The Trivet Gift Guide

We may be edging through January at time of reading (and recovered from the festive season), but we urge you not to forget about Vouchers, Club membership or Courses when it comes to gifting friends, family and loved-ones with Winter birthdays and events… For any questions on availability, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us directly at


Best wishes – and happy shopping! – from the Trivet team

Whether December brings you pure Christmas joy or some long-suffering festive PTSD, we urge you to embrace this mad month in your own style.

With so much to do, the temptation for many is to rush through this time of year. At Trivet, although we are swinging joyfully into festive events, we would like to offer a gentle and affectionate reminder to slow down. Enjoy the tastes and feelings of the season, and don’t forget to treat yourself along the way (at least to well-deserved glass of wine). With this in mind, let us offer a helping hand with gifting and entertainment this season: welcome to the December Trivet Gift Guide!


For those who are unfamiliar, the Trivet Tasting Club is a friendly and informal club, offering exceptional “taste” experiences for anyone interested in food and drink. We utilise the combined passions of Isa Bal, Jonny Lake and the Trivet Team to create fun, surprising and delightfully memorable tasting experiences, incorporating the three legs of Trivet: Kitchen, Cellar and Bar. Members also receive wine shop and dining discounts, as well as opportunities to sneak into industry and private events hosted at Trivet throughout the year.

Wondering what to cook on one of the many entertaining (or ‘lounging with loved-ones’) days this season? We may have the answer…

Every December, Head Chef Jonny Lake likes to share a taste of home in the form of the traditional Canadian tourtière: a savoury meat pie finding its origins in the Quebecois réveillon Christmas Eve and New Years Eve celebrations. We adore participating in this tradition in the most festive month, enabling you to bake this delicious dish at home, to be shared with friends, family, flatmates, loved ones or just your excellent self.

Tourtières cost £40/pie and you’ll be able to pre-order your pie for pick-up at Trivet (between 10am and 10pm) on the following dates:

Friday 8th and Saturday 9th December – NOW UNAVAILABLE

Friday 15th and Saturday 16th December – NOW UNAVAILABLE


As well as the traditional tourtière, our online shop has much to offer to help with entertaining. This of course includes our newly-released Festive Mixed Case of wine, featuring a range of our favourites, including a classic Grand Cru Champagne, some unusual (and very ‘Trivet’) reds and whites and a sweet wine to share and enjoy. If you’re fond of the finer details of the Trivet experience, you can also purchase our hand soaps and moisturisers, as well as our perfectly-formed white vases and water jugs; more gift ideas for the house-proud!

Don’t forget that Tasting Club members receive a 15% discount on the Trivet Shop – please get in contact if you have any questions.


The pressure to buy presents and to think of exciting new gifts at this time of year can be intense, and – whilst a well-chosen scarf, some eclectic jewellery or the dreaded fancy sock collection may be appreciated by some – a ticket or voucher for an incredible experience is also a very, very good option. Trivet gift vouchers can be used in-house for restaurant, terrace and wine bar bookings, and can be purchased using the below link. You can even arrange for the voucher to be posted directly to the gift-recipient, for all of those friends and family who are impossible to lock in for a get-together this season…


Next year, our friends at Académie du Vin Library will be hosting a 3-week wine appreciation course, focussing on understanding, collecting and (most importantly) enjoying wines from ‘Burgundy, Bordeaux and Beyond’. This will be a Saturday afternoon course, lead by Allison Burton-Parker dipWSET, and will be taking over the Mustard Room at Trivet on the 13th January, the 20th January and the 3rd February, with some incredible wines to be tasted and discussed!
