Magazine Bible, Good Housekeeping votes Seriously Good Gourmet Cornish Hampers 'most indulgent one' for this Christmas

Padstow-based gourmet Cornish hamper company, Seriously Good, was stunned to be judged on a par with national supermarket chains Sainsbury's and Waitrose in Good Housekeeping magazine's December issue 'Christmas Gift Hamper Selections', scoring (along with Sainsbury's and Waitrose) 74 out of 100 for its 'Seriously Good Cornish Collection' hamper - one of only four hampers to be featured in the article.

Over 11 hampers were tested in all and Cornwall based Seriously Good, who specialise in gourmet Cornish food from small authentic producers, were thrilled that their hamper scored higher than Marks & Spencers, Merchant Gourmet and Duchy's hamper offerings.

Co-owner and founder Angie Dodd explains: "We are very fortunate to have superior quality products in Cornwall and it was this that must have captured the panel's imagination. We take our job of championing Cornish food to the nation very seriously, so we're pleased our hard work is starting to pay off with recognition from national brands."

The Seriously Good Cornish Collection Hamper includes Chough Bakery saffron loaf and scones, Barwick Farm organic butter and organic clotted cream, David's Patisserie fresh cream truffles and mulled apple juice from Cornish Orchards. The hamper is available to order at £40 plus £5.75 delivery by courier in chilled packaging. Seagrass tray and giftwrap is available for an additional £6.50 for the ideal Christmas foodie gift.

The Objective One Programme for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has invested in Taste of the West through the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund (EAGGF).

Anyone considering applying for EAGGF investment for a new horticulture, food and land based industries project is advised to speak with Maria Ford, at Government Office South West - 01752 635015 - before commencing development as there are now only limited funds available due to the successful uptake of investment by the agricultural sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
