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

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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
