Chef Rick Stein has partnered with the iconic Cornish company, Furniss of Cornwall, to create this seriously scrumptious range of savoury biscuits. Furniss are renowned for their traditional Cornish Fairings biscuits and other sweet treats, so this is their first ever savoury range and Rick Stein has certainly made sure the biscuits are made to his high standards using the best quality local ingredients.
These include a pure natural Cornish sea salt, creamy Cornish butter and prize-winning cheddar from the Davidstow Creamery in Cornwall. I tried the Cornish sea salt biscuits which had a lovely crunch to them and were packed with the savoury goodness of baked oats with both a hint of salt and sugar. You can really taste the quality of the ingredients, making them a wonderful accompaniment to cheese or even smoked Cornish mackerel or humus as suggested by Rick Stein. The attention to detail in the flavour means they’re even great on their own – a definite store cupboard essential!
The biscuits are available to buy in Waitrose stores across the UK and a selection of Tesco stores, priced at £1.39 per 170g pack.
