Pack includes

Stichelton
Weight: approx 200g.
Stichelton is an English blue cheese made by Joe Schneider using organic, unpasteurised Friesian-Holstein cow's milk on his Collingthwaite Farm in Nottinghamshire. It is made to a traditional Blue Stilton recipe, except that it uses raw milk and natural rennet. The cheese makers could not legally use the name 'Stilton' since it is granted the status of PDO by the European Commission. Therefore, they decided to use an early form of the name of the Stilton village mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book. The flavours of this intesenly delicious creamy white cheese are nutty and reminiscent of apples with underlying toasty notes. The delicate veins of blue-green mould beneath the rusty-coloured, orange-brown rind behold a spicy, savoury element and a long-lasting caramel-like sweetness. Pairing Suggestion - Miller's Damsel Charcoal Biscuits A whole cheese weighs approx 8kg, if you would like a full wheel please contact us and we can arrange this for you.

Cornish Yarg
Weight: approx 200g.
Alan Gray (who gave Yarg its now famous name by reversing the spelling of his own) and his wife found a recipe from 1615 for a nettle wrapped semi firm cheese in their attic. The cheese is light textured with fresh citrus notes. The cheeses are carefully wrapped in nettle leaves, giving a distinctive finish and subtle herbaceous flavour. Pairing Suggestion - Stockans Thick Oatcakes A whole Cornish Yarg weighs approx. 3kg – if you would like a full wheel please contact us and we can arrange this for you.

Gorwydd Caerphilly
Weight: approx 200g.
Gorwydd Caerphilly is made following a traditional recipe and working the curds by hand, the cheeses are usually matured for a minimum of three to four months (which is longer than most caerphillys') to give a wonderfully deep flavour that is yet still fresh and clean tasting with slight citrus notes, combined with a surprisingly creamy, moist texture. This excellent cheese has deservedly won a number of prestigious cheese awards. Pairing Suggestion - Hawkshead Sour Cherry & Prosecco Jam  A whole cheese weighs approx 4kg, if you would like a whole wheel please contact us and we can arrange this for you.

Pitchfork Cheddar
Weight: approx 200g.
From the makers of Gorwydd Caerphilly, comes Pitchfork, whose name is a reference to the old farming tools used to toss the curd while mixing in the salt. A practice the Trethowans' have since resurrected, imbuing their new-old cheddar with romance and history. Full-bodied, nutty, and sweet with a creamy texture that lingers on the palate. Pairing Suggestion - Lincolnshire Plum Bread

Baron Bigod Brie
Weight: approx 200g.
Baron Bigod is an exquisite Suffolk made, bloomy unpasteurised cows milk cheese in the style of a classic brie-de-meaux. A full-flavoured soft cheese with a nutty, mushroomy rind. The smooth, silky golden paste that will often ooze out over a delicate, fresh and citrussy centre. You will find long-lasting flavours of warm earth, farmyard and mushrooms, with occasional notes of citrus and truffle. Pairing Suggestion - Lemon Cheese Preserve A whole Baron weighs approx 3kg - if you would like a full wheel please contact us and we can arrange this for you.

Fourseed Sourdough Crackers
Weight: approx 100g.
Fourseed Sourdough Crackers are made at Nottinghamshire based Welback Bakery. The crackers are made from their fresh sourdough loaves, creating a crunchy four seed cracker perfect for cheese. Pairing Suggestion - soft cheeeses 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
