Celebrating local artisans through gourmet experiences in Daylesford

Gourmet food & drinks, made by locals

At Daylesford Gourmet, we believe that gourmet food and drinks are best enjoyed in the region they were made, so we make it easy for you to sample all the locally-made goodies our region has to offer during your stay.

Our purpose is to support and promote local, small-batch makers of fine food and drinks, by providing you with a range of gourmet experiences which can only be experienced when you visit the Daylesford region.

From DIY grazing with a gourmet box by the fire at your local accommodation, to indulging in a colourful regional grazing board with your best foodie friends to celebrate your Daylesford minibreak, pairing a picnic with a wine-tasting at a local vineyard, to spoiling your sweetheart with a secret lakeside picnic, Daylesford Gourmet is all about making your shared gourmet experiences local, unique and memorable.

Daylesford Gourmet Reviews

We were thrilled with the picnic box that greeted us when we opened the fridge in our cottage. Sal had made all the substitutes we requested, and every item in the box was delicious. Not only did our box give us a taste of what’s available in the area in the way of gourmet foods, it also gave us suggestions for picnic spots around Daylesford. Thanks Sal, we’ll be recommending you.

PRUE, June 2022 - Regional Sampler Box

Not just any picnic! We ordered a box of picnic goodies during our stay near Daylesford last weekend. You could tell that each item had been carefully considered and the whole box artfully curated. It was the best picnic we’ve ever had!

It was so good! You’ve created such a wonderful business, well done. I can’t wait for our guests to experience it [at Honeysuckle Farm] too! x

Thank you so much for helping me organise and make this the smoothest planning ever! Chloe and I had the most magical night thanks to your beautiful setup. Can’t thank you enough Sal!

NATHAN, Mar 2022 - Picnic Proposal

Amazing! Visiting from Melbourne, it was difficult to plan a proposal while on a weekend away. Sal was incredible bringing my plan to life – providing everything from a hamper full of delicious local produce, to the beautiful picnic pillows and rug. Her attention to detail and fast response times made the entire experience with Daylesford Picnic Boxes an absolute breeze. Can’t recommend Sal enough. Thank you!

The picnic was amazing! So delicious, so perfect, so thoughtful all the little touches. We loved everything about it! I especially loved the pamphlet (love a good pamphlet!), the beautiful napkins and the brilliant tote with awesome long handles which I will use daily here now.

Sal, your picnic box is exquisite!!!! Honestly there is so much care in every single aspect, you have thought of absolutely everything and it was like Christmas uncovering everything that was in there! LET ME CONFIRM THAT EVERYTHING IS DELICIOUS. AND as a bonus it speaks to all of my local, sustainable food values, and that’s one of the things I find hard when I’m travelling as it takes a while to uncover who is doing the real deal, but here you are just doing it for me!!! It’s such a perfect offering, such an incredible standard. You are very, very clever indeed.

Incredible customer service and value for money. Carefully selected and delicious food. The box is incredible, it blew us away. We’re so excited to add cutlery, tote, and napkins to our picnic bag. The box and all that accompanies it was the highlight of the long weekend.

The picnic basket. The delicious basket! I didn’t have a set idea of what to expect so I had a moment of “is this the tardis?” Because there was so much in there! The quality of food was amazing, all the components worked well together, and it felt like we had just treated ourselves to the BEST and most intimate foodie escape. The absolute icing on the cake was the sustainable extras, the napkins (crazy cute!) And wooden cutlery! Is was so so so good.
