How much cheese do I need?

Is your cheese for after a meal or is it the main meal itself?

Speak to our deli staff who will guide you in the right direction

 

What accompaniments should I have with my cheese?

Why not enjoy your cheese board with some dried fruit, nuts, figs, honey, fresh bread, crackers or chutneys

 

"Don't serve straight from the fridge"

Take cheese out of fridge and cover in a cool, non- central heated place for 1 hour before serving

 

What can I do with any leftovers?

Keep your cheese paper to rewrap unused cheese which will help it keep longer in your fridge.  However hard cheeses left over can always be melted into a sauce or fondue, but if you choose well and look after them you won't need to resort to such violence
