Great British Cheese

National Cheese Week (7th to 15th September) is aimed at bringing awareness to the huge range of fantastic cheeses we have here in the UK. Some of the best cheeses are produced by small-scale artisan producers.

Great British Cheese
All of the products mentioned in this post including more Great British Artisan Cheeses can be delivered to your door by the Handpicked Food Store.
Pictured above is Farleigh Wallop by Alex James:
Farleigh Wallop’s log shape makes it easy to slice and grill. The Farleigh Wallop is rolled in thyme, and adds great flavour to the already full flavoured creamy goats cheese with a deliciously sharp bite.  
This cheese is so very moreish and I'd seriously go as far as saying one of the best goats cheeses I've ever tasted.

The cheese teamed up perfectly with Miller's Damsels - Charcoal handbaked wafers made from 100% unbleached stoneground wholemeal flour.  Topped with Fig Fruit Puree from The Fine Cheese Co.  Both figgy as you would expect and jammy.  Since it contains high levels of concentrated fruit you really only need a small amount and is especially good with goats cheese. 

I love some of the names British cheeses have, here are just a few:
Swaledale Old Peculiar - a hard cheese that when being produced is soaked in Theakston's Old Peculiar Ale.

Perl Las Organic - this cheese came about when a selection of mature Caerffili became naturally blue and has a strong but delicate taste.

Lancashire Strong Bomb - a creamy Lancashire cheese matured for 24 months. I have tried this before and it's excellent.

Cotswold Blue Brie by Simon Weaver - a Blue-veined brie with a rich creamy texture.

What's your favorite British Cheese?

Many thanks to Claire at The Handpicked Food Store for sending me the lovely cheese, biscuits and fig puree to try.

All opinions and thoughts are my own.  I was not required to write a positive review.  I only ever post reviews on products I like the look of, and therefore would buy myself.
