The most classic (and repeated) cheeseboard known to man. Cheddar, Brie and Stilton. If you go into any restaurant, pub, bar, hotel and ask for a cheeseboard, you will most likely get those 3 cheeses.

So we have put our own spin on Cheddar, Brie and Stilton, to show that even something quite standard can grab your attention and take things to the next level. Because not all cheddars are made equal (see our The Many Faces of Cheddar box!), the UK makes a Brie style cheese that is arguably better than any French Brie, and Stichelton is a Stilton-style cheese that is even more traditional than Stilton itself!

Every module not only includes all of your cheeses (and accompaniments where applicable), you will also receive a whole host of information as well as interactive materials to tutor you through the process so you can learn about cheese wherever you choose to get your cheese.ed box delivered. We like the idea of keeping all your modules and notes in one place to refer back to, creating your very own cheese journey almanac. To help with this, in your first delivery we include a neat clip and cover sheets to stay organised.

Delivery Information Close Icon for Delivery Drawer

During checkout, you will be able to select your preferred delivery date. This is great if you're buying as a gift or are organising your cheese in advance. The cheese will be packed in chilled, insulated boxes (that look great!) and will always be prepared on the day it is dispatched. A few other handy pointers:

- We use DHL nationwide and Packfleet within the M25

- Please use the delivery date you have selected as a guide rather than a guarantee.

- Your cheese will arrive in the best condition. It will have been prepared freshly and will not have been with our courier beyond our maximum of 48hrs

- You will receive delivery notifications for when your order is dispatched that mean you can track when it’s in transit

If you aren’t in for your delivery, this won’t matter. Our couriers will leave your cheese in you designated safe place in our climate controlled packaging.

We’re a small business working with an (incredible) perishable product. For advice on delivery or any cheesy questions, get in touch via the live chat or on hello@thecheesegeek.com

What is cheese.ed?

First and foremost it’s cheese. As you would expect, epic artisan cheese is at the centre of every module (after all, it’s what we do best). On top of this, we have focused each module on a specific aspect of the cheese world with the aim of answering some of those always asked but never answered questions. Each module is accompanied by detailed worksheets that give you the chance to rate different aspects of the cheese and make your own notes. Whilst this is starting to sound a little like school, it’s very much not. Unless school involved sitting at home eating cheese.

The cheeses in this module


Our classic cheeseboard cheddar, full-bodied and delicious


Not just any cheddar, not just any clothbound, raw milk, farmhouse cheddar made in Somerset. This is officially the best cheddar in the world, as voted in the past 2 World Cheese Awards, and amongst the best 16 cheeses in the world on both occasions. 


Baron Bigod

An exquisite English brie-style cheese.


Made at Fen Farm, Suffolk, Bigod is made with the milk of Montbeliarde cows, and the only raw milk farmhouse Brie-style cheese made in the UK. Taking on such a famous cheese such as Brie is ambitious to say the least, but my view is that this is hands down the best Brie style cheese made in the world.



A non-pasteurised, artisan version of a Stilton.


A farmhouse Stilton-style cheese made with raw milk in Nottinghamshire, Stichelton cannot be called Stilton as the milk is not pasteurised. As a result, it is an homage to how Stilton was made pre-1980s. Joe Schneider matures the cheese 50% longer, and you can really tell by the incredible depth of flavour. As good as any Stilton out there!
