This Month's Cheeses

The Neal’s Yard Dairy Subscription showcases three different cheeses each month, connected in some way by a location, season, recipe or occasion. January can feel a little dull after recent festivities, so this month's selection is designed to bring some colour to your cheeseboard. From bold, mature Red Leicester to the peachy hues of Appleby's Cheshire, with Riseley's washed rind also offering some earthy red notes, these cheeses will brighten up Wintery dishes too - you can find some recipe ideas on the Neal's Yard Dairy Subscription Hub. 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.

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.
