Just one smell, one taste of this pecorino and you will be transported to the gentle, grassy hills of Tuscany. It is matured wrapped in hay, which imparts an extra flavour to the cheese. The taste is long and rich – nutty, grassy and sweet with hints of lanoline coating the end palate. Enjoy with a glass of your favourite red wine.

A semi-matured goat’s cheese from Berry in France. The Berry region is well known for ashed goat’s cheese like Selles-sur-Cher, but Pavé du Cardinal is a rare find. Under the light white rind the paste is creamy and oozy. The lactic flavour is rich with a pleasant mouth coating feeling. Matured to perfection from French affineur Hervé Mons.

Soft, dense and fudgey, St Marcellin has a taste you can’t quite get enough of. It is quite unique in that the Geotrichum rind creates a completely different flavour to what you find in a brie or camembert – it is more earthy, rich and nutty and the texture is super-creamy.

This delightfully oozy cheese is a mild washed rind style made with 100% sheep’s milk from the Argental region of France (most famously known for Roquefort cheese). When young, the flavours are creamy and slightly sweet, with a hint of mushroomy flavour coming from the light orange rind and a gentle nuttiness characteristic of sheep cheese. More mature cheeses will have a stronger flavour, with more pronounced earthy flavours.

One of the ‘super-stinkies’! This runny little cheese is washed with a local grape spirit during its maturation, to encourage the development of a sticky, orange rind with rich mushroomy and cured meat flavours. If you like strong cheese, you will love Epoisses.

Translate by “Ewe fern”, this semi soft sheep’s milk washed is dressed with a little fern sprig. As the cheese looks not offensive in flavours, after the first bite you will be wowed by a pleasant but strong “sheepish” flavour. The gritty rind fades away quickly in month, a long lasting earthy and nutty flavour.

What a better way to combines two favourites – Cheese & Champagne. This light coloured washed rind is usually washed with champagne, or served with champagne poured in the middle cavity (fountaine). With a salty flavour the paste is dense but melt in the mouth. The perfect cheese for a festive cheese board.
