Foodie gifts for Valentine's Day

Vhari Russell and Cat New, from Grub Club Cambridge, share some ideas for delicious gifts this Valentine’s Day 

Afternoon Tea 

Take a trip back in time at the Carriages tea room in Fen Drayton. They have a wonderful array of tasty treats to be enjoyed in the old railway carriages. Afternoon tea is priced at £21.50 per person.

Cheese Course 

If your partner is a cheese fiend, the answer is the Academy of Cheese level one course. This is the WSET course for cheese and involves learning all about how cheese is
made, getting to grips with different families of cheeses and tasting over 25 fabulous fromages to expand your knowledge and palate (£195 per person).

Craft Gin Club box 

A gift that keeps on giving: Craft Gin Club costs £40 per month, which gets you a gin-y goodie box featuring wonderful gins, plus mixers and other foodie treats.  

Seed and Bean Hamper

The Ultimate Collection hamper features 26 bars of chocolate (£75). Delicious! 

Chocolate Kisses 

The Geographer in Histon has all kinds of lovely foodie gifts, including these bags of baci di dama: Italian chocolate and hazlenut biscuits (£5.75). 


A lovely gift to give to a tea lover. Nauteas has a range of flavours, including Elephant Chai and Pina Colada. £6.99 for 18 bags.

Wine Tasting at the Old Bridge Hotel 

For the wine lover in your life, the Old Bridge Hotel is a must-visit. It boasts a wonderful array of wine and is owned and run by one of the leading Masters of Wine in the world. You can do a help-yourself tasting of a range of fine wines from as little as £12. It works equally well for enthusiasts and novices alike. 

Fitzbillies Macarons 

Delicious and light, these colourful confections are a wonderful gift to receive at any time.

They retail at £7.80 for a box of six and are available from both Fitzbillies branches.
