the right atmosphere at meal time matters. When you meet someone for the first time you rarely remember what they said, but you do remember how they made you feel. 
So for all of you that have asked us over the years what song we’re playing and for those who want to create the right atmosphere with a great playlist, this is for you.
