Monthly Cheese Selection
SOMETHING TO LOOK FORWARD TO...MONTHLY CHEESE SELECTION
What are you waiting for?
If you find the idea of three perfect cheeses arriving on your doorstep exciting, then make a date with our monthly cheese selection.
We choose cheeses from what is in season and in the best condition, and we provide detailed cheese notes to chew on.
It’s not a club, because you may buy one month’s selection a year, all twelve, or simply dip in and dip out whenever you choose – and of course the selection makes a wonderful present for a cheese-lover.
NOVEMBER 2016 SELECTION
Saint Marcellin has been made since the 15th Century in the uplands of the Dauphine region of the Rhone-Alpes. A small and delicate cheese, it is rich and creamy and can ripen to an almost fluid centre. It has a light, subtle freshness and a nutty aroma.
Made in East Sussex by Kevin and Alison Blunt, this ripened goats' milk cheese is first rolled in ash, then matured to develop a complex, yet subtle flavour. The texture is like ice-cream. Luxurious grilled.
Fontina is the traditional alpine cheese from the valley of Aosta and an Italian classic. Records of production date back to 1100’s, where summer milk would have been coagulated and stored for consumption during the colder, winter months. The making process is similar to an artisan Raclette or Morbier and offers a similar texture, which is suitable for melting. The flavour is mellow and complex, with a deliciously creamy base and pine-like aromatics. Perfect on a autumn cheeseboard.
