Types of Cheeses
Cheese is often sorted by texture and then how it’s ripened.
Fresh & Soft Cheeses
In the fresh or unripened category, we find Mascarpone, Mozzarella, Halloumi and Feta cheese - quite soft and usually a little tangy. With the addition of white mould, we find favourites like Brie, Camembert and goat milk cheeses like Sainte Maure and Crottin de Chavignol. Classic blue cheeses are the British Stilton, French Roquefort, Italian Gorgonzola.
Semi-Firm & Hard Cheeses
Getting firmer now, we move into the world of Alpine cheeses that are perfect for melting into a fondue - Raclette, Gruyère and Beaufort. Then at the hardest end of the spectrum, we find Gouda, Manchego, Parmigiano-Reggiano (a.k.a. Parmesan) and the classic Cheddar cheese.
Getting the most of out your cheese
The world of cheese is vast. There are many different styles, textures and flavours to work with, and choosing the right cheese is essential. Whether you want something to go well with some of our bread & wraps, a cream cheese to bring together the ultimate macaroni cheese sauce recipe, or you’re selecting the perfect blend of Swiss cheeses for an aromatic fondue; you should opt for the best. And the best is what we stock. Far beyond artisan wheels for a cheese platter. If you’re looking for shredded cheese for lasagne, sliced cheese for easy sandwiches, even lactose-free or vegan cheese, you’re in the right place.
