Exceptional cheeses need accompaniments that will complement their individual flavours. We’ve taken great care to select products that pair perfectly with the cheeses we sell. Remember, if you would like any advice or recommendations for planning a cheeseboard, we’re always happy to help.
If you’re looking for crackers, crispbreads and oatcakes that won’t compete with subtle delicate cheeses, you’ll find the crispiest handbaked choices here. If you like to contrast silky soft cheeses with sweet flavours and palate-pleasing textures, why not try some delicious artisan fruit and nut studded toasts?
We stock outstanding chutneys and preserves. Make sure you try Eastgate Larder’s medlar cheese, produced from locally grown medlars. We’re also very proud of our very own award-winning chilli jam, made in our Aldeburgh kitchen.
Beyond the cheeseboard we have flavoursome provisions to enjoy alongside cheese for lunch or pre-dinner nibbles. Create a classic ploughman's spread with Westcombe Cheddar, fig chutney and a meaty pork pie from Norfolk's Bray's Cottage. Or tempt your tastebuds with thinly sliced Manchego accompanied by authentic Spanish charcuterie and mouth-watering olives smoked locally here in Suffolk.
Cheese and wine is a classic combination. The right choice in your wine glass can elevate exceptional cheeses to new deliciousness! In collaboration with the experts at Heritage Wines we are delighted to bring you a special collection of English wines, hand-picked to match the flavours and textures of artisan cheese. Add a bottle to your basket to create a decadent cheeseboard or treat friends and family to an indulgent gift.
Medium-bodied and bursting with aromas of blackberry and black cherry, Bolney Estate Lychgate Red is a delicious easy pairing for cheese. Hints of peppery spice create a complementary match for the piquant flavours of blue cheeses such as Binham Blue, and the tangy finish of cheddars including Westcombe. Made from grapes grown on the edge of the Sussex South Downs, Lychgate Red has a soft tannic structure and acidity that refreshes the palate after each mouthful of creamy cheese, leaving an indulgent velvety finish.Please note you must be over 18 to purchase this product and it is available for courier delivery and collection from Slate Aldeburgh only.
