I think that Emma Bridgewater is one of Britain’s national treasures. Over the years I’ve collected quite a few of her pieces. There is an Emma Bridgewater shop opposite my hairdresser and 50% of the time after my “do”, I’ll pop in and buy myself, or someone else a present. I had a mug personalised for Ed one Valentine’s day, a limited edition Jubilee mug featuring the Thames regatta, and one of the iconic London skyline mugs, as well as everyday coffee cups, and a tea pot. If you look through the blog, you will see that I use Emma Bridgewater products on a regular basis. They look great, and have a certain timeless style about them.
Market Deli – the premium range of snacks by Walkers, have partnered with Emma Bridgewater, who has designed a limited edition set of chip and dip bowls inspired by the iconic polka dot range, and the flavours of the new snacks.
Market Deli has a range of potato and pita crisps flavoured with deli ingredients. The seven flavours in the range include Roasted Garlic with Mediterranean Herb, Cornish Mature Cheddar, Sweet Chilli with Dorset Sour Cream and Sweet Roasted Red Pepper with English Tomato. The large sharing bags are perfect to eat with friends. Served with a dip, they make the perfect appetiser before a mid week supper, or for settling down to watch a film.
The limited edition Emma Bridgewater sets will be available to shoppers who collect tokens from promotional packets of the Market Deli sharing packets until the end of May this year. (Tokens on Promotional packs will be available in supermarkets such as Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Co-op RRP £2.19).
I’ve made a simple, but very delicious sour cream, red pesto and sun dried tomato dip to go with the Roasted Garlic with Mediterranean Herbs pita chips. The dip uses everyday ingredients and can be whizzed up in seconds.

One of my all-time favourite dips is bagna cauda, and I think this would work very well. Or baba ghanoush would be ideal for me! I’m such a fan of EB – never been to the factory before – hence me entering!
Oh bagna cauda – how lovely!
100g natural Fromage Frais
100g sundried tomato pesto
1 green chilli finely chopped
I like to combine the flavours of Mango, butterbean and dill.
Ooh Helen, that looks so moreish! The sun is shining here and I have tasty thoughts of summer so I’d have to knock up a summery dip perhaps using feta cheese, sundried tomato and maybe some basil.
Pistachio and courgette dip – blast in a whizzer lovely green and smooth
I quite like a refreshing dip so I mix yogurt with lemon juice, fresh coriander, ground coriander and seasoning. Sometimes I add a little cumin to give it more of a bite!!
Now don’t be too quick to judge this one, it is very seventies but trust me it really is good – mix a few tablespoons of dry onion soup powder with cream cheese and sour cream – it is great with veggies, crisps and Market Deli
cheese chillin roulette
make a thick cheese sauce as normal and add chopped chillies of various strengths and add a small amount of a very hot chillie like scotch bonnet and then take it in turns to dip
Red Pepper and Chickpeas; shoosh together a jar of roasted red peppers eith some drained chickpeas and a smidge of smoked pimentón to taste. Add some olive oil to get the consistency you want (or water if you are watching the calories)
Mango cream dip
I small tub of cream cheese, stir in mango chutney to taste, fresh slithers of red chilli and a squeeze of lime juice
I’d whip up my special avocado feta dip with, avocado, feta, lemon juice, garlic, salt and pepper!
I like to make a refried beans dip. I use haricot beans and slow cook them with water, onions, garlic and seasoning. When they are all cooked I puree them and add fresh coriander just before serving. Delicious and very healthy too.
I love baba ghanoush for it’s garlicky hit and ease of preparation. I rather like Emma Bridgewater too!
Roasted butternut squash, toasted chick peas with soured cream, middle eastern herbs and spices, pureed then seasoned to taste
Blue cheese dip is my absolute favourite:
300g soured cream
150g danish blue cheese, crumbled
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
Spiced Beetroot dip- Roast the beetroots and some garlic cloves until soft, then blend with toasted cumin seeds, creme fraiche and season to taste. It makes a lovely earthy, substantial dip perfect for winter time.
I love a spicy black bean houmous dip. Mix black beans with chipotle pepper, olive oil, lime juice and garlic. I think it would go well with the Roasted Garlic with Mediterranean Herb Market Deli crisps.
Simple peanut butter, crunchy always! Home made though
Chorizo, tomatoes, chillis for a spicy mexicano feel.
fromage frais and basil

Orange and coriander dip:
Kind of like a dressing. But I like to add mashed avocado in order to make a thicker tasty dip.
