You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone in Australia who hasn’t at least heard of Maggie Beer, she’s an incredible cook, author, restauranteur and all-round amazing person.
The 75-year-old resides in the beautiful Barossa Valley in South Australia and owns her own shop and restaurant in the region. And to put it simply – the products she creates are absolutely mouth-watering.
People come from far and wide to taste the meals she’s created, and if you’re lucky enough to be able to enter SA right now – a visit there should definitely be on your itinerary. But, if you’re unable to travel or don’t have the funds to get there, there’s another way to sample her goods.
Maggie has made a whole heap of her products available online through the Starts at 60 Marketplace, from brandy butter sauce and dark chocolate and vino cotto caramel, to chicken stock and quince paste. But, if you really want to treat yourself – why not check out Maggie’s range of hampers (they’re currently 15 per cent off!).
They give you a wide selection of products from the amazing cook with something to suit everyone’s taste buds. They could even be sent as a gift to a loved one who you haven’t been able to see for a while. Trust us, it will bring a big smile to their face.
For those with a sweet-tooth – and who also love a nice drink at night – you can’t go past the Chocolate and Wine Hamper. It contains Beer Bros Wine from the Barossa, Red Cacao Chocolate from the Adelaide Hills and a heap of other delicious Maggie Beer products to make the ultimate package. You’ll find raspberry and pomegranate jam, plum and shiraz paste, lemon butter, dark chocolate and vino cotto caramel – and much more!
Meanwhile, with the weather warming up and more opportunities to get outside, you’ve no doubt thought of planning a barbecue or picnic with your loved ones. And the Barbecue Essentials Hamper is the perfect place to start. It contains tomato sauce, Saskia Beer pickled onion relish, Ploughman’s chutney, Moroccan spice, honey and dijon vinaigrette – just to name a few.

Now more than ever is the time to support local businesses such as Maggie Beer. The outbreak of the coronavirus has put significant pressure on businesses around the country, with many experiencing a loss of custom, and therefore profit, this year.
But now, as the country starts to get on top of the virus and people venture outdoors again, things are looking up and Aussies can once again throw their support behind local businesses who are doing it tough. Check out the Starts at 60 Marketplace to view the full range of Maggie Beer products available.
