Tasty Tapas: Discover Unearthed

I don't know about you, but I love tapas. Maybe it's because I'm a bit of a grazer when it comes to food. I just can't commit to one big dish, and tapas lets me flirt with lots of different flavours without having to settle for just one option.

So when I received a lovely package of goodies from Unearthed, a groovy food company that specialises in bringing delicious continental foods to the UK, I was ready to cosy up with a bottle of wine and take my pick.

The three tapas dishes came complete with reusable terracotta bowls to cook them in - always a bonus for me. They're pretty foolproof to heat through in the oven in around twenty minutes, and the terracotta helps to keep the dishes warm while you sip your wine, wait for your pals to arrive or otherwise dither around the kitchen.

Pork meatballs were moist and succulent, with a sweet yet smoky chipotle sauce. The white bean tapas with manchego (or posh cheesy beans) were a bit average, but tasty (as cheesy things tend to be). Best of the lot was the moreish chorizo in mojo pepper sauce, a traditional Majorcan dish with zingy paprika and peppers. Watch out for the oil though (especially if you're in your best party frock). Our chorizo produced a projectile stream of paprika-hued oil when we stuck a fork in it, so probably best to prick them before you cook rather than risk redecorating the dining room!

Unearthed products can be found in Waitrose, or visit their website for more information on the range.
