Gail’s Christmas Pantry

We know there are many of you who may feel it’s too early for the C-word, but on The A-List we always like to tell you about things just as they launch, which is why we’re putting Gail’s Christmas Pantry on your radar. From November 1, they’re offering a series of Christmas Survival Kits, which are probably intended as gifts but would be just as lovely in your own pantry. First there’s To Keep You Going, a hamper which caused pandemonium when it landed in VF’s London office: made up of a two-kilogram French Dark Sourdough sharing loaf in a linen bag, two jams (fig, walnut and rum, and clementine and cranberry), two spreads (almond butter and speculoos biscuit butter), Gail’s House Blend coffee, a La Parfait glass of granola and a box of delicious mince pies, this is the can’t-go-wrong hostess gift of the season. There’s also To Bake Your Own Bread and To Brew Your Own Coffee, along with the bakery’s many seasonal favourites.
