How do you take a Cheese Geek stalwart and add a flavour of Christmas? We considered tinsel - too garish; glitter - too crunchy; Father Christmas imprinted on the top of each Ba...how about we just let the guys at Fen Farm do their thing.
Do their thing they did. Truffled Baron Bigod is hitting Cheese Geek boxes for the first time this winter. Maker Jonny Crickmore uses his own mascarpone mixed with Tartuflanghe Summer Truffle Cream to create - and it’s a gem. Bigod is luxurious at the best of times but the truffle takes it to a new levels of decadence. It calls for something bubbly.
If you need a Bigod reminder, think of it as British Brie but better. Legendary Montbelliarde cows (whose home is Suffolk), rich and buttery with smooth earthy mushroom, he delivers every time.
