Berries are a highly versatile fruit, they can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. When it comes to afternoon snacks or canapés everyone loves a cheese board and here at Y.V.Fresh we do to and have come up with our favourite cheese and fresh berry pairings for a new twist.
Blackberry: Stilton Blue, Manchego, Triple Creme, Camembert , Goat or Feta
