Continuing our search for Australian Artisan products for our new GOURMET SAVOURY GIFT BOX range and our Many Makers page in this website, we discovered a lovely selection of high quality, beautifully made Relishes, Chutneys and Tapenades from Berry on the South Coast of NSW.
Maxwells Treats, now well established, very much embody the spirit of Artisan Makers and Artisan Kitchens in Australia. Their passion for excellence is obvious and from our tastings, the clear balance of the ingredients between sweetness and savoury and sour and spicy is remarkable.
One of our tasters described it as a sharp, lifting, flavour freshness. Great kitchen skills indeed.
We tried the Olive Tapenade, a blend of Olives and Anchovies with perfect texture and clear taste and a superb Mango Chutney. All first class. Standouts were a Lime and Chilli relish with wonderful balance and a Tomato and Pear Relish, again beautifully flavour weighted and balanced.
Apologies if we are drifting into wine tasting speakt but Maxwells Treats products deserve the best descriptions for anyone interested in buying. Really, they are seriously good !
Maxwells Treats range is extensive, covering a wide variety of interesting and unusual products and from our limited tasting time, we imagine all are of the highest quality. It is worth checking out their website for the full range.
You will find Maxwells Treats in many specialist food stores and all products are available on line: www.treatfactory.com.au………..
