SERIOUS CHEESE: MASCARPONE

Dear FOODIES,

MASCARPONE, originally from the northernmost mountainous region of Italy, is among the most deliciously versatile cheeses known to man.

When whipped with vanilla, sugar, and egg yolks, it forms the famously rich and creamy layer of tiramisu.

When added to paella, risotto, or mashed potatoes, it brings a new meaning to CULINARY DECADENCE.

Made from heavy cream whipped with citrus or tartaric acid, MASCARPONE adds superior texture and depth of flavor to any dish.

Lucky for you, DIRECT FRESH now carries an affordable and versatile MASCARPONE made by renowned Italian manufacturer GALBANI.

NEW PRODUCT: FRENCH BUTTER!!

Dear FOODIES,

As we all know, high quality butter is almost impossible to find here in Dhaka.  From shortages during hartals to hard-to-open briquettes that melt easily and add little richness to dishes, most of us have resigned to using oil for frying and baking.

Luckily for all of us, DIRECT FRESH now offers two delicious varieties of rich, creamy butter made from the milk of happy, healthy, french speaking cows born and raised in the beautiful Loire Valley.

WEEKEND TREAT: GOAT CHEESE!!

HAPPY THURSDAY, FOODIES!!

 We hope you have exciting plans for the weekend.  Looking for something delicious to celebrate sleeping in and spending time with friends and family?

We’ve got just the thing: CHEVRE GOAT CHEESE flown from PARIS, FRANCE.

CHEVRE 180g - Tk 399

Fresh cheese making techniques were brought to France in the 8th century by the SARACENS, who introduced goats and goat milk to the agrarian countryside.

Chèvre – which means “goat” in French – is now one of the most well known soft cheeses in the world.  Soft, creamy, and mild when young, Chevre becomes firm and tart as it ages over its 4 week shelf life.

Be sure to try this Chèvre with a crusty baguette or crumbled over a salad with avocado, dried fruit, and toasted nuts!

Enjoy!
