This Month's CheesesThe Neal’s Yard Dairy Subscription showcases three different cheeses each month, connected in some way by a location, season, recipe or occasion. This March the selection takes inspiration from St Patrick’s Day, an opportunity to celebrate some of the excellent Irish cheeses available. An ideal combination of a soft cheese, a blue cheese and hard cheese, this iteration offers inspiration beyond a simple cheeseboard - you can find some ideas on the Neal’s Yard Dairy Subscription Hub. Some Neal’s Yard Dairy employees have been known to sandwich Durrus in a flaky croissant, with lashings of butter and salt and vinegar crisps... Do let us know if you discover another snack worthy of a cheesemonger’s lunch! And last but not least, by savouring this cheeseboard, you are helping to support the makers of British and Irish cheese, preserving time-honoured cheesemaking traditions and fostering exciting new ones too. We hope you enjoy them.
An easy-eating blue cheese with a pleasantly buttery texture and a balanced amount of blue veining which adds a lift to the rich, full-flavoured paste.
A smooth, soft washed-rind cheese with flavours that are milky and buttery. Its mouth-coating texture and gentle flavours make it an easy-eating cheese.
The flavours of Coolea are sweet and rich, with hints of caramel, butterscotch and honey. Smooth and close textured, it is reminiscent of Dutch Gouda.

About the Subscription Hub
The cheese we work with is strongly founded in a sense of community, from cheesemakers sharing recipes and tips, to the shared efforts of maturation between cheesemaker and affineur, to the departments within Neal's Yard Dairy tasting and talking about cheese together on a daily basis. The NYD subscription hub aims to bring this sense of community to our loyal subscription customers - a place to discover, discuss and delight in the cheeses you receive each month.Subscribe Now
