With Christmas now firmly in our sights, one of our favourite entrepreneurs has been busy making a list, checking it twice, and sourcing a beautiful array of produce to guarantee a full festive table throughout the season. Chris Chapman, founder of Warehouse (formerly weekl.ie), has put together a handy ‘Click and Collect’ Christmas list focused on delicious and brilliant Irish produce, catering for those all-important yule-tide celebrations.
His efforts have resulted in a fresh fruit and veg selection featuring an abundance of seasonal delights such as leafy Clementines, Blood Oranges, Chestnuts, Fresh Cranberries, Irish Brussel Sprouts on the Stalk, and specialty Irish Potatoes from Maria Flynn’s Ballymakenny Farm. Meat lovers are also well catered for, with Bronze Free-Range Turkeys from Ballybryan Farm, Champagne Ham from Salters of Cavan and 30 Day Aged Beef prepared exclusively by McLoughlin’s Butchers.
Chapman has also sourced a deliciously fresh haul from premium fishmonger Glenmar Shell Fish, featuring traditional favs such as Irish Smoked Salmon, Dublin Bay Prawns, Lobster and Irish Unpasteurised Brown Crab Meat. There’s also a nice selection of Irish Cheese Boxes prepared by La Rousse Foods, packed with classics including Durrus Soft Cheese, Hegarty’s Cheddar, and Cais Na Tir Sheep’s Cheese. Additional treats and goodies include Dublin Cocktail Lab‘s Mulled Wine Mix, Artisanal Selection Boxes from Cocoa Atelier, Hasset’s Luxury Biscuit Boxes, and hand painted Chocolate Santas.
Chapman tells us that getting your hands on this festive treasure trove couldn’t be easier – simply book a day to collect on Christmas week, order your Christmas essentials and collect on the day of your choice – 22nd, 23rd or 24th of December. The deadline for initial orders is November 30th, with final changes accepted up to December 13th.
