It's that time of year again and, oh how quickly it creeps up on us, so with this in mind, we have stocked up on our festive favourites to help you get into the Christmas Spirit!
With every item carefully selected taking in the nostalgia, smells and flavours, encapsulating our childhood memories of Christmases past we are happy to announce that our Festive Foodhall is now open here in Nailsworth and all available online.
So, grab a basket and come take a tour with us:
Preserves, chutneys and festive brandy and rum butters all come into their own at Christmas time! Indulgent alcoholic butters added to puddings or on warm mince pies, a variety of chutneys on the side of a plate of cheese with a glass of port. Marmalade's and fruit preserves on hot buttered toast on Christmas morning and all ideal gifts to give to family and friends.
We’ve something for all ages in our confectionery and chocolate department. Jars of traditional sweets, or bags of childhood favourite sweets like dolly mixtures, jelly babies and banana foams to name but a few, or for the children individually wrapped chocolate Santa's or for something a little special Belgian chocolate assortments, in festive wrapping & tins. Wooden crated liqueur chocolates, fun chocolate cigars or chocolate rugby balls for the gentlemen and festive wrapped chocolates for the ladies.
Please take a wander round our brand new tea collection. We sell a variety of types of teas - traditional English Breakfast, classic Earl Grey and English Afternoon tea, a lighter tea than a breakfast blend. A great gift for a relative, a neighbour or a work colleague or a handy addition to your own store cupboard. All teas are presented in beautifully designed tea caddies and tin collections include Alice In Wonderland tea party, Beatrix Potter designs and a vintage Victorian collection all in a range of sizes including super large caddies with 240 tea bags which also makes perfect storage, keeping teabags fresh already for your daily cup of Rosie Lee.
For an extra special treat look no further than our collection of Panettones which come in various shapes and sizes, in nostalgically decorated packing and boxes. Light, sweet and soft Italian cakes wrapped in brown & gold wax paper. ‘Panetto’ means small loaf and is delicious served in wedges, sometimes toasted or just a slice with a coffee or, as a special Christmas treat with a glass of dessert wine or Marsala. Use leftovers to make delicious bread and butter pudding or maybe Panettone ice cream, making that Christmas taste linger long into January.
All ideal for entertaining at home, or as gifts for all ages of your family, they also makes great Secret Santa gifts for work colleagues or friends.
"The flickering of the blaze showed preparations for a cosy dinner, with hot plates baking through and through before the fire, and deep red curtains, ready to be drawn to shut out cold and darkness." Charles Dickens from A Christmas Carol
