with Emma Bridgewater and Market Deli
The Six Nations Rugby championship is over for 2016, and as avid England supporter, I’m delighted to say that England won the Grand Slam as well as the overall Six Nations Championship! Yesterday was billed as “Super Saturday” when ALL the final fixtures were played, and what better accompaniment to this wall-to-wall rugby viewing day can there be than wine, chips and dip. I whipped up today’s recipe for Bacon, Cheddar and Chive Cream Cheese Dip in FIVE minutes, served it in some beautiful Emma Bridgewater bowls along with a selection of Market Deli chips and crisps. Market Deli has partnered with Emma, who is a renowned British pottery maker, to create this special range of collectible serving bowls; perfect for serving Market Deli’s sharing bags which are ideal for social occasions, which a day of rugby was!
As part of a collaborative post with Market Deli and Emma Bridgewater, I was asked to create a new recipe for a dip, that would be the perfect accompaniment to their exciting and tasty range. Enter my recipe for Bacon, Cheddar and Chive Cream Cheese Dip, a decadent and very creamy dip made with English Cheddar cheese, Yorkshire cream cheese, smoked British bacon and freshly cut herbs from my garden, the perfect recipe to echo the delicious, premium snacks that Market Deli offers in a mouth-watering range of potato and pita chips, made and seasoned with the finest authentic ingredients and produce found in delicatessens across Europe and UK. And, the bowls I was sent to serve my dip and chips from, are just GORGEOUS; inspired by the same passion for authenticity, these exclusively designed serving dishes show off the range’s ingredients like garlic and pepper, in Emma’s iconic polka dot colour scheme.
I was lucky enough to be sent these lovely bowls as part of my collaboration, which are made in the UK, but you can collect these limited edition Emma Bridgewater serving bowls and dipping dishes by saving vouchers from the promotional sharing packs of Market Deli, until 31st May, and then you just redeem them on-line to receive your limited edition set of bowls for delectable snacking and dipping!

I served the Roasted Garlic with Mediterranean Herbs Pita Chips with my dip, and once they ran out, I liberated a packet of Cornish Mature Cheddar Potato Chips before we all devoured some Sweet Chilli and Dorset Sour Cream Pita Chips to mop up the remaining dip!
