Jean Patrique Stovetop Toastie Maker use at home or outside

We all love cheese and toast and that is why so many of us love cheese toasties. A cheese toastie is the ultimate comfort food and are really easy to make. However when it comes to cooking a cheese toastie it can get slightly messy if using an electric cheese toastie machine with cheese and butter oozing out from the sides. Thankfully Stovetop Toastie Maker by Jean Patrique has made cooking a cheese toastie that much simpler and cleaner.

I was gifted a PR product* of Jean Patrique Stove Toastie Maker to review. It requires no electricity, it is portable and can be used indoors or outdoors either on a gas stove, electric hob, over a campfire or BBQ.

ORSOM Cheese is awesome

Cheese is made all over the world but have you ever had cheese from ORSOM? Their dairy farm is based in Cheshire and they produced the most creamiest and tastiest milk thanks to their cows, who are the most pampered on the planet as they get treated to manicures, back scratches and music. I wonder if they have listened to Old McDonald Had a Farm?

Courtesy of ORSOM Cheese I was gifted a selection of their cheeses. Cheeses though don’t always have to be enjoyed with crackers as cheese is also great used within dishes. So I used ORSOM cheese in dishes which I feel worked beautifully with their different cheeses.

ORSOM

ORSOM cheese are producers of high premium range products which are handcrafted by their skilled cheesemakers in-house at their dairy in Nantwich, Cheshire.

Their cheese is vegetarian friendly and is full of flavour and loaded with personality. As their cows every day are treated with love, from enjoying the sounds of music, having manicures and even back-scratches.

All their milk is collected daily from their own cows and from cows from other specially selected farms near by.

Cheaze is a cheese lovers dream

Staying at home has become the new going out for a lot of us lately with the pandemic so we have had to enjoy date nights in. There is an array of ways to make the perfect date night in special from ordering a takeaway or perhaps one of the many DIY cook boxes, or even carefully crafted bottled cocktails by top mixologists but what tops off the ultimate night in my opinion is a lump of cheese. Cheese is ideal for an after dinner treat which can be eaten with crackers, chutney and savoured with wine. Attentively cheese is also great used to make starters and main meals with.

Courtesy of Cheaze I was gifted a box of their cheese to sample at home where I nibbled on some new cheeses and I even got a little creative with some as I made some delicious meals with them.
