We have four ripening rooms – for hard & semi-hard, white bloomy & goat, fresh and, finally, blue. Italian cheeses are rubbed in olive oil to ensure they don't dry out. White bloomy (geotrichum & candidum) moulds on cheeses such as Brillat Savarin or Brie need careful monitoring on a daily basis. Our team works methodically to ensure every cheese reaches its peak of taste & texture.
BESPOKE SERVICE & STAFF TRAINING
Our cheese offering is tailored to the needs of our customers. We want to work with your team to create the right cheeseboard for your menu; from your sommelier to create wine-friendly pairings; with your chef, sourcing the right cheeses to cook with at the right price point; and ensuring your floor staff are confident in cutting, caring for & describing the product. Tasting notes will be provided, along with a bi-monthly newsletter updating you on what is best & coming into season. For us, staff training is paramount. Sessions can be held either at our warehouse or at your premises, especially when the season changes.
Kitchen cheese & dairy
