Castello Cheeses + A Thank You

I was recently asked to try some House of Castello® cheeses, how can I say no to cheese? It's one of my favourite ingredients and we do eat a lot of it.

Castello® cheese 3540 R

There are currently 8 Castello® cheeses on sale in the UK, including Pineapple Halo and a fiery Black Pepper Halo. The cheese is produced in Denmark and can be found in all good supermarkets. I could only find two of the cheeses - the Castello® Creamy Blue and the Castello® Danish Blue Traditional.

Castello cheeses 3557 R

The Castello® Creamy Blue is sharp, salty and would be perfectly paired with crackers and ripe figs. The Castello® Danish Blue Traditional cheese is perfect with grapes, toasted rye bread and quince jam.

Castello cheese on digestive biscuit 3547 R
Castello® Creamy Blue on a simple digestive biscuit, it's the sweet and salty combination that I like

You can find out more about the House of Castello® cheese range on their website, where you will find a unique cheese tool, called Host Your Own, to help you create your ultimate cheeseboard.
They are also on Facebook and Twitter.

Do you love your garden?

If so, take a look at the cracking Love Your Garden website. It's a wealth of information on looking after your garden, from lawn care to pest and disease control. There are even forums to discuss your garden problems, solutions and receive/give advice.

At the moment they are running a 'carrot' competition for bloggers and you could win a £200 restaurant voucher, or one of three copies of 'comfort & Spice' by Niamh Shields (from Eat Like a Girl) who is judging the competition.

Love the Garden tomato winner announced

I was the lucky winner of last month's 'tomato' competition judged by James Ramsden (with my summer tomato tart with a chilli cheese pastry) and I have chosen to go to the The Ledbury for my prize!

Thank you so much!
