The product has been used to make several hot drinks, including cappuccinos, lattes and hot chocolates, and has found great success with customers.

Anna Pearce and Tom Coleman, owners of Shenington-based Monkey Bean cafe, came up with the idea after discussions with two of its regular customers.

Idlicote couple Joseph and Rebecca Fossett established the UK’s first camel milk dairy in April this year.

Newsletter cut through the noise

The Monkey Bean cafe near Banbury brought an exotic touch to its menu by adding camel milk as an alternative to cow’s milk. (photo by Hélène Dubber)

After 20 years living off camel racing, camel trekking, television and movies, the couple turned to animal husbandry due to high demand from the public.

Joseph said: “People contacted us every week to ask if we were selling camel milk.

“They were telling us about all these amazing health benefits that they thought they had from milk, which prompted us to consider the idea of ​​producing it.

“We discussed the idea for a while but never got there, so when the lockdown hit and our camels couldn’t run or hike, we figured that would be the case. perfect opportunity to start. “

Growing up working in a circus, training lions, elephants and tigers, Joseph turned to camel breeding in Warwickshire.

The couple sell their milk for £ 20 a liter, more than 60 times the UK average farm gate price for cow’s milk at 32.5 pence.

This is in part due to the fact that camels produce only 2-3 liters of milk per day, compared to dairy cows which produce up to 60.

Rebecca said: “You can import camel milk from other countries, but you buy something that is already frozen or broken down into powder.

“Our camel milk is the only product in the country that is entirely raw and comes directly from the camel, which allows it to retain all of its vitamins and benefits. “

Just eight months after starting their camel herding journey, Joseph and Rebecca also started selling camel urine for £ 30 a liter, which is believed to have health benefits similar to milk. camel.

When Anna heard about their products, she wanted to offer camel milk as an option to her customers.

She said: “Joseph and Rebecca are regulars in the cafe and over the past year they have brought the camels here to promote their trekking business.

“When they told me they were going to start producing camel milk, I thought it might be a good addition to the menu, so we tried it all in one go.

“Camel milk has proven to be popular with customers and many people have come specifically asking for it, so we decided to start serving it more regularly. “

The cow’s milk alternative is often described as having a sweet, slightly salty and creamy taste.

Anna added: “You get that sharp separation between people who are adamant they’re not going to try it, and those who are up for something a little different.

“I was quite reluctant to try it at first, but it’s actually really cool.”

Nestlé Marketing Director Joyce Tan said in a statement Australians would definitely fall in love with the new line of goodies:

“The Bites range has become a treat in Australian households. We’re excited to bring these three new flavors to life. Whether you are entertaining friends, going to the movies or spending an evening, it will definitely be love at first sight! “

On the shelves this week we have the above Rolo Bites. For those unfamiliar with the cult favorite, Rolo Bites consist of runny, gooey caramel in a mini-cup of creamy milk chocolate. Think of them as Cadbury Dairy Milk Rolls with the extra toffee.

For reference, Rolo snacks have been around for quite some time in overseas markets, so you might have encountered them once or twice at an international confectionery shop, but now we Australians have easy access to them!

Allen’s Adds Dark Chocolate Option To Its Bite Line With New Mini raspberries with dark chocolate. The classic raspberry flavored lollipops are coated with dark chocolate.

Finally, there is also Allen’s Bites Chocolate Coconut Rough which is inspired by the famous Golden Rough. Coconut Bites consist of pieces of roasted coconut coated with creamy milk chocolate.

Kiwis are said to be among – if not the – the biggest ice cream eaters in the world, each of us carrying around 22 to 23 liters a year. So it’s no wonder that many of us consider ourselves experts in this field.

Travel stuffThe recent article on where to get the best ice cream in New Zealand sparked a wave of alternative suggestions from readers, a selection of which we’ve featured here. It seems fair enough to say that wherever you walk in Aotearoa this summer, you won’t have to go far for quality ice cream. Even if you can’t really eat cream.

Ambrosia Hazelnut Gelato from Gelato Junkie in Dunedin.

