Fine Dining Gourmet Hampers & Christmas Capons

Online grocery home delivery just got a bit more special with fine dining and gourmet hamper supplier Le Marché Des Chefs’ Christmas produce. Imagine serving a juicy capon instead of the usual turkey, now that would get your household bubble squawking.

If you’ve never eaten a capon, the flavour can best be described as an incredibly deep creamy chicken, with a slightly mild gamey taste. These capons spend their lives outside, in a maize field in Gers, South West France enjoying a life far removed from intensive farming. They’re carefully fattened on maize and milk, which means the dry Christmas bird is a thing of the past.

With a specialty in sourcing artisanal products from small suppliers in the UK and France, LMDC has been able to offer restaurants – and now consumers – the very best and sometimes, hard to find quality ingredients.

With restaurants being forced to shut, LMDC took the first Lockdown as an opportunity to start supplying its produce straight to London consumers’ doors. They would normally supply over 20 Michelin starred restaurants with over 30 stars between them such as Ducasse at the Dorchester, HIDE, Hélène Darroze, The Ritz, Rules, Portland and Sabor.

With four hampers on offer – Gourmet Hamper, Mini Gourmet Hamper, Pescatarian Hamper and Vegetarian Hamper – the produce changes weekly, depending what is at its absolute best seasonally. Seasonal foods range from Ceps and fresh Dorset clams to red kale or Himalayan salt aged beef.  You can also build your own hamper or offer as a gift.

The Gourmet Hamper £70 for delivery within the M25

Each hamper includes a full list of the ingredients, with a brief description of the product and the best way to prepare it.  Plus, a recipe from Michelin starred chef Ollie Dabbous of HIDE, based on one or more of the ingredients in each hamper.

Prices from £35 for the vegetarian hamper, £50 for the pescatarian hamper and £70 for the gourmet hamper.

Orders close weekly on the Tuesday at midday and free delivery is on the Thursday or Friday, anywhere within the M25.

With Christmas fast approaching, LMDC will also be stocking festive food items from turkeys and capons, black Winter truffle, smoked salmon and Whitstable rock oysters, truffled Baron Bigod cheese and everything gorgeous in between. The farmhouse 4kg capon is £85 for delivery in December. Take a look at the Christmas range here.

Delight and amaze your limited number of guests.
