Serenata Flowers Review and Competition

On the weekend we were sent a hamper from Serenata Flowers; for those who haven't heard of Serenata Flowers they are a company that specialises in luxury food and flower deliveries; including food and wine hampers, flower bouquets, potted plants and a selection of luxury chocolates. 

Our hamper (we said, "surprise us!" because they have such a great selection and we couldn't decide - everything looked too delicious!) was a luxury cheese and crackers basket.




Inside we had three types of cheese (Cropwell Bishop's Finest Blue Stilton, some Godminster Vintage Organic Cheddar and some Croome Cuisine Black Berries and Apple Mature cheddar), a jar of Kay's Kitchen's handmade Organic Tomato and Onion Chutney and a box of Godminster Rosemary Water Biscuits.




Now you know what we're like; someone sends us food, we have to eat it! We had a few water biscuits, sliced off some of the Black Berries and Apple Cheddar and got out the chutney. Obviously it tasted delicious! You'd expect that. But you could tell that these were much higher quality than the sort of thing you'd pick up at the local supermarket. The water biscuits were light and the taste of Rosemary running through them was inspired, the cheese was beautiful - and the fruit gave it a certain je ne sais quoi, which really complemented the sharpness of the cheese. The Onion and Tomato Chutney though was awesome! We loved it! I'd be tempted to say it could double up as a salsa dip as it had a warmth to it which was pleasant and not overpowering; not to mention the fact that it was full of flavour and went well with the cheese and biscuits.




The rest of the cheeses look equally high quality and we're expecting to be just as wowed by them. Our Cheese Trug hamper retails at £39.99 (which includes free delivery) and we think is a great luxury selection to spoil a cheese lover in your life.
