Wow, how come it’s Friday already?

Hello,

For day 3 of Caribbean Food Month, it’s time for a review.  Coconut milk is one of the stables when it comes to Caribbean cookery. This versatile ingredient can be used in sweet and savoury dishes and lends itself to a multitude of international culinary treats. It also serves as an alternative to dairy.

Dunn’s River Coconut Milk has a thick, smooth texture with a light coconut flavour, meaning that it will work well with tea and coffee. It doesn’t have that sometimes clawy aftertaste when sampled on its own, although it does have a tendency to separate. But a quick stir with a spoon soon resolves that issue.

As a product in its own right, I can’t find much to fault it.  As the saying goes, it say’s exactly what it is on the tin. As an ingredient, it works well without any problems, responding to heat well. It’s a great product to have in your pantry.

Tomorrow’s blog includes recipe ideas featuring Dunn’s River Coconut Milk. Please return to find out more. Thanks for reading and if you’re in the UK or Spain – try to stay cool. I adore the sun, but 38 degrees is my limit. The thought of having to work in potentially 48 degree heat, makes the mind boggle. Best of luck!

Lindt Coconut Milk Chocolate Truffles – Review

Packaged in a beautiful sea green box, these coconut truffles are an absolute delight. You don’t get many in terms of weight, but for the current sale price of £3.50, if you’re looking for a last minute gift for the coco-nut or the chocoholic in your life, you could do far worse.

The coconut filling has a pleasant flavour, if a little over sweet in it’s aftertaste. The milk chocolate is smooth in texture and delicious – what you would expect from the Lindt chocolate house.

The box weight is 200g, for which you will get around 16 truffles, or in my language, gifts for 2 people! (more on this later). Normally retailing for about £4.90, I suggest you take advantage of the current offer and treat yourself, or a loved one with these spherical delights.

I would have liked a few more in the box for the retail price, but for the sale price, I think it’s reasonable.

Rating 3.5/5

I shall be posting gifting ideas soon, including how to make presents for 2 people, out of 1 box of chocolates. For gifting ideas, subscribe to this blog to make sure you don’t miss out.
