uTaste is a site you can subscribe to and for $29.00/month you’re sent a selection of gourmet goodies from producers in Australia and New Zealand. This can include wines, chocolates, fudge, crackers, condiments, ciders and much more besides. Here is the selection of goodies uTaste sent me…
In my kitchen, to help me start my day, I have tea. This tea is from Cairns Highlands Tea, a company in Australia’s Far North Queensland. This flavour is Misty Mountains Tea and is an elegant and fine leafed tea grown on the hills in the hinterland of Cairns. The tea is 100% Australian and has delicate aromas and is a lovely way to step into the day.
In my kitchen and after my cup of tea, I have muesli. This muesli is from Farmer Jo which is a company of muesli and breakfast lovers. This muesli, that’s packaged as an individual serving, is burnt fig and cinnamon almond toasted muesli. As soon as I lifted the lid I fell in love with the aroma of maple syrup and cinnamon and started eating it with my fingers as a snack. It’s full of chunky bits of goodness so there’s great texture and crunch – my kind of muesli.
In my kitchen I have Spreyton Cider. This cider is made from 100% Tasmanian apples and pears, with the majority grown on their own orchards in the stunningly beautiful Mersey Valley. They make a range of ciders using traditional methods and this cider is called ‘Perry’. Unlike soft drinks that I find to be sickly sweet, this cider is crisp and refreshing with distinct apple and pear flavours while not being overpowered by sweetness.
In my kitchen I have rosemary lavash by Baylies of Strathalbyn. This company is from Adelaide in South Australia and they make gourmet goodies like cakes and biscuits and confectionary. I loved the lavosh and served it with a cheese platter. The rosemary flavour was there without being overpowering and the lavosh crunchy without being brittle.
In my kitchen I have tomato and red capsicum relish from Cunliffe & Waters. This company makes some of the finest preserves in the country. This relish has a great aroma and I loved it so much I ate it on its own and just spooned it straight from the jar. It’s not too acidic and is slightly sweet and is wonderful on a cracker with cheese.
In my kitchen I have vegetable stock from The Stock Merchant. This stock is made in Sydney and in the traditional way – there is no added salt, flavour enhancers, gluten, preservatives or additives. This vegetable stock is made using market-fresh vegetables that are slowly simmered for at least eight hours. If you love good quality stocks and don’t have time to make your own, this is the brand you should look out for. I’m looking forward to using this to make a vegetarian risotto.
For $29.00 per month you can subscribe to uTaste and every month they will send you a selection of all the best Australia and New Zealand is producing.
