The Fireside Hamper
When it’s frosty outside and you’re sat in front of the flickering flames of the fire indoors, there’s nothing you want more than a selection of delicious comfort foods to give you a real sense of cosiness. We’ve planned our Fireside Hamper around achieving this very feeling, and have packed in some excellent fine foods including wine, chocolates, cheese, cookies, and tarts for you to enjoy in front of the warm glow of the fire and the television.
We have carefully considered the hamper’s contents so that it contains hand-picked, complementary items that will help bring pleasure to the recipient.
Whether you’re having a cosy night in alone or with your friends and family, you’ll be spoilt for choice with this luxury hamper. First, why not pour yourself a glass of Pierre et Papa Maison Familiale Blanc to enhance that fireside feeling? It’s a fresh and aromatic wine that’s crisp and lively with an abundance of tangy citrus fruit on the palate to produce a refreshing and highly quaffable taste. For something to nibble on whilst you sip, we’ve included an excellent choice of cheeses - try the Cotswold Organic Brie, a delicious white soft-moulded cheese made using organic milk to produce a rich creamy, clean, and fresh taste which becomes stronger with age. The Oxford Blue is an organic soft blue veined cheese with a delicious creamy texture and a fresh clean taste that develops as the cheese matures, perfect with Cottage Delight Caramelised Onion Chutney and Carr’s Water Biscuits. We’ve also included a delicious Hamptons Duck and Orange Pâté, which is made for us in France with a deliciously coarse texture.
For those seeking a sweet treat to enjoy in front of the fire, there’s a Seed and Bean Organic Fairtrade Chocolate Bar, and Kimberley’s Handmade Chocolates will do just the trick with their selection of fine English chocolates in a pretty presentation box. Border Double Dipped Chocolate Cookies are another delicious treat.You’ll get a warm glow after trying both of our Hamptons Tarts too, both homemade in our kitchens in Stow-on-the-Wold. The Bakewell is the perfect teatime treat with moreish almond paste and toasted almonds, and our Lemon Tart is full of flavour and is delicious in the fireglow.
Hamptons offer a range of packaging options. We can pack your hamper in a special gift box or an open wicker basket or a wicker picnic basket or in a plain Hamptons box. Purchases can be made at the shop or delivered. If the latter, we ensure that it is carefully protected with extra outer packaging with consideration for the environment to make sure that your hamper arrives safely. We use a flexible delivery service, operating a weekday 24-hour service to the UK, so you can rest assured that as long as you order in time, your hamper will reach its recipient by the day you specify.
