Artisan Biscuits and The Fine Cheese Co have launched two new parallel ranges of crackers called ’Toast’, which are 60% composed of fruits, nuts and seeds. Toast for Cheese comes in three varieties, each containing a fruit, a nut and a seed, and each developed to complement specific cheeses. For example, the Cherries, Almonds & Linseeds is recommended for blue cheeses; Dates, Hazelnuts & Pumpkin Seeds is suited to creamy cheeses; while Apricots, Pistachios & Sunflower Seeds is said to be ideal with delicate goats’ milk cheeses.

The Miller’s Toast range is designed to be more versatile. Hazelnut & Pecan Nutty ’Toast’ has been designed for patés; Cranberry & Raisin Fruity ’Toast’ for cheese, or as a breakfast snack; and Tomato & Chilli Spicy ’Toast’, for use with creamy dips.
