European Favourites Cheese Selection

GF

Our European cheese selection contains five of Europe’s tastiest and best-loved cheeses. To add a delightful seedy crunch to these exceptional cheeses, we have included a box of Gourmet Sodabread Gluten Free Multiseed Toasts.

French Comté Vieux AOC is made from the rich milk of Montbéliarde cows. It is matured for twice as long as standard Comté for greater sweetness and depth of flavour. Brie de Meaux is another classic taste of France. Soft and creamy, the flavour is nutty with a hint of mushroom. Our third French choice is Morbier. Originally made from the leftover curds of Comté, the distinctive ash line through the centre of this cheese was added for protection until the next day’s curds could be added to complete the cheese. From Spain, we have Picos de Europa, a semi-soft blue-veined cheese made from a blend of pasteurised cow’s and goat’s milk. This unique cheese is wrapped in maple and chestnut leaves. Monte Enebro, another Spanish choice, completes our selection. This incredible complex soft-ripened goat’s cheese is cave cured with a Penicillium Roqueforti rind. Read more
