Brie de Meaux
Ile de France
Would it be Christmas without a slice of Brie de Meaux? (of course not!) The ‘King of Cheeses’ really steps into the spotlight over the festive season, gracing cheese boards around the world with its oozy texture and recognisable pong. An absolute classic and you can see why - with its rich, golden oozing centre held together by its bloomy white (sometimes rusty coloured) rind. Complex, earthy flavours of mushroom, damp leaves and butter that linger and leave you wanting more.
Delivery is not only free, and not only at a set day of your choosing, but also comes in a climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee.

Critical cheese questions: from the perfect cheeseboard to misunderstood cheeses
Eating cheese is more than just meal or a delight for us. It's a captivating journey, an indescribable feeling (yes we are referencing Aladdin on a magic carpet). We've sat down with Edward to answer some very important questions.
When it comes to Berkswell cheese, one thing is for sure…it looks like a UFO. Of course, it tastes pretty out of this world too! Its distinct look is all thanks to the fact that it’s moulded in a kitchen colander when being made, instead of being pressed, like most other cheeses.
