Buyers guide to... Foodies



At Eden, we don’t just enjoy our food; we’re a little bit obsessed with it. If you’ve seen the mouth-wateringly perfect cakes in our bakery, you’ll know that we crave perfection. That’s why we’ve put together luxury food hampers, Cornish food gift sets and artisan picnics for the wine and food connoisseurs in your life.

Truffle tree

Growing truffles is easier than you may think. We have oak or hazel trees inoculated with rare British truffle spores. These trees aren't fussy - they're versatile and thrive in most soils. You can enjoy the beauty of the trees, happy in the knowledge that it's growing a gastronomic delight underneath! These truffle trees make the perfect gift for people who appreciate good food. After four years of becoming established, the British truffle tree will carry on truffling for up to 25 years, giving you a fantastic return over the years.

Grow your own Shiitake mushrooms

A great unusual gift for food lovers and those who like to ‘grow their own,’ this shitake mushroom log is the present for the person who has everything. They're fun to grow as you can see them change every day. The inoculated Cornish log produces rich and smoky shiitake mushrooms and comes with full care instructions to grow mushrooms at home. Not only does this save the lucky recipient buying expensive supermarket mushrooms, it also means that they taste deliciously fresh.

Olive Tree Gift Bag

Looking for that gift that’s a bit different? Look no further; our olive tree gift bag is great for anyone that wants to add a bit of Mediterranean essence to his or her household. We have plenty of Olive trees growing in our Mediterranean Biome, now you can have one of your own. The Olive gift set includes an Olive plant and a packet of succulent olives marinated in fresh mint, lemon & coriander. If you live on the South coast you can keep your tree outside during summertime and bring it back in for winter. The Olive tree comes in one of our own reusable Eden Jute bags, with three different designs to choose from.
