More about this
This blue cheese selection box includes:
Devon Blue. Pasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian. 210g.
Devon Blue was one of the first modern British blue cheeses, created by Robin Congdon in the 1970s. Unpressed, French-style, it is sold by The Courtyard Dairy at four months old, when it is flinty, minerally and light with a subtle blue taste.
Cote Hill Blue. Unpasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian. 290g.
With the price of wholesale milk falling, the Davenports took a short course in cheese making and invented Britain’s first unpasteurised soft blue: Cote Hill Blue.
Biggar Blue. Unpasteurised goats’ milk, vegetarian. 250g. This cheese can easily be replaced with another non-goat blue if you’d prefer; just add that as a note to the special instructions at checkout.
Based loosely on a Roquefort recipe, it has a powerful flavour with a floral note to accompany the blue. This comes from the richness of the milk from the goats feeding on the unforgiving mountainside close to Edinburgh.
Young Buck Blue. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
An outstanding raw-milk blue cheese from Northern Ireland. Using old-fashioned British blue cheese recipes from the turn of the 19th century, Young Buck cheese is traditionally made and hand-ladled to produce a rich, lingering flavour. An impressive debut cheese.
This product will have two weeks shelf life from the date of delivery. Conveniently, at checkout you can choose a delivery date even well in the future if you would like your cheese delivering for a specific event.
In the current pandemic not all our suppliers are able to supply us as consistently as they were.
What this means is that occasionally we may give you a substitute in some cheese selections. This will always be a carefully-selected similar cheese of equal or greater value.
If you do not want us to supply a suitable substitute in this way, state in the ‘special instructions’ at checkout: “No replacements”, in which case we may have to phone you if there is an issue.
