Fabulous Feasting

Taste the best of Christmas with Fortnum’s and Ladurée.

When it comes to the holiday season, the waiting is half the fun — whether that’s preparation of the perfect dining experience or the magic of an advent calendar.


What better way to anticipate than with the perfection of Ladurée’s Parisian patisserie? Sure to be the centrepiece of your table decorations, the brand’s advent calendar features glittery white décor adorned with a wide, powder-pink ribbon. Its festive wreath is a doorway to an interior composed entirely of pastries and jewel-like macarons — and of course the 24 boxes waiting to be opened. Each day you’ll find a gourmet delight to share: Eugénie, caramels, praline chocolates, nougats, jams… And best of all? The final box has its own special surprise. The only question is: will you be able to hold out?

November means its time to get ready. Planning your Christmas feast? Looking for the perfect gift for someone special? Set your destination for Fortnum’s, a place that’s right on your doorstep where Christmas Comes Alive. Expect nothing short of the extraordinary, from indulgent chocolate biscuits to seasonal tea blends, the finest bottles of bubbles, and hampers brimming with only the most delicious treats. And what’s more, once you’ve picked out your favourites, there’s no need to carry them all with you. The retailer’s dedicated team will ensure they’re all shipped to you, ready for all your seasonal celebrations ahead.

Afterwards, why not pick up a winter warmer from Tomoka Fine And Rare’s extensive library of luxury spirits. Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for a whisky aficionado or treating yourself to a bottle of the good stuff this season, the retailer’s expert staff will be able to guide you. Or head over to Oeno House to browse their selection of festive reds — and enjoy a a delicious mulled wine while you do so.
