Ginger Pig Christmases are won not only on the dinner table, but also underneath the Christmas tree. We all dread Christmas shopping, so here to make things easier is our gift ideas for everyone, including brand new products alongside the traditional and well-loved favourites.
For the aspiring cooks:
*NEW* Aprons – As you would expect from us, this is a high quality and durable 100 per cent cotton apron for home butchery and cooking, designed for maximum comfort. The apron features a discreet embroidered Ginger Pig logo in gold thread in the top right hand corner of the apron, and will be available in a charcoal shade similar to the Ginger Pig’s signature apron worn by staff. Deliberately made in a longer length than standard aprons with an adjustable neck strap to fit all heights, you are fully protected from splashes and stains, and for convenience there is a large pocket. It will come beautifully packaged as a ready to go gift, and will be available in all shops in time for Christmas, priced at £45 each.
*NEW* Knives – A selection of butchery and kitchen knives hand-picked from Forschner’s Fibrox and the beautifully crafted Victorinox Rosewood Collection are available from our Askew Rd shop. Knives are priced from £19.99 to £65.99 for an essential boning knife to a 31cm chef’s knife. A great present when paired with a butchery class for those wanting to improve their knife skills, or simply on their own for enthusiastic home cooks.
Butchery Classes – The original knife skills class; students receive a hands-on 3.5 hour lesson including a two-course meal with wine and their handiwork – joint or sausages – to take home. We offer pork, beef, lamb, game, poultry and sausage classes. A great evening for those wanting to know more about their meat. Butchery Class vouchers are available to purchase online, priced at £155 per person.
Books – The original tome The Meat Book gives a good grounding in meat, a tour of all the cuts and what to look and ask for when buying produce, all set within a year on Grange Farm. The Farmhouse Cook Book takes a more holistic look at rural life, and is ideal for anyone wanting to grab a slice of the good life at home. It contains several curing projects as well as plenty of bottling and chutney making.
Available in all shops at £16.50 each and online at £21.95 each including postage (RRP £25).
Preserves & Pickles – A classic present and a real crowd pleaser. We’ve got an impressive range of preserves, chutneys and jellies, all of which are made at Grange Farm, so there will always be something suitable. All you need to do is pop them in pretty bag et voila! Selected preserves and pickles sold in all shops, prices from £3.50 per jar.
Gift vouchers – All of the meaty love, no chance of getting it wrong. Available in denominations of £10 and redeemable at any of Ginger Pig’s seven London shops. Available in most stores, or to buy online.
