Summer Dips from Delphi

The weather may have taken a turn for the worse this week but hopefully the sun will be returning very soon and we’ll be able to enjoy these delightful summer dips from Delphi Foods al fresco style.

Red pepper houmous

Established in 1984, Delphi Foods is a family run business specialising in dips, salads, olives and tapas made using the finest ingredients. We have been stocking their products for a long time and following recent introduction of new lines and vibrant new packaging they are really becoming a popular choice for a number of our customers.

Traditional dips include classic houmous, made with ground chickpeas, nutty tahini and lemon juice, refreshing tzatziki with cooling yogurt, chopped cucumber and mint and chunky guacamole made with avocado, coriander, lemon and a hint of chilli. Other dips in their range including smoky aubergine, classic taramasalata, Auberginesmooth tahini and a variety of flavoured houmous.

Their extensive salad range includes fluffy cous cous with smoky char-grilled vegetables, fresh edamame beans and sun-dried tomatoes with mixed herbs and hearty three bean salad with a mix of red kidney, borlotti and cannelloni beans marinated in olive oil and herbs. All of these salads are suitable for vegetarians and the majority are also vegan friendly making them a perfect addition for BBQ’s and al fresco parties this summer. They also travel well which makes them a great picnic staple.

Cous cousAmong their tapas products are classic falafel made from garbanzo beans and Middle Eastern spices, tasty Greek style dolmades made using fresh vine leaves and a delicious mix of cooked rice and herbs and red peppers stuffed with feta cheese and marinated with garlic and fresh herbs.

We love the new look of the Delphi products and the family ethos surrounding the business is similar to our own.

Our Favourite Summer Cheeses

The sun is out and summer is finally here! What better time to enjoy some fresh, summer cheeses out in the garden than on these warm, light evenings? We’ve listed a few of our favourites below.

rosemary-honey-drizzled-fetaOur first choice is a staple of summer, Feta is strong and rich in salty flavours and will instantly transport you to a sun drenched beachside taverna. Protected Designation of Origin means Feta can only be produced in Greece and is believed to have originated from nomadic tribes who needed to preserve the milk of their goats and sheep. Drizzle with a little olive oil and pair with some olives and sundried tomatoes or honey and fresh rosemary for instant summer feels.

We know the blues are normally winter domain but this Cornish Blue from the Cornish Cheese Co. is a delicious exception. Made on the edge of Bodmin MoorMail-chimp-Cornish-Blue-Cheese-Xmas-image using locally sourced milk this is vastly different from traditional blue cheeses. Mild and creamy with a gentle sweetness, it is designed to be eaten young and is perfect with honey, almonds and fresh crusty bread.

We think the new Quicke’s Traditional Elderflower cheddar is a real summer treat. Matured for up to six months by expert cheesemakers in Newton St Cyres, Devon, this is a fresh, buttery cheddar with delicate hints of elderflower. Try it with some good quality biscuits or crackers and a crisp white and you’ll be in summer heaven.

A soft cheese alternative is the Le Roule from the Vosges region of France which laroule_EvZI1PYis made using pasteurised cows milk and easily recognisable because of its distinctive herb swirl. Fresh and creamy garlic and herb flavours and a smooth texture make this a deliciously light summer treat. Best enjoyed spread on fresh, crusty bread or even as a savory breakfast.

Treat yourself this summer and enjoy the delights of these light, fresh cheeses.
