Aunt Bonzo made the most delicious bottled dishes using vegetables from her allotment garden. She has inspired us to produce the wholesome Bonzo Classic and Bonzo Vegan dishes.
Aunt Bonzo was a colourful lady with a prolific allotment garden. Here, she grew vegetables and we used to enjoy the dishes she made. She would often give us bottled dishes to take home – in that way, we always had healthy and tasty food available. Bonzo’s tasty casseroles are inspired by proud cooking traditions – and many of them are made from old recipes that have been passed on through the family.
Bonzo casseroles are made using the bottling method. We cook the dishes in open saucepans, just like at home, using the best ingredients available from our European suppliers. The food is then put into airtight jars and sterilised using steam – a classic and simple method that totally avoids the use of preservatives.
Bottling is an old and tested method used for generations. The technique means that the dishes will keep for a long time, even years, without the use of preservatives.
The jars with bottled food take us back to a time when keeping qualities, high quality, traditional and natural flavours as well as quality ingredients played a central part. Each Bonzo jar is a jar filled with love.

The first vintage of our excellent sparkling wines from the village of Norsminde, south of Aarhus, was harvested in 2012. We produce the wines on a main stock of Solaris and Frühburgunder grapes and we have now reached a level where the wines are comparable with the best sparkling wines from the Champagne district.
The Bonzo Wineyard was conceived when we discovered that some of our valued suppliers also grew and produced wines – excellent country wines – perfectly complementing the Bonzo casseroles and grown on the same types of soil.
So, we buy wines directly from the wine grower to be enjoyed by our Bonzo customers – directly from soil to table – so that we can offer fabulous country wines at reasonable prices. We have composed a selection ensuring that there will always be a grape variety to complement your preferred Bonzo dish – or enjoyed in pleasant company as it is. Enjoy!
