'Just for Cheese' Jam - 57g
Just For Cheese is a line of signature preserve pairings especially created for cheeses.
Far from obscuring the taste of the cheese, the aim is to enhance its organoleptic properties and create a flow of perfectly balanced olfactory and gustative sensations. Can Bech elaborates these sauces using fruits, dried fruits, nuts and spices, ingredients that are specially selected by origin and that it searches for throughout the 5 continents.
With rose petals and Szechuan pepper:
"Fresh cheese requires a subtle pairing to balance with its soft texture. To compliment their softness and clean, lactic aromas we looked for a sweet, fragrant sauce, with a similar texture that would accompany the flavor of the cheese without masking it. The combination of raspberries, that conserve their attractive ruby red colour, the perfume of rose petals and the personality of Szechuan pepper, added in just the right measure, results in a fine and delicate fusion."
Recommended for fresh and soft cheeses like Mozzarella, Ricotta, Feta, Mascarpone, Cabecou, Cottage, Panela, and more!
Peaches and Apricots:
With Goji berries and Guatemalan cardamom:
"Slightly sweet with a citrus note. A perfect counterpoint for soft ripened cheese. We searched for two textures very similar to those of vineyard peaches and apricots, subtly sweet but highly aromatic. We broke up the orange colour with the addition of Goji berries, which provide just the right touch of moisture with their Asiatic sweetness. The finishing touch is provided by the perfume of the Guatemalan Cardamom, a Slow Food staple due to its incredibly powerful fragrance."
Recommended for soft ripened cheeses like Brie, Camembert, Brillat-Savarin, Chaorce, Gratte-Paille, and more!
Smooth and creamy pairs with the pungent qualities of blue cheese
"The density of ripe figs, with just the right amount of sugar to avoid an overpowering sweetness, combines perfectly with blue cheeses. Added to this is the lightly roasted touch of macadamia nuts, with a smooth, moist creaminess, and finally the spicy contrast of Jamaican allspice, which, far from separating the combination of flavors, acts as a link, bringing together all these lingering tastes."
Recommended for blue cheeses like Roquefort, Gorgonzola, Stilton, Valdeón, Cabrales, Bleu d’Auvergne, and more!
Mixed with fresh quince, slowly ripened at its optimum point of ripeness, which provides the natural sweetness of the fruit and an intense flavour. The quince gives this sauce a very succulent and unctuous texture, which, when combined with vanilla and paired with cheese, provides a very smooth and pleasant mouthfeel.
We have created a sweet sauce reminiscent of baked apples that onfidently stands up to a cured cheese without overpowering the subtle aromas of a young cheese.
