A Fancy Trimmings Hamper from Harvey Nichols

How are you getting on with your Christmas shopping? I think I’m just about there with mine – I’m fortunate to have fellow food-loving friends and family and so it’s always a pleasure thinking of things to buy them. Something that always goes down well is a good food hamper! In the run up to Christmas I love to try out a new hamper, and this year it was my first experience testing out the fabulous ‘Fancy Trimmings’ hamper from Harvey Nichols.

They kindly sent me their Spanish Food Hamper, containing the following: Montanegra Iberico Ham: widely recognised as the best Spanish ham due to the diet of grass and acorns that the black Iberian pigs are fed on which results in a tender, deep red and delicious ham, rich and nutty in flavour. Montanegra Iberico Chorizo: a premium chorizo sausage made from selected cuts from the Iberian pig blended carefully with garlic, salt and smoked paprika for an incredibly rich, yet soft sausage …

Serenata Flowers Hamper Review & Giveaway

At the weekend, I tried out a fabulous food hamper from Serenata Flowers called ‘Turn up the Heat!” In case you haven’t heard of them, Serenata Flowers has a huge range of flowers and gifts, with something for everyone and for all occasions. When they asked which hamper I would like to review, I knew it had to be this one, as it was packed with cheese and chocolate – as many of you will know, two of my very favourite things! As per the website, the hamper includes: Hand Waxed Hot Chilli Cheese 170g Hand Waxed Scrumpy & Crunchy Apple 170g Bambino Black Olive Crackers Bambino Moroccan Spicy Crackers Luxury Organic Bombay Mix Luxury Spicy Chilli Coated Peanuts Belgian Chocolate Fine Blended Whiskey Truffles in Clear Box Bottle Green Trug There were a few small replacements in my hamper – rather than Hot Chilli and Scrumpy & Crunchy Apple cheese, I was given Whittington Oak and Blackberries & Apple Cheese. And rather than Whisky Truffles, I was sent two bars of chocolate from KC Chocolatier – …
