More about this
This Christmas cheese selection contains
St Andrew’s Cheddar. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 150g/250g.
Jane 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. 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.
