Financial Times Review: Five of the best: bacon curers

The choicest British rashers, from beech-smoked to hand-sliced

Emmett’s of Peasenhall

Truly stunning bacon, sliced as thick as you like it from an old hand-turned bacon slicer. Try their black bacon, cured in spices and molasses – sweet, tangy and lip-smackingly good. Their Christmas bacon features treacle, ginger, black pepper, nutmeg and star anise. There’s a full range of ribs, hams and pancetta, and a well-stocked deli and coffee shop to boot.
