Did you know that ginger is a flowering plant with tall, narrow leaves and yellow flowers? The fiery spice with a distinctive, lemony aroma comes from the root of the plant. Originally from China, the plant spread to the Spice Islands and from there to India and Europe. Apart from giving our food a mouth-warming, delicious tingle, ginger spice is well known for its anti-inflammatory properties and is often recommended to ease queasiness and soothe the joints.
Complementing the fiery ginger are creamy walnuts. Dating back to 7000BC, walnuts are the oldest tree food known to man. The walnut was known as the 'Royal Nut' as it was often reserved for royalty. The clever walnut tree oozes chemicals into the soil which stops other plants from growing near it.
Cake & Cheese
Why not try a soft, luxurious, creamy blue-veined cheese with the Ginger Tingle? We love the mellow Yorkshire Blue with a peppery finish, or the sweet and nutty Stichelton from Nottinghamshire.
