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.

Celtic Promise

Celtic Promise has a mystical name and while some think that it has crafted by fairies and elves in the forests of West Wales because this is such a truly magical cheese!

To get the creamy flavour and texture, Celtic Promise has been washed twice a week for seven weeks. This wonderful cheese has a sticky orange rind, a great pungent smell and a soft and rich full flavour. The cheese is wrapped to help protect its great washed orange rind.

Made by John Savage of Teifi Farmhouse Cheese in Ceredigion, Wales. This is a 500g piece of cheese, it’s unpasteurised and suitable for vegetarians.

    Bosworth Leaf | Goats Cheese

    This is a really lovely creamy goats cheese wrapped in a chestnut leaf. This is a really great soft goats cheese with a mild flavour that is salty sweet and goaty, if that makes sense?

    It is made by the Highfields Farm Dairy in Tamworth, Staffordshire.

    Bosworth Leaf Goat’s Cheese comes as a square shaped cheese wrapped in a chestnut leaf packaged as a whole cheese of 200g. Unpasteurised & suitable for vegetarians.

    The herd started in 1987 with just 100 goats – they now have over 350 goats in the herd, mostly crossed Saanen and Toggenburg. Approximately 220 nannies are milked morning and evening, each of which produces an average of 3 litres of milk per day some of which is used to make this tasty cheese

    Blue Vinney | Dorset Cheese

    Stilton lovers who fancy a change should try this lovely lighter, crumblier and savoury blue cheese.

    This is an awesome version of blue cheeses because its made with skimmed cow’s milk – and it is also lower in fat!

    Dorset Blue Vinny cheese could once be found in nearly every farmhouse in the county. It was an ideal way of using the ‘left-over’ milk after the cream had been skimmed off for butter-making. As a result the cheese had a very low fat content which was typically very hard, dry and crumbly, with little or no blue.

    The “blueing” was encouraged by a number of methods (in the old days!), for example dragging mouldy horse harnesses through the milk before adding the rennet, storing the cheese on damp hessian bags or even next to mouldy boots.

    You may be relieved to know that we no longer resort to any of these methods but instead the blue is introduced by means of a blue mould solution.

    The cheese originated from a process that’s hundereds of years old but was revived in the 80s by cheese maker Mike Davies.

    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.
