The word ‘gourmet’ is used to describe someone with discerning taste, especially in relation to food. It indicates a higher level of quality, something out of the ordinary. ‘Epicure’ is a less known synonym, and here at Gourmet Basket, we have a wide selection of epicurean gift baskets for our discerning customers. Whether they enjoy artisanal cheese or craft beer, we can put together a selection they’re sure to love. Here are a few examples they might enjoy.
To start with, feed your favourite epicurean’s taste buds with a little bit of everything. This comprehensive selection has all you need for a gourmet meal. Try some hand-made lavosh spread with quince paste, any of the four sampler jams, crunchy macadamia honey, or tapenade from the entertainment pack that also contains dill dressing and chilli mustard.
Enjoy your exotic bread with T2 Allsorts Tea or Woolloomooloo blended coffee, or nibble on wasabi peanuts, organic liquorice, dried muscatels, chunky cookies, fudge, or rocky road. For a tasty barbeque, season your meat with healthy macrobiotic sea salt harvested by hand, and smoky bourbon marinade for that superior flavour. It’s all in the Epicurean Tastes hamper.
You can easily tell gourmet gift hampers by their names, and our Platinum Selection hamper doesn’t disappoint. From fine wine to soothing scents it’s all here. The gift basket has three flavours of Zokoko dark chocolate as well as assorted dark chocolate mixtures. There’s a truffle gift pack with salt, oil, and mustard, and a separate pack of black truffle salsa.
The hamper has three alcohol options – scotch, champagne, and red wine, as well as hibiscus flower essence to mix into your cocktails or champagne. To enjoy your gourmet cheese, the gift basket has a French cheese knife, ironwood cheeseboard, cheeseboard chutney, and peppery cheddar. Other items in the pack include macadamia honey, chocolate covered strawberries, a walnut log, and olives, complete with their own serving bowl. There’s also a scented candle.
Gift of the artisan
Few things whisper gourmet like that artisanal touch, and the Artisan Producer’s Hamper is the ideal selection of hand-made wonders. In addition to a Laguiole cheese knife, there are a handful of edible delights in these gourmet gift hampers. Salt isn’t generallygood for you, but if you must sprinkle some on your food, you’re safer and classier if it’s hand-harvested sea salt.
Buy local with an Australian bottle of Pukara extra virgin olive oil and Port Wilunga muscatels dried on the vine. Try some crunchy honey filled with raw macadamia, and a Byron gift bag of fig and pecan cookies. Any of these epicurean items can be enjoyed with a side of cheese, so if you like, you can pay a little extra and have some added to the hamper.
Every one of our gift baskets comes with a free gift card and 100% money-back guarantee. We deliver all over Australia, so get in touch with us and make your selection. To order gourmet gift baskets for someone you care about, call Gourmet Basket today on 1300 354 393.
