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.

It’s no coincidence that cheese connoisseurs and restaurateurs across the UK serve their finest cheeses on slate cheeseboards. Not only does cheese look irresistible on a skilfully crafted slate cheeseboard, its individual flavours are protected too. Slate is non-porous so does not absorb flavours or bacteria, or react to acids. It’s also eco-friendly, being an entirely natural and sustainable material.
Our slate cheeseboards are individually handcrafted by a family business in the heart of Lancashire. They are treated with a ‘food safe’ finish and can be safely washed in hot, soapy water. We also recommend applying a light coat of olive oil to keep the slate looking naturally beautiful.
