Valentine’s Day …

… is a wonderful time of year to demonstrate P1160921b_resizedyour appreciation and caring for those you love, whether in a romantic capacity or as a token of gratitude to a good friend or family member. Despite the influx of advertisements at this time of year, suggesting the perfect way we can spend our money to show others we love them, it’s always such a wonderful gesture to make someone a homemade gift. A homemade gift can be as simple as making dinner for a loved one, or making them a cup of coffee and surprising them in bed one morning – these small actions can really make a difference in someone’s life.

Of course, at Artisan Edibles we find great comfort in entertaining and cooking for others and we like to extend that sentiment year round. Whether you use any of our products on their own or in the myriad of recipe suggestions we have for you on our website, we can guarantee that our products will make any of your Valentine’s Day celebrations that much more special. For this year’s Valentine’s Day why not surprise someone special in your life with an exquisite dessert featuring our Champagne Rose Petal Jelly.

One of our personal favourites is P1160844b_resizedChampagne Rose Petal Jelly Meringue Roulade with Rose Petals and Fresh Raspberries, based on Yotam Ottolenghi’s original recipe, it is a spectacular melange of Middle Eastern flavours in the form of a very upscale and put-together Eton Mess.

This recipe is forgiving to the novice baker and is also the very definition of pretty, no matter your skills you’ll be able to make this dessert look gorgeous. Serve this meringue on a beautiful and brightly coloured platter with an ice cold glass of rosé champagne or prosecco.
