Afternoon Tea with Baxters and Michelin Chef Tom Kitchin

By | Jun 30, 2010

Baxters has teamed up with on of Scotland’s top Michelin Star chef , Tom Kitchin, to create a series of Afternoon Tea recipes that showcase the range of Baxters preserves and chutneys.

Tom has taken the Baxters philosophy to ‘Be Different, Be Better’ to create an inspired portfolio of simple yet attractive dishes for consumers to recreate at home. Baxters jams, especially their Scottish raspberry preserve, have been favourites at for years – straight out of the fridge on crusty bread or hot buttered toast. But these Afternoon Tea recipes are a novel twist, providing consumers with alternative ways of using Baxters in cooking – both as an ingredient and as the perfect accompaniment to sweet and savoury dishes.

Tom Kitchin is quoted as saying: “As a much treasured Scottish brand that is still family run, Baxters is a store cupboard essential. As a chef, it was an honour for me to be invited to experiment with Baxters products and mix them with fresh produce to showcase recipes that are easy to recreate at home. Each product in the Baxters portfolio has its very own provenance and sourcing story and taste great either on its own or as part of a dish.”

Baxters brand manager, Elaine Tewnion, responded “As a genuine champion of the Baxters name we are delighted to be working with the superbly talented Tom Kitchin on this campaign. The recipes he has created taste delicious and showcase new ways to use the Baxters chutney, beetroot and preserve ranges.”

Each of the 12 Afternoon Tea suggestions showcases one of Baxters Scottish made products:
