We recently joined up with Harriet Walker from Harriet’s Kitchen, to host three Cookery Demonstrations at Farmer Barnes Dairy, for the festive season. The idea was that each dish should contain a cheese made from our milk at Clawson Dairy.
Harriet came up with an amazing menu with a wide selection of cheese used. We offered our guests Cotswold Cheesestraws with Blue Stilton Dip when they arrived with a glass of Mulled Wine. Then offered a taste of Blue Shropshire & White Wine Soup while Harriet demonstrated this dish in front of an appreciative audience. This was followed by Macaroni Cheese & Bacon Lardons made with Rutland Red (an Aged Red Leicester) and toasted breadcrumb topping. We also served a White Stilton with Apricot & Red Onion Tart warm and served with fresh green salad and crusty rolls.
Desserts included a White Stilton with Mango & Ginger cheesecake to die for! Harriet demonstrated and gave tips about this amazing Cheesecake. She used crushed ginger biscuits in the base and topped with small chunks of mango & ginger stems in the cream cheese. Chocolate curls made with a potato pealer added the finishing touch. Then everyone enjoyed a taste of Wensleydale with Dried Cranberries in a Oat Bite (like a Flapjack but better)! These were a delicious finish to an amazing meal.
