Giardigiò Jams – Compote “La Divina”
Quince and star anise jam
Another way to enjoy quince both with sweet and savory dishes.
To combine with Blue cheese that of intense flavour and aroma, such as Roquefort cheese. Fresh cheese is a great combination too. When preparing bruschetta with Divina and fresh cheese, remember to serve them with a glass of Verduzzo wine.
Also, a combination of Divina and white meat – like poultry or turkey – is worth trying,: the outcome is an original and creative second course.
Jars: 100 gr., 200 gr.
Ingredients: Quince, star anise
Why combining cheese with jam or marmalade? It’s all about chemistry: cheese is almost completely sugar-free, so its complementary food are jams and marmalades. The result is a balanced mouthfeel. In order to pick the best combination, one must consider the type of milk that was used for the cheese – cow, goat or sheep – and the consistency – soft, semi-hard, cured or semi-cured.
When it comes to taste, a proper balance is the ultimate goal. Softer and sweeter cheese should be combined with sour marmalades and jams while strong and cured cheese should be combined with something sweet.
