FARMER CHRISTMAS: LOCAL GIFTS

This year, we have our own range of hampers and gift boxes. We've tried to make them resonate with our values. The hamper boxes are stylish, but are made from a high proportion of recycled board with plant-derived PLA compostible film windows. The packing material is our own used potato sacks, which we've shredded. Many of the gift boxes combine healthy fresh organic fruit with more indulgent treats. So if you're looking for a gift which looks great, is healthy and doesn't create too much impact on the environment, then have a look at what we've put together.

As last year, we're also stocking a range of really lovely things from people who already have a strong connection to Cambridge Organic. So we have jams and Chrismtas decorations from the Propects Trust, who've supplied us with organic produce from their charity farm for many years; we have more jams and preserves from long-standing veg-box member, Heather Sturman's Fen End range; we've more of the popular cookbook from one of Cambridge Organic's best friends, Rosie Sykes; and the new Cambridgeshire Cookbook, featuring a recipe and feature about our good selves.

The Sunday Night Book by Rosie Sykes

Local chef and food writer, Rosie Sykes is one of Cambridge Organic's best friends. When she was head chef at Fitzbillies, she would produce a new menu each week, based around what we had on offer. Since then, she pops in regularly to collect produce for whatever she's working on.

Her new book offers 52 short recipes to extend the weekend. Whether you need comfort or inspiration on a Sunday night, you'll find the perfect recipe here.

Reviews:

'Rosie is one of the great cooks of our time so humble, brilliant ideas, wonderful cooking and writing you want to read over and over again... Rosie cooks the food you want to eat all the time - unpretentious and delicious' --Angela Hartnett

'I couldn't be happier with the recipes suggested by The Sunday Night Book. Ideas for delicious food for the weekend often pop up through the week and these often get altered on a Sunday night; having seen the book, Rosie can alter my food any time!' --Fergus Henderson

'Rosie Sykes is a proper cook who cooks proper food with flair and skill. These recipes are all achievable but, more than that, very desirable even on nights other than Sunday. Excellent.' --Shaun Hill
