There are so many ways you can create moreish canapés, snacks, starters, or light meals using this soft, mild-tasting fresh cheese made from milk and cream. Here are just three of our favourites:

Go light and fresh

Simply spread Kiri cheese on crisp bread. Top with cucumber and salmon ribbons and garnish with a few caper berries.

Go sweet and crunchy

Dollop green fig preserve onto a block of cream cheese and sprinkle with chopped almonds. This is best served on slices of fresh baguette.

Go savoury and tangy

Layer slices of pickled onions, cocktail gherkins and earthy radishes and halved spicy pepperdews above a layer of cream cheese. Serve on your favourite kind of seed crackers.
