Dukeshill – offer an uncompromising attitude towards quality
You know it’s Christmas when Dukeshill Hampers become available to order and when mine arrived this week on a wet and windy day it lifted my spirits no end, let the festivities begin!
If you’ve not ever ordered a foodie-inspired artisan hamper as a gift, well now’s your chance, a DukesHill Hamper is the perfect gift for that foodie in your life or for those who have everything! This is a heavenly delight of exciting goodies presented in a most luxurious hamper.
There are several hampers to choose from covering all budgets. They have fun Christmas-inspired names, such as The Jingle Bells Hamper, The Nutcracker Hamper, Rudolph Hamper, The Three Kings Hamper, and many more, but the piece de residénce is ‘The Truly Magnificent Hamper’ and boy is it ever, it certainly lives up to its name! It includes 39 items and is delivered in two large hampers. The main feature being the Dukeshill extremely famous St George’s boneless ham which is cured in mild and sweet Wiltshire brine, before baking in a glaze of spiced oranges, cinnamon, mace and cloves ( 4.5kg minimum weight), and the Sliced Oak Smoked Salmon Side (1kg). I’m now Christmas-ready, apart from fresh fruit and vegetables no grocery shopping for me. There are cheeses, a huge pork pie, several bottles of high-end wine plus a bottle of champagne, there are chocolates, mince pies, a paté, chutneys, sablés, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding, nuts, peaches and more…See the full list of goodies here
We have dipped into the hamper and allowed ourselves some early Christmas indulgences, the almond topped mince pies are simply divine, rich and crumbly and with a generous dollop of brandy butter are exceptionally special. The Colston Bassett Stilton was calling out to me and coupled with the heavenly Proper Piccalilli Kilner was extremely Christmassy. We did cheat a little and opened a stunning bottle of red, Barolo del Comune di La Morra, Crissante, paired with the cheese beautifully.
Although we did indulge in a few early hamper goodies we still have plenty left, in fact, enough for Christmas Eve all the way through to Boxing Day, and we can’t wait!
