Patchwork Traditional Food Company Review

The Patchwork Traditional Food Company started making pâté in North Wales over 25 years ago.   With a start up cost of just £9.00, saved from the housekeeping, Margaret Carter began selling her home made pâtés to pubs,attracting more and more customers and the business successfully started to expand she moved the business from her house in 1987 to a purpose-equipped factory in the heart of Ruthin.

Since the start of the company the range has expanded to include chutneys, ice creams and ready meals. 

They now offer a gorgeous range of homemade fine food, making it the ideal, unique Christmas gift. 

I for one am gutted as I spent a luxury weekend at Ruthin Castle it was the coldest weekend of that year and we holed up and were pampered for the two days, never venturing beyond the castle walls.

If I'd known the taste of the paté alone, I would have braved the ice and stocked up.
Luckily for me Patchwork Traditional Food Co have sent me a small hamper to try out.

The presentation is just gorgeous and you can even request your own choice of products to be included so it will be a unique gift filled with a recipients favourite flavours. I for one would love this, so often a hamper has items that do not really appeal.

I love the paté in jars it keeps well if you are not like us and polish off the entire amount in one sitting. 

At Christmas the jar is important, my fridge is normally heaving and these sit nicely in the door.
Spelt  and Oat fingers  make a nice change to plain crackers and complement the pate well. The chutney is made for a cold salad of hams and salad. Chris loved these and they disappeared rapidly.

I am looking to buy some of these for Christmas, for family as they make a tasty and personal gift.

There is something for every budget take a look.

They also have a sumptuous range of gifts from the chutneys and pates to bespoke hand designed Patchwork Converse All Stars, which can be found here:
