Cornwall is well-known for its stunning landscapes, seascapes, and delectable cuisine. Cornish delicacies are a must-try for any foodie, from mouth-watering pasties to delicious sweet treats. If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind gift, why not design and create your own bespoke hamper to send to a loved one? We supply and deliver some of the best Cornish cuisine treats. Here are the top five delicacies you should include in your hamper.
Cornish pasties are a staple of Cornish cuisine and an absolute must for any hamper. Shortcrust pastry is used to make the pasties, which are filled with a variety of fillings to suit your needs and tastes. For a more traditional option, try our Cornish Premier Medium Steak Pasties, which come in a pack of two and are made with locally sourced beef skirt, potatoes, swede, onion, and seasoning. During the baking process, this cut of beef creates a rich gravy, resulting in a truly flavourful Cornish Pasty.
We also have a vegan option in the form of our Cornish Premier Medium Spicy Mediterranean Vegan Pasties. These pasties, which come in a pack of two, are proven to get your taste buds tingling and are made as the first batch of the day using vegan pastry. They're loaded up with a wide range of veggies, including tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and onions. Kidney beans, soy sauce, herbs and spices such as ginger, oregano, garlic, and chilli are all added.
Clotted cream is a luxurious treat that is ideal for those who enjoy sweets. It's a thick, rich, and creamy cream that goes great with scones or fresh strawberries. Rodda's Classic Cornish Clotted Cream is one of Cornwall's best clotted creams. It is a must-have for any Cornish hamper. Rodda's is made from 100% Cornish milk, resulting in a thick consistency that ensures perfect dolloping every time. A delectable garnish for a cream tea, dessert, or sweet bake.
Cornish cider is a fantastic delicacy that would go well in a Cornish-themed hamper. Cornish cider is made from locally grown apples and has a distinctive taste that is entirely unique to the region. Rattler is one of Cornwall's most well-known cider brands. Healey's Cornish Rattler Cider is a cloudy, fruity cider that encapsulates the Rattler bite in the bottle. It has a sharp, crisp zing that is mixed with apple for an amazingly refreshing taste. Healey's also has the Healey's Rattler Mulled Cider, which can be enjoyed hot or cold throughout the year. This type of cider is extremely comforting and warming, and it is perfect for drinking next to a roaring fire.
Cider adds a touch of sophistication to a Cornish hamper, making it stand out from the crowd. Furthermore, Cornish cider goes well with a variety of cheeses and other foods, making it a versatile and tasty addition to your hamper.
Scones are a staple of Cornish cuisine, and they make an excellent addition to any Cornish hamper. These delectable baked goods are ideal for a cream tea, especially when combined with our Rodda's Clotted Cream and Boddington's Strawberry Jam. But be sure to consume it the Cornish way: jam first, followed by a dollop of clotted cream! We offer a variety of scones that are essential components of a cream tea, such as our Fruit Scones and Plain Scones, both of which come in a pack of four. We also have vegan scones, and if you're looking for something a little savoury, a cheese scone with a little butter, when warmed, makes a delicious treat!
Why not round out the perfect cream tea with a box of Cornish Smugglers Brew Tea? You will receive a box of 40 teabags containing a one-of-a-kind tea blend designed to be an everyday brew.
Cornish fudge is a tasty and traditional treat that is excellent for any Cornish-themed hamper. Our Buttermilk Clotted Cream Fudge is made with the finest ingredients, including local Cornish cream and butter, and has a rich and creamy texture that melts in your mouth.
Cornish fudge is a delicious way to showcase the unique flavours and traditions of Cornwall, and it is sure to please anyone who enjoys a sweet treat!
