Irene Caswell takes a virtual trip to Santa’s grotto and returns with some sustainable Christmas gifts suggestions especially for gourmets.
Food and drink is one of the special delights of travelling. It connects people. Sharing a meal or a glass of something delicious is nurturing and companionable. This Christmas while we wait to hear whether we will be able to get together with extended family and friends, and real-time shopping is restricted by lockdown, an epicurean gift ordered online and delivered direct is the perfect solution.
The quality of the food we eat is critical to our health and wellbeing, while supporting independent growers, farmers and producers is essential for sustainable living. It is the food that we pay the most for that are especially at risk of fraudulent practices, such as honey, olive oil, coffee and wine. Traceability not only ensures the quality of a product but enables fair pricing and best practices.
Here is a round-up of unique gifts produced in a sustainable manner to transport the senses, create festive goodwill and connect with the world around us, through our sense of taste and smell.
