Plant-Based Cheese & Saucy Set

This plant-based hamper features some of the best plant-based cheese we've ever tried (and it's super healthy too, made from a mix of cashew and macadamia nuts) a nutty peanut Salsa from Saucy and gluten-free Rosemary and Olive Oil Flatbreads from Breakin Bread-which are perfect for dipping or layering cheese. That's the food side sorted, but this gift box also comes with a non-alcoholic aperitif, Botivo to sip it down with.

This jam-packed includes everything from flaky sage, onion, and apricot sausage rolls, delicious charcuterie board, a Moorish garlic, thyme, and rosemary organic camembert, and even your own baked rosemary focaccia with olive oil to serve alongside it. Is there room for dessert? That's no problem as it also includes white chocolate soft-bake cookies and brownies.
