Christmas Perfect Pairings | #5-8

In celebration of the importance of togetherness, this Christmas Fortnum's has assembled a collection of delicious pairings from across our famous Food Halls.

From classic duos that have stood the test of Christmases past to all-new (and sometimes a little unusual) combinations destined to become favourites of Christmases yet-to-come, read on to discover numbers 5-8 of our delicious festive double acts.

#5 Christmas Tea & Marrons Glacé

The festively fragrant notes of zesty clementine, festive spices and cocoa nibs in our Christmas Tea and our deliciously sweet, individually-wrapped Marrons Glacé - a traditional 16th-century French speciality of chestnuts candied in a syrup and then dried - are a Christmas match made at Fortnum's. One bite, a solitary sip, and you'll be hooked.

#6 Champagne & Golden Oscietra Caviar

Some partnerships succeed against the odds, others are so well-matched it's hard to imagine one without the other - like our Blanc de Noirs Champagne NV and our Golden Oscietra Caviar.

A hand-graded, deep gold and deliciously nutty treat for any true caviar connoisseurs, it pairs perfectly with any Fortnum's Champagne - but particularly with the honey, spice and dark fruit notes of our Blanc de Noirs Champagne. Delicious.

#7 Christmas Coffee & Chocolate Liqueurs

Forget a nightcap liqueur coffee - the finest way to round off a full day of feasting is with a cup of our bold Christmas Coffee and a box - to share or snaffle solo - of our exceptional Christmas Chocolate Liqueurs. Try for yourself this Christmas, but be warned: they are very tipsy chocolates indeed.


#8 Stilton & Glacé Apricots

You can never have too much glacé fruit at Christmas and our eighth pairing of the festive season matches the best of British with France's finest - the sugar-steeped sweetness of our Glacé Apricots making the perfect counterpoint to our full-bodied Fortnum's Stilton. Unusual, memorable and oh-so-delicious. Give it a try this Christmas.
