We LOVE LOVE LOVE getting presents through the post, it certainly beats bills aye? SO, you can imagine our delight to learn about Borough Box – the new company delivering a selection of the very best artisan foodie products from markets & producers across the country – straight to your door.
If you love the idea of trawling through markets, but the crowds or the cold put you off, this is for you. To be honest, if you love food, this is for you!
The box is available as a one off option, 3 month or 6 month subscription or you can send as a gift.
Collated by founder Andy & health conscious Dr Deborah Quinn, the pair manage to strike the perfect balance between naughty and nice. We found the selection to be both useful (pumpkin oil will be going into all of our salad dressings this week!) and indulgent – HELLLLLO handmade Fudge!
Not only that but the box comes complete with a handy guide to explain how you can enjoy them – we love the suggestion of adding our dried figs in honey to Greek yoghurt.
To give you an idea of the type of product to expect, take a peek into our Discovery Box……
Pink Himalayan Salt from Spice Mountain. With over one hundred herbs, spices and spice blends, Spice Mountain has one of the greatest collections of spices in London. Owner Magali Russie sources her spices direct from producers where possible, spice plantations in Goa and Kerala, vanilla farms in Mauritius, saffron producers in Spain and Kashmir.
Pumpkin Seed Oil, Luxury Fig & Walnut Cake and Infused Honey from Taste Croatia. Husband and wife Chris and Ana-Maria are the team behind Taste Croatia offering a tempting range of truffle, olive oil and sweet products from Istria – a region of Croatia which is famous for its exceptional cuisine. The pumpkin seed oil is a great product to have in the cupboard for both drizzling and adding to salads and dishes.
Organic Juice from Chegworth Valley, a family-run fruit farm established in the beautiful Kent countryside in 1983. The juices are produced from tree ripened, hand selected fruit which is pressed on site at the farm in small batches, often within hours of being picked. This is then lightly pasteurised to preserve the natural colours and flavours of the juice before being bottled on site.
Organic Life Tea. These organic wellness teas are a fusion of teas and traditional age-old herbal home recipes embraced in villages for general wellbeing. The herbs are grown locally by our community of small hold farmer, well versed in growing traditional herbs to retain the best of their properties and are certified organic.
Handmade Fudge by Whirld, an artisan confectionery company set up by Justine Cather – founder of award winning fudge company Burnt Sugar. The range of delicious artisan sweets are all handmade to traditional recipes using natural ingredients such as unrefined golden Fair trade sugar, cream and butter. Variations include Smashing Toffee, Gooey Chewy Nougat, Far Out Fudge, Bubbly Buzzin’ Honeycomb, Chilli Chocolate and Sea Salt Caramel.
And just for good measure they threw in a surprise bottle of prosecco, crisps and chocolates! We were thoroughly spoilt and can’t think of anyone that wouldn’t want this as a gift!
We can’t wait to see what’s in Box 2!
Also – we’ve blagged you a saving!
