The Perfect Christmas Cheeseboard
Four fabulous cheeses that are bound to wow your friends and family: buttery and tangy cloth-bound Cheddar, British Camembert as good as the best French, traditional Wensleydale, and creamy-rich blue cheese that wins many awards.
This Christmas Classics cheese selection box includes:
Tunworth. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 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 more wrinkled, for a more intense flavour.
Hafod Cheddar. Unpasteurised cows’ milk, organic. 250g.
With only 65 Ayrshire cows providing the milk, this clothbound Cheddar is made to a very traditional recipe, giving a cheese that is buttery and smooth, with that special Cheddar tang.
Fellstone. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Tom and Clare Noblet started to make cheese in 2015 on their dairy farm on the edge of the Lake District. Based on a traditional old ‘dales’ recipe of the north of England, Fellstone is aged for three months by which time it has the fresh lemony-lactic flavours of a good Wensleydale, with a supple, firmer texture. This is farmhouse Wensleydale how it used to be, and it’s still being developed – Fellstone is one to watch.
Young Buck Blue. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
An outstanding raw-milk blue cheese from Northern Ireland. Using old-fashioned British blue cheese recipes from the turn of the 19th century, Young Buck cheese is traditionally made and hand-ladled to produce a rich, lingering flavour. An impressive debut cheese.
