The Cheese Christmas Cake
- Cenarth Brie 1.2kg This traditional, organic, French-style Brie from Caws Cenarth has a distinctive and well-rounded mushroomy flavour which grows with age. It has a creamy white interior synonymous with a classic Brie, along with a delightfully gooey centre.
- Caerfai Caerffili 550g Caerfai Caerffili is a traditional organic Welsh Caerffili made at Caerfai Farm, just south of St David’s, Pembrokeshire. The cheese is made from cows specifically chosen for of the quality of milk they produce, including Norwegian Red, Brown Swiss and Montbéliarde.
- Perl Las 200g Perl Las, meaning ‘Blue Pearl’ in Welsh, is a superb organic blue cheese made by Caws Cenarth in Carmarthenshire. This delicious, golden, veiny cheese has become one of the most famous and highly regarded cheeses in Wales. It is delicately salty and creamy with a lingering blue aftertaste.
- Black Sheep 150g Black Sheep, a firm ewes’ milk cheese coated in a wax truckle, is one of the latest varieties created by Caws Cenarth. It is deliciously creamy with a subtle nutty tang, flavours that have already earned it Gold at The Royal Welsh Show in 2019.
*Some of these truckles will occasionally be out of season or out of stock. When this is the case we will replace them with something as similar as possible.
*All weights are approximate as these cheeses are all hand made so all truckles are slightly different.
