Accompaniments

These Chilli Cheese Sticks have an earthy and powerful taste that is nuttier than a mature cheddar with overtones of an aged alpine cheese, thanks to the Lincolnshire Poacher. This flavour, combined with the chilli kick makes a great bread stick.

Westcombe Cheddar is has a fantastic powerful taste which is what you need in a cheese when paired with chilli. The flavour combination in this bread recipe creates rich and earthy tones that is melt-in-your-mouth gorgeous. Serve warm with a knob of butter.

Shropshire Blue Cheese Muffins are a joy for breakfast, snacks, lunches, picnics, soup side-dishes or suppers. They have a soft and bouncy sponge, and a kick of salty, nuttiness from the Shropshire Blue.
