Cornish Blue

Cornish Blue is perfect melted onto beef or, for a vegetarian alternative, crumbled over a roasted root vegetable salad

Ossau Iraty

This French sheep’s cheese is delicious accompanied by black cherries, fresh are best but a compote also works great smothered over crackers on a decadent cheese platter.

Lord of the Hundreds

This unusual cheese hails from East Sussex and uses raw milk from Friesland ewes, which means it’s completely vegetarian. Use it like Pecorino and add it to a rustic hazelnut and parsley pesto, before drizzling over pasta or salads.

Mont d’or AOP

Mont d’or AOP is at it’s best when simply warmed in the oven and poured over boiled potatoes, sautéed lardon and shallots
