Whisper it quietly, there’s a foodie revolution taking place in Dorset. Not an angry mob, placard-waving revolution but a thoughtful foodie putsch being led by Paul Rostand and his small huddle of discerning biscovites. In these more enlightened artisanal times consumers crave meticulously handcrafted nibbles over the perfectly symmetrical, mass-produced conveyor belt biscuits that still clog up so many of the nation’s less uninspired biscuit barrels.
The Great British Biscotti Company offers a full repertoire of enticing flavour liaisons (of both a sweet and savoury persuasion) and a couple of thoughtful foodie formats, from the traditional dunking fingers to the more avant garde biscotti crouton. Such innovation means canapes, cheese boards, salads and soups (like tea & coffee) can now enjoy and extra indulgent biscotti twist.
