For the perfect cheeseboard, here are some ideas:
With a Meze Cheeseboard you present just one cheese and surround it with a range of carefully chosen accompaniments for both contradictory textures and complimentary flavours.
At Christmas time, you can really push the boat out and create something spectacular…
To make your own cheese crackers and breadsticks:
Poacher cheddar has an earthy and powerful taste that is nuttier than a mature cheddar with overtones of an aged alpine cheese. This flavour, combined with a chilli kick makes a great breadstick!
Light, elegant and fragrant cheese crackers that you can serve with cheese or store and have as a savoury snack with a glass of something delicious.