Ambrosia Hazelnut Gelato from Gelato Junkie in Dunedin.

Gelato Junkie, Dunedin

This Dunedin ice cream parlor’s new ‘Jaffa Cake’ flavor might just be the best thing since Vogel’s sliced ​​bread: milk chocolate topped with chunks of chocolate brownie soaked in Cointreau, orange marmalade and chocolate chips. White and Black. You can even get a vegan version.

Travel stuff Reader Mark described the place as “fantastic,” noting that it has plenty of vegan and gluten-free options. Other flavors include tiramisu, hazelnut, chocolate orange, lemon meringue, and coconut yogurt. A recent Google reviewer described it as “pretty much the best place for ice cream in Dunedin, and not for lack of choice.” Vegan Flavors are the best vegan ice cream I’ve found anywhere on the South Island. And with the Patti’s & Cream food truck just down the street in St Clair Beach, that means something.

Hoops and Spoons, Waikato

The co-founder of this Te Awamutu-based gem has been making dosh donuts since the early 1980s, so she’s pretty much New Zealand’s unofficial donut queen. Marion, the aforementioned royal donut, and her mate Dona started selling their winning combo of donuts and ice cream to Pirongia in 2016, soon investing in a food truck to take them to the general public. They were so spoiled that the couple quickly passed their first store and now produce a huge range of ice cream, sorbets and donuts at their Te Awamutu and Hamilton East stores and their traveling food trucks.

Some of the more interesting ice cream flavors include “All Whites” (white chocolate and macadamia), Boysenberry Cheesecake, and Jaffa Crunch, while sherbets include feijoa, pear, and golden kiwi. The donut of the day is the “Santa’s Snack”: a fatty hoop donut filled with vanilla cream and a chocolate flake and sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. Reader Kerry loves that “they make their own ice cream in a wide variety of flavors” as well as their “super donuts”.

These Wellington Ice Wizards have won numerous awards for their Italian-style confections, which include an iced version of Ferrero Rocher (Bon Bon Rocher) chocolate, biscotti (a more sophisticated version of cookies and cream) and “Indian Summer” yogurt, lightly spiced with cardamom, ginger and turmeric.

One reader described the flavor of Indian summer as “fantastic”, adding that the vegan chocolate sorbet is “top notch” as well.

“Add in a few peanut butter flavors and you have a utopian taste,” they said.

Another said they often went to one of Kaffee Eis’ three outlets (at Courtney Place, Cuba Street and TSB Bank Arena) after dinner, describing the gelato as “a party thing in the town. stuffy”.

Real Fruit Ice Cream Fuse, Christchurch

A back injury that forced Logan Whyte to give up his landscaping job saw him embark on a mission “to take real fruit ice cream to another level.”

Finding a food truck with a bright orange cone-shaped sign on TradeMe in 2017, Logan and his partner Tahlia began experimenting with flavors such as peanut butter, Nutella, and sweet and sour cherry yogurt, have replaced the traditional chocolate flake with a slice of berries and cookie. , and have developed their own quickset sauce using Whittaker chocolate. It worked – wonders. So much so that Logan now runs the food truck full time and Tahlia lends a helping hand when she quits her day job as a science teacher in high school and on weekends.

Customers can create their own dreamy frozen dessert, choosing a base of vanilla or chocolate ice cream or frozen yogurt, another flavor (with options including a blend of berry, mango and passion fruit ), toppings such as Oreos, nuggets and peanuts, and dark, milk or white chocolate sauce.

“The trailer is parked in Cashmere on the bank of the Heathcote River under tall sprawling trees,” Logan explains. “We love being part of the local community and have developed an incredibly loyal following.”

White’s Dairy claims to offer Auckland’s biggest ice cream.

White’s Dairy, Auckland

This Devonport dairy’s 10-scoop whoppers draw foodies from all over the town of Sails. Owner Nilesh Jogia said he saw some complete cones in 10 minutes.

“But 10 scoops is a bit extreme for most people, so we’re making an eight scoop version which is a little more manageable.” If eight scoops doesn’t seem manageable either, it’s okay to order just one or a few scoops.

