We’ve assiduously picked a selection of seasonal Christmas cheeses to bring you a ‘cracker’ of a festive cheeseboard. First up, we have a Snowdonia Bouncing Berry Cheese, produced in Wales and very popular at Christmas. It has a deliciously flavoursome with a hint of sweetness from the cranberries, making it a great festive favourite. Next, there’s a Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton, which is produced by an award-winning cheesemaker, thanks to its very consistent great flavour, texture, and appearance. As a blue-mould cheese with a rich and mellow flavour and a piquant aftertaste, Stilton is especially popular at Christmas. Tuck in to your Vacherin Mont D’Or Cheese, which is exclusive to the autumn and winter months and unusually made with unpasteurised spring milk to produce a soft, wonderfully aromatic and velvety cheese. Enjoy it with bite sized potatoes, French bread, garlic cloves, and crudités. Maryland Mature Cheddar is a traditional farmhouse cheddar that is made in the traditional way to produce a good strong flavour. Finally, to complete the Christmas cheeseboard, we’ve included a English Goat Log, a delicious accompaniment for grilling with pesto or sundried tomatoes, which looks very attractive on a cheeseboard.
You can, of course, expect all the necessary accompaniments in your hamper, including some wonderful festive chutneys. A favourite of ours is the Highfield Festive Fruit Chutney, which is created using apples, ginger, cranberries, and spices for a rich, festive chutney that produces a beautiful Christmas taste when paired with cold meat, pâté or cheese. Another chutney to be found in your festive fine food hamper is a Highfield Boxing Day Chutney – it really is the perfect accompaniment to your Boxing Day buffet. A dark, rich mixture of vegetables, fruit, and festive spices, it works wonderfully with cheese and pies. To finish off your luxury food hamper, we’ve popped in the all-important cheese carriers, including Rick Stein Savoury Oat Biscuits with Cornish Sea Salt with their delightful savoury crunchiness and great taste of baked oats that is ideal for cheese and pâté. Fine English Cheese Crackers are also perfect for soft cheese, thanks to their delicacy and fragrance to polish off your festivities in style.
