What’s in the box?

Garlic wheatcheese 200g approx

  • Infused with our own aged garlic, this cheese is fantastic on crackers or crusty baguette. Or crumble it over a tomato salad with a good olive oil and shredded basil.

Chilli wheatcheese 200g approx

  • Our number one cheese for the vegan cheeseboard has a lovely colour with flecks of fresh chilli. Flavoured with super umami fermented red chillies and chilli flakes for smoothe, spicy warmth, this is a firm sliceable wheatcheese that goes with anything – crackers, toast, pizza, pasta. Blend it with a little rapeseed oil and plant milk for a tasty, natural nacho sauce.

Original wheatcheese 200g approx

  • Our award-winning original wheatcheese is firm in texture with a creamy taste. Perfect for a cheese and tomato sandwich with spring onion and a good spot of spicy chutney. Grates beautifully straight from the fridge.

Wheatcheese in olive oil with chilli and oregano 200g approx

  • Cubes of our award-winning original wheatcheese, marinated in olive oil with chilli and oregano. Perfect scattered with pine nuts on tomato and onion salad with warm crusty bread or even a baked potato. Really delicious.

Wheatcheese “melt” 175g approx (2 jars)

  • Fermented potato and wheat are the secret to this natural alternative to “melting” dairy cheese. Creamy but with a natural sharpness like a mild cheddar, this is the perfect wheatcheese for melting on toast. Combine with the red chorizo paste for a perfect dairy free pizza. No additives or preservatives.

Red Chorizo paste 175g approx

  • Fava, fermented then shredded red cabbage and flax are blended with paprika and a super umami trio of fermented red chillis, smoked chipotle and the milder,Mexican ancho chilli for a warm, tasty paste that is so moorish and versatile. Add to pasta, pizza or vegetables for a chorizo flavour twist on pesto or just eat straight from the jar.

Green chorizo paste 175g approx

  • Another fava, flax blend, this time inspired by Mexican green chorizo, this paste is similar in texture to the red chorizo but with the fresh chimmichurri flavours of green chillis, oregano and fresh parsley & coriander taking centre stage. A firm favourite on the charcuterie board.

Crackers 200g approx

  • On our suppliers list we have Ines Rosales Peter’s Yard, Cradoc’s, and more. In every Christmas gift box, depending on supplier stock levels, you will find crackers with flavours from Rosemary and Thyme tortas de aceite, to water biscuits and charcol to sea salt flatbreads. All are tested by us to complement our cheeses and patés perfectly.