Reader Romit described White’s as “the best of the North Shore, having sold Auckland’s best and largest ice cream to generations of Kiwis for decades.” Essentially, if big old-fashioned ice cream is your jam, White’s is the place to be.

Bradshaws, Hawke’s Bay

The place to pick up blocks of ice in Hawke’s Bay according to reader Judy, who urged us to visit this artisanal producer near historic Vidals House on the outskirts of Havelock North.

Made with fruit grown in local orchards and, in some cases, coconut milk, the ice packs are vegan and free of gluten, dairy, preservatives (and therefore probably guilt too).

The range of fresh fruit includes real lemonade, raspberry and lime, and black dory, while coconut milk options include chocolate, strawberry, and raspberry.

Poppy’s Handmade Ice Cream Parlor & Cafe, Kaikōura

This Kaikōura glacier should be a local attraction as famous as the whales, according to more than one reader.

“Poppy’s homemade ice cream is to die for! The best flavor is hokey pokey, ”said one.

“And it’s made with eggs and cream and real flavors,” added another.

Starting from a small trailer, Poppy’s now offers some 27 rotating flavors, some of the most popular of which include Triple Chocolate, Lemon Creme, Cream Cookies, Dark Cherry and White Chocolate, Apple and Rhubarb and Turkish delicacies. All ice cream and frozen yogurt are made with real fruit on site, and there are dairy-free and vegan options.

Think of a delicious variety of cheeses, cold cuts, colorful fresh fruits, crunchy nuts, assorted dips and more. This is what you need to make a charcuterie board.

The word “charcuterie” translates to “a charcuterie store”. A classic French way of presenting meat and cheese, a typical charcuterie board would include various meat products, such as ham, salami, sausages, bacon and prosciutto, pickled or raw seasonal vegetables, fresh fruit and lots of cheese.

When it comes to making a charcuterie board, you can start by choosing a good mix of soft and hard cheeses that will meet the preferences of the guests. Options like Parmesan, Brie, Gruyere, Cheddar, Mozzarella, Ricotta, and Cream Cheese help you play around with different flavors and textures. Other essential condiments for a charcuterie board are dips, such as hummus, sweet and savory marmalades and jams, and honey.

However, a well-made charcuterie board isn’t just about the ingredients, but also how you present them on the platter. Thus, a wooden serving board or a large cutting board should be adorned with meats, fruits, vegetables, dips and cheeses, ensuring that there is no overcrowding. Many prefer to use parchment paper for the ingredients and small bowls for the dips, which makes the table more visually appealing. Finishing touches like a garnish of fresh herbs also add to the flavor.

Although charcuterie has its roots in French cuisine, the concept has reached other parts of the world and has become more popular than ever. Each region has helped shape the charcuterie board with its local cuisine. For example, while a Greek mezze platter exudes versatility with pita bread, hummus and tzatziki, a Mexican platter makes a great spread of cheeses like cotija, manchego and queso de cabra and guacamole dips. , salsa and pico de gallo.

However, the best thing about a charcuterie board is that it looks like a do-it-yourself (DIY) serving board and requires little preparation or cooking time. In fact, sometimes there is no cooking involved at all.
An easy way to have something for everyone in a room full of guests, charcuterie boards make a perfect appetizer for any occasion.

Mediterranean mezze board

As mentioned earlier, there are many cultures and traditions that have influenced the making of a charcuterie board. The Mediterranean mezze plateau is a classic example of such an effect. A mix of Mexican specialties like falafel, kebabs, dolmas and more, it offers a variety of cheeses and dips, including hummus, tzatziki, and baba ganoush.

Round off the ingredients with an assortment of pita bread, cherry tomatoes, olives, dill pickles, stuffed mozzarella, peppadews stuffed with goat cheese, feta cheese and tabbouleh.

You can garnish with parsley or thyme with a generous drizzle of olive oil. Give it a non-vegetarian twist by adding meats like chicken and beef kebabs, depending on your guests’ preferences.

Filled with cheesy goodness and healthy appetizers, such as veggies, dried fruit, bread, nuts, and pistachios, this one is an epic charcuterie board idea.

