Everyone loves a Ploughman’s! This is the perfect selection of creamy Colston Bassett Stilton PDO, Double Barrel Lincolnshire Poacher and Swaledale Traditional PDO. A Ploughman’s is of course not complete without a tangy piccalilli, a staple that’s been included on a classic Ploughman’s for decades. This delivery comes with Welbeck Bakehouse Fourseed Sourdough crackers and a Modens Lincolnshire PLumbread.

A good ploughman’s is hard to beat and so easy to create at home. The specific term “Ploughman’s lunch” is believed to date from the 1950s, when the Cheese Bureau, a marketing body, began promoting it in pubs as a way to increase the sales of cheese, which had recently ceased to be rationed.

The Cheese Society’s Perfect Ploughman’s – This delivery arrives with the staple items so we suggest the addition of warm baguette, hard-boiled eggs, real ale, pork pie, sliced cold apple and some thick cuts of ham and you’ve got a delicious Ploughman’s lunch.
