1. For meat
For meat orders, try Provenance, an excellent Notting Hill butcher that delivers to W11,W10,W8 and W2 postcodes. This year they have boneless whole chicken marinated in thyme, lemon and honey plus a wide range of pies made in house and a special gluten free pork, pomegranate and chestnut stuffing made in store. H.G. Walter (near Baron’s Court) and famed Holland Park butcher C. Lidgates will also be offering home delivery, but as always, best to get your order in long before the 20 December to beat the crowd.
2. For cheese
Visit the website of La Cave a Fromage, where you can visit a virtual cheese trolley and buy online. Just click on the individual cheese to find out more (we love the Comte Reserve), add to basket and have it delivered straight to your door. Or, try the Paxton & Whitfield selection of Super Golds – a selection of cheeses which bare the World Cheese Awards Super Gold medal. £38.00/approx 1kg, paxtonandwhitfield.co.uk
3. For wine
Try Lea & Sandeman, who offer great deals on select cases. Try a box of Bordeaux for £202.90 or a case specially selected by the ‘Wine Gang’ – a group of the UK’s best known wine experts like Anthony Rose and Jane Parkinson – available for £344.10. Free delivery is available for orders over £100.
4. For fruit and vegetables
Let Farmdrop do the leg work. Select the food you want from featured organic food producers and farmers markets, and they’ll deliver it straight to your home. You can find anything from organic pak choi and kabocha squash to brown sourdough rolls.
