Delicious, a television series on Sky 1, has just finished its four-episode run and we were over the moon to see that a number of The Fine Cheese Co. partner products had starring roles. The eagle eyed among you will have caught appearances from Artisan Du Chocolat, La Tourangelle, Serrats and Van Nahmen.
Our partner brands shared screen time with several big-name British actors and actresses, including Ian Glen, Emilia Fox and Dawn French. The series has been written by Dan Sefton, who was previously responsible for Mr Selfridge and the Secret Diary of a Call Girl.

Did you know we have three cheese shops and café destinations in Bath and London? It’s been an exciting two years as we’ve grown from having just one cheese shop in Bath to three very different locations.
Earlier this year, our original Bath cheese shop and café in Walcot Street was joined by a London cheese shop and dining experience in Motcomb Street, Belgravia. We’re happy to say it’s a launch that’s proven to be a big hit with the locals.
Before Belgravia, we opened our Warehouse shop, which is beyond the outskirts of the city, just off the M4.

To mark 400 years since the birth of the humble Devon Oke cheese, we have curated a selection box featuring a cheese for every century after the Oke’s inception.
Headlining the 400 Years of British Cheese box, which was featured in the June 2016 issue of Food and Travel Magazine, is the Devon Oke itself, a cheese that some believe is older than Cheddar. Cheese-maker Rachel Stevens discovered the Devon Oke recipe only 20 years’ ago and was delighted to re-create a lost tradition. Her cows' milk cheese has a smooth, firm texture and a mellow, creamy flavour.
Accompanying the Devon Oke is the 18th-century Colston Basset Stilton, a pasteurised vegetarian cheese. Made by Billy Kevan and his team in Nottinghamshire, Colston Bassett is one of the only hand-ladled Stiltons still in existence. Hand-ladling produces an intensely rich and creamy cheese; and the Colston Bassett flavour is deep, lingering and complex.

To celebrate our 25th year and the opening of our new London flagship shop, we’re launching a new range of cheese macarons.
Invented and made by Gautam Kaila, our very talented Head Pastry Chef in Bath, these sweet yet savoury macarons are a totally new eating experience.
First up is the Motcomb Macaron. Made with goat’s cheese and beetroot, it is inspired by the newly commissioned Motcomb goat cheese and has been created to mark the opening of our new shop.
The delicate cheese (made in Somerset, naturally) is paired with fresh beetroot in the filling. A hint of beetroot powder gives a stunning, deep beetroot colour to the crisp shell.
We also have the Bath Macaron that’s made with World Champion Cheese Bath Blue from our home town. We have worked with this family of farmers and cheese-makers for the 25 years we’ve been open.
The creamed Bath Blue is partnered with chives for a deeply savoury filling and the shell i
Great news for London, we are opening our first location in the capital. Located in Motcomb Street, Belgravia, our new flagship location will also showcase our À Table casual dining concept.
The Fine Cheese Co. Motcomb Street will sell some 110 cheeses from around the world, with an emphasis on British artisan cheeses. Europe’s finest charcuterie will also be available. It will be cut to order on a vintage Avery Berkel slicer.
Not only will our dining experience, À Table, offer the best from the shop, but there will be seasonal classics too, such as our signature cheese soufflé. Everything can be enjoyed in the venue’s chic surroundings, accompanied by a bottle from the unique “Wine Wall” that boasts 100 European bottles, from Picpoul de Pinet ‘Cuvée Prestige’ 2015 Domaine des Lauriers to Château D’Yquem 1996, sold at retail prices plus a £10 corkage fee.

If you want to embrace a simpler life and need some inspiration to do so (and let’s be honest who doesn't?), a new magazine called The Simple Things hits the book stands on Saturday.
Cheese is as pure and simple as it gets, so when they asked us to get involved we jumped at the chance.
Ann-Marie did an interview for issue 1 on soft cheeses like Camembert de Normandie, Gorgonzola Dolce and Brillat Savarin.
She also a made a video about our luscious local goats' milk cheeses, Timsbury Ash Pyramid and Tymsboro' Ripened Pyramid from Timsbury, Bath - which just shows how accessible goats’
