Roundup - Charcuterie Wine and Recipe Books!

A roundup of new and exciting food related products that I've been lucky enough to receive this past month - please note they are listed in no particular order.

The Carnivore Club


This is British Charcuterie at it's best; each box delivered to your door from Carnivore Club contains between 4-6 handcrafted cured meats from top artisans.
Our box arrived in perfect condition and the contents were from Deli Farm Charcuterie in Cornwall.  Our box contained Sliced Coppa, Spicy Chorizo, Pancetta, Devil's Poker (a spicy salami stick) Garlic Salami and Coppa Chops.

I must say we're really impressed with the whole thing from the packaging, delivery and quality of the meats.  The Carnivore Club is a great way to try many different cured meat products and also to learn about them too.  A really helpful booklet is included in each box and explains more about the supplier and the products included in the box.   

Subscription members pay £29/month and sign up for a 3 month minimum, and can cancel anytime once that period has passed.  However, if you don't want to join the club you can order a single box for just £32

The Carnivore Club is also available in the USA and Canada.  Treat yourself or send a box as a gift.

**I have a discount code for my readers - to receive 20% off your first purchase - please use Oil20 at checkout.

Wilde Thing wine by Lisa McGuigan


Fourth generation of an Australian wine dynasty, Lisa McGuigan launches her self-titled collection of wines in the UK. Lisa combines a wealth of wine knowledge and a flare for fashion to launch an Australian wine that speaks to consumers rather than intimidating them. 

Now I know very little about wine but what I do know is we both loved this.  Nice and refreshing and really easy to drink.  Perfect for sharing a bottle in the garden on a nice summers day or, if you ask me, any day for that matter!

Wilde Thing RRP: £7.00
Chardonnay Pinot Grigio
Clear pale straw in colour
Aromas of apple and pear combine with peach on a fruit forward nose
Palate: Apple and peach on the palate are complimented by a long refreshing finish
Food pairing: Fresh seafood or a mango salsa

i heart Wines 

The grapes for the 2013 i heart Pinot Grigio were sourced from all over Hungary.  This is a fresh, crisp, dry white wine.  Delicate citrus aromas and lemon and lime flavours, with great balance and freshness on the palate.  Best served chilled - a great match for grilled white fish, seafood salads, chicken dishes or simply on its own.

As I mentioned before I know very little about wine - all I know is I either like it or I don't and this Pinot Grigio was easy to drink and very refreshing and yes I really liked it.

i heart Pinot Grigio £6.00
Light and Crisp
