Our Hampers Have It All

All of our hampers are made to order and use the best freshly made food: top British ingredients, and full of food you really do want to eat now rather than tuck it away for a rainy day (or even worse, to then forget about!) New to our range this year, Forman’s Finest Hamper is a carefully curated selection of our best selling products. Presented in a classy black wicker hamper, it really is the best of the best.

It’s hard to pick when there’s so much delicious British produce to choose from, but we’ve tried our best and picked a few we think really are must-haves this Christmas, either as a gift or a treat for yourself!




Grade One Sliced Side of Smoked Salmon

Our most popular gift year after year, each side is carefully hand carved by ourIMG_20151103_121646resized experts and presented in a wonderful presentation pack. Ready to serve as soon as you receive it! This truly is a luxury that you can really savour and share. Forman’s Smoked Salmon is world famous for it’s superior quality and flavour, and is something that’s perfect for sharing. Cured in rock salt and smoked in oak smoke, nothing more nothing less. 







Forman & Field’s Hand-Mixed Christmas Puddings

This award winning recipe is one of Lloyd Hardwick’s own, and everything that Christmas pudding with saucepan (3)goes into it is done by hand. Everything is hand-chopped, hand-mixed, hand-shaped, and hand-packaged. (We like to get hands on!) We cook it a third of the way, for the rest of the cooking to be done at home. This means when it arrives with you, the flavours have all developed and the texture will be all gooey. These puds are famed for their rich toffee aromas.








Seldom Seen Norfolk Bronze TurkeyA 10809

These Bronze turkeys are a plump-breasted traditional breed and grow naturally
and slowly, roaming and eating freely in the outdoors. Claire Symington from Seldom Seen says that this gives the turkey a “deep, resonating flavour” and trust us you can really taste it. Superb quality, the birds are dry plucked by hand, giving them extra crispy skin when cooking.
