The Full House Serving Suggestions

You now have the pleasure of the Full House Hamper from Crowley’s of Suffolk, our best luxury hamper.

We do everything to ensure that the fresh produce in the hamper reaches you in perfect condition and have chosen the contents carefully to be enjoyed together. We aim to include only the best of anything and everything is there for a reason.

The foie gras is a fresh, whole lobe. It can be served at room temperature, thinly sliced on a biscotte, with a pinch of Fleur de Sel and, the Pear & Lemon of Plum and Walnut jams. It can also be pan fried straight from the fridge in a smoking hot pan with no fat or oil. It cooks in a matter of seconds and easy to overcook! Serve as above. Whichever way, it should be washed down with a chilled glass of the Muscat Beaumes de Venise, the perfect taste combination.

The Suffolk Ham is the cornerstone of the hamper and is superb. It has been cured in Earl Soham beer for three weeks, smoked, skinned, covered in brown sugar and molasses and flash roasted, which makes the fat divine. It should be served at room temperature, with any of the jams, chutney or the Dijon Mustard. Please slice what you need and return it to the fridge in order for it to keep the longest without spoiling. In the vacuum pack, it will last over three weeks unopened.

The Fromage de Tete and Rillettes de Canard are delicacies from Northern France. Both should be served t on a biscotte with a pinch of Fleur de Sel, sliced Cornichon and a pinch of white pepper. Please note that the Rillettes is best served at room temperature, and the Fromage de Tete slightly chilled.

The Smoked Duck Breast should be sliced as thinly as possible and once again, served at room temperature.

The Side of Smoked Salmon is lightly smoked, Scottish Atlantic salmon. It is best served slightly chilled with small piles of finely chopped shallot, baby capers and sour cream.

The three cheeses are regarded as the best of their kind. The Driftwood and Somerset Solstice should be served on a biscotte with a small amount of the Raw Honey and a pinch of Black Truffle Salt or either of the jams or the chutney. The Twanger works well plain or with the honey, jams and the chutney.

The Saucisson Sec should be sliced as thinly as possible and served with a single drop of Truffle Oil on each slice for a taste explosion, a perfect canape before a meal.

The Turron au Cointreau is a delicacy from Spain. It should be served cold and thinly sliced. It is sweet and is ideal at the end of a meal , along with the Chocolate Orange Peel.

Lastly, the Dark Chocolate Tequila, a well-kept secret from Mexico. This should be kept in the freezer at all times and upright, if possible, once opened to avoid leakage. The alcohol content ensures that it pours easily and should be served as a shot.
