Delight in a carefully selected, local cheeseboard from our neighbouring counties of Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire accompanied by a trio of extremely scrummy chutneys from Vivia Crumps and award winning savouries from Stag Bakeries. A great way to top off a dinner party.
These locally sourced, hand-made cheeses are steeped in history and tradition. The melt-in-the-mouth Cropwell Bishop Stilton cheese has been made since 1949 – a Blue Stilton, matured for 12 weeks, with a rich tangy flavour and velvety soft texture.
The Lincolnshire Poacher cheese is handmade from the farms own herd of Holstein cows based in the Lincolnshire Wolds and has been run by the family since 1917. The cheese has a full, rich flavour having been matured for 14 – 16 months – a versatile cheese and great to cook with.
Last, but not least, the Sparkenhoe Red Leicester cheese is made from a traditional recipe, is matured and ripened for 6 months, bound with lard on Beechwood shelves which gives it a rich, long lasting flavour – a lovely, regular eating cheese!
To accompany these traditional cheeses, we’ve carefully selected three scrumptious chutneys from Vivia Crumps which all pair very well with strong cheeses. Handmade in rural Rutland, using only the finest ingredients and with no additives or artificial preservatives, Vivia’s chutneys have great flavours and textures that complement a variety of dishes.
And finally, you will find the perfect partners to cheeses from Stag Bakeries with the well seasoned, award winning water biscuit – a wonderful balance of saltiness to bring out the best in blue cheeses and the smoked butter cocktail oatcakes with a smokey flavour, a must have for a cheeseboard.
