Host a gourmet dinner at home with help from Forman and Field

London, August 2010: Planning a dinner to impress? If watching Come Dine with Me has put you off whipping up a gourmet meal for a while, fear not. Forman and Field’s impressive range of fine foods will rescue any dinner party, if planned in advance. All you need is an internet connection and an appetite for the good things in life.

F&F’s fine food mail order service specialises in gourmet meals as well as a luscious spread of cured meats, smoked fish, cheeses and pâtisserie delights. A kaleidoscope of choices takes you through an enviable selection of fine British foods – from hams to the salmon, mustards, jams, tarts and biscuits included in their hampers. If you’re planning a dinner party, you could start off with tartare shots, a set of canapés of citrus salmon, beetroot gravadlax and Thai crab, supplied ready to serve in reuseable shot glasses. For the more adventurous, there is a full suckling pig – its crispy skin covering soft, tender, melt-in-your-mouth pork. The dish is delivered ready for the oven, easy to cook, and size specific, depending on the requirements of your dinner party. For marine delights, smoked eel fillets served with potato salad and rocket and lashings of F&F’s Moniack Castle Horseradish Sauce come heavily recommended by The Independent Magazine.

F&F’s fine food selection also comes with a fully stocked pâtisserie. Talented chefs have devised a number of menus and dishes, and all benefit from the signature Forman and Field eye for quality and presentation. Whether it’s a simple dish of brandied cherries or a gâteau from Michael Nadell – chocolate sponge infused with rum syrup, layered with walnut cream and topped with a thick layer of chocolate ganache – F&F’s attention to detail makes each an absolute delight.

Champagne, truffles and all things fine – whether you’ve been naughty or nice, you can plan your Christmas hampers in advance thanks to Forman and Field’s hamper range. Award-winning smoked salmon, hot homemade pies, sinfully delicious chocolates, topped off with a delectable pudding with custard – just a taste of the fare F&F promises. Or, how about a wicker basket spilling over with duck terrine, cheeses, compotes, chutneys, truffles and chocolate biscuits? F&F specialises in a cornucopia of gourmet delights, all of which you can book in advance for home delivery.
