The Cheese and Lavash Pairing Challenge

The Cheese and Lavash Pairing Challenge

From cheddar to blue and every stop in between

When you're planning a cheese platter with the Baylies range of Lavash, you have a wide palate of flavours to work with.

Before we start pairing with cheeses, let's meet the base Lavash flavours:

  • Plain
  • Pepper
  • Rosemary

Let's look at each Lavash style and give you some cheese options.

Baylies Plain Lavash Cheese Pairing

Baylies Plain Lavash is your perfect entertaining backup plan.

Quite simply, Plain Lavash can be paired with any type of cheese.

While your options are endless, here are some of our favourites:

  • Aged Cheddars
  • Pepper Cheddar
  • Smoky and traditional Cheddar
  • Goat's cheese

For a more nutty flavour, we opt for Chevre or, when we're feeling more daring, we've paired Lavash with a marinated Chevre.

Baylies Pepper Lavash Cheese Pairing

When pairing our Pepper Lavash, be mindful that its flavour needs to work with the cheese you choose.

A safe option is to go with a mild creamy cheese, such as Brie or Camembert.

Of course, another aspect of choosing Lavash with a strong flavour like Pepper is that it can hold its own when matched with equally strong and bitey cheeses.

For example, Baylies Pepper Lavash paired with strong or smoky cheddar is pure delight, and the joy is unbound when paired with a light blue vein, if that is something your palate enjoys.

Baylies Rosemary Lavash Cheese Pairing

Just like the Pepper Lavash, the Rosemary Lavash works nicely with brie and camembert.

But something that might surprise you, the fresh rosemary flavour, works extraordinarily well when paired with sweeter notes in fruit cheeses.

If you like culinary adventures, put this claim to the test by picking up your favourite fruit cheese, like walnut and apricot, and pair it with our Rosemary Lavash.

Baylies Dipping Cracker: 'Dip and Eat'

Baylies Dipping Crackers are a good size to simply dip and eat.

It's a versatile cracker for those who want more cheese than cracker.

We would love to hear your feedback and take any further suggestions for pairing our delicious range of Lavash with your favourite cheese or dip.

Gourmet Food Best Before Dates...

Gourmet Food Best Before Dates...

Are you the Hare or the Tortoise?

There is an evil force out there, trying to stop you enjoying your Baylies cakes, biscuits and panforte with all the freshness and goodness we put into them.

That enemy is time.

And although we have a secret weapon to seal in that freshness, let me suggest that when it comes to consuming our gourmet treats, be more like the hare than the tortoise.

It not just the ingredients, it's the way they are packed.

When we had the Baylies factory shop at Woodside, you would have often heard me discuss the shelf life of cakes and biscuits and explain how to get that freshness at home.

Firstly let's begin with the use of natural ingredients.

Baylies products are made with natural, fresh and wherever possible, local ingredients.

Baylies prides itself on not using any preservatives or unreadable ingredients to create the finished product.

Our secret weapon for protecting the crunchiness of our nuts, the crispiness of our biscuits and crackers, and the moistness of our cakes, is our carefully selected food grade packaging.

The ultimate intention is that when you open the product, you will smell the fresh mouth-watering flavours as though it was baked specially for you that day.

So how should we treat those best before dates?

Of course, time is always marching and oxygen is doing its best to react with food products, because that's what oxygen does.

As a result, products will gradually lose a little of their zest as time passes, even in the most advanced packaging.

So my advice when it comes to opening that pack or tin of gourmet goodness is to not view best before dates as something to pace yourself towards.

Instead, open and enjoy as soon as you're ready. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

Spiced Fruit in Brandy Syrup : The exception to the rule

Baylies Spiced Fruit in Brandy Syrup is the only product we make that turns my rule on its head.

I personally prefer to age a jar and do not hesitate to go past the best before date.

I recommend buying a jar to eat fresh and to put another jar in a cool dark dry place to age for around six months.

When you are entertaining on short notice that jar of fruits is the perfect back up plan.

The brandy syrup soaked into the fruit served with brandy cream makes the delectable treat and will have your friends in taste bud frenzy.

So the decision is yours. If you are a hare, dig into that baked fresh goodness or if you are the tortoise make the decision to share these delectable treats with someone special.