1/2 cup coriander, 1 orange, 1 spring onion, 1 small chilli, salt and pepper to taste, 1 avocado mashed, 2 tbsp of olive oil. Blend and munch
I like orange and nuts so perhaps squished fresh lovely oranges and pistachio nuts drizzled in olive oil would be nutty and fresh? Just like me lol
I make a dip from creamed swwetcorn, grated cheese, sour cream and spring onions which I think would be fab with the Sweet Chilli with Sour Cream crisps
Miss Jane Denly
I love half Creme Fraiche, half Mayonnaise, diced red/orange/yellow Peppers, diced Cucumber and a good dollop of Sweet Chilli Sauce-enough to suit your personal taste. Whizz together for a smooth dip or serve as a chunky dip! Delicious!
Love greek yogurt, cucumber, chives, coriander, green chillies and lime juice
I am addicted to carrots at the moment so been experimenting with different ways of using it from juices, salads, dips etc. Here’s one I like especially if wanting something a little spicier
4 large carrots
2tbsp olive oil
1tsp ground cumin
Juice 1 lemon
½ tsp harissa paste
Cook the carrots then add everything to a food processor till smooth
Got to be something creamy to go with the crunch… So a nice guacamole would be brilliant… I like to pair mind with salsa, so I think if go this route.
With the sea salt and ground black pepper tortilla chips:
Chop a small onion and a clove of garlic
Fry the onion in sunflower oil until see through.
Use one or two tins of organic black beans (drained) with a tablespoon or two of water, and chicken bouillon, and a handful of fresh coriander, and blend in a blender. I have used a strip of bacon or two before as well.
Add the mixture into the pan, with chopped garlic, and saute until the paste thickens.
This is a dip reminiscent of my days in Guatemala and oh, so delicious. Top with your favourite chili sauce mixed with greek yoghurt in the bowl. Yum!
Laura @ Kneadwhine
I made a courgette based dip a couple of years ago but haven’t made it since. Perhaps I should give it another go.
I love creamy dips or spicy dips. Guacamole is also a favourite!
White bean , garlic & Rosemary with freshly ground pepper to season

Jemma @ Celery and Cupcakes
Such beautiful crockery! Emma Bridgewater has the most wonderful quirky designs. Really loving the use of white beans in your dip too. I get stuck in a rut with things like this and always turn to chickpeas.
I find chickpeas are really unreliable in consistency. White beans seem to make a far softer dip.
Charlie @ The Kitchen Shed
Yummy! This looks great. A brilliant way to use up all the cannellini beans in my kitchen cupboards!
Carrot & coriander hummous – lovely dip
broad bean and parmesan
I love my homemade guacamole. I mash an avocado with some lemon juice, then add a little chipotle paste (very hot, but also slightly smokey) and some tomato relish. Mix them all together and you have a spicy, tasty guacamole dip.
Love homemade houmous recipe, given to me by my vancouver friend Amber as a leaving present. Great gift that keeps on giving
Bintu | Recipes From A Pantry
My dip would have to be a mash of plantain, sweet potato and bacon.
Becky - Munchies&Munchkins
I am a dipper by nature and I often try fancy or complicated dip recipes which are always pretty good. If I just have a spur of the moment I need me some Market Deli crisps and dip feeling though I would go with a trusted favourite. Blend 2 tbsp of a good quality chutney into a standard pack of cream cheese or pot of sour cream depending on your preference then add dried chilli flakes to taste . You can play about with the ratio of chutney to cream and see what works best for you. I love to use Ballymaloe tomato relish.
Your red pesto dip looks delicious.
Your dip looks gorgeous! I’ll definitely have a go at making that. My dip is Corny Dippers.
You combine: a finely chopped red pepper, small chopped onion, dash of lemon juice and a small tin of sweetcorn with a small tub of Philadelphia (or similar!) and a small pot of soured cream.
I can’t tell you how gorgeous it is!
Love dips but sour cream and chive is a favourite
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy
I love bean dip and I would happily put pesto on everything, so this sounds right up my street.
Bean dips rock. So so easy too.
Boursin with a bit of lime.
Mint and yoghurt with a pinch of chillie powder
I make a dip of roast carrots, butter beans, tahini, parsley, coriander, lime juice and Moroccan spice mix, all blitzed with the hand blender, and add a bit of water or olive oil if too thick.
I must admit this is not my own creation – I found this somewhere on the web a while ago but now make my own modified version.
Great for parties, dip with flatbread or crudités and it will keep your vegan friends happy, too.
