Gathering family and friends around the table is a pastime that knows no singular season or generation, and increasingly consumers want to know that the food they serve is made sustainably using all-natural ingredients. At the upcoming 59th annual Specialty Food Association Summer Fancy Food Show, Duchy Originals from Waitrose will be featuring their all-natural shortbread and biscuits line that’s ideal for versatile, gourmet year-round entertaining. Found at booth #2736, Duchy is exhibiting with Walkers Shortbread, the much loved and family-owned Scottish bakery that also makes Duchy Originals shortbread and biscuits.

    “Each Duchy product follows the Good Food Charter in that every product ‘Is Good,’ ‘Does Good,’ and ‘Tastes Good’,” explained President of Walkers Shortbread, Inc. Steve Dawson. “More and more consumers are looking for elegant and traditional entertaining options that are also kind to the environment, and the Duchy line offers just that.”

Founded by HRH Prince Charles the Prince of Wales, the Duchy Originals product line comprises four distinctive varieties of rich shortbreads and savory biscuits that are ideal for both everyday entertaining and special events. These include the Highland All Butter Shortbread, Lemon Shortbread, Stem Ginger Shortbread and Original Oaten Biscuits.

A versatile addition to a number of recipes, the shortbread can be used to make a crust for pies, tarts and cheesecake, as well as crumbled over ice cream or pudding. The Oaten Biscuits pair nicely with everything from cheeses and meats to savory and sweet jams and spreads for a year-round entertaining staple. Both the shortbread and biscuits complement a number of seasonal beverages like hot and iced teas, wine and cocktails.
