Christmas at Cuculo…
With our usual combination of events and full shelves, we look forward to welcoming you this Christmas. Here is a run-down of the ways in which Cuculo can make your Christmas extra-special.
Perennially popular are our roast hams. We select a choice gammon which we cook overnight in our specialist, unventilated ham oven: this retains the juices and flavour within the joint. In the morning we roast the ham with our special glaze. It’s moist, delicious and, at £1.95 per100g, fantastic value. For whole joints (6-8kg) £15 per kg.
Build your Christmas cellar with our eagerly-anticipated Big Christmas Tasting on the afternoon of Sunday 8 December. This annual extravaganza is the perfect event for wine and food lovers, with 30 bottles open, from budget wines to premium spirits, and a delicious buffet from our cheese counters, cured meat cabinet and kitchens. Tickets are £30 and can be booked by calling us on 01435 862596 or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our friendly and knowledgeable staff look forward to your visit. Our famous cheese counters are filled with 200 types of top quality cheeses, with all the local varieties and a top quality selection from Britain and Europe. Order your piece of Cinzia’s legendary truffled brie in advance: £5 per 100g.
Cakes & Chocolates
This year Panettone will be at the forefront of our choice of specialist cakes: these Italian delicacies, leavened three times for lightness, usually contain raisins and candied peel, and some are topped with a sugar glaze with almonds. Check our website to see the full selection. cuculo.co.uk.
Hampers & Gift Boxes
As always our little elves will be packing and wrapping furiously in the store room, stopping only for brandy. A Cuculo gift box is a unique joy, full of the very best food and drink, which you can choose or let us select for you. We can include a fabulous array of beautifully-packaged goods from the shelves – as well, of course, as cheeses and wine.
As usual chocolates take a front seat. Explore Cuculo’s exquisite selection of French and Belgian truffles, Italian gifts and local specialities.
