Elvas sugarplums (each)

£1.65 each
From La Fromagerie

£1.65

Recommended by La Fromagerie!

The famous Greengage Plums, the queen of plums, well known for its flavour and fragrant aroma and for it’s sweet taste and juicy texture, is the fruit used on this unique product. Grown for centuries in Elvas, in the Alentejo region, in the south of Portugal, these plums are farmed in an environmentally sound way, avoiding pesticides and other agrochemicals.
 
Sugar Plums are an integral part of the Nutcracker Suite story and if inspiration were needed,  then the craft of the Portuguese fruit preserving producers played their role.  These Plums (in fact they are Greengages) were first introduced into Britain by the Port importers and captured the imagination of Christmas and the Festive Spirit.  Enjoy with both hard fruity cheeses, or fresh goat’s cheeses, or indeed with a glass of Port or Armagnac.

Extra cream is added to cow's milk curds, which are stretched and shredded in a spun cheese purse. A little like mozzarella, but richer and creamier.

Beaufort d'Alpage (250g)

Savoie, Unpasteurised Cow's Milk, Traditional Rennet.

Classic high mountain cheese selected from small traditional producers choosing cheeses from the summer milk forms made and matured in the mountain chalets.

Creamy, pale gold colour, smooth but as it ages cracks appear ripening the cheese. Lovely almost sweet nutty flavour, rich and never abrasive on the tongue even with aged cheeses. The high mountain cheeses benefit from cattle grazing on supremely clean, unpolluted summer studded with aromatic flowers and alpine flora.

Leon. Mixed cow’s milk and goat's milk blue cheese covered in vine leaves.  A rich and creamy cheese with well spread blue moulds and a tangy taste similar to Roquefort.  Younger cheeses are more crumbly and less intense.

Camembert, 250g (each)

£7.45 each
From La Fromagerie

£7.45

Recommended by La Fromagerie!

Normandy, Unpasteurised Cow's Milk, Traditional Rennet.

Traditional farmhouse made cheese with a soft supple texture and bloomy white rind tinged with rust to show through (denotes matured on straw). Best eaten when moist and not too melting. A fruity aroma with a rich earthy flavour.


Camembert baked in its box, a Nigel Slater recipe
Serves 2-4 as an aperitif

Remove the paper wrapping from the cheese and place the cheese back in its wooden box. With a sharp knife, slash the top of the cheese in half a dozen places. Stuff the holes with thinly sliced shards of garlic and drizzle a little white wine over the top. Replace the wooden lid. Bake in an oven preheated to 180C for approx. 25 mins or until hot and bubbling.

Serve with mixed salad leaves such as chicory and rocket and a dry white wine.

Haut Artois, Unpasteurised Cow's Milk, Traditional Rennet.
 
A hand made cheese from the nuns at the Abbey, who work alongside the Trappiste monks at the neighbouring monastery at Mont des Cats. The dark red-brown rind has been washed in local beer, and the tender supple texture of the cheese is not overwhelming or bitter. The taste is nutty and savoury and delightful as a lunchtime snack with crusty bread. With a little maturing the cheese becomes more earthy with the hoppy beer notes coming forward. Beer is the best partner, although a dry red wine not too tannic works too.
