Dare we say it but Christmas is now well on the way and it’s time to start thinking of all the festive goodies you’ll be able to indulge in in just a couple of months time. Yule tide seems to be creeping into autumn and no sooner is the sun cream and flip flops packed away than the tinsel and fairy lights are filling the supermarket shelves. We love Christmas and it’s no surprise that we also love Christmas cheeses. Whether it be a creamy blue Stilton, an oozing Camembert or something a little different like our Apple, Cinnamon and Raisin Lancashire, we have everything you’ll need to spread the Christmas cheer this year.
Tuxford & Tebbutt Stilton
A classic choice, this traditional blue Stilton has been made to the same recipe using time honoured techniques since 1780. It is one of only six creameries in the world permitted to use the name Blue Stilton under the EU Protected Designation of Origin. Each cheese is matured individually and graded and turned by hand resulting in a delicious Stilton with rich and creamy flavours and a piquant finish.
A perfect treat for Christmas this Somerset Camembert from Lubborn Creamery, Cricket St Thomas is rich and creamy with a soft, edible rind. As it matures the curd softens and a buttery, yellow colour and full flavour develops. As a real treat try baking in the oven with some rosemary, garlic, thyme and maybe even some dried cranberries for that real festive flavour.
Red Waxed Wensleydale and Cranberry
Cranberries really come into their own over the Christmas period and this creamy Wensleydale is a welcome combination. Perfect as a gift for a cheese lover or great on a Christmas party cheeseboard this red waxed Wensleydale truckle from Ford Farm in Dorset is a sweet, fruity cheese with a rich creaminess and crumbly texture.
Christmas Apple, Cinnamon and Raisin
The clue’s in the name with this one, creamy Lancashire with apples and raisins and coated in cinnamon this makes a fantastic dessert cheese or is perfect for those with a sweeter tooth. A unique cheese with tangy, fruity flavours and a slightly crumbly texture it has both sweet and savory notes.
