East Anglian Cheese Selection

Our East Anglian Cheese Selection contains three very special local cheeses. East Anglia may not be a traditional cheese-making area but today’s award-winning producers are certainly causing a buzz. Without a history of cheesemaking, the farmers-turned-cheesemakers in this area create their exceptional cheeses inspired by a variety of recipes from around the UK and Europe. They use the creamy full-flavoured milk from happy herds that graze Norfolk and Suffolk’s rich and fertile pastures. Choose this selection to discover cheddar-style Norfolk Dapple, luxurious Baron Bigod and flavoursome Binham Blue.

For a beautiful wine pairing with Binham Blue, you can add a bottle of Bolney Estate's Lychgate Red to enjoy with our East Anglian cheese trio. This medium-bodied red wine brims with flavours of blackberry, cherry and peppery spice that enhance the piquancy of Binahm Blue, whilst good acidity refreshes the palate after each mouthful of creamy cheese.
