Our Cheese Platter Hamper contains a selection of our favourite Italian mountain cheeses along with a set of four tasty sauces to pair with them:
Organic Pecorino Sardo DOP 200g
Our organic Pecorino is a semi-matured, excellent quality artisanal cheese made in the little town of Dolianove in the Province of Cagliari. Pecorino is one of Italy's oldest cheeses and features heavily in Italian cuisine! Pecorino Sardo is made with raw sheep's milk (giving it an authentic rural taste) and aged in ancient vaults.
Parmigiano Reggiano DOP Aged 36 months 200g
Artisanally produced at 1000m in the Appenine Mountains, this wonderful, aged Parmesan is made from raw cow's milk as all DOP Parmesan should be.
Asiago Stravecchio DOP 200g
This is an extra mature Asiago mountain cheese from the Veneto region. Asiago Stravecchio DOP is the most matured version of this type of cheese.
Organic Taleggio DOP 200g)
This is a sweet, slightly sour soft cow's milk cheese. It has a characteristic aroma sometimes with a hint of truffle.
Gorgonzola Piccante DOP Gran Riserva 200g
Sharper and firmer than the 'dolce' version of Gorgonzola, this cheese is straw coloured with more blue veins. Creamier than Stilton, but just as strong, the Gorgonzola Piccante is aromatic and intense and has been matured for 120 days.
Set of 4 Cheese Accompaniments (40g each)
These 4 delicious mini jams go perfectly with our artisanal cheeses. It includes: Fig jam (pair with Parmesan and Pecorino), Tropea onion jam (great with Taleggio, Gorgonzola or Cheddar), chilli pepper jam (try with Pecorino) and chilli and pear jam (good with Asiago, Pecorino and Parmesan).
This delicious selection of cheeses and accompaniments is presented in our bamboo tray (the cheeses are packed in a chilled box first) which is wrapped in cellophane and tied with a colourful ribbon.
