Summer Tapas Ideas

Summer Tapas Ideas

Summer has arrived and socialising is back on the cards… and we couldn’t be happier! To celebrate, we’ve put together some mouth-watering summer tapas ideas.

If you didn’t know already, we adore entertaining and it’s partly what has inspired our food over the years .. and why we still eat so much of it!  It’s fresh, tasty and most importantly – ready to eat!  Simply open the packet, let the product breathe and come to room temperature and enjoy – which means less time cooking and more time having fun!

There are, of course, all of our classics – Smoked Salmon, Smoked Duck, Smoked ChickenSmoked Trout – which can be used for delicious canapes take a look at last month’s blog! and salads. There is also our scrumptious range of pâtés that will blow your guests away.  Made to Smokey Jo’s very own recipe and freshly prepared by our team in Crickhowell – a perfect and ridiculously easy starter served with warm sourdough toast and leafy greens.

What may not have caught your eye though is our mouth-watering range of artisan charcuterie:

And not forgetting the Semi-Dried Cooking Sausages, ideal for Spanish-style Tapas dishes – but these do require cooking for preparation.  Simply fry in a little olive oil either whole or sliced.

All of the beef, pork and venison is sourced with great care from either UK free-range farms or sourced sustainably from the wild. It is multi-award-winning charcuterie produced by our friends at Trealy Farm, dubbed “The best artisan charcuterie in the UK” by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

It really is quite delicious – even if we do say so ourselves. In this month’s special offer – sign up to our newsletter and spend at least £50 to receive a voucher code for a free pack of Fennel salami with your order.

Easy entertaining really doesn’t get much easier than this. Simply arrange the charcuterie on a sharing platter or board with some olives, cheese, and crudites and allow your guests to dig in. Deliciously moreish and gone in a second!

Another beautiful veggie option for a summer nibble or starter is our Teifi Halloumi. Cut into slices and fry in a pan until golden and serve with griddled peaches and some of our Very Chilli Jam – divine!
