Last lockdown we mastered new arts, new recipes, and new hobbies, but this lockdown? We're here to relax. One of the best forms of self-care we can think of is a magnificently curated charcuterie board to graze on in the summer sun.
While grazing boards are so much fun to put together, they can be a little daunting considering the number of ingredients and preparation a board can take.
Sometimes a homemade board just doesn't live up to the quality boards you can get at your favourite deli or restaurant, which is where The Cazador Deli comes in. Their speciality hampers are now available for delivery and click + collect!
If you know anything about Cazador, it's that they know their grazing essentials, from charcuterie and cheeses to bread, dips, crackers, and sweet elements to add dimension.
Collecting ingredients from their local suppliers, Cazador takes every segment of their deli menu very seriously to create the most luxurious hamper for you to dig into.
Their hampers currently come in three different sizes, ranging from perfect for 2 people to a grand dining experience for several people.
Each one has exciting components unique to each size, but think venison salami, duck parfait, babaganoush, marinated mixed olives, red onion marmalade, Waikato goat gouda, Sardinian flatbread, preserved figs, Little River camembert, cold-pressed extra virgin olive oil, dark chocolate mousse, heritage pork coppa, and the list goes on.
When it comes to assembling your platter, practice makes perfect. It's all about having fun and getting creative in how you want to present each ingredient, remember there's no right or wrong when it comes to a grazing board.
Pair your hamper with your favourite NZ wine to complement the amazing array of locally sourced ingredients and you'll instantly feel like a professional charcuterie chef.
To get your hands on one of Cazador Deli's hampers, head to their online store here, and have a browse through the options and complete ingredient list.
Opt for delivery if you're a little further away from the Mt Eden spot, or head in for click + collect and grab one of their fresh coffees and pastries for your trip home! All contactless of course.