Sour cream, (strong) cheese & pineapple. well seasoned with black pepper.
Following all my travels and cooking sessions, my favourite dip has a strong Indonesian influence and is a delicious peanut sauce with peanuts, garlic, chilies, coconut milk, sugar, sweet soy sauce, lime juice, lime leaves and fried shallots!
I love a spicy black bean dip with fresh green chillies!
Mine would be my recently created Arbroath Smokie & Wild Garlic Pate, thinned down a wee bit with cream to make it more of a dippy consistency http://www.foodiequine.co.uk/2016/03/arbroath-smokie-and-wild-garlic-pate.html
Pea, mint and chilli – fresh taste but with a bite!
I make a Kidney Bean dip, it can also be made with black eyed peas and well probably with any bean. Fry spring onions and garlic and red fresh chillis until soft, add fresh tomatoes and kidney beans and warm through. Then puree all the ingredients. It is lovely with chips.
peppers,garlic and chilli
I like cheesey, herby dips
I usually make a sour cream & chive dip, I usually like something quite simple.
I just mix sour cream with fresh chives, a squeeze of lemon, a little crushed garlic, a pinch of sugar & salt, I always best when it’s been left overnight :)
Spinach and Artichoke dip is always a winner in our house. Chopped artichoke hearts, spinach, onions, garlic all mixed together with parmesan and sour cream, salt and pepper. Can be served cold or warmed under the grill with some mozzarella sprinkled over the top to make it lovely and gooey! Sometimes we add a little paprika or cayenne to give a little boost!
Great served with home made nachos or pitta breads
Feta and Sun-Dried Tomato Dip
Fresh Broad Bean and herb dip
broad beans, parsley, coriander, green chillies, garlic, cumin,good olive oil ( serve with thinly sliced crispy fried onions and Market Deli ) #delidishes
Blue Cheese and Sundries Tomato dip.
I’d make Parmesan and Artichoke dip. I had something similar in Canada and it is so addictively good!
Essentially combine equal parts in a food processor Parmesan, drained artichokes, mayonnaise, then salt & pepper, 1 clove garlic and wilted spinach (optional).
You could always make this a hot dip by adding jalapenos instead of spinach!
And you can substitute mayonnaise for cream cheese or quark for a lower fat option.
A lovely homemade garlicy/chili hummus.
My Sudanese friend showed me how to make a dip from red pepper hummus, natural yoghurt, hot sauce (according to taste) and a drizzle of olive oil and paprika on the top. No word of a lie…. I eat this with everything!!!! From my mum’s homemade onion bhajis to chopped up raw crudites.
Avocado and bacon seasoning
Love cream cheese andchive
Would have to be hummous and tzatsiki to remind me of Greek holidays
Love Mexican sour cream dip
I love to make a peanut dip to use with savoury items by spicing it up, I use smooth peanut butter and add in lime, soy sauce, brown sugar, freshly chopped ginger, paprika and onion powder. If needed I thin it down with some stock and whizz it up with a stick blender
I like mashed avocado, lime juice, coriander with a pinch of salt, mixed into a creamy dip with water.
HOUMOUS WITH SUNDRIED TOMATOES AND A GLUG OF OLIVE OIL AND A NICE LARGE GLASS OF WINE!!
I love making a rough pesto using basil, olive oil, pinenuts and parmesan and mixing this through some cooked and mashed peas with some cream fraiche rippled through – Pesto Pea dip! Gorgeous and looks fabulous set against the colours of EB pottery :)
Love the sound of your dip!! My favourite dip is a simple one – cream cheese, pesto and some sundried tomatoes. Its delicious with carrots dipped in and would go very well with crisps!
Aubergine puree with pomegranate seeds
Simple Hummus Recipe.
One can of chickpeas, drained
splosh of olive oil
wee bit grated garlic, (or a big bit if that is how you like it)
wee bit onion powder
wee bit salt
wee bit lemon juice
wee bit cumin.
Don’t bother with the tahini – it doesn’t bring a lot to the party. Try various amounts of “wee bit” till you get what you like. Mix in a food processor and Bob is your mother’s brother.
