I love a good surprise so when I was contacted recently by Serenata Flowers to see if I'd like to review one of the many hampers that they stock how could I refuse. Trouble was I couldn't decide which one I really wanted so I left it up to them to pick out one for me.
Can I say firstly, speedy delivery, I spoke to them in the afternoon and by the next day I had my hamper in hand, brilliant service.
The hamper I received was the Cheese Trug. Lots of scrummy cheese, crackers and chutney all gorgeously presented in a lovely basket.
The contents of the trug were as follows :
* Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton - now I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of stilton however I opted to use this when making a brocolli and stilton soup.
* Godminster Vintage Organic Cheddar Cheese - I adore cheddar and as I've got older the stronger the cheese the better it seems to taste, this made for a delightful cheese and pickle sandwich!!
Hand Waxed Blackberries, Cranberries & Apple Cheese - Lets start by saying good way to get some of your five a day in ;) This I suppose is more of a dessert cheese, wonderfully creamy with little chunks of fruit adding a sweetness to it.
* GodminsterWater Biscuits With Rosemary - Cheese and crackers are a match made in heaven and these water biscuits are no exception. I made myself a little cheese board and put a bit of everything on, all the items seemed to compliment each other so well.
* Kay's Kitchen Tomato & Onion Chutney - A great mix and of cheese and tomato is another classic combination. I also opted to put this in a sausage sandwich, something you must try!!
Priced at £39.99, this cheese trug makes the perfect gift, whether you want to treat someone else or you think you deserve a little something for yourself and the basket that everything comes in can be used again, recycle to put more presents in it or display something in.
