sorry, sold out!
Christmas Four 2012
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.
Your Christmas Four will contain:
a firm cows’ milk cheese
Miss Muffet, made by Sue Proudfoot - this springy, sweet, cheese was a big award winner in 2011 or Cornish Smuggler, Sue’s take on cheddar, with attractive orange-veined colouring or Curworthy, the modern classic from North Devon’s Rachel Stephens.
Devon Blue, ‘Best English Cheese’ at the 2011 British Cheese Awards or Cornish Blue, Supreme Champion at the 2010 World Cheese Awards or Dorset Blue Vinney, 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 of Kelston.
a cheese with added flavour
Simply Cumin is made in north Devon, this is the first English cheese we’ve seen that borrows the Dutch idea of flavouring cheese with cumin seeds. Other boxes will feature a Nettle and Herb flavoured Woolsery. Annette Lee’s tangy goats’ cheese is a favourite of ours - this is the latest version.
The Christmas Four will contain 1.3-1.4kg cheese in total.
white box or ‘posh box’?
Your cheese will be packed in our white Cheese Shed box. It’s smart, but the hand-made ‘posh box’ (£3.50 - we use red, gold and turquoise versions) is even better. You can see both in the photos; to go posh, tick the box above before ordering.
Christmas delivery information
If you type in ‘Christmas’ when asked for a delivery date in checkout, we will deliver on the 20th, 21st or 22nd December (but note that we can’t specify which date). For full Christmas delivery information, see this page.
What else is in the box?
More than just cheese! There’s an information sheet telling you about all the cheeses, a card bearing your message (you’ll give us this in checkout), and a newsletter.
