Personalised Children’s Cookbook by Amelia Thorne

Personalised Children’s Cookbook

Get the kids cooking…
When Christmas rolls round, there’s an inevitable landslide of books to choose from. Buying a book for a child can be tricky at any time of year, which is why this particular one caught our attention. Mission Cookpossible is not only a super-star children’s cookery book that is sure to keep them hooked through a wild story of daring adventure (and of course afternoon tea!), it’s also personalised. Author Amelia Thorne has blended fact and fiction in a novel new way, with a book that not only engages children with cooking but also allows them to do so via familiar characters from their real world. Parents simply visit the website to add their child’s name, the name of a friend, a fictional enemy and then choose from a wide selection of recipes (there are 15 ranging from full afternoon tea, a choice of supper dishes, all the way to a snappy pre-bedtime snack) and lo and behold you have the best recipe book you could get at Christmas.

4 Adult Tickets to the River Cottage Food Festival in 2017

River Cottage Food Festival

Spring sunshine…
We’ve even tackled the prospect of post-Christmas blues. Our hamper includes four adult tickets to the River Cottage Spring Food Fair in May 2017. There’s nothing like a dose of countryside air, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s unswerving passion for top-notch fruit and veg, and plenty of activities to make a weekend great. Pull on your wellies and gather three of your besties to take down to the farm for talks, live music, foraging, local artisans and of course the most delicious fresh food. River Cottage HQ  is set in stunningly beautiful Devonshire countryside and is worth visiting on its own merit.

Ross & Ross Salmon Curing Kit

Ross & Ross Salmon

“Men are quite easy to buy for really. We just want feeding or given something to make.”

Their Salmon Homemade Curing Kit is your chance to try a new skill and make your own gin, smoky and beetroot-cured salmon at home.

 Turkey

Christmas turkeyThe prize Christmas turkey…
A free-range bronze turkey from master butcher Donald Russell will be delivered straight to your home in good time for Christmas Day. That means no last minute sprints to the supermarket, and you can rest assured that this fine turkey is prepped and ready to just pop into the oven, straight from frozen. Donald Russell turkeys are reared in the great outdoors in the Loue region of France and are fed an all-natural diet.

Sweet treats_header

Patisseries

12 desserts of Christmas

The 12 desserts of Christmas…
Here is one pud for each of the days of Christmas, of course. Hand-crafted in Didier’s Patisserie in London, every mouthful is a dream. You’ll find tarts, whipped fancies and sublime French classics. But I won’t give too much away, you can see the decadence for yourself – but can you guess which one is sweet potato and marshmallow? You know you want them.

Lovely Ginger Beer

Ginger Beer

Clue’s in the name…
This sparkling ginger beer is a fiery favourite and a gold star winner at the 2014 Great Taste Awards. The lovely people at Lovely take root ginger, lemon juice, British sugar, stevia and sparkling water to create this full-flavoured drink. It’s handmade by passionate people who spend as much time in the hedgerows and gardens of our beautiful countryside as they do blending and making these scrumptious drinks. Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without a selection of these ginger treats.

Bellfield Brewery Gluten-Free Beer

Gluten-Free Beer

Beer for all…
Bellfield founders are coeliac and so appreciate the importance of delicious, gluten-free ale. They are passionate about what they do, and they’re pretty darn good at it too, with the beer produced by people, with love, rather than by machines. That’s why we’ve included half a dozen bottles of this golden liquid, and you’ll be the toast of the table when your gluten-free friends arrive for Christmas festivities.

Bellfield’s brewing process has been optimised to reduce gluten at every stage so the beers are certified gluten-free, without the need to add anything. It’s natural, great tasting gluten-free beer. Bottoms up!

Vineyards Direct

Vineyards Direct

Tis the season to be merry…
What would Christmas be without wine? You need plenty of good reds for mulling; light, crisp whites for the table and plenty of bubbly to toast the big day. Our hamper includes a varied selection of quality wines courtesy of Vineyards Direct, among which you’ll find a limited edition Rioja.

Greenalls Sloe Gin

Greenalls Sloe Gin

Let it sloe…
Greenall’s Sloe Gin is made with hand-picked sloe berries, slowly macerated in Greenall’s The Original London Dry Gin, for a rich, deep naturally flavoured sloe gin. The eight unique botanicals in Greenall’s, with their rich juniper notes and mature citrus and spice combine with the sloes to create a warming drink that’s perfect for Christmas and winter drinking. This festive gin will be a real hit at Christmas – maybe mix with Prosecco for easy but impressive party drinks.

 

 

Franklins & Sons Tonics and Mixers 

Franklins & Sons

You’re going to need some mixers for that gin…
This smart box contains some pretty special tonics and mixers that are just the perfect partners for gin. The box contains natural Indian tonic water and a light Indian tonic water, which contains half the amount of sugars. There is also a Sicilian lemon tonic, which is going to be just dreamy with that sloe gin, and an original ginger ale to complement a spicier gin. Franklin & Sons have been successfully blending and creating flavours for over 100 years and supply Harrods and Selfridges. There are no preservatives, artificial colours or anything but the best in their products. Chin, chin.

Gusto Organic Cola

Gusto Organic Cola

Fairtrade and natural…
This drink is a new release for 2016. It’s a low-calorie, Fairtrade cola that can be used as a mixer or just as an alternative to the high-sugar brands (after all, there’s already an excess of sugar at this time of year). A lovely blend of organic botanicals, including African Cola Nut, Fairtrade Madagascan vanilla, nutmeg, coriander and neroli, create an authentic cola taste and the sweetness comes from organic stevia leaf extract.

Feeney’s Irish Cream Liqueur

Feeney’s Irish Cream

Just a splash for me…
A Christmas drinks cabinet wouldn’t be complete without an Irish cream liqueur. Feeney’s Irish Cream is a luxurious Irish cream liqueur and contains 100 per cent Irish whiskey masterfully distilled in the heart of Ireland and matured for at least three years. Pour yourself a tipple after a day’s festivities and put your feet up in front of the fire, or try one of these indulgent recipes:
