A Riverford Giveaway #25

Following on from my visit to Riverford a couple of weeks ago, I am very pleased to offer up a giveaway and no, it’s not a veg box. Riverford sell more than just vegetables: they sell chocolate both on their online and in their bricks and mortar shops,  Montezuma’s organic chocolate to be precise. You can follow Riverford on Facebook and Twitter.

Riverford are offering up an exclusive prize for Chocolate Log Blog readers. Sadly, even I didn’t get to sample this one – it’s just for one lucky winner.

  • Two 100g bars of Montezuma’s organic 73% dark chocolate
  • Two 100g bars of Montezuma’s organic 34% milk chocolate
  • Two 100g bars of Montezuma’s organic creamy white chocolate
  • A Riverford Farm Cook Book

Riverford Farm Cook Book

Luckily, CT bought me a copy of the book a couple of years ago, so I don’t feel too short changed. As you would expect from an organic vegetable farm, this is a recipe book all about vegetables. Written by Guy Watson and Jane Baxter, former head chef at the Riverford Field Kitchen, it celebrates British food and focuses on the fruit and vegetables that can be grown here in the UK. The chapters come in an A-Z format of fruit or vegetable, starting with apples and ending with turnips. As well as recipes, each chapter has some information on each crop including varieties, storage and preparation. This makes it super easy to find a recipe for that last celeriac lurking in the fridge or the bag of quinces a kindly neighbour presented to you and you haven’t a clue what to do with. Spiced celeriac with lemon is delicious, I know because I’ve made it. I adore membrillo, the famous Spanish quince cheese, but have not yet made my own. When I do, I’ll know where to go for the recipe.

The accompanying chocolate can be put to good use, as there are some recipes in the book using this most wondrous of ingredients. To my shame I haven’t yet made the Riverford Farm version of beetroot brownies, but I have made their Chocolate Courgette Cake which turned out really well despite me forgetting to add some of the sugar.

Riverford have kindly offered an exclusive prize of a Riverford Farm Cook Book and six 100g bars of Montezuma’s organic chocolate as a giveaway on Chocolate Log Blog.

    Ooh, tough question, but probably a soup. You can get such amazing, creamy textures from veggies like butternut squash & sweet potatoes.
