The ultimate gift that keeps on giving.  Our subscription enables you to be very happy and/or very popular every month.  Become the favoured family member for a whole year or think of the vibes in the office if this is the treat that appears to share among the team.

 

The selections vary each month throughout the year depending on what is seasonally available and tasting great at the time.  Think melting, winter warmers in February and fresh, zingy friends of salad in June.  Information and tasting notes on all the cheese are included along with added info tailored to certain cheeses eg wine pairings and recipes.  You may even come across an occasional cheese related gift.  Preferences can be catered for.

DECEMBER SELECTION

There will be 2 delivery dates in December: Thursday 7th or Thursday 21st December

Please let us know which date suits you best when you check out.  

Colston Bassett Stilton (300g approx) pasteurised cow's milk blue cheese from Nottinghamshire, England.  Specially selected and matured by Neal's Yard Dairy, London.

Corra Linn (250g approx) raw sheep's milk cheese made in Lanarkshire, Scotland.  A Manchego-style hard cheese, made during spring and summer each year when the Errington family have a surplus of milk from their herd.  The cheese is great to eat in the winter when matured for about 6 months.  

Fromage Cathare (180g approx) raw goat's milk cheese made in the Haute Garonne, France.   This is a farmhouse cheese made by the Fricker family who moved from Germany to start making cheese with milk from a small herd of white Saanen goats.

Hafod Organic Cheddar (250g approx) pasteurised cow's milk cheese made by in Ceredigion, Wales.  Made with milk from the longest certified organic dairy herd in the UK .  A herd of wonderful Ayrshire cows owned by the Holden family who have adapted their recipe to make a much more traditional slow recipe that enables a bigger breath of flavour to develop in the cheese.  

Langres (min 180g) raw cow's milk cheese from Champagne-Ardenne, France.  Made by Fromagerie Schertenleib with milk collected from local farmers, this is a rind washed cheese with a distinctive orange hue, soft yielding texture and pungent savoury flavour finished with honey sweetness. 

Sourdough Crispbread (105g) made by Peters Yard, this is my favourite cracker to serve with cheese and many many other foods.  It is a good idea to have a packet to hand at all times. 

 

ALLERGENS: MILK, GLUTEN, may contain traces of nuts. 

cheeses are cut by hand and individual weights will vary but the overall weight of cheese contents will exceed 1.1kg

Keep in touch & plan ahead but if like me, you find that tricky and have to change plans at late notice, we will try to accommodate as best we can.  It is always worth asking.
