5 cheese pairing ideas with Daniel Williams, Godfrey C Williams & Son

What’s on your dream cheeseboard?
A cheese wedding cake is essentially just a stacked cheeseboard, right? I’ve not long enjoyed my own dream 10-tier creation (A couple of years in the planning!) featuring Ogleshield, Alp Blossom, Cornish Yarg, and others.

What’s your all-time favourite cheese pairing?
Appleby’s White Cheshire and fruit cake. A Williams wedding favourite!

Any unusual pairings you’d recommend?
Creamy Blue cheese with milk chocolate-covered pretzels! The sweet/salty combo of the pretzel matches the creaminess of the blue. A great pairing with most creamy and full-flavoured blues, but outstanding with Tuxford & Tebbutt 1760 Blue.

What do you love to drink with cheese?
English wine. My current top pick is the Artelium Blanc de Blancs 2015 with Sharpham Elmhirst. This WineGB 2022 Supreme Champion from Sussex has a vibrant mousse and lemon posset palate that combines beautifully with the triple-cream freshness of the Devon cheese.

What must-have cheese kit would you recommend?
I love a good cheese book. When released, I’m looking forward to Steve Parker’s book on British Artisan cheese and English wine!
