Spoil your favourite cheese lover silly with this gorgeous gift of award winning tropical fruit conserves.
Your hamper comes with beautiful, ethically produced hand-printed batik napkins, wooden spoons and a bamboo basket. Awani designs these items in-house (your napkin pattern is a passionfruit flower) and we work with skilled craftspeople in Bali to make the batik and baskets in time honoured tradition. The Balinese are famed for creating everyday functional items of beauty and simplicity. We make our products in the same spirit with skill, attention to detail and a strong instinct for loveliness!
Here are descriptions of each of the tropical fruit conserves in this set. The cheese pairing suggestions are by no means exhaustive and there are undoubtedly many more variations to be discovered!
Tamarillo is also known as a tree tomato. The flavour characteristics in this unusual fruit are silky and sharp. As well as berry flavours, there are overtones of passionfruit. This fruit is plum-shaped, with deep purple and orange hues.
Tamarillo paired with stilton cheese is highly pleasurable! It is also delicious with a comte or other cows cheese with a similar texture.

Lime Marmalade with Fresh Ginger
The vibrant flavours of tropical lime blend with the heat and fragrance of young ginger to create a subtle, “layered” taste experience where lime evolves into warm ginger flavours. It’s a sublime transition, bringing together a taste from the east and a tradition from the west.
This marmalade pairs perfectly with a goats milk cheese like Tomme de Chevre

Balinese Tangerine Marmalade
Awani’s Balinese tangerine marmalade has a surprising and gentle citrus character. Delicate tangerine flavours unfold above a dense, bittersweet base, a “lady” marmalade. This tropical tangerine has a shiny green and orange skin. The Balinese eat them everyday and the fruit is also used to make a delicious, subtle and refreshing tangerine juice.
Excellent paired with a young brie

Guava Passionfruit Jelly
A fragrant and intensely fruity infusion of two delicate tropical fruit. We use wild purple passionfruit that grow in the cooler climate of the tropical highlands and fuse this with the delicious flavours of pink guava. The result is a startling fruity blend that is both familiar but unmistakable as an exotic flavour.
Pair with a soft, creamy dessert cheese like a ricotta or mascarpone
