Do you stick to the same old cheeses each year or do you try new ones out?
Tell me the ones you love the most.

Blacksticks Blue
Somerset Brie
Cornish Cruncher
Wensleydale (maybe with fruit in it)

Cornish Cruncher. We only get it at Christmas because it’s twice the price of the other cheese.

GlamGiraffe Sat 21-Dec-19 22:24:48

Membranillo is most important, it makes everything wonderful. St felicien is a bit wonderful though!

gaggiagirl Sat 21-Dec-19 22:25:08

We always stick to a hard cheese a soft cheese and a blue cheese. Cheddar, brie and stilton usually.

Garlic crackers

AhoyMrBeaver Sat 21-Dec-19 22:28:05

Sage Derby.

Cambozola, Stilton, Godminster cheddar, Somerset Brie.

With grapes, oat cakes, pickled courgettes, red onion chutney and dried apricots.

MrsTumbletap Sat 21-Dec-19 22:28:35

This was also the best thing EVER but they don't seem to do it this year, Boxing Day cheeseboard will never be the same again!

If anyone manages to find this please let me know.

We have way too many because ewe all like different things! I think I've counted 12 cheeses...

RhinestoneCowgirl Sat 21-Dec-19 22:30:32

Bought our cheese today. We have a Bath blue, Somerset brie, extra mature cheddar, a smoked cheese, a hard goats cheese. Don't usually do cheese with bits in, but we do have a green thunder, which has garlic and chive I think.

RhinestoneCowgirl Sat 21-Dec-19 22:31:46

And I made Christmas chutney, which has apple and cranberry and lots of spices

MustardScreams Sat 21-Dec-19 22:36:35

Chaorce for super creamy delectable goodness.
Brie de meaux for stinky gooeyness.
Appleby’s Red Cheshire for tangy, salty, crumbly yum.
Rosary Ash for goat cheese
Pecorino for sheep/salt/hard
Gorgonzola dolce/piccante depending on how strong you like it.
Stilton! Christmas essential.
A flavoured cheese if you absolutely must.

The best crackers you can find
Quince or guava paste
Truffled honey
Frozen grapes
Celery that has had the outside peeled so there’s no grim strings.

I bought Epoisses, Stilton and Roquefort today.

Longdistance Sat 21-Dec-19 22:42:30

Mature cheddar
Gorgonzola or Roquefort
Austrian smoked cheese
Brie or Camembert
Onion chutney or Plum chutney
Nairn’s oatcakes
Digestive crackers
Balsamic vinegar and extra virgin olive oil for dipping

Normally would go for blue, rinded, goat, smoked, random and plain for a general cheeseboard. If post dinner party, prefer 3 large pieces ratger than lots of smaller bits. Plus variety of crackers (my preferred is water biscuits) with some fruit, a chutney and some membrillo.
Was recently given a Bleu D'affinois which was fabulous - @AnnelovesGilbert like a softer camozola. It was from waitrose.

thewinkingprawn Sat 21-Dec-19 23:51:57

Montagnolo - best cheese ever (blue, soft)

Thesuzle Sat 21-Dec-19 23:54:59

Black Bomber people, what’s wrong with you all
And Bois de Bourgogne think that’s how is spelt, very very creamy

BlouseAndSkirt Sat 21-Dec-19 23:58:25

Taleggio (or similar)

MiniMum97 Sun 22-Dec-19 00:03:13

Godminster cheddar. Oh my god it's the best cheese ever. And they are now doing a smoked version!

PoultryBallot Sun 22-Dec-19 00:06:47

@MrsTumbletap they also did a gorgeous finest ketchup but no more.

PoultryBallot Sun 22-Dec-19 00:08:17

Blue Vinny, when my dad was a very young boy it came with hoppers which if you got one was a special treat tcrshock

MeanMrMustardSeed Sun 22-Dec-19 00:11:41

Lolly34h Sun 22-Dec-19 15:57:01
