OUR PERFECT PAIRINGS FOR ENGLISH APPLES & PEARS
There is nothing quite like a sweet crisp Red Windsor apple or the juicy bite from an English Conference pear. Which is why this week we’re championing these beautiful British fruits from this week's Best in Season Selection. To show you the wonderfully diverse flavours these fruits partner with, we’ve put together our perfect pairings.
RED WINDSOR APPLES
Quickes Vintage Cheddar is a wonderful partner to the Red Windsor apple. It has a huge depth of flavour and its crumbly texture is complemented by the sweetness and crunch of the apple.
Pair slices with Cobble Lane’s classic Sliced Salt and Pepper Salami for a delicious combination. Take this pairing to the next level by adding a piece of Cropwell Bishop Stilton, known for its rich tangy flavour.
Pastry is a fantastic way to turn humble ingredients into something spectacular. The Tarte Tatin is a heavenly French dessert consisting of dark sticky caramel, sweet apples and crisp pastry. Finish with a drizzle of Guernsey Double Cream.
ENGLISH CONFERENCE PEARS
Pear and Stilton have become a classic pairing for a reason, they’re absolutely delicious together. We recommend Cropwell Bishop Stilton as this traditionally-made cheese uses the finest Peak District milk, offering velvety texture and tangy rich taste. Make into a tart, match together in salads or simply eat together on crackers.
A simple flavour combination is fresh sliced pear with Estate Dairy Greek Style Yoghurt. Traditionally strained, this yoghurt is beautifully rich and dense. Enjoy for breakfast with the addition of a handful of granola.
Now it’s time for a sweet sensation like no other, pear and chocolate! Michel Cluizel is one of the world’s most renowned chocolatiers in the world, using only the most superior pure ingredients including 100% cocoa butter and Bourbon vanilla pods. Try poaching your pear and topping with his Dark Chocolate 72% as the smooth velvety flavours of cocoa are a match made in heaven.
