Christmas Five 2013

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’s Rustic with Garlic & Chives is a long-time favourite of ours: the ‘mini’ version is new this year. Other boxes will feature a Nettle and Herb flavoured Woolsery from Dorset’s Annette Lee.

a contrasting soft cheese

Helford White is a gooey, pungent pink-rinded marvel from Cornwall’s Lizard peninsula. Or, we’ll use Pepperdon. Made especially for us at Christmas 2012, this is a fresh cheese bringing together Jersey milk, cream and black peppercorns: we’re delighted to be offering it again this year.

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