What is the Difference Between Brie and Camembert?

Slice some Brie, serve it on a Natural Cracker and the cheese will taste fairly similar to a Camembert, if you were to do the same. Despite both being made from cows’ milk and both being soft cheeses, they are, however, quite different. For one, just look at the two side by side and you’ll see these are not the same cheeses. Take our Camembert Domaine de St Loup as an example. It’s about the size of a CD, whereas our Brie de Meaux Dongé isn’t... Read More

Brie makes a wonderful addition to many cheese wedding cakes. Indeed, we use it in our five-tier Alice Cheese Wedding Cake, but how do you protect the cheese when it's on the base of a beautifully tiered cake? We love Brie, especially our Brie de Meaux Dongé.

Our Cheese Care Manager, Luke Maslen, has shared his Ultimate Welsh Rarebit. It’s the perfect comfort food for a rainy day.

Luke, prefers a hearty, west-country cheddar for that earthy hit, so we’ve used our Westcombe Hand-Select Cheddar in this recipe. ... Read More

Recipe: GRILLED ASPARAGUS SALAD WITH PROSCIUTTO HAM AND RICOTTA STAGIONATA

As we approached the village of Colston Bassett, the clouds parted and fields of vivid green grasses were bathed in sunshine.

Such simplicity is truly admirable, and the continuous stream of locals thr... Read More

Our Cheese Care Manager spends a week in Vermont

As I landed in Boston Logan ready for my Jasper Hill Farm adventure, the heaviest snow storm in years swept in and the city was left knee deep in snow. Then, while the hordes of workers filed out to clear the pavements and roads with shovels in hand, I imagined what the route North to subarctic Vermont would look like. Despite my concerns, it ended up being fine thanks to our all-wheel drive vehicle. That is, until we ventured onto the back r... Read More

Cheese making: A Different Vintage Every Day

Wine and cheese enjoy a harmonious relationship on our dinner tables. For every cheese, there is always a complementary wine that makes for the perfect pairing. The bond between these two does not end there, though. There are countless parallels in the way cheese and wine are produced too. When making wine, for instance, the soil type can influence the minerals that are absorbed by vines, which affects the grapes and then, as a result, the ta... Read More

Vacherin Mont D’or has returned to our cheese room

It’s back! Vacherin Mont D’or, the spoonable one, is now in stock. Made in the shadow of the Mont d’Or in France, this cheese has become famous throughout the world. Vacherin Mont d’Or is only made between the 15th August and 15th March, when the cows have come down the mountain from their high summer pastures, and their milk is too fatty and not plentiful enough to make whole Comté wheels. The Comté co-operatives then turn their hands to mak... Read More

Stichelton Toast Brings New Meaning to the Term “Moreish”

Together with cheese-maker Joe Schneider, we’ve created Stichelton Toast, an utterly unique type of toast and a collaboration we're proud of.

Each slice of Toast is cut thinly to make it super-light and crunchy, and the taste is deeply savoury. This is unlike an... Read More
