Treat your friends and family to slices of gin-marinated Scottish smoked salmon or crumbly Isle of Mull cheddar cheese on a handmade oatcake with hot pepper jelly. Or gingerbread infused honey in a specially curated Edinburgh Food Hamper by food walking tour owner Nell Nelson. Nell is also co-owner of The Original Edinburgh Mead Company who regularly come to The Winchester Christmas Market to sell hot mead, mulled Caledonian wine, spiced local cider and cranberry punch in their distinctive red and white Celtic mugs.
Nell Nelson, owner of Edinburgh Food Safari (www.edinburghfoodsafari.com) has built up a successful food walking tour business of Edinburgh’s New Town and Stockbridge combining fantastic local foods with local history. Celebrating the business’ fifth birthday this year, Nell’s food safari is a combination of fantastic local foods and history, where visitors and locals are taken off the beaten path to delightful small shops, bars and restaurants through The New Town and Stockbridge.
Nell comments. “I still want to share some of the fantastic local food I have literally on my doorstep, so I have enjoyed using my local knowledge and experience in curating wonderful local foods for a range of boxes, I can send nationwide”. Nell includes a ‘welcome letter’ in each box explaining her personal choices and combinations and a You tube link of some of the food sourced on her food tour https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IEWsqkV2T14
The ‘hampers’ come in three different versions ranging from Edinburgh The Best at £77, Edinburgh The Savoury and Sweet at £49 respectively. All come in a silver and gold box with tartan ribbon which can be sent with a personalised note in a stout, chilled cardboard box with free mainland UK delivery.
Sadly Nell can’t get to Winchester this year and its also probably hard for you to get to Edinburgh, so why not enjoy a taste of Edinburgh without risking the chilling wind and slippery cobbles and tuck into some of the best of Edinburgh suppliers with an Edinburgh Food Safari in a Box?
