From top quality English wine to restaurant quality curries delivered to your door, here’s what the GBF team have been enjoying this month…

Sublime's Chimichurri Butter

We don’t need any encouragement to eat more butter but the clever folk at Sublime have managed to make our favourite toast topper even more indulgent with their decadent flavoured butters. Inspired by and named after the Sublime Society of Beefsteak - an eccentric 18th Century London gentlemen’s club - Sublime is a fab range of flavoured butters created to complement the quality produce found in independent delis & butchers - especially steak! Varieties include Truffle, Parmesan & Black Pepper and Chimichurri; delicious in mash or melted on top of steaks.

Stopham Vineyard and Winery is situated in the beautiful village of Stopham next to the River Arun, within the South Downs National Park in West Sussex. This month the vineyard is selling a case of its exquisite still white wines for £79.95 instead of £90. The box includes 6 bottles: two bottles of Pinot Gris 2018, two bottles of Bacchus 2018 and two bottles of Pinot Blanc 2018.

Spicebox's Family Curry Night Boxes

In order to adapt under lockdown, London curry house Spicebox pivoted to selling their stunning curries nationwide, including a range of fantastic Family Curry Night Boxes. Available in two varieties (Korma and Tikka Masala), these veg-packed curries are vegan but no less indulgent. The boxes generously feed a family of 4-6 people and inside you’ll find everything you need to make a creamy and fragrant curry, along with all the extras that make a curry night so special, including Samosas, homemade chutneys, toasted cashews and the most gloriously tasty tarka dhal.

We tried the Korma box and were blow away by the freshness and quality of ingredients - especially the naan, which tasted fresh from the takeaway, despite having traveled from Walthamstow to Essex! Inside you’ll also find a step by step recipe card, or you can view recipe videos here.

Available for delivery on Thursdays and Fridays to addresses across England.

Healthier Curries from Chef Akila

Chef Akila make some of the most delicious ready-made curries we’ve ever tasted - a world apart from anything​ you’d find at the supermarket. The team at this multi-award winning Yorkshire-based startup specialise in clean curries that are handmade, freshly frozen and delivered to homes around the UK. The business was founded by a 75-year-old grandmother from India (Akila) and her son, who is a NHS consultant doctor, and the meals have been developed alongside doctors and nutritionists to ensure they’re as healthy as possible.

Aside from being much lighter than anything you’d get from a takeaway or supermarket, the dishes are wonderfully indulgent and generously portioned, with incredible layering of flavour. Favourites for us include the silky and rich Paneer Butter Masala, the meltingly tender Desi Goat Curry and the flavour-packed Royal Lamb Biryani.

The founders of East London ice cream makers Hackney Gelato toured Italy to learn how to make perfect gelato from the masters of the craft, and the results are utterly irresistible: feather light, creamy and packed with flavour. Try our favourite flavour: Chocolate Cornflake - crunchy clusters of chocolate-coated cornflakes in a malty gelato. £5.49 per tub, available nationwide via Ocado
