More about this
This award-winning cheese selection box includes:
St James. Unpasteurised sheeps’ milk. 200g.
An unusual find: a washed-rind sheep’s cheese. The flavoursome milk of the Lacaune breed of sheep produces an incredible cheese as St James breaks down, varying from soft with a savoury, meaty flavours to firmer with a creamy, rich sweetness.
Tunworth. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
An English Camembert good enough to make a Frenchman weep: vegetal, porcini-flavoured and intense. The Courtyard Dairy select only particular Tunworths that are more wrinkled, for a more intense flavour.
Winner: Supreme Champion (British Cheese Awards 2013 & 2006).
Old Winchester. Pasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian. 250g.
Needing an outlet for their milk, Mike and Judie developed Old Winchester. This Gouda-style cheese, aged for 18 months, is caramelised, smoky and with crystalline crunches.
Winner: Best Modern British Cheese (British Cheese Awards 2007).
Gorgonzola Dolce. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Made by Marco Arrigoni in Treviglio (val Taleggio), the home of Gorgonzola (the dairy is only 12 miles from the town of Gorgonzola). He is the third generation of a family that has been farming there since 1920. Using milk from their own farm they now make a range of cheeses including Gorgonzola Dolce and Taleggio.
All the cheeses in this selection box have also been previous award and medal-winning cheeses at The British Cheese Awards, World Cheese Awards and International Cheese Awards.
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.
