1kg Révérend Brie

reverend brie

Brie Révérend is a soft cheese produced from pasteurised cow’s milk. This brie is made in the French town of Nanterre, located east of Paris. It is covered with a soft edible layer formed by the mold penicillium candidum. This cheese is pale ivory with a creamy texture and a mild light flavour.

The Brie will taste great at room temperature with crackers or crusty bread. It also goes a treat with light coloured fruits such as pears or grapes. Or if you so desire is a great accompaniment to acidic, herbaceous, dry whites like Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc. Sparkling white wines also pair well with Brie cheese; so whether Champagne or Cava you will have a great pairing with this traditional French Brie.

385g Barbers Mature Cheddar

barbers 1833

Barbers 1833 Vintage Reserve Cheddar represents the summit of Barbers family dairy who have been farming and making cheese at Maryland Farm in Ditcheat, Somerset since 1833, making cheddar over six generations. Only a few vats each month are deemed good enough to be matured for 24 months to reach its full potential.

The result is a cheddar that is powerful in its intensity with an unrivalled complexity and depth of flavour. Whilst the cheese retails a distinctive smooth and creamy background it often produces a slightly crunchy texture that is a result of the natural development of calcium lactate crystals late in the ageing process.

A must for the cheese board or as an ingredient to add fantastic depth and intensity to a recipe.

310g Burwood Bole

 

Burwood bole

Burwood Bole is a handmade unpasteurised cows milk cheese made in a log shape.  It is made at Chalke Valley Cheese by James McCall and matured in his washed rind room at Gold Hill Organic Farm, Child Okeford, Dorset. Burwood Bole is a semi-hard washed rind cheese which has a slightly firmer texture in the centre.

We have picked it for our selection due to its handmade artisanal nature that is simply irresistible. It has lemony undertones and a sweet nutty taste. It pairs very well with a green salad or crisp apple for when a heavy meal maybe seems too much. Or once again just another great cheese that slices into beautiful rounds to keep variety on your board this Christmas.

500g Cropwell-Bishop Stilton

 

Cropwell Bishop

Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton has a rich tangy flavour, and a velvety-soft texture that makes it melt in the mouth. To allow this Stilton to develop its unique flavour, it is normally aged to 12 weeks. It is crafted carefully by hand, using methods that have changed little since the 17th Century. It is made using vegetarian rennet, and around 78 litres of fresh, local milk from the Vale of Belvoir, Nottinghamshire.

Interestingly, it is the only Stilton ever to be served on Concorde. When it comes to quality, the Classic Blue Stilton is hard to beat. Proof of this can be found in the awards it has won, and the 2,500 competitors it fought off to become Supreme Champion of the 2009 Nantwich International Cheese Show.

Like most cheese, the Classic Blue Stilton should be stored in the fridge and brought up to room temperature before eating. Although it is mouthwatering in its own right, its distinctive flavour pairs delightfully with pudding wines, port, sherry and claret; and if you are trying to reduce the flow then will go great with walnut, honey and pears.

 250g Cerney Goats Pyramid Ash

 

Cerney Cheese

This interesting cheese is handmade using unpasteurised goat’s milk and vegetarian rennet by Cerney Cheese in the Cotswold village of North Cerney, Gloucestershire with locally source goats milk.  Since 1983 they have used the original hand-made process of cheese making and tell us they like their milk-producing goats to be loved, cared for and preferably named! Every stage of the cheese making process is performed by hand, from ladling and pressing the curd into moulds, to gently patting oak ash on the Pyramid or tying rafia around the Vine.

The Cerney Goats Pyramid Ash is a medium fat valancay type soft goats cheese. It is made in a truncated pyramid shape, coated with oak ash and sea salt mix. The flavours are fresh and mild which develop into a deeper flavour.  It is a multi award-winning goats cheese with a fluffy, curdy texture with a little softening under the rind. It has smooth lemony texture and taste with a hint of Almond.

