Cornish Yarg
Weight: approx 200g.

Baron Bigod Brie

Baron Bigod is an exquisite Suffolk made, bloomy, pasteurised cows milk cheese in the style of a classic Brie-de-meaux. A full-flavoured soft cheese with a nutty, mushroomy rind.

Local Fourseed Sourdough Crackers
Weight: approx 100g.
Fourseed Sourdough Crackers are unique crackers made by a local bakery. Made from the starter used for their fresh sourdough loaves, creating toasty, crunchy, robust crackers. The result is deliciously moreish with a nutty flavour and the addition of toasted seeds. These are perfect with most cheeses and ideal for dipping in softer cheeses like Delice de Bourgogne or baked Tunworth. Pairing Suggestion - soft cheeses Each bag weighs approx. 100g.

Baked Fig Ball
Weight: approx 110g.
The sweet, sticky fig paste is delicious with sharp, zesty cheeses such as a good Parmesan or Pecorino. The Seggiano Fig Ball comes from Cosenza, Calabria, in southern Italy. It is a delicious and traditionally ingenious way of preserving the juicy dottato variety of figs, which have tender skins, soft seeds and are unique to the region. The figs are pickled when plump and air-dried under nets before cooking for eighteen hours at a very low temperature. By this time they are sticky with caramelised fig juices. Pairing Suggestion - strong blue cheeses like Bleu des Causses Each fig ball weighs approx. 200g.
