Blue Stilton | Whole Wheel

This is a beautiful whole wheel of Blue Stilton – 2.5kg in total.

Universally recognised as the King of Cheeses, this traditional English Blue Stilton is smooth and boasts an awesome full bodied flavour.

There are only six dairies that are allowed to make Stilton. In order to carry the name, the cheese must be made in the counties of Derbyshire, Leicestershire or Nottinghamshire from local milk which is pasteurized before it has been used.

It also must be made in the traditional cylindrical shape that gives Stilton the formation of its own crust or coat.

    Vacherin Mont Door | Cheese

    This cheese is so perfect – it is the kind of cheese that can bring tears to your eyes. The exquisite soft centre is unlike anything else out there on the market today.

    Their is only one way to eat Mont d’Or – and that is heated in the oven until the cheese becomes runny (usually no more than 15 minutes). This of course makes a superb starter and talking point. Here’s a great recipe!

    This is the French and unpasteurised version of Vacherin Mont d’Or which is made just over the border in Switzerland. It is indescribably creamy and gorgeous with the unmistakable aroma of alpine milk.
    Where’s it from?

    This AOC Mont D’Or is affineured and distributed by Charles Hennart. Mont d’Or comes in an attractive wooden box.

    Bath Blue | Organic Cheese | Vegetarian Cheese

    This is similar to a quality Stilton but even creamier and great tasting all year round. If you’re a Blue Cheese fan this simply has to be tried! Bath Blue is a creamy, smooth blue cheese with beautiful evenly spaced blue veins and a characteristic clean aroma, all in all a classic blue veined cheese made on contract from the milk of other organic herds and matured by us in our traditional stone built ripening rooms.

    It is made at Park Farm in Kelston, just outside Bath. Graham Padfield is a third-generation farmer, but the first in his family to make cheese: he started, back in 1993, with Bath Soft Cheese, and this is now the name of the company.

    Stinking Bishop

     

     

    This cheese is now world famous since it overtook Wensleydale as the cheese of choice in the Oscar winning “The Curse of the Were-Rabbit” (with Wallace and Gromit) – it was used to bring Wallace back from the dead.

    Demand for the cheese subsequently rose by 500%. Stinking Bishop deserves to be famous for purely its own characteristics, the ‘Bishop’ is extremely Pongy! If you havent tried it yet then you must try it once!

    What’s it taste like?

    This is a wonderful cheese with a catchy name and one of our favourites. It has a soft texture and a strong taste, which isnt quite as pungent as the name would suggest but extremely tasty.

    Here is a short video which gives you much more information on The Stinking Bishop.
