The cheeses are: St Maure PDO* (x 6) - a full flavoured goats' cheese, which holds a rye straw bearing the name of its producer; Coulommiers (x 4) - dating back as far as Brie de Meaux, this is a very traditional French cheese. Soft and white, it has a pronounced earthy smell; Shropshire Blue (3.5kg) - a smooth textured blue cheese with a rich, rounded flavour and distinctive blue veining through the russet interior; Cornish Yarg (2.5kg) - deliciously fresh in flavour, creamy under the rind and crumbly at the core, this Cornish cheese is wrapped in nettles; and Montgomerys Cheddar PDO* (7kg) - a mature cheddar that has a long and complex flavour.
