A burgeoning gift basket showcasing some of the very best that Australia’s culinary houses have to offer. Each item in this gift basket is expertly hand-picked to ensure your recipient receives the ultimate gourmet experience – a taste of independent Australian creativity from coast to coast. And all items in this basket are certified gluten free, meaning that you can send this incredible package to a recipient with a gluten allergy with complete confidence. Let’s begin our journey in Australia’s cultural playground, Byron Bay. Home to exceedingly fertile soils and an “anything goes” lifestyle, Byron’s gourmet scene rubs shoulders with the best in the world. The Byron Bay Chocolate Company likens chocolate to a medicinal food – who’s to argue when pure Byron Bay cacao is infused with fresh ginger? Wallaby Foods specialises in organic, vegan and dairy-free snacks; their dark chocolate, orange, almond and coconut bites are a shining example. Brookfarm is one of the purveyors of local, Byron Bay-grown macadamia nuts. Their ‘Brothers Blend’ trail mix is unlike anything you’ve tried before. And we haven’t even left Byron yet – might that signify just how much we love the place? The Byron Bay Chilli Co proudly grows their own chillies in Byron fertile Hinterland soil. The results speak for themselves – their Salsa Picante is delightful as a dip or a base for a Mexican or pasta dish. Finally, Ozganics supplies a creamy avocado dressing that livens up every salad or sandwich. While this gift basket clearly speaks of a love affair with Byron Bay, it’s really about a love of pure, delicious gourmet. We’re supporters of local produce – as we’re local to Newcastle, we tried The Rocky Road House’s salted caramel crunch chocolate rocky-road at a local market and fell in love almost instantly. From across the land we’ve also found some of the best handmade cookies and locally-blended teas. All of this speaks to our innermost desire for instant gratification. However, if your recipient likes to fire up the oven, this gift basket offers something even better – Orgran‘s gluten-free chocolate brownie mix. There’s nothing better than the experience of a freshly baked brownie – it’s too good for pre-made. Thankfully, if your recipient doesn’t have the baking skills of Martha Stewart, the mix is incredibly easy to put together – or might be a great distraction for the kids for the afternoon. Bites of Australia is an anthology of Australia’s best. It’s presented lovingly in a massive willow wicker basket – bold and full of life. If you are looking to make an impression with some truly unique and creative foods – this is the hamper to get. All contents included in this hamper are certified Gluten Free by their manufacturers. Your recipient’s gift card is printed with a message that the gift is Gluten Free.
