Top Five Gourmet Foodie Gifts Made in British Columbia


Featuring BC’s first handmade, small-batch chocolate salami

Langley’s Well Seasoned Gourmet Food Store welcomes the season of gift giving with their top five gourmet gifts that are great for entertaining, as a stocking stuffer or for the person that has everything.

1) Chocolate Salami-$14.00 (Available in-store or online; Ships Canada-wide)

Angie Quaale, food expert and BBQ champion, has done it again by bringing a customary European treat to British Columbia food lovers. The missing flavour from your holiday platter has arrived with BC’s first handmade, small-batch chocolate salami.

A classic and popular Italian and Portuguese dessert, this chocolate salami takes the appearance of a cylindrical salami but is meatless and filled with holiday flavours including the richness of chocolate with the nuttiness of almonds and pistachios combined with hints of sweet tanginess from orange rind and dried cherries.

Slice and serve on its own as an after dinner dessert platter or alongside a cup of freshly brewed coffee or hot chocolate. It makes a simple yet festive and edible centrepiece set to leave guests complimenting your stylish taste.

2) Well Seasoned Bacon Jam-$5.99 (Available in-store or online)

We know, we had you with “bacon”. Handmade by chef Mari using the local Johnston’s Thick Cut Double Smoked Bacon, this sweet and savoury, bacon jam is versatile in every dish. It makes a tasty addition to your cheese and charcuterie platters or spread on a burger, or mix into a bowl of mac ‘n’ cheese.

3) Slice N’ Bake Cookies-$9.99 (Available in-store)

It’s as easy as thaw, slice and bake. These cookies are without mess and perfect for the time-starved party host. From Coconut Lime Pistachio Shortbread to Cranberry Ginger Shortbread or Savoury Cheese & Chive Shortbread, these cookies are approved for your holiday cookie exchange, with seven flavours to choose from.

4) Speciality Pies in a Glass Plate-$9.99 to $21.99 (Available in-store or online)

Pies, pies, pies! Get your pies at Well Seasoned this holiday season. Whether you’re a sweet or savoury tooth, chef Sue Wiebe has used some of her favourite and best ingredients to create an assortment of pies for holiday entertaining and gifting. Best of all, all pies come in a reusable glass pie plate so you can slide it right into the oven and make it as home-made as possible.

5) Reindeer Poop Meringues-$6.99 (Available in-store)

Reindeer leave “droppings” that are magical: filled with sweet, good luck. Well Seasoned has collected some of the North Pole’s most special Reindeer Poop to create these edible and fun Reindeer Poop Meringues for the holiday season.
