The Cheese Society's Seasonal Classics Cheese Collection contains five of the best British, seasonal, artisan favourites chosen for their popularity, flavour profiles and outstanding representation of British cheesemaking.

Included in the delivery is an unusual and delicious BAKED FIG BALL from Seggiano, a sticky and sweet vine leaf wrapped ball of pressed, cooked figs that create a deep, almost liquorice flavour. Also included is a pack of WELBECKFour-seed Sourdough crackers which are incredibly popular and have flavours of fresh bread and toasted seeds. This curated selection makes a superb cheeseboard and is a delicious journey of incredible British Cheesemaking.

Please note each cheese is cut to 200g by hand, therefore the weights listed are approximate. 

Pack includes

Stichelton
Weight: approx 200g.

Stichelton is an English blue cheese made by Joe Schneider using organic, unpasteurised Friesian-Holstein cow's milk on his Collingthwaite Farm in Nottinghamshire. It is made to a traditional Blue Stilton recipe, except that it uses raw milk and natural rennet. The cheese makers could not legally use the name 'Stilton' since it is granted the status of PDO by the European Commission. Therefore, they decided to use an early form of the name of the Stilton village mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book. The flavours of this intesenly delicious creamy white cheese are nutty and reminiscent of apples with underlying toasty notes. The delicate veins of blue-green mould beneath the rusty-coloured, orange-brown rind behold a spicy, savoury element and a long-lasting caramel-like sweetness.

Pairing Suggestion - MILLER'S DAMSEL CHARCOAL BISCUITS

A whole cheese weighs approx 8kg, if you would like a full wheel please contact us and we can arrange this for you.

Cornish Yarg
Weight: approx 200g.

Alan Gray (who gave Yarg its now famous name by reversing the spelling of his own) and his wife found a recipe from 1615 for a nettle wrapped semi firm cheese in their attic. The cheese is light textured with fresh citrus notes. The cheeses are carefully wrapped in nettle leaves, giving a distinctive finish and subtle herbaceous flavour.

Pairing Suggestion - STOCKANS THICK OATCAKES

Gorwydd Caerphilly
Weight: approx 200g.

Gorwydd Caerphilly is made following a traditional recipe and working the curds by hand, the cheeses are usually matured for a minimum of three to four months (which is longer than most caerphillys') to give a wonderfully deep flavour that is yet still fresh and clean tasting with slight citrus notes, combined with a surprisingly creamy, moist texture. This excellent cheese has deservedly won a number of prestigious cheese awards.

A whole cheese weighs approx 4kg, if you would like a whole wheel please contact us and we can arrange this for you.

Quickes Extra Mature Cheddar

Matured for 24 months, this is an award-winning cheese that packs a punch with extremely complex flavours, a good bite and a strong finish.

The smooth, silky golden paste that will often ooze out over a delicate, fresh and citrussy centre.

Baked Fig Ball
Weight: approx 110g.

The sweet, sticky fig paste is delicious with sharp, zesty cheeses such as a good Parmesan or Pecorino. The Seggiano Fig Ball comes from Cosenza, Calabria, in southern Italy. It is a delicious and traditionally ingenious way of preserving the juicy dottato variety of figs, which have tender skins, soft seeds and are unique to the region. The figs are pickled when plump and air-dried under nets before cooking for eighteen hours at a very low temperature. By this time they are sticky with caramelised fig juices.

Pairing Suggestion - strong blue cheeses like BLEU DES CAUSSES

Each fig ball weighs approx 200g

Serves upto 6 People.

Cheeses are cut fresh to order, once cut they have a 12-14 day best before date
