Discover Delicious Welsh Produce this festive season


Welsh cheese


*I was kindly asked by Discover Delicious to try out some of their produce for an honest review 

I'm am a big supporter of shopping local, supporting small independent businesses and enjoying the local delicacies found on our doorstep and luckily there is plenty of fantastic produce right here in Wales from Welsh cheese to wine, gin, chutneys, chocolate and everything in between.  

Like most people, however, I don't always have as much time as I would like to roam local fairs and farmers markets so having an online store such as Discover Delicious which brings the best of Welsh produce and foodie experience in one place is just fantastic and makes shopping independent a breeze.

As we moved into December and festive season I thought having a little Cheese and Gin lunch to welcome the festivities in was in order but while keeping those food miles down and enjoying the bounty of local welsh food so I ordered the Cheese Lovers Gift Box alongside some Crawshay Rose Gin Liqueur and along with an array of local favourites that is Cradoc's crackers, the perfect combo for a casual festive lunch if you ask me.

The Cheese Lovers Gift Box is the perfect present for any cheese aficionado, it has a bit of everything you want from a platter and knowing its all proudly Welsh somehow makes it taste even better. It consists of 4 different kinds of cheese including the Perl Las blue cheese, the Y Fenni Cheddar spiked with bear and wholegrain mustard, Preseli soft cheese and finally the Bouncing Berry white cheddar with cranberries. The gift box also comes with a pack of Cradoc's crackers and some delicious Welsh Lady Fig and Date chutney which has quickly become my favourite chutney and I know will be a regular in my pantry from now on. 

While I do love wine, including Welsh and British wines, there has been a real resurgence in artisan Gin making and for me Gin botanicals and cheese are the perfect parings plus the idea of having a tipple brewed just down the road (in fact less than 25mins from my home) is even more appealing which is why I went for the Crawshay Rose Gin. Crawshay Gin is produced at the Hensol Castle Distillery just outside of Cardiff and the love to make creative and unique small-batch craft gins with the Rose Gin being on of their more exotic with middle eastern aromas and fresh rose petals, it's both delicate and refreshing.

What is also very unique about Discover Delicious is that it not only offers welsh produce but the chance to see how they are made or learn for yourself first hand with one of the foodie experiences they offer such as a mushroom foraging tour in Snowdonia or learning how to perfect the homemade loaf at One Mile Bakery in Cardiff. 

So if you're looking for something a little different, want to support local, keep those food miles down and shop more consciously then do pop over to Discover Delicious - they also have 10% off all orders until the 16th December by using the 10OFFCHRISTMAS19 code.
