Michelin-starred Tommy Banks and team bring Oldstead to your doorstep this festive season
October 2023: This festive period will see the return of Made In Oldstead’s delivery boxes for the fourth year in a row. Carefully curated by Tommy Banks and his team,
the range of premium boxes and hampers are available for delivery nationwide throughout December. The boxes bring a taste of Oldstead to your doorstep,
presenting some of the produce and culinary techniques for which Tommy and team are renowned at his Michelin-starred Yorkshire-based restaurants, The Black
Swan and Roots.
Every dish has been meticulously curated to elevate your dining experience at home. Just as they do at the restaurants in North Yorkshire, ingredients from the farm
and surrounding land take centre stage. Heritage carrots and red cabbage arrive straight from the farm as Christmas Day sides, for example, while locally foraged
Meadowsweet makes up a Strawberry Jam in the Festive Hamper alongside Coppa and Smoked Salami from the Oldstead farm’s pigs. All menus are paired with wines
from Tommy’s brother James’ fine wine in a can business, Banks Brothers. There are options aplenty for meat-eaters, pescetarians and vegetarians alike,
ensuring there is something for everyone over the festive season. Christmas Day boxes must be ordered by 19th December at 5pm, for delivery on 22nd December,
while the cut-off date for ordering New Year’s Eve boxes is 27th December at 12pm for delivery on 29th December.
