With an uncompromising approach to cheesemaking, Martin and Nicola strive for brilliance rather than consistency. Rind-washing develops meaty flavours, while the sheep's milk brings fresh and milky tones.
How Much Cheese To Buy
We recommend a portion size of 70-120g per person depending on when you are eating the cheese. 70g is ample if you are serving the cheese immediately after a large meal or as part of a buffet. If the cheese is the main part of the meal you will need to allow at least 100g per person and you may prefer to go to 120g if you think your guests will be particularly hungry (or just very fond of cheese!).
However, if you are only a small party, you may find that the pieces look a little small. In this case, choose fewer pieces, or even just one cheese, so that you can present your guests with something that looks more substantial. If you want to provide a wider choice of cheeses, just go for slightly larger pieces and enjoy the leftovers yourself the next day.

Gift Wrap Available
Martin Gott and Nicola Robinson make this seasonal cheese from the raw milk of their own Lacaune ewes. With an uncompromising approach to cheesemaking, Martin and Nicola strive for brilliance rather than consistency, and so St. James will vary through the season. Rind-washing develops meaty flavours, while the sheep's milk brings fresh and milky tones.
*A whole St. James weighs approximately 2kg. Smaller weights are a cut of a whole cheese.
