Spice up your meal schedule or send a thoughtful gift with these delicious gourmet food hampers. Choose from fresh produce, ready-to-eat meals, desserts, cheeses and more from your favourite cafés, restaurants and retailers across Melbourne. They’ll make cooking a breeze and afternoon tea a delight, all while supporting our local producers.
Picking up a gourmet treat from Spring Street Grocer has long been one of Melbourne’s favourite pastimes, so why not keep it up during lockdown? Right now they’re packing up hampers like the ‘Fridge & Pantry Rescue Box”, which contains truffle pecorino, Zeally Bay sourdough, St. David’s cultured butter, bone broth and prosciutto, or the ‘Mangia Mangia’ box which covers everything you need for a show stopping Italian dinner, including a tiramisu to share.
Let CBD deli chain Earl Canteen sort lunch for the week with moreish and nutritious meal packs. Classic, vegetarian and gluten-free boxes come stocked with fresh bread, eggs, salads, hummus, cheese, grilled veggies, meats and falafel so you can make epic WFH sandwiches and spreads without the hassle. Each pack also comes with a ready-to-bake cookie dough log so you can enjoy a warm treat with your tea.
We love strolling the aisles of King and Godfree, impulse-purchasing imported Italian goodies before picking up an espresso for the journey home. But did you know that they’ve also got a virtual deli with great gift hampers for friends and family? The ‘Pasta Nights’ box contains everything you need to make a restaurant-quality spaghetti at home (including a giant wedge of their best Ambrosi Grana Padano), while antipasti sets and boxes brimming with Italian sweet treats will level up your snacking selection.
Celebrate date night at home with San Telmo’s convenient and delicious dinner boxes. Your tastebuds will be taken to Argentina via crispy empanadas, spicy chorizo and morcilla sausage, premium rib eye steak, charcoal roasted cauliflower and dulce de leche flan for dessert. The box arrives with easy instructions for cooking, heating and plating so dinner prep is stress free, and you can add on ready-to-serve caipirinhas and packs of alfajores to enjoy the next day for afternoon tea.
Make wine-and-cheese o'clock extra special with a gourmet hamper from Brunswick fromagerie Harper & Blohm. They’ve got a selection for every category of curd-lover, but you can’t go wrong with the “Weekend At Home'' gift box. It’s got all the bells and whistles, arriving with ready-to-bake French Vacherin Le Duc, creamy goat chèvre and nibbly Comté accompanied by City Larder pâté, cornichons, housemade lavosh and olives.
Brunswick café Theodore’s has set up Ted’s Grocer, a one-stop shop for everything you need to stay fed and watered at home. Assemble a chest of fresh produce, bread, milk, eggs and Supreme coffee in both bean and cold brew form, then add on your choice of housemade pickles, seasonings, bottles of pét-nat, crumpets, and even a 1L mimosa for the weekend.
Missing your favourite restaurants and producers? Head to Co/Lab Pantry, an online food retailer bringing together deli and pantry goods from Melbourne’s top venues. Build your own decadent hamper from a range that includes Brunetti’s classic biscotti, Chotto Motto’s addictive chilli crisp, Entrecôte’s famous secret herb butter sauce, Cannoleria’s crowd pleasing cannoli, Babajan’s smooth hummus, Wonderbao’s fluffy buns and much more. Co/Lab also retails fresh produce, meat, dairy and heat-and-eat meals so you can do your week’s worth of shopping in one go.
Order feel good hampers from STREAT, a social enterprise café that trains disadvantaged youth and offers them invaluable career opportunities. Start the day with a breakfast essential pack stocked with house blend coffee, granola and sourdough, or pick up a healthy picnic hamper to enjoy in your nearest park. Each hamper comes with mini sausage or veg rolls, quiches, dips and crudités, arancini, potato salad, Mt Zero olives, popcorn and even plates and cutlery so no washing up.
Babajan’s colourful Middle Eastern dishes have been delighting regulars for years, and now you can recreate their magic at home. Their festive feast hamper contains a range of gourmet goodies that will spice up mealtime, from housemade dukkah and pickled vegetables to pastirma (seasoned Turkish cured beef). They’re also selling a DIY Aleppo toastie pack, which includes everything you need to make their spicy signature eggplant sandwich, with the option of add-on lamb shoulder for a seriously delectable brunch.
