Here’s a quick glance at some of their Gourmet Boxes:
- Oyster and Bubbly Box
The ultimate set to dial up on the romance, the Seafood Box includes 12 Saldanha Bay Closed Oysters, a jar of Fish Roe, and lemon on a bed of ice, and an oyster shucking knife for keeps. A bottle of Krone Borealis Vintage Cuvée Brut MCC ’19 bubbly rounds out this cool offering. If the skill of shucking your own oysters isn’t up your alley, a similar box with readily prepped and opened oysters can also be ordered.
- Italian Box
Whipping up an Italian feast was never this easy. The kit includes fresh aubergines, exotic mushrooms, flat pancetta, 1L extra virgin olive oil, tinned Italian tomatoes and Grana Padano cheese. And to spruce up on your presentation, they’ve added a freshly baked Ciabatta loaf, preserved Artichoke Hearts, sliced Proscuitto, Buffalo Mozzarella which guarantees a winning antipasto
- Cheese and Charcuterie Box
Perfect for a quick and easy cheese and wine evening. Camembert, Cheddar, Goats cheese, Creamy Blue cheese, and the softer, mild flavoured Dutch-style and matured Boerenkaas cheese is paired perfectly with a sliced assortment of Pepperoni Salami, Salami Felino/Rustico, Coppa, and Proscuitto Stagionnato ham. The set also includes a loaf of fresh sourdough bread and preserves. Pierce your Camembert with fresh Rosemary and pop it in the oven until melted for that extra gourmet touch.
We’ve highlighted our picks, but they have a much larger variety of artisanal produce, chef gadgets, and other essentials available via their online store.
