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. July is all about picnics, seasonal cheese and fresh flavours. St James is only available throughout the warmer months and is a cheesemonger favourite, tangy and yoghurty and fresh. A top tip passed down from one of our export team is to save any excess rind from your Stilton and gently fry it in leftover bacon or beef fat - a truly indulgent treat to top off a barbecue. Do visit our subscription hub for recipe ideas and further information. 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.

A blue for those who ‘don’t like blues’, the Stilton we buy from Colston Bassett is made exclusively for Neal’s Yard Dairy. Gentler, sweeter and more balanced than a ‘typical’ blue cheese, it boasts a creamy, buttery paste pierced with the delicate blue veining characteristic of a Stilton.

Duckett's Caerphilly

A thin, earthy rind with notes of fresh grass and raw mushroom gives way to a creamy then crumbly curd, with a clean, fresh flavour and a pleasantly mineral tang.

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.
