My beautiful #ArtisanSelection box from compareyourartisan.com has arrived, and first off I must say the delivery service was super-prompt. I can get a little impatient when it comes to food (because I love it so much, duhhh), so it was great they didn’t keep me waiting long at all!
I went for “The Foodie” – 8 assorted foodie-friendly Artisan selection items from their lovely range, and I let them surprise me, so had no idea what it was going to contain. It was as if they knew about my obsession with obscure and specialty teas (stemmed from a visit to Nepal in 2011) so I was delighted to see a box of wild, organic, hand-picked Mountain Tea from Greece… I have never seen anything like it, super intrigued… Cannot wait to try it. It also seemed a bit like magic that the box featured a chilli sauce – if you know me, you know I am obsessed with spice. These guys really do know their buyers & suppliers well, and I’m impressed already.
The box features a range of wonderful products, some local to the UK and some from as far afield as Italy & Greece! Details listed below:
~ Riverside Lifestyle Strawberry & Lavender Jam: riversidelifestyle.co.uk
~ Chilli Drops ‘BollyGood’ chilli sauce: chillidrops.co.uk
~ Urbangrains Organic Mountain Tea: urbangrains.net
~ Hasting’s Ketchup Company Lemon Ketchup: hastingsketchup.co.uk
~ Via Emilia Crema per Crostini di Olive Nere (Black Olive Crostini Spread): viaemilia.net
~ Agnes Rose Raspberry Vinegar: agnesrose.co.uk
~ Bonilla a la Vista Patatas Fritas: bonillaalavista.com
~ Breckland Orchard Cherry & Plum Posh Pop: brecklandorchard.co.uk
I will be trying each item in turn, keeping you posted on what each one tastes like. I’m excited already. In fact, I think I fancy croissants with Strawberry & Lavender Jam for breakfast. Yum.
