Somerset has a great history of producing fine cheddars linked to the damp climate and resultant lush pastures. One of the three traditional cheddar cheeses, Montgomery, Keens and Westcombe will be included in this selection. But Somerset is not limited to cheddar. The cheese-makers produce a fine range of goats, sheeps and even buffalo cheeses too!

Each selection contains four cheeses similar to those shown below and has a total weight of around 800g (this is only a guide as quantities can and do vary depending on the cheese included).

Exmoor Jersey Blue [ Cow Blue Veg Unpas ]
Exmoor Blue Cheese Company, Somerset

Exmoor Jersey Blue is a semi-soft blue veined cheese. It has a buttery taste which comes from the rich Jersey milk with herbal undertones. The blue is just strong enough to give a little tang without overwhelming the background flavours.

£19.30/kg *

Fosseway Fleece [ Ewe Hard Veg Pas ]
Somerset Cheese Company, Somerset

This dense and waxy ewes milk cheese is a firm favourite at the local markets I attend. It has a sweet nutty flavour with a lingering depth of flavour which makes it rather special.

£23.39/kg *

Goldilocks [ Cow Mould Ripened Veg Org Pas ]
Daisy and Co, Somerset

This individual white rinded cheese is a brand new Camembert style English cheese made at the Daisy and Co Dairy near Bruton in Somerset. It is made from pasteurised organic Jersey cows milk which results in a yellowy appearance and a creamy texture.

£4.50 each individual 150g cheese *

Montgomery Mature Cheddar [ Cow Hard Unpas ]
J.A. and E. Montgomery Ltd, Somerset

This hard cows cheese is made with full fat, unpasteurised milk with traditional animal rennet. At ten months old this cheddar is relatively moist with a slightly rough, granular texture. When young the taste is deep but soft. As it ages it becomes drier and grainier and develops a ‘bite.’

£18.45/kg *