For the flavorful spread, include grilled steak, summer meatballs and sausage, plus deli options.

To make a fondue you will need to mix and match cheeses like Swiss with Gruyere or Aged Cheddar with blue and grated Gouda. Once you’ve found your favorite variety, rub the inside of the fondue pot with garlic and add a cup of wine, beer, or chicken broth. Once it simmers, add the cheese, stirring constantly until it is incorporated into the liquid. Garnish with salt, pepper and nutmeg and serve hot.

Add a jar of honey to combat the nervousness of the cheeses. There is no rule to make fondues only with those we have mentioned; experiment with other hard cheeses if you like.

For a touch of sweetness, add chocolates, churros, marshmallows and fresh fruit.

However, it is important to keep in mind not to clutter the table. If there is little space after placing the fondues, use two deli boards so that all the ingredients are visible.

Here’s how to make a Swiss cheese fondue.

Vegan charcuterie board

A charcuterie board doesn’t have to be all about meats and cheeses. The vegan cheese boards are equally delicious and full of variety.

Go for dairy-free versions of smoked ricotta and cream cheese if you prefer soft cheese over vegan hard cheese options like gouda, blue, and cheddar. They will pair extremely well with nuts like walnuts, Marcona almonds, pistachios, and crunchy fresh vegetables available at your local grocery store.

Cucumbers, zucchini, snow peas, roasted cauliflower, cabbage and carrots accompanied by vegan brie and a drizzle of vegan Dijon mustard will make this mouth-watering charcuterie board.

You can add a touch of smoky flavors to the board with smoked peppers, olives and pickles. Plant-based meat options, spicy tofu, and vegan dips as condiments will set this vegan cheese board apart from the best.

  • Flavors will drop in major supermarkets and independent retailers on January 1










Cadbury’s has released two new candy bars for the new year, including Cherry Ripe Layers and Picnic Layers.

The decadently rich new chocolate bars are inspired by classic flavors customers know and love, but with a modern twist.

Both products contain three layers of indulgent chocolate encased in a domed chocolate shell for a unique sensory experience.

The line will hit shelves for $ 2 apiece on January 1, 2022

Cadbury’s released two new candy bars for the new year, including Cherry Ripe Layers and Picnic Layers

Cadbury’s Picnic Layers are filled with layers of gooey caramel, peanut-flavored sweet cream and crunchy peanut chunks coated in a milk chocolate shell, while layers of ripe cherry include layers of Iconic jelly of ripe cherry, coconut cream and pieces of coconut encased in an Old Gold dark chocolate shell.

The line will hit shelves for $ 2 apiece on January 1, 2022.

“We know how much Australians love Cadbury’s chocolate and we’re excited to introduce Cadbury’s Cherry Ripe and Picnic Layers, a new line of decadent chocolate bars inspired by the classic flavors we all love, taken to another level of indulgence.” , vice president of marketing for Cadbury ANZ, said Paul Chatfield.

In early December, a foodie believed he had stumbled upon Cadbury’s “dirty secret” in their popular line of Santa Claus chocolates.

Victorian man Jarrod Bell thinks Santas are just Easter bunny chocolates wrapped in Christmas foil – and he looks like he’s right.

In a TikTok video, the young man calls out to chocolatiers – pointing out a similarity in their Santa’s shape to Easter chocolate.

Easter bunny chocolate is very popular

But the Victorian man believes it's Christmas chocolate too

In the photo, on the left, the standard Easter bunny, on the right the undressed Santa Claus.

“Now is it just me or is it very clearly the Easter bunny mold with a picture of Santa Claus,” he asked in the video, while holding the chocolate.

“Cadbury, what are you doing?” He asked indignantly.

He then went through the company’s other Christmas chocolates, giving a thumbs up before buying one of the Santas to test his theory.

He brings Santa Claus home where he tears the packaging in front of the camera.

“This is very clearly an unmute rabbit,” he asserts – using a “confirmed” sticker.

The video has been viewed over 13,000 times but appears to divide TikTok users.

