The Sloane Street Gift Guide: The Epicurean

From expert party hosts to connoisseurs of cookery, these are the perfect gifts for the food lovers in your life

8 December 2021

Whether it’s for the gourmands in your life or something for the consummate hosts, an unusual gift that targets the taste buds or tablescape is sure to go down a treat.

For those who enjoy hosting cocktail parties, Armani/Casa’s cocktail kit is a suitably stylish gift, as is a beautifully-crafted notebook from Smythson, containing notes on entertaining by world-renowned events connoisseur Fiona Leahy.

Keen chefs will love the salt grater set from Soho Home Studio to help refine their cooking skills, while the ceramic plate set by Brunello Cucinelli is an elegant choice to elevate the presentation of their dishes.

There is no better time to indulge in fine food and drink than during the festive season, and to delight foodies with a sweet tooth, head to the Anya Café for adorably cute boxes of mince pies, iced buns and gingerbread men, which are ideal as stocking fillers. For those who prefer to feast on savoury snacks, the London Cheesemongers classic selection box will impress any cheese aficionado, and a bottle of English sparkling wine from Mother Vine will make a wonderful addition to any Christmas celebration. Cheers!
