Festive Foodies!

For this post I’m focussing on gift ideas for the food lovers – and c’mon who hasn’t got at least one foodie (or would be) amongst your family and friends!

Tasmania is renowned for its fantastic food and wine and here are just a few of my favourite local suggestions:

The award winning The fudge A’Fare (see the previous A Sweet A’Fare story) have a great range of tempting gift packs just perfect for Christmas stockings, hampers and the like. Follow the link to their website and download a copy of their order form (hopefully attached here too) or, if you live in Tasmania, get on down to the Salamanca Market and find their stall.

Pop into Sweet Envy at North Hobart for their Christmas pudding, shortbread, or any other wicked treat your heart desires…

Wicked Cheese – my favs are their soft and ripe brie or the smoked cheddar.

Coaldale Walnuts Coaldale Walnuts – natural, pickled or try their sweet and spiced mix walnuts too.

Vintage Sugar are making all sorts of delectable festive treats for you to purchase at either the Bream Creek market or you can find their stall at the Bellerive Farmgate Market being held on the 21st December.

Boutique Wine Tours Tasmania – get a group of fellow wine buffs together and head on out for a day trip tasting Tassie wines, they will even take you out to MONA for a bit of gallery exploration if you are so inclined!

Agrarian Kitchen Cookbook recipes from this prestigious cooking school located in the Lachlan Valley about 40 mins from Hobart. RRP Price $60. Or one of their cooking classes ranging from 350-990pp.


Tasmania’s Table – a great book showcasing the best of Tassies food and wine. Part recipe book, part Tassie Tourism, either way you’ll fall in love with the food, places and people.

And finally a selection of foody finds from my Etsy searches:

‘Food-aholics Festive Fun!’

Something for the foodies in the family at Christmas! (or anytime of the year!)
