After the month we've all had, surely its time for a treat? We have some very special offers for you on all cheese purchased from Slate online until Tuesday 7 April.
From Friday 27th March we are putting new plans in place for our two shops in Suffolk.
SLATE ALDEBURGH will be OPEN from 9am to 1pm, Monday to Saturday. From our doorway, we will have cheese and provisions available to stock your fridge and freezer. We will be taking orders for collection and local delivery. Please call us on 01728 454 052 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
SLATE SOUTHWOLD will be CLOSED until further notice. We hope it won't be too long before the cheese is back in town.
We will also continue to dispatch cheese for nationwide delivery.
Thank you for your continued support and best wishes from Team Slate to you and your families.
Here at Slate, the arrival of a new batch of cheese in its seasonal prime always causes a flurry of excitement, as does our first taste of new up-and-coming cheeses. We love to celebrate awards or recognition for our favourite producers too. Right now, we can’t get enough of…
For those with a sweet tooth this Gouda is as close to caramel as cheese gets. Its always a hit with children and adults alike.
Weydeland VSOC Gouda is made in the Woerden region of Holland on the banks of the river Oude Rijn. Deep orange in colour with visible salt and protein crystals, this outstanding extra mature Gouda has been aged for an incredible three years (1000 days). The ‘VSOC’ in its name stands for ‘Very Superior Old Cheese!’ Weydeland VSOC Gouda has a delicious nutty caramel flavour and long finish, perfectly complemented by its crystalline crunch. Read more
This beautiful French cheese is one of my favourites. With its extended ageing it has a deep caramel and subtle almond taste.
This Comté Vieux AOC is matured for 18 months, twice as long as standard Comte. Longer maturation gives this nutty cheese additional sweetness and depth of flavour. The texture is firmer too with a studding of salt crystals that adds a delicate crunch. Made in Franche-Comté in the Jura mountains, our Comté Vieux AOC is made from the raw milk of Montbéliarde cows in accordance with strict AOC regulations. Read more
This lightly smoked cheese has all the creaminess of Gouda and is smooth on your palate.
Villa Fumé Smoked Gouda is creamy and slightly spicy with a natural smoke flavour. This award-winning cheese is made on a Dutch farm using thermised cow's milk — an intermediary treatment between raw and pasteurised, which retains natural enzymes and flavours while eliminating some bacteria. The cheeses are then smoked with artisan methods and matured on wooden boards for three to four months. Read more
The Norfolk alternative to Gruyere - a perfect cheese for slicing, grating and cooking too.
There are no mountains to be found near Copys Green Farm, Wighton, but this doesn't stop Catherine Temple producing Norfolk's very own Alpine-style cheese. Inspired by the local cheeses she discovered on a European cycling holiday, this semi-hard cheese is handmade to a Gruyere recipe using milk from the farm's own herd of Brown Swiss cows. Matured for six to nine months, Wells Alpine has a sweet, nutty flavour and a pleasant tang. Read more
