I love fresh crusty bread, real bread,
not what you find in the supermarket aisle.
For me, fresh crunchy bread demands olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
I can thank my Dad for that!
So when I was sent some products from Guava Gourmet
I knew exactly what I was going to do with them!
I was sent their Caramelised Balsamic Vinegar which was sweet, full flavoured
and perfect for dipping the bread into with some good quality olive oil.
I also used it as a salad dressing and it was brilliant!
The sweet flavour of the Caramelised Balsamic would also lend itself to strawberries or sweet foods as well!
I'm thinking about using it in a Blueberry Chocolate Cake to add a depth of flavour.
I was also sent their Garlic Dukkah
for those of you who don't know, Dukkah is a blend of seeds, nuts and other flavourings and it can be used as a topping for salads or a crust for meat - among other things.
For me, it was a perfect compliment to the crusty bread with oil
and I just sprinkled some on top of the bread.
I loved the crunch of the dukkah and am definitely going to use it again in the future in salads to add texture and flavour.
And I think it will make a perfect topping for garlic bread or garlic pizza!
For me, dipping bread into olive oil always reminds me of my Dad
and it's still something we indulge in together!
I love how food can bring people together and create good memories!
So tell me,
Is there a certain food that brings back memories to you?
