Gosh its been a while since we did a cheese post, but here is a very special one, specially dressed for Christmas this cute Baby Blackstick Blue Truckle has arrived to join our celebrations.
Blacksticks Blue is created lovingly by Butlers Cheeses at Inglewhite Dairy in rural Lancashire, this cheese make the perfect centrepiece for your cheese board. It's an amazing colour and a creamy, buttery mild blue cheese, and at this time of year you can also find it with a special complimentary fruity tangy topping that perfectly marries with the cheese.
A favourite of chefs and cheesemongers alike this cheese is perfect in recipes, cooking and simply served as it is. A truckle is approx 400g of cheese
Available direct from Butlers or any quality cheesemonger
Using only the finest Outdoor bred British pork, Woodall's have for 8 generations been producing delicious British Charcuterie and pork products.
Utilising innovative curing, smoking and preserving methods they produce a wonderful range of charcuterie including air dried hams and salamis. All perfect to serve at any celebration or get together.
We taste tested
Royale Air Dried Ham , a great taste award winner. Pickled in pale ale, molasses, vinegar and brown sugar before being smoked, then air dried ham is tasty with a rich sweet salty flour and a delicious melt in the mouth texture. Perfect for platter serving but also in recipes as a prosciutto substitute.
Black pepper and garlic salami, a meaty aromatic flavoursome salami with just enough pepper heat but also with pepper fragrance finely balanced with a warm earthy garlic note.
Spicy Cumberland Salami - a wonderfully British chorizo equivalent, less fatty and with a warm delicate paprika heat.
Norfolk Mustard Salami - a little cheeky blend of classic Norfolk mustard powder and seeds, that give this salami a warm well rounded flavour. A British classic twist.
Woodall's Charcuterie is available from Booths Supermarkets, Harrods and Selfridges and various farm shops and quality outlets nationwide.
