The Forest Foodie, run by Flora & Amy from Lymington, launched in the summer of 2020. We supply and deliver Hampers & Picnics, and Welcome Packages for holiday lets packed with fresh, locally sourced produce to locals, yachts and holiday makers around Lymington and The New Forest.
Our fresh hampers which range from traditional picnics/afternoon tea with homemade sarnies, sausage rolls, scones with clotted cream and local jam to local cheese, charcuterie and New Forest wine. For seafood lovers we've just launched a catch of the day delivery option which is accompanied with local wine, salad, lemon caper butter and more. Our 'Solent' Hamper is our signature - featuring lobster, fillet of beef, crevettes and Hampshire sparkling wine. We have smaller hampers perfect for two people also and are happy to put together something more bespoke where possible.
At The Forest Foodie, we aspire to work as sustainably and responsibly as we possibly can, by supporting a local farmer, grower, baker, cheesemaker or craftsman. You’re also helping with the circular economy within the New Forest to make it a better, cleaner, more eco-friendly place.
In a 'normal world' we also offer a private cooks service, where Flora & Amy can come to your home or holiday cottage to cook for you, for both holiday makers and locals. We can cook up a storm for brekkie, to fuel you for the day ahead on the water or in the forest, an alfresco lunch or an evening dinner party or low key kitchen supper. All our menus are bespoke depending on what you're after.
During lockdown, we are offering special deliveries of a 3 course dinner - the menu changes each week, but includes food such as Chicken Liver Parfait, with Port Jelly, Cornichons, Tartiflette with Local Charcuterie and Salad, followed by Lemon & Passionfruit Posset with New Forest Shortbread.
Please note, we will also be continuing to offer all of our fresh Hampers during lockdown, available for delivery all over the Forest.
You're welcome to see what other people say about us here - and we hope to hear from you.

* Open for orders 7 days a week. We ask for 24 hours notice where possible - but we'll be as flexible as possible where we can. Fish deliveries on a Monday are difficult due to the nature of not fishing on a Sunday. Everything is bought, prepared and made fresh to order hence needing a little time to put it all together for you!
