Hubby and I have always had one weakness when it comes to food and that is cheese and biscuits. It’s something we love having as another course for Christmas dinner, and something that we indulge in throughout the year in the evening when we’re watching a movie together or relaxing with friends.
M&S recently introduced us to their new range of cheese and we thought the best way of trying it properly would be as cheese and biscuits. One of my favourite things when having an evening of cheese and biscuits is to get a selection pack of cheese and the M&S Mini Cheese Selection is perfect to give a great variety of cheese with Cornish Cove Cheddar, Farmhouse Red Leicester and Blacksticks Blue.
The three cheese really compliment each other and if you have guests it is a great way of making sure you have a cheese for everyone. Also, at just £2.49 it’s a great value cheese selection too. These are all cheeses that you would be familiar with and know what to expect from them. I’m not that keen on blue cheese but the Blacksticks Blue was wonderfully creamy and not very blue – a perfect blue cheese for someone just starting to experiment with different cheeses.
We also tried the Cloth Wrapped Double Gloucester which is handmade by the Wensleydale Creamery in Yorkshire. It has a smooth and buttery texture with a mild nutty flavour. This is a cheese that we hadn’t tried before but really liked it. It had a different flavour to our typical cheddar but the texture was similar although more creamy and we really enjoyed it, especially with a caramelised onion relish!
If you’re looking for something for your cheese board then definitely take a look at the cheese selection in M&S. They have a great variety and something for everyone.
