March had nearly gone but is not too late to try our some wonderful cheese from Le Rustique.
This company has been producing quality cheese since 1975, easy to find in its authentic wooden style box. I love that it is wrapped in white and red gingham as you feel that you are getting a luxury item.
So Le Rustique is celebrating with new recipes using honey as the secret ingredient. All you need is a box of Le Rustique Camembert and a wedge of Le Rustique Brie de Caractere and you can start cooking.
Le Rustique has done the hard work and got the balance of flavours just right and have a whole range of fab recipes created by Lavender & Lovage perfect for all those spring and summer days.
The one I thought was yummy is :-
