Hello. I'm getting married in a month and self-catering. I went to a Granger's a few weeks ago and one of the dishes was stracciatella with baked fennel - amazing, thinking about replicating it for my 'grazing table' (snigger - new posh word for buffet appaz). It came drizzled with olive oil which tasted fantastic - Grassy and fresh. I think without that it wouldn't be as good, so wondering if anyone have one like that which has been bought from a supermarket? I've got access to them all.

On a related note, I drank tangerine and mint cordial and want to replicate that as a soft drink. Thinking of using the monin's cordial - anyone tried it? And what other fancy pants soft drinks have you had that might be lovely to serve for those who aren't drinking?

Thanks in advance!

Not tried Monins Cordial, but this stuff tastes fancy for non drinkers, Thorncroft's detox cordial: www.amazon.co.uk/Thorncroft-Detox-Cordial-330-Pack/dp/B00HFSNIL8?tag=mumsnetforu03-21
Serve with mint and sparkling water as an ersatz non alcoholic Pimms.

Belzau do very nice olive oils and condiments. Their Verdemanda olive oil sounds like the flavour profile you are going for (grassy, lightly peppery). www.ocado.com/products/belazu-verdemanda-extra-virgin-olive-oil-399949011
