Skeppshult is a Swedish forge, who has been making cast iron kitchenware since 1906. These thoroughly modern spice grinders are a fantastic way to create signature spice blends for curries, or to grind black pepper fresh at the table before you eat. The heavy duty grinders will dispatch hard spices such as cloves, allspice and coriander seeds with total ease.
A great gift for any dad who loves to present food with a little drama at the table! Beautiful pink Himalayan salt can be heated (slowly) or cooled to extreme temperatures – so you can either sear seafood at the table, or serve balls of salted caramel ice-cream. The salt block will season your food, and can even cure it in front of your eyes. It's great for sashimi fish.
Let your Dad take his lunch game to the next level with a jar of Pommery wholegrain mustard. Well-balanced with a rich, nutty flavour, it's the perfect partner for a grilled cheese sandwich - get spreading!
Once you try this salt you'll want to sprinkle it on every dish you make! It's particularly good on grilled meat, fish and vegetables – so a great gift for any dad who loves to barbecue. Smoky, slightly sweet and deeply savoury, this salt is a real secret weapon in the kitchen that takes ordinary recipes to another level. It's great with a Bloody Mary cocktail, too.
A gift for every dad who loves to bake – this baguette-shaped banneton is ideal for creating beautiful long loaves at home. The ridges mark the dough with concentric ridges, which helps add even more crunch to the crust.
