Christmas Five

sorry - sold out!

For these Christmas boxes we’ve used our knowledge and contacts to put together beautiful selections of artisan cheeses from ‘off the beaten track’: something delicious and just a little different this Christmas.

We like to give our business to a number of dairies, so we’ll choose from a few different cheeses, but the balance of cheese types will be maintained, producing a satisfying cheeseboard.

The Christmas Five includes all three key cheese types - hard, blue, and brie - plus an extra, flavoured cheese and a second, contrasting, soft cheese. For full details click the 'about' tab below. 1.5-1.6kg cheese in total.

Christmas Five 2015

For these Christmas boxes we’ve used our knowledge and contacts to put together beautiful selections of artisan cheeses from ‘off the beaten track’: something delicious and just a little different this Christmas.

We like to give our business to a number of dairies, so there’s a few different cheeses involved, but the balance of cheese types will be maintained, producing a satisfying cheeseboard. All the boxes start with these three essentials:

a firm cows’ milk cheese

Little Wheal, made by Sue Proudfoot, has a creamy texture and zingy flavour; Cornish Smuggler, her version of cheddar, has an attractive orange-veined marbling. We’re also using Curworthy, a sweet, mellow, modern classic from North Devon’s Rachel Stephens.

a blue

Devon Blue was ‘Best English Cheese’ at the 2011 British Cheese Awards whilst the milder Cornish Blue has also been a major award-winner. Dorset Blue Vinny is the Westcountry’s great traditional blue.

a soft, brie-style cheese

Sharpham, from probably the country’s most experienced makers of ‘brie’ style cheese, or Bath Soft Cheese, a lovely organic brie from Graham Padfield, based just outside Bath.

a cheese with added flavouring

Sharpham Rustic is a long-time favourite of ours, and we have two different versions of this for our Christmas boxes this year - one with garlic & chives, one with caraway seeds. Other boxes will feature a mini Dartmoor Chilli.  Made in Devon, this is a sweet cheese lightly flavoured with locally grown chilli.

a contrasting soft cheese

Helford White is a gooey, pungent pink-rinded marvel from Cornwall’s Lizard peninsula; the other cheese in our 'Five' boxes is Parke. Made especially for us at Christmas 2015, Parke is a fresh cheese made with Jersey milk and cream, then rolled in herbs: we’re delighted to be offering it for the first time this year.

The Christmas Five will contain 1.5-1.6kg cheese in total.