It provides a perfect companion to various cooking menus, preparations and recipes. Its taste and unique tang can give a refreshing taste and can also be used to improve the flavors of vegetables. If cooking with it seems all too much, the interesting shape and appearance will really bring variety to your cheese board.

250g Tunworth Camembert

 

Tunworth Cheese

Quite possibly the ‘jewel in our crown’ when it comes to our selection of cheeses. The Tunworth Camembert made by Hampshire Cheeses a small locally run business, who are dedicated to producing quality cheese in small controlled batches. It is made from a herd of Ayrshire cows who are grass fed on the Hampshire Downs all year round.  It comes with significant celebrity endorsement with Raymond Blanc calling it, “The best Camembert in the world”; Michael Slater writing in the Observer, “My favorite melting cheese is a ripe Tunworth”; and also the Camembert of choice at the prestige Cavendish hotel group.

Tunworth has a long lasting sweet, nutty flavour and a creamy texture with a thin wrinkled rind. Hampshire Cheeses first add specific starter cultures to warm milk. The animal rennet is then added and the curd begins to set. After several hours they cut the curds into one inch cubes and place them gently into cheese moulds. The cheeses drain overnight and are dry salted the next day. From the production room they are placed on racks and taken into the ripening room where they grow their white coats. They are then wrapped and boxed in special poplar boxes and placed into a maturing room for several weeks.

It has a delicate, think rind with a rich, creamy yellow interior that gently oozes but does not run away. Whilst there is a slight bite to the rind, the centre melts in the mouth and the pair of textures complement each other well. The aroma of the cheese is nutty with a semblance of mushrooms, while the flavour is rich and sweet it is also fruity and earthy. As with most Camembert it is best enjoyed warm for dipping in crunchy breads or similar.

180g Welsh Dragon Cheddar

 

cheese1

Finally, we have a selection of three Welsh Dragon cheddars, mild, mature and vintage, produced by South Caernarfon Creameries – the oldest and largest dairy co-operative in Wales. Their dairy lies in the foothills of the Snowdonia National Park in North West Wales where their farmers produce the milk for the cheese with is cultured on the family owned dairy farms in North Wales, Mid Wales and Ceredigion.

Dragon Welsh Cheddar cheese are made using fresh Welsh milk from their member farms. Dragon is an award-winning range – which has been recognised at the British Cheese Awards, World Cheese Awards, International Cheese Awards, Global Cheese Awards and many more. Dragon produce an authentic Welsh Cheese with strong Welsh provenance and made using traditional methods.

Cheese making at South Caernarfon Creameries has retained traditional production methods, still salting by hand on open tables. This allows the flexibility to make a range of cheeses which would not be possible using the fully automated equipment found in many modern creameries around the world. The cheese is matured for up to 18 months, which results in a distinctive flavour making a great melting or sandwich cheese, or for producing sources. It also will sit well as a premium cheddar to ensure all tastes are accommodated on you Christmas cheese board.

Ultimate Plum Pudding

 

This award winning Ultimate Plum Pudding is available in 2 sizes. What makes it different? To some extent it’s the balance of the ingredients so the flavours don’t fight or dominate each other. It’s the variety of ingredients used and of course it’s the fine ingredient quality too – but then everyone claims that. The main difference is that The Ultimate Plum Pudding Company make it with an historial family recipe. They dont inject the alcohol after cooking, the fruits are steeped for at least 24 hours in brandy and sherry so the fruits are plump and bursting with flavour. The pudding are mixed gently, and are hand flattened after filling so they sit properly on the plate. They then steam without pressure to let the flavour develop slowly and stop before they caramelise and go bitter.

Two days natural cooling and then they are packed and stored so they are mature when sent. The result is a light, sweet (but not too sweet), luxuriously delicious, celebratory pudding. They get many compliments especially from people who are convinced that they ‘dont like Christmas Pudding’. The Ultimate Plum Pudding Company are truly proud of this pudding, as are Wren Davis for bring it to you for delivery this Christmas.
