The Stratford Gift Basket

Delight that special person in your life with The Stratford Gift Basket.  A traditional hamper basket filled full of delicious tasty treats and to accompany your preferred bottle choice if chosen.

Thomas Fudge’s remarkable bakery have created a sweet sensation within their Belgian chocolate salted caramel Florentine’s.  Wildly indulgent, these Florentine’s are a fusion of fruit, nuts, salted caramel and finished with delicious Belgian milk chocolate. Give in to the temptation as life’s too short for mediocre!

Savour the crunch within the Peter’s Yard fig and spelt sourdough crackers. Swedish traditions are combined with British craft and the finest of natural ingredients to create these hand baked delights.

From Raydale Preserves we have the Elijah’s Yorkshire Chutney.  A sharp rhubarb based chutney, sourced locally from within the famous yet mysterious ‘rhubarb triangle’ in Yorkshire. A great all rounder which goes perfectly well with cheese.

Deliciously moreish are the luxury hand cooked crisps from Yorkshire Crisps.  Produced with Yorkshire potatoes, there is nothing artificial within this tub of Cheddar and caramelised onion chutney flavour crispy delights.

The Tiptree, Wilkin and Sons piccalilli is a classic cheese and pate accompaniment made from all natural ingredients.  This is a classy little jar of flavoursome vegetables with real crunch and bite.

Fancy something different on your cheese or charcuterie board then try the ‘fruits for cheese’.  This set caramelised apple jelly won a Gold Great Taste Award and we can understand why!  Its a delicious alternative to a chutney or relish.

For a sweet sumptuous treat the Mallow and Marsh light and fruity raspberry marshmallows are coated in luxuriously rich 70% dark chocolate.  Marshmallows….but not as you know them.

Choose your favourite flavour of cheese truckles from the Chuckling Cheese and the Cheshire Cheese Companies Award Winning range, they taste so good you wont want to stop eating them!

Whether you send this gift just to savour the delights inside or by making it extra special with the bottle of your choosing, this will be a totally stunning gift for any recipient.
