If you know someone partial to a sliver of cheese or two, this sumptuous Cottage Delight The Cheeseboard Hamper features a selection of cheeseboard accompaniments will make the perfect gift.

Caramelised Onion Chutney (40g) – One of Cottage Delight's best-selling recipes, Caramelised Onion Chutney is a richly flavoured accompaniment to enjoy with pork pies, cold cuts and cheese, and a spoonful stirred into gravy makes a big flavour difference to a plate of bangers and mash. Made with 51% onions caramelised with muscovado sugar, balsamic vinegar and a special blend of spices.
Chilli Chutney (40g) – Tomato-based, it teams the sweetness of Demerara sugar with a chilli kick to pack a real punch.
Tomato, Garlic & Ginger Chutney (40g) – A twist on the age-old favourite of tomato chutney, Cottage Delight have added the richness of garlic and stem ginger to give this deluxe chutney a luxurious boost of flavour. Containing 37% ripened tomatoes as well as sharp Bramley apples, with sultanas for texture and sweetness, it’s delicious beside quiches and cheese as well as cold cuts and pork pies. And it’s delightful stirred into a bowlful of pasta or as a glaze for chicken drumsticks.
Cheeseboard Chutney (105g) – Extra-fruity, made with Bramley apples, raisins and walnuts to give it rich flavour and a chunky texture that complements soft and hard cheeses as well as cold meats and pork pies.
Old English Chutney with Cider (105g) – 2012 Winner of a Great Taste Gold Award, this old-fashioned chutney is packed full of delicious English fruits and vegetables. Traditionally made in small batches using Bramley apples, green beans, cauliflower, dates, onions and a dash of cider, it’s best enjoyed as part of a classic ploughman’s platter, or in the perfect cheese and pickle sandwich.
Oval Alberts (150g) – Traditional, light-textured savoury biscuits for cheese. Hand-baked in small batches, they’re perfect with pâté too.
Scottish Oatcakes (250g) – Classic Scottish oatcakes, the perfect base for any cheese and chutney topping.
Sweet Apple Chutney (310g) – Winner of a coveted Brammy Award, this delicious apple chutney is lightly spiced and rich in texture, made with 30% tangy Bramleys. Delicious with hard cheeses like a traditional Cheddar, it also works well with crumbly cheeses such as Lancashire, Wensleydale and Cheshire. The high apple content means it’s an excellent alternative to apple sauce to serve with roast pork or minted lamb and it’s ideal as a sticky glaze for ribs and pork chops.
The Cheese Maker’s Pickle (335g) – 2011 Winner of a Great Taste Gold Award, it’s made with rhubarb, plums, blackcurrants, blackberries, carrot and onion, and makes a deliciously perfect pairing with any variety of cheese or pork pies.
