Foodie Roundup - Zesters Graters Chocolates Snacks Nibbles and Beers

A quick roundup post of some of the lovely new products which I've been very kindly sent this month to try.
Microplane® Premium Classic Zester
The long, narrow, rasp-style design of the Premium Classic Zester is now available in white and grey and combines a long-lasting stainless steel blade; 400 micro-teeth with an ergonomic soft-touch handle to produce a high-performance grater.  I really love this grater it does a fantastic job with little effort.

Microplane® Gourmet Series
Red and green are the latest additions to the paddle-style Gourmet Series.  Five graters are available including Coarse, Fine, Ribbon, Large Shaver or Extra Coarse which deliver various grating results to suit your needs.  All blades have been made in the USA using clever photo-etching technology to make an extremely sharp blade - the Gourmet Series cuts quickly and effortlessly through hard and soft foods without tearing.
I say Microplane are the bees knees of graters!

Both the Microplane® Gourmet Series and the Premium Classic Zester Graters are available from John Lewis, House of Fraser and independent cookshops nationwide including Steamer Trading.

Cadbury Milk Tray - Celebrates its 100th Birthday!
Britain’s iconic Cadbury Milk Tray has undergone a special makeover in celebration of its 100th birthday.  From the beautifully redesigned box, to three delicious new flavours, there has never been a better time to gift a box of Cadbury Milk Tray to a loved one!

The new flavours are Apple Crunch with a special ‘100’ year stamp design on the chocolate itself.  Salted Caramel and Chocolate Truffle are also new - my favorite is the salted caramel.  Paul (the husband and chef taster of all things chocolate) munched his way through the box in no time and didn't have a favorite as he loved all of them!

Ardens Arden & Amici
Ardens have a fantastic range of delicious savoury nibbles and sweet treats.  We especially loved the Cream Cheese and Spring Onion Melts; they really do melt in your mouth.  The Petites Chocolatey Pastry Rolls didn't last long before they were eaten either!

Arden & Amici have Italian bakery products including these Almond Cantuccini; delicious perfect with coffee.

Available in Waitrose and Ocado
