Birds of a feather

For 80 years, Peach Croft Farm has been rearing award-winning British turkeys for the holiday season. The Hockenhull breed is especially sough after. The birds roam free on pasture and grow slowly on a natural diet, so the meat is more deeply flavoured.

Cut and dried

After developing a passion for charcuterie while running chalets in the French Alps, former cabinetmaker Nick Brake launched his own brand in the UK in 2014. Rutland Charcuterie Company makes salamis and air-dried meats with high welfare standards, impeccable provenance and incredible flavour. From Italian-style coppa to South-African-style biltong, this is global thinking, local eating.

Pick & mix

Inspired by 1971 film Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, Californian couple Rosie O’Neill and Josh Resnick decided to create a sweets boutique for grown-ups; today Sugarfina stocks 140 types of candy from all over the world. Bestsellers include gummy bears made from Champagne, and rosé roses for wine lovers; those with a serious sweet tooth can build their own bento boxes in-store.

Look SHARP

To cover even more culinary bases, Wolf Gourmet has just released three new ranges. The six-piece knife block set has stainless-steel blades forged in Germany and comes housed in a wooden storage block. A cookware range – also in stainless steel – is multi-clad to ensure even heating and durability. The brand has also brought out a professional-grade blender and a two-or four-slice toaster with a keep-warm feature.

On the CASE

Accessories brand Charlotte Olympia has teamed up with Veuve Clicquot to design the case for the house’s La Grande Dame 2006 cuvée. The design has the Charlotte Olympia trademark old-Hollywood glamour, with gold lettering and a leopard-print lining. The Champagne itself boasts floral notes, with undertones of nougat and ginger, and a crisp and silky texture. (available at select fine wine and spirits stores worldwide)
