I do of course hope to see as many readers as possible at the “Underground Christmas Market” on December 5th where you will be able to buy food and craft gifts as well as eating and drinking and hanging out listening to music. Here’s the link to buy tickets:
But in the meantime here’s a few things I personally would love to get for christmas and I hope it gives you all some great ideas for what to buy your loved ones, assuming they are foodies like me.
This glass teapot from Siléa would show off one’s whole leaf teas beautifully but I’ve not found it in Britain.
Retro oilcloth for tables from Casa Mexico. You can wipe it down, and it will brighten any kitchen.
Subscription to Fire & Knives: Tim Hayward’s bespoke food quarterly, elegant writing, fine illustrations.
Anything by Cornishware. Cheering seaside colours, sturdy porcelain, simultaneously modern and vintage. Classic.
I love this chocolate which has salty liquorice in liquid toffee form inside. From this Finnish site.
Sacred Spirits gin and vodka. Hand made in a micro distillery in Highgate. Ticks all the boxes for me.
I love Labour and Wait near Brick Lane. I buy my candles there. I like ‘quincaillerie’ hardware shops, in France, Labour and Wait approximates their style.
