Devon seems to draw cheese-makers who have perfected their art over the years. The styles are wide and varied. Perhaps my personal favourite is Beenleigh Blue - a truly stunning ewes' milk cheese made at the Ticklemore Dairy near Totnes. My son loves the creamy Brie of neighbouring Sharpham and my daughter asks for Sharpham Rustic-with herbs and garlic. All are exquisite and there are a large number of these delightful cheeses to choose from.

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).

Sharpham Rustic with herbs [ Cow Semi-hard Veg Unpas ]
Sharpham, Devon

This is a beautiful semi-hard cheese with added garlic and herbs, made in a colander, which gives it a lovely space ship like shape. It is matured for 6-8 weeks giving a youthful cheese with a rich creamy texture. It is yellowy gold in colour with a gentle, mild flavour and a natural rind which forms during the maturation process resulting in a delightful white crust.

£14.95/kg *
