You're no fool, you know that food gifts always make the best gifts so we present our official City Larder 12 days of Christmas gift guide - because no one really wants a partridge in a pear tree, let alone drummers, milkmaids and a plethora of poultry - though we wouldn’t say no to five golden rings.
On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me City Larder Pita Crackers + Chicken Liver Pâté
Sometimes it’s the simple things that make the best gifts. You can’t get more classic than City Larder Pita Crackers, a top-notch match for our classic Free-Range Chicken Liver Pâté. Their subtle flavour and great crunch make them the perfect partner to pâté’s velvety parfait texture. Available in two delicious flavours - Olive Oil & Sea Salt or Garlic, Olive & Parmesan – they are free from any artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
On the second day of Christmas, my true love sent to me Mat's Hot Shop Originals
You probably have a hot sauce loving thrill seeker in your life. Give them the gift of award-winning Australian made Mat’s Hot Shop Originals. Formulated with all natural ingredients. That means no thickening gums, capsaicin extracts or artificial preservatives hidden here, just straight up flavour from high-quality ingredients. Mat’s Hot Shop Originals Spiceland, Peachango Tango, and Dillan cover all the flavour bases from funky, fruity, piquant, and sweet while still getting that satisfying chilli kick.
On the third day of Christmas, my true love sent to me Quinby's Chilli Honey
Calling all chilli lovers! Quinby's Chilli Honey is a smooth blend of Australian Wildflower Honey sweetness and the punchy piquancy of Habanero chilli. It’s infused at low temperature to maintain all that honey goodness while still delivering a real kick - a combination that needs to be tasted to be believed. Take your favourite pizza or fried chicken next level, make ice cream a whole new experience, pair with soft & hard cheeses, and create killer cocktails.
On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me Tamarind Tree
Whether you’re a spice novice or diehard spice lover, we all sometimes need a shortcut to flavour. That’s where Tamarind Tree comes in. Made in small batches from freshly roasted spices and the best Australian produce, these award-winning pastes and condiments will have you hankering for a curry like you wish your mum used to make. Choose your favourite combination of pastes, pickles, chutney and marinades. The possibilities are endless.
On the fifth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me Olsson's Red Gum Smoked Sea Salt
We’ve all got that hard-to-buy-for foodie in our lives. Olsson's Red Gum Smoked Sea Salt is the solution you’ve been looking for. Based on a popular Nordic tradition of smoking sea salt flakes, Olsson’s deliver an Australian twist by using native red gum wood to smoke their salt. Superb sprinkled over soft-boiled eggs, grilled fish or a perfectly ripe tomato. Add smoked salt to butter and lavish on roasted vegetables, freshly popped popcorn or a flawlessly cooked steak. Once you start, you won’t stop.
On the sixth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me a stash of Spanish treats
This season, give the gift of vicarious travel with a stash of premium Spanish foodstuffs because we all know the best part of travelling is really the meals. Starting with Spain’s quintessential spice – paprika. Smoked, sweet or spicy, Pimenton El Angel Paprika carries a rich aroma and complex flavour profile.
Next up grab some Olasagasti anchovies sustainably sourced from the Cantabrian coast. Plump and meaty, with an underlying sweetness on the palate, anchovies are perfect as a snack with some crunchy bread, or to add oomph to dressings and salads.
Don’t forget Safinter Saffron with its unmistakable flavour and exquisite aroma. Independently quality tested to ensure it is 100% pure, which means a little bit goes a long way. Then of course there’s barrel-aged sherry vinegar, sacks of the best paella rice, tins of Piquillo peppers - we see a tasty tapas feast in the near future.
