You’ve got the family round, we’re talking the grandparents, maybe aunts and uncles plus your tribe. There are repeats of Only Fools and Horses on the telly, you need something to support the incoming Queen’s speech. We hear you. Frankie hears you, and she comes bearing gifts.

It's just over a kilo of cheese with five varieties giving you the perfect, ready made, show-stopping cheeseboard. Condiments are sorted with Red Onion & Port Marmalade (shout out to Rosebud Preserves) and 1 pack of Original Sourdough Crispbreads (shout out to Peter’s Yard). You can also choose your delivery date so you can kick back, forget the Christmas cheese queue and take the plaudits when the big day arrives.

This isn’t just any cheese though. Let’s run through the superstars (she's a little like Myrh..ie!...but bigger! We think she's good for up to 10 people but who we are to judge your cheese capacity?!):

cornish kern (200g)

The Colonel. He holds a special place in Cheese Geek hearts - the most recent British Supreme Champion at the World Cheese Awards. That was back in 2017 - for us, he's still top of the tree.

Lynher Dairies (famous for their Yargs) take the credit. It's Gouda style but uses Alpine starter cultures opening up a multitude of dimensions. He's balanced, dense but then supple. Salted caramel, toasted hazelnuts and almonds, and although savoury, it just tempts and teases you with a little bit of nutty buttery sweetness...and all the flavours just linger beautifully in your mouth for the perfect amount of time. Absolute worldy of a cheese....literally.

Westcombe Cheddar (200g)

Cheddar is your go to cheese, we get it. But this isn't just any cheddar, this is Cranberries inspired chedd...WOAH. STOP! We don’t mean this glorious handmade with raw milk cheddar has been infiltrated by cheese-killing red berries, we mean it lingers. Does it have to? Yes it does, and we’re more than happy to let it. She’s deep, complex, with flavour notes of hazelnut and grass. Linger all the way as far as we’re concerned.

baron bigod (250g)

Like all great Bries, most notably the world famous Brie de Meaux, Baron Bigod (pronounced By-God, because it is so damn good!!) has an absolutely perfect balance between rich decadent butter, and smooth earthy mushroom. It's not sharp or salty like some Bries can be - eating it should always be an extravagant, comforting experience, and Baron Bigod delivers on every level.

Fen Farm have taken on the French at their own game and in our view, it's a comprehensive victory.

rollright (250g)

Rollright. Never ever Rollwrong. Simply put, it's a better, British alternative to Reblochon. But it's so much more. It's luxurious, it's buttery, it's rich...but with an immensely satisfying crunch. And don't forget the woodiness thanks to the spruce bark wrap.

Whilst the guys at King Stone Dairy in Gloucestershire took inspiration from the washed rind soft cheeses of France and Switzerland, they have taken it to another level here. Keep on rollin.

stitchleton (200g)

Not one to start arguments here but we believe Stichelton to actually be a truer version of Stilton than Stilton itself. Once you have your head round that statement, here's why:

There are a few rules that must be followed for a Stilton to be a Stilton - one of which states that it must be made with pasteurised milk. This was only brought in after a health scare in the eighties. So if you're looking for a blue cheese that actually follows the traditional Stilton recipe (raw milk, natural rennet), our friend Stichelton is your guy.

The rusty coloured rind has a slightly spicy tang, and it has a firm texture which is broken by the blue-green mould veins that run throughout. The flavour is nutty, a little sweet and slight toasted, with a creamy finish. A delight on any cheeseboard – this is a cheese with a great back story!

optional extra: Vacherin

The Rockstar of seasonal cheeses. If your Christmas wouldn't be complete without Mont D'Or gracing your table, when you purchase a Myrrhie, Frankie or Goldie, you can add her on at a 20% discount!
