More about this
This Christmas cheese selection contains
St Andrew’s Cheddar. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Jane Stewart makes cheese with rich, unpasteurised milk from her husband’s cattle. This Cheddar is classically Scottish in style: aged for 14 months, it is powerful, strong and tangy – a real sharp traditional Cheddar.
Kirkham’s Lancashire. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Third-generation Lancashire-cheese-maker Graham still follows the traditional two-day curd method, making buttery, yoghurty-flavoured cheese with a fluffy and light texture that melts in the mouth. The Courtyard Dairy is one of only two shops which still have Kirkham’s Lancashire made for them in a traditional 25kg (56lb) wheel. This size ages slower, producing a better, longer-lasting flavour.
Baron Bigod Brie. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Sold only when perfectly ripe, this modern creation is Britain’s finest example of a Brie made in a traditional style. The French will be jealous…
Ingot. Unpasteurised goats’ milk. 190g.
Made in south Cumbria with milk from a small herd of 200 goats of the ancient Golden Guernsey breed. The milk is used fresh on the farm every day by Nicola and Martin to produce a lactic fresh goats’ cheese with velvety-smooth mouthfeel reminiscent of the very best French Loire goats’ cheeses. As the cheese ages over several weeks the wrinkly rind breaks down the texture and adds an aromatic goat flavour
Sparkenhoe Blue. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Famous for their vintage Red Leicester, the Clarke family diversified further into blue-cheese production when their son Will returned to the farm. Using milk from their 150 cows he decided to develop a classic British ‘rinded’ blue akin to the famous blue cheeses made in the region. The end result is Sparkenhoe Blue – a cheese of its own: mellow blue, with dense-fudgy texture, and a savoury finish.
Quince Paste. 200g.
Classic Membrillo (Quince) paste made in Spain. A great alternative to preserves and grapes with cheese.
Ingredients in cheese: Milk, salt, cheese cultures and rennet
Ingredients in Quince: quince, sugar, lemon juice, Pectine, Citric Acid and Benzoic Acid. Made in an environment where mustard and nuts are used
