Chef and restaurateur Sally Clarke’s hamper deliveries are the perfect treat
If there are any ‘silver linings’ to the horrors of the past year, the way restaurants have bravely adapted to the new normal deserves some congratulations. Clarke’s is one of those restaurants; now in its 35th year, it has opened its second shop in Notting Hill (on the corner of Portobello Road and Westbourne Grove) as well as entering the world of online retail.
Over the past few months, Clarke’s has spent time growing and improving their range of Bakery, Shop and Production Kitchen products, and these are now readily available for next-day delivery to customers 7 days a week, using the speedy and sustainable ecofleet delivery bicycles.
Clarke’s has also been able to continue cooking and serving from its wonderful Restaurant Kitchen, despite the numerous lockdowns of the past few months. Every day, from Tuesday to Saturday, they deliver a weekly changing selection of menus. Dishes are sourced, cooked and prepared by a talented team of chefs to provide their diners with a little taste of Clarke’s at home.
Clarke’s is well known for its luxurious Christmas, Thanksgiving and Valentine Hampers, assembled from homemade jams and marmalade, wines, biscuits, chocolates and other goodies from the Bakery and Production Kitchen.
They have now created a range of beautiful hampers available for delivery all year round, all at the click of a mouse. They include Sally Clarke Classics and most loved items — from sweet to savoury and from modest to extravagant — with everything packed in either elegant wicker baskets or smart craft boxes finished with beautiful ribbons and tissue paper.
4 of the best luxury hamper deliveries
All of Clarke’s tried, tested and loved favourites from the last 35 years are in this luxury hamper. Whether it’s the famous dark chocolate truffles (hand rolled, hand dipped, since 1984), homemade granola (perfect with plain yoghurt and fresh or poached fruits) or Seville Orange marmalade, Sally and her customers could not recommend them highly enough.
Cheeses and Charcuterie Hamper
Cheeses from the team at Neal’s Yard Dairy have featured on the Clarke’s Restaurant menus and in their shops for over 30 years, and these form the basis of this wonderfully generous hamper. They are perfectly matched by wafer-thin oatmeal biscuits, a selection of artisan cured meats and beautiful wines chosen by Clarke’s own Sommelier.
The Kensington Hamper
Inside this hamper is everything that makes Sally Clarke’s special, including a pot of the Exmoor caviar which is served in the restaurant, a hand-picked selection of very special wines, many of the Sally Clarke classics and much more. The most generous of all our hampers, this is the perfect way to say ‘Thank you’.
Kitchen Essentials Hamper
Sally feels that every kitchen cupboard should be given space for the ‘essentials’: olive oil, spiced cashew nuts, sea salt and of course a copy of 30 Ingredients, the book which was published in celebration of Clarke’s Restaurant’s 30th anniversary (Sally will happily inscribe it for you!). This hamper is the perfect gift for anyone with a new home, a new baby perhaps, or just someone who loves being in the kitchen!
Whether its freshly baked croissants, a pot of fabulous marmalade, a bottle of Sally Clarke own label wine, a gift hamper or a three course menu from the Restaurant kitchen, each one of their deliveries is helping to keep a little flame of Clarke’s alight at home.
