Pressie tips from the Foodie Gift Hunter

The Foodie Gift Hunter is Vale of Belvoir-based Helen Tarver, who blogs almost daily about great gifts for food lovers right here.

She recommends:

1) Allergy-busting cakes from Gower Cottage Brownies

2) Spice kits from Leicester’s very own Spicentice

3) Chater Valley of Rutland’s Rent-A-Porker scheme (a fantastic idea where you rent a pig, have someone look after it for you, and then, er, eat it)

Gower Cottage Brownies are perfect for gluten-intolerant cake-fans

Chater Valley’s Rent-A-Porker scheme includes Mangalitza pigs, like these

All manner of spice kits, from Indian to Moroccan to Portuguese, are available from Spicentice
