Adam’s five and why he loves them:

The Cheese Geek Cornish Yarg

Cornish Yarg

Showcased at Adam’s Cornwall restaurant, the Ugly Butterfly, and a cheese he absolutely loves. 

“Yarg showcases the hand-craftmanship, skill and care that goes into making great food, with every cheese wrapped in nettles by hand.”

The Cheese Geek Witheridge

Witheridge

A feature at The Loch & The Tyne, Adam’s pub in Old Windsor.

“Using as many parts of our ingredients is core to our ethos, so I absolutely love the fact that Nettlebed Creamery use the hay from their farm to age their cheese – layering more flavour of the land.”

cheesegeek 200g St Andrew's Farmhouse Cheddar

St Andrews Farmhouse

“There’s a real power in the sense of environment and how well a product reflects the land it came from. That’s what makes St Andrews Farmhouse cheddar so special…and that it’s produced so close to where I grew up!”

cheesegeek Eastwood

Eastwood

A cheesegeek exclusive cheese that has been a feature on the tasting menu at 1* Michelin restaurant Frog, by Adam Handling.

“The UK produces cheese that rivals the best in the world, and Eastwood is a Brie de Meaux style cheese but with an unmistakably British edge to it that works so perfectly in my cheese dish at Frog – Eastwood, cherry bakewell. Delish!”

The Cheese Geek Harrogate Blue

Harrogate Blue

“This was the first cheese from cheesegeek that we put on our menu at Frog, and we absolutely loved it. A perfect balance of creaminess, richness and sharpness, a complex blue cheese.”

The Cheese Geek Wild Cloudberry Jam

Cloudberry Jam

Great cheese deserves a great condiment and there's nothing better than Cloudberry Jam
