New Cheeses for Summer 2016


We're bringing in three new soft cheeses to fit in beautifully with long hot afternoons, days out and picnics on the beach. Coming from three great artisan dairies in Somerset, Dorset and Cornwall, we know they all have terrific provenance, and not only are they very different from one another, but each brings something distinctively new to our shelves.

Doublet is a member of the brie family … but this is brie-with-a-twist, being made from a mixture of sheeps’ and cows’ milk. The Bartlett family farms near Shepton Mallet in Somerset; all the cheeses they make use their own organic milk.

Snowdrop, from Dorset-based Annette Lee, is a ‘fresh’ goats’ cheese. Fresh cheeses are ready to eat very quickly, soft, mild and usually with no rind. Snowdrop comes packed in its own wooden box and is suitable for grilling or slicing.

Finally, Helford Sunrise is the newest creation of soft cheese specialist Treveador Farm Dairy based near Helston in Cornwall. This one’s a real looker. Underneath its pinkish rind, speckled with crushed black peppercorns there’s a soft, gooey apricot-coloured interior. It isn’t lacking in the flavour department either!
