Our East Anglian Cheese Selection contains three very special East Anglian 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 with recipes from around the UK and Europe. They use the creamy full-flavoured milk from their own happy herds, who graze Norfolk and Suffolk’s rich and fertile pastures. This milk is transformed into their award-winning cheeses in purpose-built cheese dairies built on their farms.
Choose this selection to enjoy Norfolk Dapple Cheddar-style cheese, Baron Bigod or St Jude soft cheese and Binham Blue.
This selection includes:
I joined the Slate Cheese Club (SCC) in June 2020 after my first visit to the shop in lovely Aldeburgh on a week's holiday last October (a childhood holiday haunt). I was led to the shop by the delicious extra mature Snowdonia Black Bomber cheddar cheese in sandwiches supplied in the Two Magpies bakery on the other side of the High Street. The experience of entering and exploring the Slate delicatessen was second to none: a veritable cheese paradise! The selection and the staff were A1***. I should not then have left it so long to join the SCC but I avoided repeating that mistake by swiftly placing my first order. I was of course not in the least disappointed with the hamper which arrived in the post a few days later, exactly when requested. In dealing with and delivering the order, Slate's professionalism in preparation, presentation and promptitude was simply superb. Thank you so much. It would be as invidious as it would be impossible to choose between the three items in the East Anglian Cheese selection which I ordered: Baron Bigod, Norfolk Dapple and Bingham Blue. They are sumptuously stellar special! I also added several of the Snowdonia Black Bomber - just in case of an emergency as Paddington Bear says of marmalade sandwiches! This is but at most just the end of the very beginning. Brilliant customer care and courtesy. Very well done! Thank you so much!
We bought this for my father for Father’s Day and as always Slate didn’t let us down. He loved the cheese and their service was second to none. Thank you
