The Sheep & The Goats
Our no-cows'-milk selection! The four-cheese version features two each from the sheep and the goats. Millstone is a close contender for my favourite ewes' milk cheese - just a fabulous nutty taste and lovely dry texture (beautiful looking rind, too), and Beenleigh Blue is the Devon-made sheeps' milk blue that chefs rave about. On the goat side we have Pennard Vale, winner of Best Goats' Cheese at the 2010 British Cheese Awards, and the beautifully subtle, soft Vulscombe, made by Graham & Jo Townsend.
The five-cheese box adds something different again - the stunning Tor from Whitelake Cheese in Somerset. Outside - pyramid shape, grey-and-white colouring from it's dusting of wood ash; inside - soft, creamy heaven.
Weight: about 900g for the four-cheese box; about 1.1 for five cheeses.
Suitable for vegetarians.
Posh Box option
Tick the box above and we'll pack your cheese in a smart Posh Box, priced at £8.99 - a lovely way to give your gift a bit more impact. Substantially made, they feature a magnetic 'catch' and matching ribbon. There are three different sizes - we'll choose the one that seems to be the best fit for the items in the order.
