Selfridges Selects: the best food & drink experiences

OK, so our Easter celebrations may be a little (read: a lot) different this year, but that's no reason not to treat yourself or a loved one to some delicious goodies (and remember: we can still deliver to doorsteps). From our palm oil-free Selfridges Selection range to a haul of Easter eggs to keep all little (and big) chocolate lovers happy, you’re in for some egg-cellent foodie fun (ahem!).

Easter treats, from us to you

We went the extra mile this year to create a line-up of extra-tasty (and 100% palm oil-free) Selfridges Selection treats to enjoy this Easter. From an adorable chocolate chick (complete with two praline-filled eggs) to hot cross bun-flavoured caramels (topped with a white chocolate cross, of course) and Belgian chocolate-dipped egg-shaped shortbread biscuits, there’s a whole lotta goodies to choose from. And the pièce de résistance? Our incredible hand-painted Easter Egg (pictured above). Made using sustainably sourced single-origin Colombian chocolate, sourced from Luker Chocolate (an estate in Colombia that invests in its farmers, communities, and has developed eco-friendly farming methods) and handcrafted and decorated by Chocolatier Gabriella Cugno in her kitchen in Cardiff, Wales – it highlights the importance of ending deforestation while looking pretty impressive, too.

Celebrate Easter, the Selfridges way

If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect gift this Easter, consider your search complete. Newby Tea’s exclusive (and limited-edition) gift set is not only easy on the eye, but it is full of all their favourite teas. And to go the extra mile? Exclusive to Selfridges, Perbellini’s (an Italian family-run bakery that has been making delicious Italian cakes for five generations) traditional Easter Colomba cakes are light, fluffy and absolutely heavenly – not to mention, a perfect accompaniment to your Newby tea. Try the classic and the apricot versions – yum.

Raise a glass

And when the kids have gone to bed? Shake up a pitcher of Margaritas using Clase Azul tequila, made using pure weber blue agave, lending it a woody and fruity aroma with undertones of vanilla and toffee caramel. What’s more, it’s housed in a ceramic decanter that has been hand-painted by local Mexican artists who are supported by the brand’s art charity ‘Fundación Con Causa Azul’, and makes for the perfect vase or candlestick holder when it’s empty. ¡Ay, caramba!

Fill your baskets: Easter eggs

Looking for a new twist on the classic milk chocolate Easter egg? Cox&Co doesn’t just have the tastiest alternative flavour combinations (bee pollen and honey or coconut and chia, anyone?), but it also sources its chocolate sustainably and ethically. And the cherry on top? It’s all wrapped up in compostable packaging. Or what about Tony’s Chocolonely: its Easter selection includes a lemon meringue chocolate bar and Easter egg selection box, perfect for anyone who loves great-tasting ethical chocolate. And for some vegan treats? Cocoba’s vegan Easter egg is guaranteed to raise a smile on Easter morning, and it’s made from the highest-quality cocoa beans too.

With every day seemingly merging into the next right now, I’m hoping to make the Easter break feel a bit more special for my two children. From a mini Easter egg hunt in the house to crafting our own Easter bunnies, this year is all about finding inventive ways to have fun. Having said that, just getting through the day without driving each other crazy is a cause for celebration in itself!
