Christmas Five

£39.99

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 addtional contrasting hard and soft cheeses. For full details click the 'about' tab below.

Contains 1.5-1.6kg cheese in total. Please note: crackers not included.

Christmas Five 2018

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 we'll be using, but the balance of cheese types will be maintained, producing a satisfying cheeseboard. Your box will have one each of these five different cheese types:

a hard cows’ milk cheese

Devon Oke is made by Rachel Stephens in north Devon. This creamy, full-flavoured cheese, based on a C17 recipe, is matured for about six months. The alternative here is Ford Farm Cave-Aged Cheddar, made in Dorset but matured in the Wookey Hole caves of neighbouring Somerset.

a blue

Devon Blue is made very locally to us - a great favourite of ours - whilst the milder Cornish Blue is milder and drier but equally wonderful.

a soft, brie-style cheese

The cheese used here will be 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 contrasting firm cows' milk cheese

Sharpham Rustic is a long-time favourite of ours. Made with rich unpasteurised Jersey milk, there is no other cheese like it that we know! Miss Muffet is the original cheese made by Bude-based Sue Proudfoot. It's a light, springy, mellow cheese which, made using the 'washed curd' technique, has something in common with young Dutch cheeses.

a contrasting soft cheese

Helford White is a gooey, pungent pink-rinded marvel from Cornwall’s Lizard peninsula. The other cheese going in some of our 'Five' boxes is Pepperdon. Exclusive to The Cheese Shed, this is a fresh cheese made with unpasterised Jersey milk and rolled in crushed black peppercorns.

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