More about this
This Christmas cheese selection contains
Barwhey’s Cheddar. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 150g/250g.
Tricia makes cheese with rich, unpasteurised milk from her 36 Ayrshire cattle, after building up the herd and dairy from scratch in 2008. This Cheddar is fast becoming renowned for its complex and long flavours. Aged for 15 months, it is tangy, rich and shows just how good farmhouse Cheddar can be!
Kirkham’s Lancashire. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 150g/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.
Tunworth. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 125g/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 extra-wrinkled, for a more intense flavour. Supreme Champion Cheese at the 2013 British Cheese Awards.
Dorstone. Unpasteurised goats’ milk. 90g/180g.
One of Britain’s most outstanding goats’ milk cheeses. Sold by The Courtyard Dairy at only three weeks old, when it still has a mousse-like texture, lemony-fresh flavour and just a hint of goat.
Stichelton. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 150g/250g.
Hand-ladled and made to a traditional Stilton recipe but with unpasteurised milk, Stichelton is creamy and nutty with a rich yet gentle blue note.
Quince Paste. 100g/200g.
A classic Membrillo (Quince) paste made in Spain. A great alternative to preserves and grapes with cheese.
