Win Black Dog Deli selection

Black Dog Deli giveaway on

I’m very happy to be offering you the chance to win a bevvy of gourmet products from the Black Dog Delicatessen via FoodHQ. With four Great Taste Awards under their belt, the specialist food importers source top notch oils, vinegars, pastas and olives from Italy, Greece and Spain.

The packaging is pretty luxe but it’s not astronomically pricey so it’s a great range if you’re looking for Christmas present inspiration for the foodies in your life.

Rescue labs Bailey and Blue

And the bit I find most pleasing of all, the dogs featured on packaging are rescue dogs Bailey and Blue who belong to FoodHQ’s James Tyler. a percentage of the profits from the range goes straight to the Labrador Rescue Trust. We’ve got a bit of a soft spot for rescue dogs in the Feeding Boys household :-)

I’m hoping to review a selection from the range in the coming weeks, but in the meantime why not enter my giveaway and see if you can bag some for yourself!


Selection of the Black Dog Deli products worth £34.14

  • Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Risotto Mixes
  • 2 Pastas
  • 2 Olives
