"Life is great. Cheese makes it better.....” Avery Aames
Cheese and more glorious Cheese! Our range of cheeses is growing all the time and we pride ourselves on being able to source many of the best in Britain and the rest of the world. These are some we have stocked for some time and are amongst our absolute favourites…..
Walo Red Wine Farmer
is a semi hard, unpasteurised cow’s milk Alpine cheese from Switzerland. A firm favourite with our customers and a regular winner at The World Cheese Awards, this has a sweet, creamy back note and a silky-smooth texture and rich, powerful taste. It is washed in locally produced red wine which imparts an extraordinarily pungent flavour. Its full, rounded flavour makes an excellent cheese on toast.
Delice de Bourgogne
is a decadent triple cream unpasteurised cheese made by Fromagerie Lincet in the Burgundy region of France. Rich and full flavoured with a smooth, velvety, melt in the mouth texture. It’s made by adding creme fraiche to full fat cow’s milk. It has a white bloomy rind which has a mushroomy smell that contrasts nicely with the buttery and tangy notes of the cheese. Enjoy this cheese at room temperature and with some garlicky mushrooms on hot toast.
is a torta style ewes’ milk cheese from the Castile and Leon region of Spain. It has a soft, silky centre and a fresh, earthy aroma. The flavour is mild, slightly sweet and richly creamy. Perfect for a dinner party, make sure you keep it at room temperature for at least an hour prior to consumption. Cut the top off and scoop out the soft interior with some breadsticks or crudités.
is a unique handmade "bomb" shaped artisan cheese created by the Shorrock family in Lancashire who have been making cheese for generations. Aged for 2 years, it offers a full flavoured creamy taste and crumbly texture. This vegetarian cheese is made with pasteurised milk from Andrew Shorrock’s herd of Holstein Friesian cows. Just slice of the top, pass it around the table with a spoon and let everyone help themselves.
is a pasteurised sheep, cow & goat milk cheese made in Alta Langa, Italy. La Tur has an ice-cream texture and the richness of a triple cream. It is straw-coloured, with a delicately bloomy rind. The mixed milk adds a pungency of aroma, and a depth and piquancy
Do remember that we can prepare a full cheeseboard for you to include carefully matched cheeses, biscuits & crackers, membrillo paste & chutney, fruit and a board! Just give the deli a call on 01730 260102 to discuss your requirements.
