WELCOME TO GOLDIE!

Cheese Geeks unite. This is probably the greatest selection of cheese ever brought together in one handsome box. Put a bow on it, this turkey is done. There will be no Goldie Looking Pain here as our ultimate Christmas box is dressed to impress and backed up by some seriously good cheese. The best there is from across the world at this time of year, and a chance for you to experience the same indulgence as The Cheese Geek himself at his Christmas meal.

We say that Goldie can look after 32 people but this selection is so good, we’re not going to argue if this is just for you. We also include the best condiments in the business: Red Onion & Port Marmalade from Rosebud Preserves, Pear & Brandy Jam also from Rosebud, 3 packs of Peter’s Yard Crispbreads and guaranteed pre 4pm delivery with APC.

We’ll also guide you through how to set up your cheeseboard making it the centrepiece of Christmas 2019. It’ll be talked about for years to come. Post it on insta and you’ll win the internet.

2 kilos of cheese. Put the kettle on, take a seat, and let me talk you through it (if you’ve read through our other Christmas selections, there are some similarities...we’ve thrown in a Vacherin and jumped up the grammage):

Westcombe Cheddar (400g) - 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.

Sparkenhoe Red Leicester (400g) - It's red. And it's Christmas. Why fight it? Sparkenhoe is in a league of its own, on a one cheese mission to dispel the myths that Red Leicester is boring and mild. The last remaining raw milk, traditional farmhouse Red Leicester made in the world, it’s nutty, buttery, with borderline caramel vibes. Show me the way to Leicester.

Comte (400g) - Yes, Comte. You’ve heard of it, you’ve tried it, you probably like it. Well that’s not telling half the story. Our Comte is a worldie - the difference being the length of maturation. Anyone can slice you up a 12 monther but will that leave you with a rich, nutty sweetness that reminds you of eating toffee or milk chocolate? NO. We insist on a minimum of 20 months here. It’s the best in the biz, no questions.

Vacherin (450g) - Made from the milk of Montbeliarde cows when they return home from their summer hols out on the alpine pastures, this seasonal cheese is so Christmassy, we’re surprised it’s not featured in any carols. Many will eat Turkey on December 25th, here at Cheese Geek HQ we will probably sit down with a baked Vacherin. Each. So goo-ey, Instagram will go nuts for it. Spoon it on to a Peter’s yard Crispbread. Then repeat...and repeat...and repeat. It can be very hard to stop actually, but at least you know you will have to stop in April when Vacherin stops being made until September, giving you plenty of time to get beach body ready.

Cropwell Bishop Organic Blue Stilton (400g) - Great for Grandad. Why do Grandads love blue? Beats us...we think this blue cheese should be enjoyed by everyone. The Bish is the true (gran)daddy when it comes to Stiltons though. Awards coming out of its veins, handmade, a recipe that goes back centuries. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. The result? Velvety but firm texture, rich, creamy and a salty kick from the rind. Christmas wouldn’t be the same without it.

NB. What you see is what you get. It’s tricky for us to swap cheeses in and out - if you’re looking to customise your box, consider The Lionel or The Tina.
