Sheffield Cheesemasters – Christmas Cheese Selection Box
This Cheese Box is for Pre-Order and we are taking orders until 12th DECEMBER with doorstep delivery within Sheffield on SATURDAY 19th DECEMBER. You can add any additional items to be also added onto this delivery from our site.
We are delighted to put together for you a varied Christmas Cheese Selection. We have chosen 5 cheeses that we think will be great for both Christmas Day or just to be enjoyed over the Festive period.
The cheeses we have picked are:
- Baron Bigod Brie. This is an amazing creamy brie which we think is as good or better than any French Brie. Made in Suffolk by Jonny Crickmore.
- Stitchelton or Young Buck (Stilton). It has been a difficult year for small scale stilton makers due to COVID-19 but they are now back on track with the lead up to Christmas and are busy maturing their cheeses. We love both of these unpasteurised versions of a Stilton. Stitchelton is made on the Welbeck Estate near Worksop by Joe Schneider and Young Buck in Northern Ireland by Mike Thomson who trained as a Cheesemaker at the Artisan Cookery School also based on the Welbeck Estate. Both are highly skilled Cheesemakers and their cheeses superb.
- Hafod Chedder is from Wales and is an excellent farmhouse traditional Cheddar. Cheddar is the #1 favourite cheese in the UK so this is a guaranteed family favourite with much more depth of flavour than an industrially made cheddar.
- Cote Hill Blue. We can only say great things about this cheese as it was our inspiration for our Sheffield Blue which we launched in November 2019 and sadly we are unable to make at this time. The flavours are fantastic and popular even with the folk who say they don’t like “blue cheese”.
- The final cheese in our selection is Mrs Kirkham’s Lancashire made by the lovely cheesemaker Graham Kirkham on their family farm. This cheese was a winner of the British Cheese Awards in 2018 and has a great yoghurty flavour.
Each cheese is a generous 200g portion and we have included 2 locally produced chutneys and a box of crackers. We will also include our very own Sheffield Cheesemasters cheesy quiz which you can play with your family on Christmas Day!
- 5 x 200g varieties of Artisan Cheese
- 1 x box of mixed crackers
- 2 x full size chutneys
- 1 x information sheet about the cheeses and our cheese quiz (with answers!)
If you want to additional cheeses and make this a larger selection you can add any from our cheese section. You can also add a 1lb Pork Pie or any of the smaller Pork Pies from the Pies section.
