I love cheese and cheese loves me.
I honestly do not want to live in a world where there is no cheese. I could eat cheese all day, every day if there were no associated health risks (always eat responsibly).
Aside from cheese itself, what I love is the relationship between cheese and other food groups. Cheese goes well with bread, olives, meat, grapes, you name it! Basically cheese is a symbol of hope for humanity. We should all be like cheese and come together in delicious unity. This is why getting sent some jars of The English Provender Co.’s chutneys to review as a gift was an absolute delight and an opportunity to dust off my fancy slate cheeseboard.
As you can see the branding and packaging is absolutely brilliant. The attention to detail and quality of design makes each jar feel like a perfect gift for others or simply a gift to yourself.
I went with brie and blue cheese for my cheese board opting for the Hot Chilli and Red Repper chutney and the Plum & Bramley apple chutney on crackers, very simple but very effective. The chutneys taste homemade, they have a depth of flavour that would most probably be missing from a mass produced jar of chutney and the ingredients used are clearly high quality. What I particularly liked was that the chutneys whilst containing sugar didn’t taste like they were full of saturated sugars, this probably has something to do with the quality of the ingredients and how they are combined within The English Provender Co. recipes. They are rich and wholesome with almost a festive feel, these products would go great with mulled wine but obviously suitable for anytime of the year. These chutneys get a thumbs up from me! Make sure you give them a try with plenty of cheese of course.
You can find them in most major supermarkets, visit their website to find out more about the brand.
