Are you looking for that perfect gift for your food-lover this Christmas? Here are a few ideas for unique Christmas gifts for foodies.
FOR THE CULTURAL FOODIE
Exclusive Tasting Menu for Two at Zoilo
Zoilo embraces the diversity of cultures with an Argentine cuisine that creates dishes to thrill and inspire. Chef Diego Jacquet, who trained under world-renown chefs, explores the art of sharing with regional produce.
Enjoy true south American food with a 10-course Argentine tapas menu for two, exclusive to TRULY guests. Start with a signature cocktail or aperitif, followed by delectable sharing plates. Perhaps you will try the famous Mr. Hendrick’s cocktail or the crab on toast. There is always the option of sampling wines throughout the meal.
FOR THE FOODIE WITH THE SWEET TOOTH
If you love handmade biscuits, this gift is for you. Here, all ingredients used are natural. Most of the biscuit “icers” are artists, so each biscuit is unique in design, colour and shape. At Biscuiteers, there have been bespoke commissions, for example Harvey Nichols and Selfridges 100 birthday.
For a gift, come for afternoon tea with a friend, where you will be able to enjoy many of the traditional tea essentials. You will have a tea consisting of biscuits, sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, tea, coffee, cupcakes, cookies, macaroons and brownies.
FOR THE FOODIE WHO LIKES TO SHARE
Michelin Star Dining for Two at Hakkasan
Experience a gift of world-famous cuisine at Hakkasan. Come in and experience modern dining in an area with natural daylight and hand-painted Chinese wallpaper. From here, you will be able to watch the chef cook.
To start your gift, you can decide to eat at either Hakkasan Hanway or Hakkasan Mayfair. Once seated, you will enjoy an eight dish sharing menu, with dishes combining both traditional wok and barbeque cooking methods. The dishes are made from local and organic produce and exhibit the skill, passion and diversity Hakkasan is known for.
