Abel & Cole

Christmas produce from the best suppliers, where each item is best in class.

Inspired by Rachel de Thample's guest edit, who is Head of Food at Abel & Cole, we decided to find out what's on offer at the organic food company. Many will know Abel & Cole from its weekly delivery of vegetable boxes to homes in and around London. They were one of the first companies to do this and gave rise to many copy cats. Over the decades, the company has continued to up its game, delivering organic produce to thousands of homes every week. Boxes can be tailored to suit customers' exact needs from ethically sourced meat, bread, milk, vegetables and more.


The thought of Christmas sends many into shopping withdrawal, battling through the crowds to buy an organic turkey, queueing to get a piece of Stilton, scrambling for the last box of clementines. We recommend you take a moment to look at how Abel & Cole approaches Christmas, asides from keeping your sanity intact. We have and it is a tempting thought to let them take the strain. You can order everything in one go, the turkey, the trimmings, Christmas pud, delicious mince pies with pastry that melts in the mouth (tried and tested on more than one occasion), the fruit, the cheese (we recommend Godminster Vintage Cheddar and a mild goat's cheese, Santa Gadea), wine, beer and soft drinks. It's all been accounted for.

You can rest easy as Abel & Cole has done its homework, choosing produce from only the best suppliers, where each item is best in class standard.


Once you've placed your order, sit back and start to think about cooking Christmas lunch. The recipes will help you find your way.
