Patagonian "White Gold" Toothfish from Qwehli
No idea what the Patagonians eat for the festive season, but if Christmas is about eating something special, then they should all be eating Qwehli’s toothfish! Despite their name, these succulent fish are actually caught off the French Kerguelen Islands and their meltingly soft texture, pearly white flesh and buttery almond flavour are sure to be a hit with everyone wanting a change from turkey.

The nearly 4 years spent coming to the peak of perfection make these oysters truly exceptional and fit for only the most discerning palates.

Terre Exotique brings you this 100% natural salt, free of additives or preservatives. Harvested for more than a century from evaporation ponds on the Pacific coast of North America, it gets its name from the Salish Indian practice of smoking over red alder branches…
