Birthday gifts for foodies
For a food-loving friend, family member, colleague or neighbour, Barbury Hill is your one-stop destination for birthday gifts for foodies. From artisan cheese to hampers brimming with gastronomic delights, our extensive range of food and drink gifts offer a treat for all tastes and all occasions.
And with all of our products handpicked and tried and tested, we’re confident that our British food and drink from small independent producers, many of them award-winning, will delight the birthday girl or boy.
The Kitchen Box - Beal’s Farm
For the meat-loving foodie, The Kitchen Box from Beal’s Farm is an imaginatively intriguing gift. This selection of cuts comes from Mangalitsa pigs, reared in woodland and pastures on a family farm in Sussex. Winners of multiple Great Taste awards, Beal’s Farm meats are featured on Michelin Star menus, and rightly so. These meats are lightly gamey, with a sweet, nutty, intense flavour and the versatile Kitchen Box will allow the lucky recipient to add a dash of pizazz to their culinary repertoire.
Featuring pancetta, nduja, papada/guanciale, cooking chorizo and pure Mangalitsa lard, The Kitchen Box is a fantastic birthday gift for a foodie friend.
Trio of Pâtés & Dips - Pinney’s of Orford
A firm favourite with Barbury Hill customers, Pinney’s of Orford’s Trio of Pâtés & Dips includes Smoked Fish Pâté, Smoked Salmon Pâté, and Taramasalata. Smoked in their own smokehouses in Suffolk, this trio is a delicious treat. The creamy combination of mackerel and trout fillets as well as hot smoked salmon makes the Smoked Fish Pâté a luxuriously simple lunch when served with a squeeze of lemon and some fresh bread. The Smoked Salmon Pâté is equally rich, while the Icelandic cod roe of the Taramasalata makes this a deserved best-seller.
Add in some crusty bread, and a bottle of Madeleine Angevine from fellow Suffolk producer, Gifford’s Hall, and this is a birthday gift to delight any gastronome.
The Barbury Hill Breakfast Box
If the birthday girl or boy is a fan of a big breakfast, then look no further than The Barbury Hill Breakfast Box. With everything they need to whip up a breakfast of champions, this is a standout birthday gift for the foodie in your life. Featuring both back and streaky back bacon together with Mangalitsa sausages, it’s a cut above the usual Full English. With Morcilla, a delicious aromatic Black Pudding style sausage made to an old family recipe, they’ll be dining like a King for their birthday breakfast.
And if the birthday celebrations were a little indulgent the night before, can we suggest including the Morning After with Botanic Nº 7 Vodka? Featuring a bottle of Gattertop Drinks Co.’s aromatic botanical vodka and two bottles of Turner Hardy’s Bloody Mary mixers, this has the makings of a winning combination as a birthday gift for a foodie.
Godminster - A Trio of Vintage Organic Cheddars
Barbury Hill’s latest British producer, Godminster, is a welcome addition to our growing range of artisan cheese. And their Trio of Vintage Organic Cheddars is another ideal option for a birthday gift. This award-winning collection comes in its own box, so wrapping is a doddle, and each cheese is wrapped in a distinctive coloured wax to preserve the deep flavours.
This is a well-decorated selection and any foodie will delight in the wealth of awards these cheeses have accrued over the years, which include:
- Vintage Organic Cheddar Truckle - voted the Nation’s Favourite Organic Product at the Best of Organic Market Awards
- Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar Truckle - awarded Gold at the World Cheese awards 2018
- Black Truffle Vintage Organic Cheddar Truckle - winner of Gold at the acclaimed International Cheese Awards in July 2019
