Top Five Perfect Partners For Cheese May 4, 2018 12:16
When it comes to perfect foodie pairings there's not much beats the tried and tested marriage of cheese and biscuits! Need a wee snack mid morning - cheese and biscuits. A perfect munch while bingeing on Netflix - cheese and biscuits. The ideal end to a swanky dinner party - you got it, cheese and biscuits!
However, even this simplest of pleasures comes in many variations. From a humble cracker with cheddar to an altogether more sophisticated crispbread with perhaps a little fig jam, this month's blog brings you our favourite cheesy pairings!
Monte Enebro Goats Cheese / Peter’s Yard Crispbread
In Sweden, crispbread can often be found at the heart of the dinner table and was introduced to the Scandinavian region back in the 1500s. It is often used as an alternative to bread and tastes delicious when topped with cheese, salmon or jam.
We recommend pairing Monte Enebro Goats Cheese with Peter’s Yard Sourdough Crispbreads, and if you’re feeling extra indulgent why not add a drizzle of truffle honey on top!
Peter’s Yard Crispbread is made in the UK but using the original Swedish recipe, and is made from natural ingredients including Shipton Mill organic flour, organic fresh milk and Peter’s Yard’s own precious sourdough, which is fed daily and fermented for up to 16 hours before being baked.
Semi Curado Manchego with Membrillo (quince paste) / Stag Bakery Original Stornoway Water Biscuits
How about this for a treat? Semi Curado Manchego with Membrillo on top of delicious Stornoway Water Biscuits from Stag Bakery!
The award-winning biscuits come in a classic 70mm size and have been specially created with skills passed down through the ages and are made with the same passion now as they were back then. They are famously paired with cheese, pates or fish.
The biscuits have won a number of Great Taste Awards over the past decade and we think that together with the Manchego and Membrillo, it’s the perfect combination!
Gorgonzola Dolcificato / Fine Cheese Company Cherry Almond & Linseed Toasts
This thin, light and crisp toast (baked twice like biscotti) made by Fine Cheese Company is uniquely studded with fruits, nuts and seeds, and is created specifically to be paired with cheese!
What makes the toast unique is that 60% of the cracker is composed of fruits, nuts and seeds, and we personally think it tastes best with the delicious Gorgonzola Dolcificato.
You can also try it with other rich blue cheeses such as Fourme D’Ambert and Stilton.
Brie de Meaux / Wild Hearth Bakery baguette with Tracklements Fig Relish
We absolutely love this mouth-watering combination of Brie de Meaux on a crusty Wild Hearth Bakery baguette, topped with Tracklements Fig Relish.
The tasty relish is made from figs soaked in spiced vinegar before being chopped and cooked in a rich dark sugar.
The tangy and not-too-sweet flavour of the relish makes it the perfect topping to go with the Brie and crusty baguette. It also goes well with goat and sheep cheese.
Isle of Mull Cheddar on Your Piece Oatcakes / Miller’s Ale Chutney
One for beer lovers – delicious Isle of Mull Cheddar on Oatcakes by Your Piece, topped with Miller’s Ale Chutney!
The combination of the cheddar and oatcakes will have your taste buds tingling, but when finished off with this ale-based chutney you will simply be in heaven.
Miller’s Ale Chutney has a gentle spice as well as fruity hints and is also made with a slug of English Real Ale to round it off. Perfect!
