Conceived as a cake in honour of the Queen’s Birthday, The Fine Cheese Co. has created a special cake. Each layer has its own significance!
The king of cheeses, Stilton, is present, as is Waterloo, a creamy Guernsey milk ‘brie’, named in honour of one of our greatest victories in battle. Curworthy is a firm, traditional English cheese that dates back to a time when the first Elizabeth was on the throne; and Katherine is a mellow goats’ milk cheese that in name looks ahead to the future of the monarchy.
Best of all they taste delicious, and together make a well-balanced cheese-board.
250g - Raw goats' milk
Katherine is a modern, British, washed-rind goats' milk cheese made in Somerset by Pete Humphries. Named romantically after an old flame, it is the baby sister to Pete's most famous cheese: Rachel. It is mellow and smooth with a firm texture.
450g, Cows' milk, Pasteurised
Curworthy Baby cheese is the little sister of Devon Oke, which dates back to the 17th century, and is thought to be even older than Cheddar. Rachel Stephens, the cheese-maker, washes the curds to give a flavour that is more mellow and sweeter than Cheddar.
400g, Cows' milk, Unpasteurised, Vegetarian
Waterloo cheese is soft, rich and buttery like a hollandaise sauce, but with a lactic finish emanating from its centre. It is made by Anne and Andy Wigmore in Berkshire and was originally made with Guernsey milk from the Duke of Wellington’s estate. Stratfield Saye has been home to the Dukes of Wellington since it was acquired by the very first Duke after the battle of Waterloo in 1817.
COLSTON BASSETT BABY STILTON
1kg, Cows' milk, Pasteurised, Vegetarian
Colston Bassett Baby Stilton is an intensely rich and creamy cheese, which is produced by the hand-ladling. Its flavour is deep, lingering and complex. The baby cheeses have a very slightly closer, denser texture but are still creamy with the same rich, full flavour.
