I’m fuming. As of yesterday I was all set to go to Tenerife on my holidays on Christmas Eve for a week of sun, sea, sand and 3 jugs of Sangria before breakfast. Well, the Canary Islands were just taken off the Travel Corridor and so we’re not going to go anymore. Gutted.
Fear not though, because our favourite Spanish restaurant, La Bandera, are now offering up a range of exquisite Christmas Hampers, which, although they’re not as good as an actual holiday to Tenerife – they’re still a massively welcome addition to our COVID-tainted lives.
La Bandera are basically bringing the Canary Islands to you with a range of hampers stuffed with the very best in Spanish cheeses, meats and of course – some of the best small-batch independent Spanish wines that money can buy.
There’s three Hamper options available;
Artisan Cheese Hamper (£24.95): 4 Cheeses, Homemade Fig Jam, Onion Chutney, Crackers.
Ibéricos Hamper (£24.95): Jamón, Chorizo, Salchichón, Lomo, Olives, Almonds, Kikos.
Spanish Delicatessen (£26.95): Jamón, Chorizo, 2 Cheeses, Olives, Crackers, Onion Chutney.
For each hamper you can have the choice of a bottle of red, white or rosé wine (£24), a bottle of Jaume Serre Brut Nature Cava (£26) or a specially selected WINE FLIGHT (£24.95); 4 wines beautifully paired with each meat or cheese in your hamper.
Finally, you can also choose to BUILD YOUR OWN Christmas Hamper, where you can select every single aspect of what goes into your hamper, making it totally personal to you or the person you’re buying it for.
The hampers are available for collection or local delivery, and if you want them delivered nationwide – La Bandera can do that for you too. Head on over to their Online Store to get them…
