Cheddar. Probably the most common word in the human language, along with ‘yes’, ‘no’ and ‘Manchester United’.

But whilst we have probably all eaten cheddar at some point in our lives/the last five minutes, how much do we really know about it? Are all cheddars basically just the same? And if they’re not, which is our favourite?

The only way to answer these questions, is to taste them side by side, something most of us have probably never done. (feel free to take some of that Cathedral City out of your fridge to taste alongside…it’s ok, I know it’s in there)!

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

Westcombe Cheddar

A historic Somerset cheddar


One of only 4 traditional, raw milk, farmhouse cheddars still made in Somerset, Tom Calver works his magic to create this authentic representation of truly historic cheddar


Keen's Cheddar

Made in Somerset by the same family since 1899


The second of our traditional Somerset cheddars, Keens has been around since time immemorial, and carries an unmistakable character. 


Montgomery's Cheddar

A golden and glorious classic British cheddar


Number three from our small universe of traditional Somerset cheddars, and the oldest of them all. Jamie Montgomery is currently at the helm, and there is nothing quite distinctive as a Montgomerys…many cheese lovers swear by it…are you one of them?


Isle of Mull

We're travelling to Scotland for this farmhouse cheddar


A great cheddar, particularly when using raw milk, should convey an unmistakable sense of place. A taste profile unique to the land from which it came. Isle of Mull encapsulates this as much as any cheddar I’ve ever come across. With every bite you’re transported to the barren coastal landscape, and salty sea air rushing past your cheeks.


St Andrew's Cheddar

Another classically Scottish Cheddar made by Jane Stewart


Much like Isle of Mull, St Andrews Farmhouse Cheddar conveys a sense of place. But instead of coastal, salty sea air, when I take a bite of St Andrews, it’s like I am walking through the farm, surrounded by the cows.
