Gourmet Gossip – December 2022

The Ivy Norwich Brasserie

Celebrate the festive season at The Ivy Norwich Brasserie, where the brasserie will be serving an array of joyful treats, including a limited-edition festive cocktail menu created in collaboration with Monkey 47, delicious á la carte dishes, afternoon tea and lavish set menus designed for larger parties. 

To finish, guests will be able to delight in a limited-edition Santa’s On His Way (£9.95) dessert, perfect for those with a sweet tooth. Featuring a red velvet sponge, cream cheese frosting and dark chocolate, this exclusive, playful dish is sure to be a firm Instagram favorite this Christmas.

Lindsey Clifton, General Manager of The Ivy Norwich Brasserie says “We are delighted to be adding these festive additions to our menu and look forward to welcoming guests into the brasserie at this most wonderful time of the year.”




Often, the simplest ideas are the best. Take Edmunds, for example. Their original concept was to expertly combine the finest spirits, juices, syrups and aromatics into truly exceptional cocktails that recreate a bar-quality experience without the fuss or access to dozens of specialist liqueurs.

The ethical, family-run business supplies cocktails direct to customers via a well-stocked web shop, as well as to prestigious bars and restaurants in Suffolk and beyond. With a great selection of cocktails available there is something for everyone; crowd pleasers like the ever-popular Pornstar Martini, Old Fashioned and the Espresso Martini. The fabulous flavours of their Kumquat Margarita or the Lychee Martini, are soon to be firm favourites at a festive gathering.

The cocktails are hand-blended, bottled and labelled with skill and care. They supply everything you need to produce a world-class cocktail in your own home… all you need is a glass, ice and maybe the odd splash of soda water. So for the perfect party with a show-stopping selection of cocktails, all you need is Edmunds.


John Hutton Butchers

This well known shop in Earl Soham, Suffolk, is a must visit, selling exceptional produce sourced from local farmers.

Although meat is the core part of their business, they
also keep an extensive deli counter with a selection of over 40 English and Continental cheeses.
