Party Cheese-Tasting Pack
A tutored cheese-tasting pack that is ideal for home-parties, dinner events or small ‘zoom’ virtual events with friends in differing locations.
A varied cheeseboard featuring six portions of the finest farmhouse British cheese (totalling 1.45kg) will be delivered in time for the tasting, to any address nationwide, together with a tasting sheet, scorecard, map and flavour wheel.
The tasting itself also comes with pre-recorded online video that can be watched whilst you taste to learn even more about the cheeses in your pack.
On the pre-recorded video Andy Swinscoe, former World Cheesemonger of the Year, will be your guide as you taste six of the very best British cheeses. He’ll explain their flavours, their histories and why a good cheesemonger would be delighted with them.
You’ll soon see why The Courtyard Dairy has won so many awards (including BBC Food & Farming Award, World Cheese Award, Observer Food Monthly Award, Daily Telegraph’s Top 10 Cheese Shops in the World), as Andy guides you through the interesting details of each cheese.
The cheese tasting pack includes enough cheese for 10-14 people to enjoy at home. Friends and family can join the tasting via your own video conference if they buy a pack for their household. The virtual cheese-tasting video lasts 30 minutes.
There is an option in the drop down box to match wine (2 x full bottles) or beer (10 x cans) to enjoy at the same time.
The cheeses tasted will be the best available at the time and so may differ from those pictured.
More about this
In this dinner party cheese pack you will receive the six cheeses to be tasted, plus a tasting sheet, scorecard, map and flavour wheel, as well as the TinyURL link to enable you to view a 30-minute engaging pre-recorded video guiding all participants through your cheese tasting, which you can share with multiple participating households using zoom. The video covers tasting the cheeses one at a time, giving the background and stories, and a brief history of British cheeses, as well as answering some frequently asked questions such as ‘is the rind edible?’, ‘what is unpasteurised cheese?’, etc.)
Please order packs separately for each household, if more than one household will be enjoying the same tasting or dinner party!
Special requests (such as no goats’, vegetarian only, no blue cheese) can be accommodated, but some of the cheeses may not then be covered on the pre-recorded videos.
Delivery to a UK mainland address is included.
You must be over 18 to purchase the wine or beer package.
Ingredients in cheeses: Milk, salt, cheese cultures (egg in Lysosome in Old Winchester) and rennet.
