Looking to make your Christmas gift extra special? Combine a few of our fantastic gifts into a San Telmo Group gift box. It’s the perfect gift this festive season.

Gift Vouchers

Gift vouchers are the perfect present for someone who enjoys dining out. Nail Christmas gift giving duty and present your friend or loved one with a little piece of Argentina.

$18 for a pack of 6

Our homemade alfajores are Argentina’s equivalent to Australia’s Yo-Yo biscuit. There’s a reason this simple cookie defines the cafe scene in Buenos Aires and has entire cafes devoted to it all across Latin America. It’s maybe the best cookie that ever was. Dulce de leche, or caramel, is sandwiched between 2 biscuits, dusted with grated coconut. It is one of those things you try once and develop an instant addiction.

Made by slowly simmering milk and sugar for 5 hours, this sweet, sultry dessert condiment can be spread on pancakes, mixed into a custard or just eaten out of the jar.

Housemade Chimichurri

The condiment of kings. A simple blend of parsley, chilli, oregano and garlic to slather over your steaks, chorizo or just about anything you like.