Lovely chunky Salsa – easy to make and yummy
BLT Dip using crispy bacon, avocado, and chopped lettuce and tomatoes, with mayo. Serve with crusty bread and

2tbsp lemon juice
1.5 tbsp tahini

Great BBQ weather dip – cream cheese and Greek yogurt with grated extra mature cheddar cheese – add a local beer of your choice along with a chopped up spring onion and bacon bits. Finally some Dijon mustard and a little Worcester sauce. Yummy
I love a mixed bean dip – especially refried beans
My current favourite is a wonderful scotch bonnet houmous. It is absolutely delicious with a lovely flavour and unbelievably not too hot! Make houmous in the usual way but also blend in scotch bonnet peppers to taste. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.
Sour Cream and caramelised onion would taste great with the market deli crisps
I would try making a dip by blitzing cottage cheese and tuna, adding some natural yoghurt and a little lemon juice and then seasoning with black pepper and maybe some chilli flakes :) I think that would go well, especially with the Sweet Roasted Red Pepper with English Tomato chips
Salsa and sour cream
good old guacamole!
One of my favourite dips is muhammarah, made with dried red peppers, crushed walnuts, garlic and pomegranate molasses.
Smoky bacon and sweet chilli dip
Not overly adventurous but I do love home-made guacamole with avocado, chilli, red onion, tomato and lemon juice.
I love avocado so a guacamole type dip is my fave, avocado, crushed garlic, lime juice and chopped fresh tomato
A tub of Philadelphia cheese mixed with sweet chilli sauce – delicious for dunking & dipping ????
I love a spicy guacamole-
1/2 red chilli
1 tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce
1 small red onion, finely diced
Salt and Pepper
Simple but delicious :)
i love a good sweet chilli but with extra emphasis on the sweet.
red pepper, tomato puree, chillies, garlic, lime juice, vinegar, honey.
Sweet with the honey (but not too sweet as the lime and vinegar cuts through it) but delicately balanced so it’s not too hot either.
This looks amazing!
I make my guacamole by using roast garlic to soften the garlicky taste so while I’m roasting that I bake a small whole aubergine, remove skin, squeeze out some of the water and blitz with paprika and low fat soft cheese. They are nice served together. :)
cream cheese ,mackeral a little yogart seasoning and dill and parsley maybe a dash of horseradish to bring the flavours alive taste as you go along mix well, delicious on crispy toast
Roasted tomatoes, red and green peppers and sour cream
I’d love to try a chilli chocolate dip with them!
A simple yoghurt and cucumber dip always goes down well in our house x
i haven’t tried these before they look lovely :O ^.^
Quirks & Queries
My favourite dip that has been a family recipe for years is a: Wasabi and Chilli dip. It is quite spicy, but it has a lovely tang to it. The Wasabi complements the Chilli, so it is a great bold flavour to add to the Market Deli chips/ crisps. Alternatively, for the people who love creamy dips, why not try another of my recipes? – The creamy cheese surprise. To make this, combine 250g of cream cheese, 2 tbsp of Milk, finely chopped spring onions, fresh and crisp parsley, a bunch of chopped chives, and salt and pepper ( optional). Again, this refreshing dip goes well with the chips/ crisps or a selection of Crudités (raw carrots, courgettes, celery cucumber, peppers and sweetcorn).
blend together, chopped tomatoes, green chillies, ginger, garlic, add, salt, yoghurt, and mint sauce – serve chilled
Spicy mango chutney with Basil. Certainly my favorite.
Guacamole and chilli
Greek yogurt, finely sliced cucumber and chopped mint
I would recommend a beautiful, protein packed Spinach and Parmesan dip! A perfect/guilt free accompaniment to snacks! Packed full of goodness but with yummy cheese, can’t go wrong!
i would make a garlic and lemon dip
I think the Market Deli roasted garlic and Mediterranean Herbs flavour chips would be perfectly accompanied by a spicy, smoky aubergine dip. I make mine by roasting whole aubergines until blackened on the outside, and really soft and squishy inside – whenever possible, I roast them on the BBQ, as it really intensifies the smoky flavour, but in the winter you can do them in the oven! When cooled, scrape the flesh into a food processor, and add mayonnaise and/or Greek yogurt, depending upon your preference ( I find yoghurt a bit too tangy for choice, but it is much lower in fat and cals when I’m being good!). Add some garlic – minced finely if raw, but I prefer a few cloves of garlic which I bake while doing the aubergine for a richer flavour – chilli flakes, ground cumin, and a good whack of salt to taste, blitz to smooth, chill for a couple of hours, then serve with chips of choice and wine!
Certainly like to try them out.
Asparagus and blue cheese dip :)
Love a homemade sweet chilli sauce, I grow my own chillis in greenhouse makes it taste even better
5 red chillis (leave seeds in if u love it hot)
