Ultimate Cheese Hamper

 

This is a great selection of some of the most revered cheeses around.

This cheese lover gift box is packed full of best sellers, that are also the strongest and smelliest creations.

This wonderful cheese box makes a great gift! It is made up of the following cheese:

* Epoisses has been banned on the Paris Metro because its extremely pungent aroma.

* There are no words to describe the smell of a Munster but it’s sweet taste belies its quite incredible stink.

* The soft and savoury taste of Oxford Blue’s creamy paste is shielded from the outside world by what looks like a brain that’s fallen in a pot of ink.

* And finally Finn deserves its place on the basis of its extravagant use of triple cream to give it a remarkable and strong taste.

Wigmore | Ewes Milk Cheese

Eating Wigmore is the nearest thing to an endorphine inducing substance that we’ve reviewed to date this stuff is sweet and creamy, it oozes high quality and the texture of this ewes milk cheese is incomparable.

Wigmore is made with ewe’s milk cheese with a heavenly soft paste and delicate creamy taste, this mellows perfectly with age.

In their experimental dairy Anne and her husband produced different types of cheese for projects within the institute and organised tasting panels.

She also visited the then few artisan cheese-makers in the country for consultations and this inspired a passion for artisan cheese. Suitable for vegetarians.

Global Cheese Knife

5.5 inch Global cheese knife

This superb looking knife has holes in its blade which allows it to cut through medium firm and firm cheeses without any sticking. The edge of the blade is ground on only one side and it is finely serrated for cutting through cheese rinds.

The prongs on the end of the knife help to pick up slices for serving. The knife also features a finger notch situated between blade and handle which gives the user some safety.

Global knives are manufactured by Yoshikin in Niigata, Japan. They were designed in 1985 by Komin Yamada. When Komin Yamada was commissioned for the job his mandate was to develop a range of knives that was truly new and revolutionary, using the best materials available and the latest manufacturing techniques. Made in Japan, Lifetime Warranty.

One thing that many people do not know is that Global knives have a hollow handle which is then filled with just the right amount of sand to create the perfect balance.

Banon | Soft French Cheese

This is a French farmhouse cheese, Banon comes uncooked and un pressed with a soft, fine, pale yellow centre. This is imported from Provence and made by the expert Jacques Hennart.

After an affinage of about two weeks the cheese is dipped in eau-de-vie, wrapped in chestnut leaves and tied with raffia. The leaves keep the young, slightly acidic cheese moist and impart a fresh vegetable flavour with a hint of wine.

This is a delightful cheese with a soft creamy texture, a slight tang, and a mild aroma of chestnut leaves.

Banon is quite mild in taste, soft and smooth. The cheese takes on the aroma and the colour from the chestnut leaf and gives the taste earthy tones.

Goats Cheese | Alex James | Farleigh Wallop

More ALEX JAMES CHEESE here

Farleigh Wallop is one of the great masterpieces from the Evenlode Partnership – which consists of cheese officianado Juliet Harbutt and Alex James of (Blur fame)

Farleigh Wallop is a wonderful goat cheese that is made in complete 115g rounds. It tastes fresh and clean and it has the slightest taste of thyme from the sprig that is pressed into the top of it.

It is reasonably firm with a delicate and subtle flavour.

What’s it taste like? Farleigh Wallop is more subtle than its washed cousin, Little Wallop, with a gentler, less obtrusive aroma. A sprig of Thyme rounds off its refined rustique look. No wonder it was voted Best Goat Cheese at 2008 British Cheese Awards.

Where’s it from? It is produced by the masters at White Lake Cheeses in Bagborough, Somerset which is a short distance from the Glastonbury festival site.

Here is a brief video about why Alex James went into cheese making:
