Region: Loire Valley
This little lactic goats cheese hails from the lush green pastures of the Loire Valley, where many famous French goat's cheeses are made.
A slow lactic set creates a firm, chalky center with freshness and acidity. As the cheese ages, the rind breaks down the paste just underneath it to create a fudgy intense layer, which has much more character.
Now available in our cheese department! Enjoy with a crusty baguette and a fig jam or honey. Alternatively, they can be grilled over bread and served with a fresh zesty salad.

Pimientos de Padron, the Padron chilli is most commonly consumed when small and green, when it has a fresh and sweet flavour. It is traditionally sauteed in olive oil and sea salt, and served in tapas bars across their hometown of Spain. When fully mature, they are red in colour and much spicier than their green counterparts. Whilst generally a mild chilli, measuring in between 500 to 2500 Scoville Heat Units, the occasional rogue Padron has earned this chilli the nickname of the 'spanish roulette' as some individual pods are significantly hotter.

Meaning "sweet" in Italian, Gorgonzola "Dolce" DOP is a soft, blue, buttery cheese made with uncooked cow's whole milk. The cheese took its name from a small town in Lombardy near Milan, where it said to have been born in the 12th century. It has a white or pale yellow, buttery and melty paste speckled with a homogeneous distribution of blue coloured veins. The rind is compact, rough, hard and grey/pinkish in colour but not edible. Flavours are not very assertive but sweet, mild with notes of sour cream and lactic tang. The cheese pairs well with a Tuscan Vin Santo and Champagne.
Breadfruit is a member of the Jackfruit family, and is native to the South Pacific. Breadfruit has a thick, warty, greenish skin and white starchy flesh with a bread-like texture and tastes sweet when eaten ripe. It is normally eaten as a vegetable and can be peeled and boiled, roasted or fried like potatoes, baked whole in the oven or barbecued. Breadfruit seeds are used in a similar way to Jackfruit seeds. If breadfruit is allowed to ripen, the flesh becomes light yellow, soft and very sweet. Now available in our produce department!

We have a very limited amount of tomatillos available in our produce department! The tomatillo is also known as the Mexican husk tomato. The colour of the fruit is a beautiful bright green, which fades a bit once you cook them. Tomatillos have a slightly more acidic, slightly less sweet flavor than ripe and unripe tomatoes. Overall, the flavor is more vegetal and bright, and the interior texture is denser and less watery. Try this tomatillo salsa recipe by Marcus Nilsson.
