Elle tries the GBC subscription box
GBC’s May subscription box
Unlike many other food deliveries, the wonderful thing about a charcuterie hamper is that it can chill in the fridge until you are ready to tuck in. The GBC hamper was so versatile! We got creative with our hamper and decided to have it as a dinner alongside homemade asparagus mimosa, Italian tomato salad, and herby Mediterranean orzo.
There was a marvellous combination of contrasting textures and colour within the selection box to really magnify the enjoyment of our delivery. Each product brought a truly unique flavour to the table, with no single item tasting mediocre.
Here were our favourites from this month’s hamper:
- ‘Little Sussex’; A medium fat, mild soft cheese with a fluffy texture from ewe’s milk. This can be served as it is or served griddled with a fresh Summer salad.
- ‘Westcombe Cheddar’; The only firm cheese of this month’s board, but it had a far more complex flavour. With almost caramelly, as well as nutty flavour, this cheese lingered for much longer than your plasticy supermarket bought cheddar!
- ‘Calcot Fennel Salami’; This was undoubtedly my favourite meat of the selection and I can understand why it is a best seller. This is sliced thick and contains herby, aniseed flavour notes.
- ‘Mushroom and truffle salami’; A rich and indulgent salami made with free-range Sussex pork, wild mushrooms and truffles; this Sussex-based producer isn’t shy in ensuring the truffle’s flavour pops!
- Burt’s Blue Cheese, Organic Cotswold Herb Brie, Beal’s Farm Bresaola. ’Hellfire Sticks’ (not too dissimilar from a posh Peperami!).
There are many more options to get your luxury fix during lockdown. Partake in one of GBC’s Virtual Tasting Session’s hosted by the masters of the trade, and learn more about the award-winning products delivered to your door! Can’t celebrate a friends birthday?

Meat that is reared and cured in the UK
Over the last decade the need to preserve meat is being realised to be important again in the UK by farmers and producers. This has meant we are lucky enough to have a wonderful selection in Britain of charcuterie meats. All of the charcuterie sold is produced using free range meat and the suppliers have strict animal welfare standards. From Highland Wagyu to the large range of salamis and a great selection of pates and chutneys to accompany.
With over 40 unique, mouth-watering products such as Air-Dried Hams, Beautiful Bresaolas, Salamis & N’duja and many more that are all produced here in the UK. All of the charcuterie can be purchased as whole muscles or pre sliced and there’s the option to buy their popular bespoke charcuterie packs.
