Rhian Short


Usk River, run by Rhian Short, whose interest in artisan food with a strong local provenance has long been a passion. By applying a creative and original approach to a very traditional craft, a range of delicious chutneys and savoury preserves has been developed. With a focus on using locally sourced seasonal ingredients, the recipes are made in small batches in the traditional way.

The core range comprises a variety of chutneys, relishes, pickles and savoury jams. Where possible ingredients are sourced from the Usk Valley and surrounding areas.

All recipes made with natural ingredients with no ‘bulking’ ingredients or artificial additives. Ingredients not available locally are sourced with care for their quality and provenance, and ethical food issues miles are taken into consideration when choosing suppliers. Quality wine vinegars, sugars and whole spices are used throughout, and all recipes are prepared by hand in a small commercial kitchen in Usk.
With the absence of any wheat, dairy or animal products, Usk River preserves are veggie-friendly and gluten-free. Visit the website for full details.
