Christmas hampers with Cornish fare

Garden of Eden Christmas hamperA business selling top quality hampers packed full of Cornish produce is taking orders for its special Christmas range.

Garden of Eden, based at Treskilling, near Luxulyan, was launched in November by Christine Bainbridge and Sally Heard, who were supported by Objective One investment from both Taste of the West and actnow.

They supply specialty hampers full of delicious Cornish produce via their website – – and brochures.

Two hampers have been specially put together for Christmas and are under the seasonal hampers section on the website.

Christine said: "All our hampers would be wonderful to give or receive at Christmas. However, we have designed two specifically with Christmas in mind. These are the St Just Hamper and the St Ives Hamper. We believe these are the perfect gift for Christmas or New Year, without the hassle. We can deliver throughout the UK and include a personal message."

The St Just hamper, costing £40, includes a bottle of Polmassick Kea Plum Dessert Wine, a luxury Christmas pudding and Trenance Chocolates. The St Ives hamper, costing £65, contains a bottle of Camel Valley Brut 'Cornwall', Menallack Farm cheese, Newlyn Olives with orange, thyme, coriander and garlic, Trenance Chocolates, a luxury Christmas pudding and oaten biscuits.

Other hampers are also available priced from £25 to £320.

"You can also make one of our other hampers more festive by including a luxury home made Christmas pudding. We can include a Christmas pudding in any hamper at an additional cost of £15 for a 900g pudding. We have also had a limited batch of wonderful quince jelly made and packaged in kilner jars and again could offer this as an extra item in any hamper at a cost of £5," continued Christine.

"Last date for orders is Tuesday 21st December, however we recommend that you place your order as soon as possible."
