We were recently given the chance to try out Tesco’s Cheese For Entertaining Range. This selection features ready to eat or ready to cook products that are perfect if you are hosting a dinner party or have friends for lunch and don’t want to be slaving away in the kitchen.
We tried the Goat’s Cheese and Bacon Parcels. The goat’s cheese discs come wrapped in ultra thin smoked bacon and need pan frying (no need for oil) for a few minutes before serving. They are very tasty with strong flavours that balance each other perfectly. They’d make a lovely starter or light lunch served with a green salad and some good bread.
Next up were the Mature Cheddar Souffles. They come in individual glass dishes. Despite the hearty mature cheddar flavour, the souffle is really very light. They are so easy to cook too. You just need to bring them to room temperature and then cook in a preheated oven.
The third dish we tested was the Mexican Style Monterey Jack Cheese. This is good and spicy (it uses a traditional Mexican blend of spices plus hot chillies) so making it perfect for tortilla wrap filling. This would be good for sharing or as a snack.
The only down side I encountered was that the Tesco Cheese for Entertaining range wasn’t available in my local (quite large) store, but I was able to get it from a Tesco Extra shop.
