Stichelton

Stichelton

A juicy acidity and toasty, biscuity notes toward the rind are the hallmarks of Stichelton, though the range of flavours this soft, creamy raw milk blue can exhibit is extraordinary: from crisp green apple right through to beef stock umami.

FAQs

Yes, the prices shown above are inclusive of a significant bulk discount for quarters, halves and whole cheeses.

As a general rule of thumb, we would recommend roughly between 100 and 150 grams per person for after dinner, and a bit more if cheese is the focus of the meal. If you are buying cheese to serve over a couple of days or as part of a buffet, it is advisable to buy a few larger pieces. This will both look better and keep better than many small bits. To help visualise weights, a good tip is to consider that a regular supermarket pat of butter weighs between 200 and 250 grams. If you are at all unsure please give us a call for some advice.

The best option is to keep your cheese wrapped in its paper within a box in the fridge. This will prevent the cheese from drying out and absorbing other flavours. Your cheese will arrive wrapped in waxed cheese paper, which achieves the best possible balance between maintaining humidity around the cheese and allowing it to breathe. We are happy to provide some free extra cheese paper, just search for "cheese paper" and add it to your basket. We don't recommend cling film or foil as it can cause the cheese to sweat which will negatively affect the flavour.

A Stichelton in time

After a lingering start our piece of Easter Stichelton bloomed like a host of Worsdworthizn daffodils. It was bought for lunch for a friend for whom Stichelton and godliness walk hand in hand. She bright two other Easter refugees and the cheese saved the day and the lunch.

Hi Christopher,
Thank you so much for your review and for taking the time to send us your wonderful feedback. We're delighted to hear the cheese brought joy to your Easter!
All the best,
NYD
