Must-stock Cheeses for Christmas 2017

Don’t come up short this yuletide. Cheese and chilled food specialist, Rowcliffe, shares the seasonal must-stocks your customers will adore

● SOFT
Baron Bigod: a handmade creamy bloomy-rind cheese from the farm’s very own raw Montbeliarde cow milk. It has a smooth silky texture and golden curd with warm earth, farmyard and mushroom flavours. It is the only traditional raw milk Brie de Meauxstyle cheese produced in the UK.

● BLUE
Colston Bassett Stilton (PDO): a vegetarian, mellow and a creamy pasteurised Stilton that offers melt-in-the-mouth perfection. An essential for a festive cheeseboard.

● TERRITORIAL
Sparkenhoe Red Leicester: unpasteurised and orange in colour. Handmade in Leicestershire from unpasteurised milk and created using a rediscovered old recipe.

● HARD
Westcombe Cheddar (PDO): an unpasteurised hand-crafted West Country Farmhouse Cheddar. Award winning and has a deep, complex flavour with long notes of citrus, hazelnut and caramel. The smooth breakdown keeps the delicious flavours lingering on the palate.

● GOAT
Cerney Ash: an award-winning unpasteurised, vegetarian goat’s milk pyramid with a soft creamy white texture. It is hand-coated with an oakash/seasalt mix and gives a hint of lemon, with flavours deepening as it ages.

● EWE’S
Pavé Cobble: a lactic-style ashed cheese in the shape of a flat-topped pyramid. It has a creamy slightly citrus flavour and its appearance changes from a silvery grey mould to a thicker, green/blue rind as it matures
