Good butter is a right and it makes all the difference to artisan bread. Here are two we can vouch for. Standing at each end of the spectrum one is rich, flecked with sea salt and reminiscent of butter of old (memories of farmhouse kitchens where breakfast is heavily-buttered toast, grilled to perfection on the Aga) while the other is pure white, elegant and made in the Italian mountains. Whether you like it salty or sweet - transport yourself somewhere a little more exciting for Monday morning breakfast.
Throughout our history, we have sought, cared for and loved hand-made cheese. Search from over 600 delicatessens, farm shops and so on throughout the UK, and in over 30 countries (from Austria to Australia).

The Fine Cheese Co. is a maturer, wholesaler, retailer and exporter of artisan British cheeses. We are based in historic Bath, founded by the Romans and famous for its beautiful Georgian architecture - alongside Venice the only World Heritage city in Europe.
We have been cheese specialists for twenty years, and from the start we have nurtured and supported the cream of British cheese-makers. We stock over a hundred hand-made British cheeses: from rediscovered gems such as Devon Oke, a hard but creamy cows’ milk cheese made to the original seventeenth century recipe, to Lord of the Hundreds, an unpasteurised mature sheep’s milk cheese made in the style of an Italian Pecorino.
