Holiday Gifts For Foodies

We all know someone who is really interested in food: someone who treats eating like an avocation. They not only like eating exceptional food, they also like being adventurous and trying new cuisines. Our Christmas gifts for foodies are designed around the finest ingredients from local artisanal food makers as well as from small producers around the world.

We offer farmhouse cheeses made from cow, goat or sheep milk where one can really taste the difference in terroir, buttery Atlantic smoked salmon and gravalax farmed on the coastal waters of Scottland, prosciutto di parma made using the ancient methods developed in Italy, and premium Ostra caviar sustainably farmed in natural lakes from freshwater sturgeon. You can imagine how mouth-watering these Christmas presents for foodies will be to receive!

Many food lovers also like to cook. Think about sending a Christmas gourmet gift basket that will fill their cupboards with the best pantry items such as Spanish capers; tiny Ligurian black olives, extra virgin olive oil from ancient trees on a small estate in a little town in Puglia, Italy; organic hand-rolled couscous; and delightful Herbes de Provence. Or perhaps you’d prefer to send the makings of a Mediterranean meal, all in one complete gift.

The ultimate Christmas present for a food lover can be found in our Epicurean Hamper. We circled the globe to bring the finest examples of sweet and savory treats to this gift and brought it all together in a single basket. With smoked salmon, prosciutto and a selection of cheeses with all the delectable accompaniments, to delicate chocolates and fancy petit-fours, the gourmand on your holiday list will be able to create an entire feast to savor. We named our Epicurean Hamper after Epicurus, the ancient Greek philosopher who developed the school of “Epicureanism”. The thinking he espoused was that life should be happy and peaceful, and that pleasure was good, and pain was evil and to be avoided. Epicurus believed that relishing food and drink was a significant part of enjoying life to its fullest. Modern day epicureans would agree!
