    Tracey's Farmhouse Kitchen hampers gifts Easy Food

    Tracey Jeffery from Tracey’s Farmhouse Kitchen in Killinchy, Co. Down is well known for her cookery classes and food tours. With in-person events not currently possible, she has started two new ventures: teaching her cookery skills online, and creating gorgeous gift boxes.

     

    Cookery classes

    The online cookery classes are as close to the interaction you would get in Tracey’s own kitchen, delivered by Zoom in small groups, with the option of cooking along or watching to see how it is done.

    “These are all recipes I have made dozens of times over, so I know they work. They are also the ones my family and friends love. There are starters, mains, desserts and sweet treats as well as the odd boozy concoction like my sloe gin,” says Tracey.

    “I send the list of ingredients out a few days before, so you can get them in if you don’t have them and cook along. I also share the recordings so you can keep them to cook from again and again.”

     

    Gift boxes

    Following on from the success of her Christmas hampers, Tracey has also collated a range for gifting all year round, filled with her own products and those from other local artisan producers. The hampers are ideal for sending to friends and loved ones, or simply for treating yourself.

    “I wanted to offer a real taste of Co. Down to people across Ireland and the UK,” says Tracey. “It has been such a difficult time and we are not out of the woods yet. A gift of food and drink will really be appreciated by those you can’t be with in person.”
