Hear ye hear ye! I feel like I'm Mrs Claus sometimes! Here is the second of our Twelve Days of Christmas competitions. And today I have a lovely hamper of goodies for you! Here is a hamper with a bit of a difference. In this hamper, which can sort out any sort of corporate or personal gift, this is full of hand picked artisan goodies from the NSW region. Yep artisan products, not a mass of supermarket items.
The Artisans of NSW hamper
Now I know I have a tough job as I had to taste test every one of these products and I happily did so. The slab of Rochford chocolate dotted with cocoa nibs was delectable, the award winning Crooked Creek cheese biscuits were crumbly and moreish, the Lomondo Extra Virgin olive oil was delightfully fresh and the Lakelands sun dried olives (made the proper way without any shortcuts) were of course appropriated by olive loving Mr NQN.
Then there was the delicious rhubarb and raspberry jam by The Jammery, the Honest to Goodness tamari roasted almonds which proudly proclaimed "no nasties added", the gorgeous Nicholson wild hibiscus flowers and a lovely Cuttaway Creek raspberry sauce. And after dessert I finished off with the petit fours: chewy rich caramel bon bons from Sweetness and some amazing Leppington Farm Chocolate coated figs which had a crunchy almond in the centre. And the best thing about these apart from the taste is that when you flip the packet over and have a look at the ingredients, there are no numbers, preservatives or nasties added, just real food!
