In December I went to the BBC Good Food Show Winter, and I found these three companies amongst the many others that were at the show. I have been really intrigued to try out these products to see how I can use them in the future. To showcase and review all three of these products I have made a Koko Dairy Free and Lime Sorbet, making sure to test the temperature using my new Thermapen.
I used the SuperFast Thermapen 4 by ETI to test the temperature of my sorbet, it’s super easy to use all you do to turn it on is open out the probe and it gives you a reading in 3 seconds, meaning it’s really useful throughout all stages of cooking. The Thermapen also has an autorotating display meaning whichever way you hold the thermometer you will be able to clearly see what temperature it says.
The Thermapen is lightweight and is easy to use, it’s even intelligent enough to have an automatic backlight when it gets dark. So can be used for those midnight cookie baking sessions! Also, the Thermapen is smart in saving battery by turning off when its set down, so you can have the perfect thermometer for even longer. I chose to have my Thermapen in red but you can get Thermapens in a wide range of different colours including; pink, purple, orange, and black. So it’s definitely worth checking out a Thermapen!
Koko Dairy Free
I tried a range of different yogurts from Koko Dairy Free at the BBC Good Food Show, so I was quite excited to receive 3 cartons of coconut milk from them, which can be used for baking or with breakfast as a healthy start to the day.
Koko Dairy Free is perfect as an alternative to milk or soya if you’re vegan, lactose intolerant, gluten intolerant, or just want to try something new and healthy! Koko Dairy Free also have a range of yogurts which are delicious and are my favourite dairy alternative yogurts. They also do a spread as an alternative to butter if you have been searching for something new and different. I used the Original Koko Dairy Free Coconut Milk as a base for my sorbet, as it has a lovely fresh, clean taste.
Ever since the BBC Good Food Show 2016 I have wanted to try some Supernature products; they make award-winning flavour infused cold pressed rapeseed oil. Supernature make so many different infused oils there is something to suit every taste and every dish, whether you like fresh flavours, herby flavours, or just something to add something extra to what you’re making.
Out of the gift boxes, I chose the Thai box because I know that I can use these flavours in multiple dishes, and they will be used quite often in the kitchen at home. Also, I do like exploring new flavours and trying new things so this seemed like the perfect gift box for me. The other gift boxes that Supernature do include a classic gift box and a herb gift box. I used a Lime Infused Oil in my sorbet to add some more flavour, and create a Thai inspired dessert.
These oils are definitely worth checking out and trying because they really will make your dishes stand out, and create a whole new level of flavour with just a few drops.
Using these products together I have made a delicious coconut and lime sorbet, perfect for when the weather starts to get warmer or as a palate cleanser at the end of a meal.
