Rather a lot of roses will be ordered this week. If you’re lost for ideas, don’t let clichés hamper your creativity. Create a surprise order for someone you’re fond of and send a foodie gift that someone will fall for.
I particularly love the refreshing Mr. Fitzpatrick’s Rhubarb & Rosehip Cordial. He’s particularly passionate about vintage drinks and I think this one’s certainly got a touch of old fashioned romance about it, (it’s also rather good as a cheeky sort of Kir base for a flirty fizzy cocktail.)
I’ve definitely fallen under the spell of the Conscious Chocolate Love Potion, it’s made with sensational essential rose oil and it’s divine density is like no other chocolate. It contains exotic silky coconut butter; in all of our good books at the moment. This is a treat to fall in love with.
Now forgive me for being a little saucy, but there are too many things to get excited about at Greenwich Pantry.
However, if this weekend you just want some time alone and to perhaps cosy up to nothing more than a good book, this Sweet Freedom Chocolate Shot Sauce will certainly satisfy. For other occasions this sauce is rather versatile; drizzled over ice cream, you can bake with it and apologies for the anti-climax. It’s sugar-free. But, Yay.
Whilst online pondering ways we can share our affections via the medium of food; I found the wonders of Welsh Love Spoons, ubiquitous Belgian Chocolates, copious French Champagnes and when I thought I’d seen it all; I recently gathered nothing quite expresses ones affection like sweet smelling… Bacon Roses. Yes, when a garage bunch, or an artisan floristry bouquet wont do.
(Surely I must be the last person with internet to learn of this? If not Google it.)
Next week, more vegetables I promise and for my vegetarian friends I’ll think of ways to get your pulses racing…
Lots of Love, Joyce x
