FRESH WASABI GIFT BOX

ALL ORDERS ARE PACKED AND SENT IN OUR GIFT BOX. SIMPLY PURCHASE THE ITEMS YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD TO THE BOX AND WE WILL DO THE REST. 

All of our gift packs will come without our branding to avoid spoiling a surprise. Invoices are emailed and not included in the box.

The box will be sealed in a plastic sleeve to keep it clean for using as a gift box.

Full instructions are included in the box to allow you to open it, store any fresh produce and then re-box when you are ready to give your gift (see detail below).

Fresh wasabi will last two weeks in the fridge if the instructions inside the box are followed.

The boxes are marked "open & refrigerate".

 

Express UK delivery is FREE on all orders over £50 (Mainland UK only, excludes Highlands & Islands)

 

 Instructions included in the box to re-pack fresh items:

If you have purchased a wasabi rhizome, please remove the muslin, rinse the rhizome in cold water, dry with a cloth and place it in the fridge, in the plastic bag, without sealing the bag.

If you have purchased a plant, please remove from the protective cardboard layer and bag and keep somewhere cool, which is draught and frost-free. Keep the compost moist, but do not stand in water.

If your rhizome and/or plant have been purchased as a gift, you will find that we have included items that will help you refresh the packaging

·         Wasabi label - use to reseal the postage box

·         Spare muslin cloth - use to re-wrap the rhizome with clean cloth and return to unsealed bag prior to giving

·         Ice pack - follow the instructions on the bag to enable you to reuse the pack when making up the box, this will keep wasabi  cool for 12-24 hours depending on surrounding temperature

·         Ask the recipient of the wasabi to refrigerate as soon as they can after opening. The rhizome will store well for two weeks in the plastic bag it was sent in, keep the bag in the fridge, unsealed.

Wasabi is traditionally paired with sushi & sashimi but works really well with many others dishes. It is great with smoked salmon, steak or any fish. Have a look at our web site for more recipe ideas https://www.thewasabicompany.co.uk/news-and-recipes
