Christmas is traditionally a time for giving and sharing. It is no wonder therefore that the Christmas cheeseboard has become as much part of the gastronomic tradition as the Christmas cake or the turkey!
But what makes a perfect cheeseboard? It’s all about balance: balance of flavours textures, shapes and sizes. And here in west Wales, with the revival in cheese production over the last 25 years, we are spoilt for choice. So this year, give the stilton and brie and that usual block of cheddar the heave-ho and present your family and friends with a festive feast of cheeses to make you proud to be Welsh!
Calon Wen has put together an interesting combination to get your taste buds tingling.
Try something new this Christmas.
Did you know that eating equal quantities of cheese and Christmas cake is a long held tradition in the north of England? Why not give it a try this year with Calon Wen’s Crumbly Caerffili.
Remove from the fridge and let the cheese breathe. Arrange from mid to strong. Serve with chutney, crackers, fruit and a favourite tipple to keep the Christmas spirit going.
