In this month’s box we celebrated Cornwall’s world-renowned foodie scene with the theme ‘CörnishBord’ – our very own take on the classic ‘smörgåsbord’. It featured a selection of savoury accompaniments and some delicious Cornish coffee to finish it off.
First up is the Spicy Tomato and Chilli Relish from The Cornish Larder. A new company, The Cornish Larder was established in 2018 by a young chef named Jake Kendall. Their preserves are completely handmade with local ingredients and unique recipes. The result: jars of preserves that take you on a complete culinary tour of this beautiful county we call home. We’ve included their Spicy Tomato and Chilli Relish in this box and it’s delicious!
Next is a fabulous little mug from Cornishware. This cute addition comes from a British brand that has been supporting the classic Cornish blue and white stripes for nearly a century. This baby Cornish Blue 4oz Mug is just perfect for espresso, little hands and little puds. Plus, if you loved this little one as much as we do then they also produce a full set of kitchenware in the famous stripes so you can completely kit out your kitchen.
To accompany the espresso mug we’ve included a pack of Daymer Filter Blend coffee from The Padstow Coffee Company. Padstow Coffee Company hand roast their coffees in the heart of Padstow using the finest quality beans to ensure you get the perfect cup. Perfect at any time of the day, Daymer is one of The Padstow Coffee Company’s luxury filter blends – well balanced with soft acidity, wild berry notes and herbal aromatics. If you’re ever in Padstow and love your coffee, head down to Duke Street and visit their shop – it’s a coffee-lover’s paradise.
Established in the 1940s as a market garden, Boddington’s Berries is now run by the third generation of the family, still growing strawberries for the fresh market but also producing high-fruit content quality preserves. Boddington’s has now extended the range to include blackberry, raspberry, orange marmalade, strawberry vinegar, apple chutney and red onion relish, all made without artificial additives or preservatives. Inside this month’s box you’ll find the delicious apple chutney – the perfect sarnie accompaniment. Sweet, fruity and warming!
Last, but definitely not least are some Cornish Sea Salt Thins from the Popti Cornish Bakehouse. These award-winning savoury thins are rich with butter and seasoned with crunchy Cornish sea salt. The biscuits are made in small batches with the kind of ingredients you’d find in your kitchen at home; rich butter, wheat flour and seasonings. There are no artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives added either; they’re the perfect accompaniment for buttery soft cheeses, cured meats, rich patés and rillettes.
