January can feel like a really long month, with the excitement of Christmas over and most people trying to eat healthily to make up for the overindulgence at the end of last year. If this has left you lacking in culinary inspiration and unsure what to cook, look no further.
We have rounded up some of our recipes from last year hoping to give you some ideas of what to cook and encourage you to get back into the kitchen!
Our ‘Tunworth and Celeriac Gratin’ is similar to a potato dauphinoise and is a side dish to sit alongside your choice of meat. We think it goes particularly well with steak and the creamy Tunworth gratin doubles up as the perfect sauce too.
If you’d like to try something a bit more versatile, our ‘Wild Garlic Pesto’ recipe could be perfect for you. Whilst you won’t get your hands on any wild garlic until the Spring, you can substitute the wild garlic with your choice of herbs, basil being our favourite. This pesto is great to serve on bread with a chunk of Tunworth, or even stirred into cooked pasta with a scoop of Winslade!
‘Tunworth Scones’ are delicious and can be enjoyed all year round. Perfect for dunking into a steaming bowl of soup in the winter or enjoyed out in the garden as part of your summer picnic. Always best served warm from the oven with lashings of butter, we’ll be impressed if you can eat just the one.
If you’re looking for a light lunch or supper recipe, why not try out ‘Watercress and Tunworth Tart’. The watercress season doesn’t begin until the Springtime but you can swap the watercress out in this recipe if you want to keep your cooking seasonal. Why not try adding a leek to the recipe and sweating it down with the onion.
Our recipe for ‘Tunworth Ice Cream’ is slightly more indulgent but a perfect pudding all year round. It’s easy to make and inspired by the Michelin starred chef Simon Rogan. You could try serving with a butterscotch sauce instead of the strawberries which won’t be at their best now until the summer.
We would love to hear what recipes you are cooking at the moment, especially if you are using our cheeses Tunworth or Winslade.
