5 Top Christmas Gifts for Foodies

The Kilner Drink Dispenser

What's the best thing about Christmas? It could be opening presents on Christmas morning, bratwurst and beer at the Christmas markets in Hyde Park or family and friends on Christmas day. Whatever your favourite thing, I'm not sure about you, but I always spend plenty of time cooking and preparing for the Christmas dinner and these kitchen must haves definitely make that Christmas period easier and extra special. These are proper great gifts for him and her foodies and not one rubbish filled Hamper in sight!

Buy for £107.00
1) Wusthof Kitchen Knives
I have a set of four Wusthof knives and sharpener but this starter set of three is a bit easier on the pocket. They are pricey but last forever and these knives are also used by Michelin chef Raymond Blanc - even though he wont actually mention this.
Amazon sell the above set of three £107.00

Top French Chocolate from - Valrhona

Buy for £15.00
2 Kilner Drink Dispenser

I finally found one of these 5ltr Kilner dispensers to make your own GOOD mulled wine, not the rubbish they hand out at the xmas fare. If you want one they are selling them on Amazon now.
This dispenser goes for around £20 but the one above I found is a bargain for £15.00.

Buy for £35.00

3) Valrhona Chocolate
This exceptional chocolate from the small village Tain-l'Hermitage in France is used in some of the most exclusive restaurant's in the world and its from premium chocolate maker Valrhona. This box is for serious chocolate lovers.

The Artisan Cheese Makers Kit

4) Cheese Maker
I've always wanted to make my own cheese, but I'd never had the gear & was a nightmare trying to find online but this is all in one!
This above kit makes a wonderful gift for £30.00.
Ultimate Gift - Kellerman Champagne Sabre 
Buy now £399.95
5) Kellerman Champagne Sabre
I love this Sabre. This is the ultimate gift for the person who has everything. This impressive show piece has a 22kt gilded hilt and comes in a wooden oak presentation box. This will always impress your guests - who doesn't love a bit of theatre, and for that someone who has everything? They won't have one of these.
This Sabre is  £399.95

Le Salon Prive Restaurant, St Margarets Twickenham

La Salon Prive (The Private Lounge) is actually a newly re-invigorated, and much needed refurbished Brula - a French Bistro restaurant based in St Margaret's, Twickenham for over 15 years.
The restaurant went through an ownership change back in January (the former owners having connections with other Richmond restaurants, La Buvette and A Cena, as well as Covent Garden restaurant Joe Allens). The new proprietor happens to be the same owner of a very popular Italian restaurant, Bacco, in Richmond. Bacco is one of my top Italian fine dining eats and here's a review of Bacco here.

La Salon have kept the lovely glass stained windows but have totally redone the inside. Formerly the restaurant resembled something similar to your geriatric granny's living room - it might seem charming but it really felt like it had been under-invested, incidentally a similar theme also exists at Richmond restaurant La Buvette. After La Salon's refurbishment the room feels much lighter inside,…

Petersham Hotel | Restaurant Review | Richmond

The Petersham Hotel Restaurant Richmond
Things are looking up for Petersham Hotel, they have a new Head Chef Adebola Adeshina who seems to be proving a winner for the restaurant, and I was to discover why. 
Adebola is a popular chap (fanboy's in my twitter stream confessing their love), he is most certainly friendly, has oodles of experience to match and it is understandable why, he is an all round nice guy. Adebola worked at a number of top London eateries, starting out at Gordon Ramsay's first restaurant, Aubergine before moving on to Gordon's 3 Michelin star restaurant on Hospital Road. He's also worked with Marcus Wareing at Petrus, Philip Howard at the Square, ...I mean, what more could you possibly want?
I was lucky enough to score an invitation to discover the new chefs cuisine, and as usual I always like to have full disclosure that this was a sponsored visit. I have however dined before and found the standard excellent enough to recommend Petersham as one of …
