Do you ever find yourself wondering how to enhance your favorite foods? Classics like ketchup and mustard get boring and don’t work on a lot of dishes. That’s why we believe chutneys are a great condiment to have around: they use bold and bright flavors to enhance their main course counterparts. The rich and flavorful aspects of both chutneys and pâtés work in harmony – making them our pairing of choice this springtime.
Four Pairings for you to Try at Home:
1. Pheasant Rosemary Pâté + Spiced Plum Chutney
This pairing brings the holiday spirit to any time of the year. Bold, deep flavors on both ends make these two perfect to stand alone as appetizers.
2. Campagne + Tamarind Chutney
A tamarind chutney is one of the most popular, and its thick yet saucy texture makes it perfect for drizzling over an aged cheese or a pâté or spread onto a slice of bread. Its sweet and sour taste pairs especially well with our Pâté de Campagne which features pork and sherry. Enjoy with a bed of fresh greens, such as arugula or spinach.
3. Chicken Ballotine + Mango Pineapple Chutney
When paired correctly, sweet and savory are a marriage made in heaven. This pairing is one of those marriages. The bright citrus flavors of the mango pineapple chutney pair well with savory, lean chicken and the tropical flavors of our Chicken Ballotine.
4. Black Peppercorn Mousse + Cherry Tomato Chutney
The creamy texture of our Black Peppercorn Mousse is enhanced by the chunky texture of this savory cherry tomato chutney. Pair these two together on top of a burger, on a sandwich, or as an easy anytime snack with a slice of baguette.
