Keen Cooks’ Pantry

A fabulous cookery gift with a Cornish twist: for kitchen cooks who like to experiment and do things differently.


Central to this wonderful pantry collection is the small pot of exotic and perfectly formed Cornish Saffron from the Roseland Peninsula. The stigmas in this pot of gold are grown, handpicked, plucked and dried on the family farm – a true labour of love, but the resulting intense flavour simply can’t be beaten. A tiny pinch goes a very long way.

You’ll also find not one but two pots from the range of signature Cornish Sea Salt. Renowned for its mellow coastal undertones, one comes spiced with four peppers, ready for pinching, the other is seasoned with wild seaweed for an umami hit, rubbed, stirred or sprinkled.

The small-batch Hot Chorrito Sauce delivers on fire and flavour. Its vibrant colour comes from the blend of fresh oranges with red hot Cornish-grown habaneros and Chorrito’s own coffee infused vinegar. Enjoy the bittersweet earthy flavour and mouth-watering long burn of the sauce in a magical harissa, or in dressings and marinades.

Fowey Valley’s Vintage Cider Vinegar is made from vintage Fowey Valley cider and aged for no less than three years. Unpasteurised, unfiltered and with no additives, this is a keen cook’s must-have – a splash will lift a multitude of dishes, hot or cold, savoury and even sweet.

Finally, the sensational Smoked Liquid Chorizo Oil from Hardpressed Cornwall – a classic, cold-pressed, multi-seed cooking oil that’s gently infused with paprika, garlic, and spices and then traditionally smoked over sustainably sourced wood to create a wonderfully realistic chorizo flavour (without the meat). Dip, drizzle and cook!
