Food and drink news - February 2012
It’s all chocolates and flowers in February, but if your sweetheart prefers something savoury, why not treat them to a beautiful, Godminster Organic Heart Cheddar?
Made to the same unique 70-year-old recipe as the more familiar round equivalent, Godminster have created a special heart-shaped cheese to coincide with Valentine’s Day. Wrapped in red wax, and packaged in a beautiful box this creamy organic Cheddar has a rich, tangy flavour.
400g Organic Heart Cheddar is available from www.godminster.com £14.95, including postage and packing. 200g Organic Heart Cheddar is available in most delicatessens and farm shops

It’s Green & Black’s to the rescue with their Conversations range, available in either Mint or a selection of Milk, White, Dark and Butterscotch. Each little chocolate square has a question printed inside the wrapper, guaranteed to get the chat started, add a bit of fun to dinner, and get over any awkward silences.
Green & Black’s Conversations Mint 120g and Milk, White, Dark and Butterscotch 180g are available in stores nationwide
With its smooth, refreshing taste, Indian Lassi has traditionally been consumed to balance out the hot and spicy flavours in food. Now you can enjoy a brand new Lassi yogurt drink from Andechser any time with their range of smoothies. Using organic milk and traditional Indian spices, the smoothies are available in Mango or Chai Spices (voted favourite in the office!). All natural ingredients, so no added flavour, the rich smooth taste comes solely from using only real fruit or spices. Suitable for vegetarians and pregnant women.
Andechser Organic Lassi Yogurt Smoothies are available from Ocado, Whole Foods Market, Planet Organic and selected delicatessens.

Despite living on an island with water surrounding us, we can tend to be a bit wimpy about cooking fish. Many are put off, by bones, skin, eyes…! The Saucy Fish Co. have come up with the perfect solution with their wonderful range of pre-packed fish and sauces. They have put together a fillet of fish with a sachet of sauce to complement; our favourite is the Sea Bass with Beurre Blanc, followed very closely by Salmon with Chilli, Lime and Ginger dressing. Their latest addition is Cod fillet with a Piri Piri sauce that has just the right amount of kick without being overpowering.
The Saucy Fish Co. range is available from Tesco, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Booths, Budgens and Ocado
