Spring Sunshine with St. Dalfour

April 29, 2022


Get that bank holiday feeling and bring some spring sunshine with St. Dalfour! Whether you’re planning a big family BBQ, a picnic with friends, or, if the weather is typically British, a simple sit down meal indoors – St. Dalfour have you covered so everyone can enjoy this May bank holiday!


If the weather allows it, many of us will be heading out in the garden this bank holiday for a barbecue. Removing that rain cover only to realise you didn’t bother cleaning the grill the last time you used it. Will we ever learn.

Here are a couple of barbecue based ideas we think you have to try – and a bank holiday weekend seems as good an excuse as any!

Barbecued Chicken Thighs with St. Dalfour Raspberry & Pomegranate Preserve 

Chicken pairs really well with sweet fruits! The balance between the sweet raspberry, pomegranate and the smoky chicken offers a succulent burst of flavour you simply have to try!

Salmon with a St. Dalfour Mango & Pineapple Preserve Salad

Salmon is quite a delicate fish, however, cooked on high heat on a BBQ really brings out the flavour and texture combinations they truly deserve! As it sunny and warm, a simple side salad with our Mango & Pineapple preserve offers a light, sweet accompaniment to an already delicate dish.

Long sunny days at the local park with friends and family are what bank holiday weekends are all about. Some of us may even decide to bring a picnic along with us to keep energy levels high before our eighth game of swing ball.
