Christmas is the time for indulging so why not truly indulge, be it with just one magnificent round of Stilton or with a handful of your most favourite cheeses. We have something for everyone.
An odd number of cheeses work well, maybe 5 or 7. There needs to be something for everyone too.. not everybody loves Stinking Bishop, so choose wisely!
Always start with a mild cheese working up to the big cheddars or blues towards the end.
The milder ones we love and that are a bit different, and worth a place are anyone of the following... Wyfe of Bath, Rachel, Ossau Iraty or Mrs Kirkhams Lancashire.
For a creamy soft, you could easily offer Windrush, Baron Bigod, Eve, Wigmore or Delice de Bourgogne.
For something a little bit out there why not try a rind washed cheese such as Isle of Avalon, Merry Wyfe, Baronet or Rollright.
Heading in to the big guns territory and waking everyone up post Xmas snooze. Put anyone of these on your board, Vintage Lincolnshire Poacher, Cornish Mature Gouda, Old Winchester, Comté Extra Vieux or Witheridge Hay.
Now for the blues! It’s Christmas and a Colston Bassett Stilton is surely traditional. But if you fancy something a bit more unusual, opt for one of these. Blu 61, Sparkenhoe Shropshire Blue, Beauvale or Gorgonzola Dolce.
Whilst all these cheeses look amazing on your board don’t forget the finishing touches. Offer a selection of lovely crackers, plain or flavoured. Add pickles, chutney, panforte, membrillo, truffle honey or maybe some nuts and dried or fresh fruit.
A description of all the cheeses above are on our website. If you would like some advice then please call us at any of our locations and we will be happy to help!
