Penchant de Fromage or cheese addiction is something I know well. In my years since moving to South Australia, the abundance of incredible cheeses (and wines) has fuelled my guilty savoury pleasure, and the creation of CheeseFest 7 years ago has done nothing to abate my desires. Well it’s that time of year again, with the hugely popular CheeseFest cheese and wine festival hitting Adelaide this weekend, and if you’re anything like me, the next few days are for gloves-off, mouth-watering indulgence.
Cheese, of course, is always made better with a great accompaniment, so it’s no surprise that local family-owned cracker business Tucker’s Natural is on board for another year at CheeseFest.
The Tucker family has been in the food business, nationally and internationally, for decades, so when they couldn’t find what they wanted to eat on the supermarket shelves, they knew they could make their own – adapting their handmade home kitchen recipe. Now they produce award-winning savoury Gourmet Crackers and sweet Dessert Biscuits, Gourmet and Wholegrain Bites, Multifibre Snacks, Dippers and Fruit Pastes.
Nobody wants to eat preservatives or artificial flavours – so Tucker’s don’t put them in their products. They also decided to make their products yeast, MSG, GMO and soy free, and as low as possible in salt and sugar as well.
Tucker’s Natural are the driving force behind the Gourmet Goodie Bags at the Royal Adelaide Show (think amazing show bag packed full of local produce for a fabulously low price), so it came as no surprise that they’ve put together another great pack, this time for Cheesefest.
The Tucker’s Natural Picnic Trail equips cheese lovers with everything they need to explore, taste, relax and enjoy Australia’s best cheese festival.
The trail pack includes:
- A premium carry picnic rug
- Cheeseboard and knives
- 2 x 110g packets of Tucker’s Natural gourmet crackers (choice of 4 flavours)
- 1 x 50g tub of Tucker’s Natural Fruit Paste (choice of 2 flavours)
- 2 x $10 Cheesefest tokens, to be redeemed at any cheese maker’s stall for product(s)
- Tucker’s Natural large carry bag
Start by collecting your Tucker’s Natural Picnic Trail pack from the Tucker’s Natural stand, taste, meet and sample your way around 25 artisan cheese makers, select your favourite cheeses, then pick your spot to relax and enjoy a luxurious picnic experience with live entertainment from the Tucker’s Natural Main Stage.
For only $50, this is the essential Cheesefest package for 2014 (plus it’s actually valued at $85)!
The Trail pack can be pre-ordered online here http://cheesefest.com.au/#!/whats-on/saturday-tuckers-natural-cheese-trail or purchased on the day from the Tucker’s Natural stand.
