DEVON-based clothbound cheddar-maker Quicke’s, based near Crediton, has launched two food parcels with a difference – Joy Boxes, Devon-sent selections of award-winning food and drink, providing everything needed for a memorable meal in the garden or that long-awaited picnic in the park.
Designed to spread some much-needed joy, whether sent as gifts, enjoyed al fresco with the family or used to cater a Zoom picnic party, the two packs are a celebration of life’s simple pleasures.
The Deliciously Delicate selection comes with a bottle of Sharpham Sparkling Blanc to get the party started, from the Totnes-based winemaker, 200g wedges of Quicke’s Goat’s Milk Clothbound Cheese, Devonshire Red and the mixed-milk Lady Prue, The Fine Cheese Co’s Fig, Honey and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Crackers, Hillside Celery Pickle and Devon Flower Honey.
The Mighty & Moreish box has Quicke’s Vintage Clothbound Cheddar, Extra Mature Clothbound Cheddar and Oak Smoked Clothbound Cheddar paired with Sandford Orchards’ Devon Red and Devon Mist ciders, a Good Game’s Charcuterie Selection pack, made with free range pork from local producers, Hillside Piccalilli and The Fine Cheese Co’s Chilli and Extra Virgin Olive Oil Crackers.
The boxes are an opportunity to support some of Devon’s fine artisan producers, as the lockdown continues to take its toll on many independent food and drink makers. Quicke’s is also holding weekly cheese tutorials and cooking demos live on Instagram every Friday night at 7pm, giving friends even more opportunity to come together and connect from their kitchens.