Some people thanked the young man for “exposing the truth”, while others did not understand why he was so mad.

“You have to get rid of the Easter chocolate somehow,” one woman said.

“They literally look like they have hair on them, definitely rabbits, I bought two,” laughed another.

A woman said she thought the same when the chocolates hit shelves in September.

Others said they weren’t sure if the mold looked like Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny and called it “terrifying” instead.

Cadbury declined to comment on the matter.

Food historian explains growing interest in camel milk https://nestleeuropeanchocolate.com/food-historian-explains-growing-interest-in-camel-milk/ Mon, 27 Dec 2021 09:35:17 +0000 https://nestleeuropeanchocolate.com/food-historian-explains-growing-interest-in-camel-milk/ The Christmas basket we received this year had an unusual and exotic delicacy.

The Christmas basket we received this year had an unusual and exotic delicacy. There was a box containing handcrafted, single-origin camel milk chocolates. Dark chocolates came in different flavors and were incredibly appealing, especially those fortified with nuts and coffee beans.

Truth be told, we tasted camel milk on a visit to Bikaner a few years ago, but we didn’t really fall in love with it due to its slightly salty, slightly sour and tangy taste. But the bite this time did what the initial sip couldn’t.

For centuries, camel’s milk has been a staple diet for people who shared the harsh desert habitat with the animal. Traditionally eaten fresh (not boiled) or in fermented form, it has also been used in traditional medicine to treat a wide range of illnesses from tuberculosis to gastroenteritis. What then explains the sudden revival of interest in camel milk?

The pandemic has sparked interest in superfoods that boost immunity, and camel milk appears to be a perfect fit. Camel milk producers claim their supply contains five times more vitamin C and 10 times more iron than cow’s milk.

They also cite scientific studies which have found higher levels of sodium, sodium, potassium, zinc, iron, copper, manganese, niacin than in cow’s milk, considered the gold standard in India. (However, they concede that the levels of thiamine, riboflavin, folacin, vitamin Bt12, pantothenic acid, vitamin A, lysine, and tryptophan were relatively lower than those found in cow’s milk.)

Camel milk is low in fat but with a high percentage of unsaturated fatty acids, it is described as antimicrobial, antioxidant, antihypertensive, antithrombotic and more. Not all claims have been proven by laboratory tests and it is advisable not to treat camel milk as a broad spectrum miracle cure.

What should not be overlooked is that it appears to have properties that can significantly help control blood sugar levels and fight insulin resistance.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, a specialized UN agency, issued a cautious certificate that “From all the data presented, it is clear that the camel produces nutritious milk for consumption. human.

Those concerned about the state of the environment argue that camel milk production is more sustainable than dairy cattle farming and promises to fight malnutrition globally.

Today, camel’s milk creates ripples far beyond the desert regions of Arabia, Bactria and India.

Camels reached Australia in the mid-19th century, and Afghan camel drivers helped explorers map an expanse of arid desert nearly 3,000 kilometers from Darwin in the north to Adelaide in the south. Today their population exceeds one million with camels roaming the wilderness and efforts to slaughter them have not been successful. Enterprising Australians turned to camel breeding for milk production and export.

Stricter food and drug differentiation laws in the United States had in the past inhibited the marketing of camel milk. Consumption of raw milk was considered risky and unpasteurized camel milk was taboo. Advances in food processing and packaging technology have overcome most of these problems.

Chefs around the world are experimenting with this exotic ingredient to create irresistibly tempting foodie dishes and are designing products for the F&B industry that will soon cease to be a niche product – a passing trend – and may well claim a significant share of health. mass food market.

Michelin-plated Indian chef Nishant Choubey uses camel milk tofu and never tires of telling his East Asian guests that people with lactogenic intolerance are safe to indulge in it.

Aadvik, the pioneering Indian company that developed artisan chocolates, also produces camel milk powder which can be reconstituted as needed and milkshakes flavored with camel milk ghee. Iconic Amul also markets camel milk as a special “health benefit” product.

The “desert ship” in the years to come may well be identified as the “mobile dairy farm!”
