Hamper for a Camper from Natoora

Natoora by you.

I recently  got offered  a hamper from Natoora .  Hampers sometimes bring up thoughts of tinned spam and Quality Street,  but this is another league offering delicious Continental and English seasonal food, meat cheese , wine and fresh vegetables boxes,  with 24hr delivery anywhere in the UK,  its like Borough Market online

I am a total UI ( User interface) freak  , and this site is a real pleasure to use , details on each item include proper provenance,  clear pictures and  suitable accompaniments including wine  . Everything arrived perfectly packed with freezer blocks, each item wrapped in greaseproof paper with neat labels. The hamper arrived just in time for a camping trip.

I chose a range of cheeses, meat and vegetables . Although we get some lovely English cheese round here it’s pretty hard to find anything continental other than Brie . I even printed out some notes about each cheese from the website. Each cheese was a decent size ,not just tasting amount and at a good level of ripeness

Camping Cheese by you.

(clockwise from top left)

  • Langres a french cows milk cheese was deliciously oozing with background of smoked bacon
  • Morbier semi-soft French cows’ milk cheese named with a layer of ash in the middle and a nutty aftertaste.
  • Banon a northern Provence goats milk cheese wrapped in chestnut leaves and tired with raffia and straw. This helps to preserves the cheese which has a fruity and woody flavour

Nduja Calabra by you.P1020999 by you.

For dinner on the campsite I cooked a pasta sauce using Nduja Calabra a soft spanish salami the  flavour is at first quite sweet, then explodes with the full force of chilli pepper.

500g of tinned tomatoes

  3. Serve with freshly cooked pasta

Chicken Livers and Prunes Wrapped In bacon by you.

Another great liver BBQ recipe this time using chicken livers and  prosciutto. from the hamper I have borrowed this recipe from from the Two Fat Ladies. Sweet, salty deliciousness especially with a dash of balsamic vinegar.

Chicken Livers and Prunes wrapped in Prosciutto

6 chicken livers cut in half
12 slices of prosciutto
12 prunes

  1. Simply wrap a prune and half a raw chicken liver in a slice of prosciutto
  2. BBQ or grill for just a few minutes on each side

I suspect some of my foodie freinds will be receiving gifts from Natoora over the next few months and they are offering free delivery right now ,so it’s a good time to try some new foods.
