The modern British classics cheese selection box includes:
Yorkshire Pecorino. Pasteurised sheep’s milk. 250g.
This Yorkshire Pecorino Fresco (‘young Pecorino’) is only 30 days old, and like all classic Italian young cheeses is smooth, yoghurty and sweet. You could easily over-indulge…
Finn. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 200g.
A triple-cream cheese, a classic of the French Parisian style. Extra cream is added to the milk before making Finn, ensuring the cheese has a rich, delectable flavour and smooth texture.
Old Winchester. Pasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian. 250g.
Needing an outlet for their milk, Mike and Judie Smales developed Old Winchester – a Gouda-style cheese aged for 18-months,; caramelised, smoky and with crystalline crunches.
Darling Blue. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Darling Blue is a newly-created British blue cheese made on Doddington farm, bordering Scotland, using milk fresh from their herd of cows. It is firm-textured and has delicate blue veining, which breaks down the texture of the cheese to make Darling Blue smooth and creamy with a rich complex flavour.
