How to Enjoy

We’ve prepared some guidance on how best to enjoy your Crowley’s of Suffolk hamper. Find your hamper below and discover the wonderful combination and magic of flavour…

The Premium Provisions’ Box Serving Suggestions

You now have the pleasure of the Premium Provisions’ Box from Crowley’s of Suffolk, our best luxury box.

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 and everything is included for a reason.

Refrigeration

The Dry-Cured, Streaky and Rinded Back Bacon are perfect for a breakfast of bacon sandwiches. The Collar Bacon Lardons are great for pasta Carbonara or as an addition to salads, peas, Brussels sprouts and broad beans.

The Slipper Ham is from a muscle similar to a fillet and therefore makes for a very tender ham.

The Pork Pie is entirely hand-made by an artisan supplier in Lincolnshire. As with all items in the Box, it is chilled down before packing and, in this case, should be refrigerated and consumed within four days of receipt. The crust, white jelly and meat are stunning. It goes well with the jams but particularly well with the Quince & Chilli Jelly.

The Rolled Longman’s Salted Butter is award-winning and superior to any other butter.

The Smoked Duck Breast is also lightly smoked and roasted to remain pink. It is ready to serve and best sliced thinly on a bed of leaves and sliced golden kiwi fruit.

Cool Storage

The cheeses are regarded among the best of their kind. The Tunworth and Isle of Wight Blue should be served on either of the crackers and go well with any of the jams or preserves, all of which are homemade in Thorpeness.

The Quail Eggs provide a delicate flavour alternative to hen’s eggs. They are best immersed in cold water with a touch of vinegar, brought to the boil and simmered for four minutes. They should then be plunged into cold water and peeled before serving, ideally with a celery salt dip.

Long Life

The Rye & Charcoal Peter’s Yard Crackers are award-winning and make a great accompaniment to the cheeses.

The Honey is from a small family producer and is not blended. It is outstanding and goes very well indeed with the cheeses.

The Garlic Tapenade is a delicacy made locally in Suffolk, from organic garlic, fennel and shallots seasoned and finished in first cold press extra virgin olive oil. It makes the perfect dip.

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.

Cool Storage

The two cheeses are regarded as the best of their kind. The Isle of Wight Blue should be served on a biscotte with a pinch of the Black Truffle Salt or either of the jams or the chutney. The Tunworth works well plain or with the honey, jams and the chutney.

Long Life

The Black Truffle Oil and Truffle Salt are from Italy and add a subtle and unique flavour to many hot dishes and salads.

The jams and Quince & Chilli Jelly are all home made in Thorpeness. They are unique in texture and flavour and make an excellent accompaniment to the ham and cheeses.

The Honey is from a small Suffolk beekeeper. The production is minimal and is not blended with honey from any third party. It is stunning.

The Rye & Charcoal Peter’s Yard Crackers are award-winning and make a great accompaniment to the cheeses.

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.

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 or 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.

These are from Blythburgh free-range pigs. It is slower grown than other pork and as a result has a unique texture and marbling. The process involves a light smoke, poaching in cider and black treacle, resting in the liquor for a specific number of days, after which it is skinned, coarse demerara sugar is rubbed into the fat by hand and then it is flash roasted to produce the perfect glaze.

The Pork Rillettes are from France and amazing on French bread with a sliced cornichon, a pinch Sel Gris de Guérande and white pepper (the latter is essential).

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.
