Win a Sussex Gourmand gift box!

Bag a special bresaola canape kit for yourself or a foodie in your life

Whether you’re entertaining this Christmas or looking for a gift for a foodie, a Sussex based bresaola maker could be the tasty answer.

Sussex Gourmand, which produces beef and venison bresaola, laid on the fabulous canapés for the Muddy Awards winners’ drinks this year.

The company’s thin cured, smoked and air-dried meat is made in the traditional Italian style but using local meat and the know-how of catering expert Liz Wakefield, who has notched up Great Taste Awards for the product.

Not only does Liz cater for events but she also sells canapés kits with all the ingredients to assemble them yourself – so you can wow your guests with really professional looking nibbles.

For presents there are Sussex Gourmand gift boxes which combine canapé ingredients and other goodies.  While some hamper contents can be a bit random and end up at the back of a cupboard, Liz’s gift boxes are carefully curated to maximise flavour and taste matches so everything works well together. You can buy these online, or catch Liz at local farmers markets and food shows. It’s a delicious gift that combines artisan craft, award-winning quality and a taste of the countryside.

Among options are the Forest & Field gift box which makes 48 gorgeous bites and includes:

50g Sussex wild venison bresaola

Beetroot relish (made with local organic beets and honey)
24 Forest mushroom thins for serving.

50g Sussex native breed grass-fed beef bresaola
Wild rocket pesto
24 Parmesan & nigella seed thins

Or, you can add a boozy element with the Gin Aperitivo gift box, with the ingredients for a gin tasting session and 24 canapés.

50ml each of three different Sussex gins (Slake, Chilgrove and Brighton)
50g Sussex native breed grass-fed beef bresaola
Wild rocket pesto
24 Parmesan & nigella seed thins

There are also gift boxes incorporating Sussex wine, chocolates and smoked salmon. The packaging for the boxes is eco-friendly and they are chilled and delivered with tasting notes and a gift tag.

Best of all, we have a choice of a Forest & Field or Gin Aperitivo gift box to give away!
