The Bank Holiday has been a busy one with visiting relatives, good food, showing how much of a geek I can be at a Pub Quiz plus a visit to a Beer, Wine & Cheese festival. With the beautiful weather and the fact I had to cater for a crowd we had a delicious meal of salad leaves and radishes picked straight from the garden along with Hubby’s recently cured salami, honey & mustard ham, cottage loaf baked by me plus a large cheeseboard. To accompany all of this food we also tried some new Farrington Oils products.
I’ve been a big fan of Farrington Oils for years and have written before about how much I enjoy their products before. When I was offered the chance to try some of their new products, I jumped at the chance. Plus my family who buy their Mellow Yellow dressings from Waitrose were also interested in trying the new vinaigrette and mayonnaise.
The first to try was the Classic Vinaigrette. In the garden we are growing a mixture of rocket along with other strong tasting salad leaves and this vinaigrette accompanied them perfectly and managed to bring the flavours out well.
The mayonnaise is the newest addition to their ranges and it quite unlike any other mayonnaise out there. I’m not usually a bit mayo eater, but this version is mouthwatering. With the subtle taste of Dijon mustard plus the lemony sharpness, we have tried it with numerous dishes over the last few weeks. From chip dunking to more refined chicken salad each time it has been delicious. I think I will struggle to eat any other brand since tasting this version! As you can probably tell by looking at the jar in the pic it was rather empty by the time I got around to photographing it proving how much we enjoyed it.
