If you have been planning to include a cheeseboard this Christmas, this hamper has got you covered. We’ve included 4 kinds of cheese from Northumberland which are:

  • Blue House Goats Settled Goats Cheese is a mild, light soft cheese similar to Coulommiers cheese.
  • Doddington Cheese Cuddy’s Cave is a semi-hard cheese with a mild flavour and citrus afternotes (please note this cheese is made with traditional rennet).
  • Northumberland Cheese Company Redesdale Sheep Cheese & Nettle Cheese. The Nettle Cheese is Northumberland Cheese Co‘s bestselling cheese. The fresh nettle cuts through the creaminess of the cheese. Redesdale Sheep Cheese is the first cheese by Northumberland Cheese Co a sweet, subtle cheese with a refreshing tang.
Local cheese included in the hamper
Cheese, please!

Serve with Hadrian’s Game Larder‘s Venison Salami. It smells divine and can accompany all the cheese we’ve included in the hamper. The strong smoky flavour will complement a mild, soft cheese such as the Settled Cheese by Blue House Goats.

Or serve canapes with the venison with crackers, mustard and pickles with a bold, fruity red wine or a festive ale such as Muckle Brewing‘s Muckle Berry.
