Annelise Wedding Cheese Cake, 4.4kg small cheese tower.
Feeding 40 to 80, the Annelise party cheese is a great stack for a small gathering, coming in at 4.4kg, it would feed up to 40 for an evening do or up to 80 for after dinner cheese if your just wanted a small nibble or had other food too.
The cheeses from the bottom to the top:
Yorkshire Blue: A lovely mid strength blue. Makers Shepherds Purse advertise it as being mild but I think it has a bit more flavour than that really. Gorgeously creamy, with a lovely balance of flavour, I think this cheese suits a variety of tastes. This blue is made in Thirsk using Yorkshire cows milk which is pasteurised and uses vegetarian rennet. It is a handmade in a continental style which gives it a buttery-sweet flavour without a sharp bite. Softer blue cheeses are often made in foil to keep in the moisture and to stop a hard rind forming and the cheese drying out so it can be presented in a silver foil if that suits your colour scheme more. 18cm x 5.5cm 1.5kg
Inglewhite Black Wax Cheddar: A lovely tasty creamy cheddar from a farm up near Preston. Great for a gathering and a nice size for a small stack. 14.5cm x 7cm 1.25kg
Cornish Yarg: A lovely gentle hard cheese. Mild yet full of flavour, it's a great looker, covered by nettles. It gives this stack great height. Cow's milk, pasteurised, vegetarian. 13cm x 9cm. 1kg.
Finn: A mature, double cream cheese made up the road at Neal's Yard Creamery, Dorstone. It has a firm texture with a fresh creamy acidity. Weighing about 200g, they are 9cm wide by 4cm. Unpasteurised, cow's
milk,vegetarian 9cm x 4cm. 200g.
Neuf Chatel: This lovely heart cheese is believed to date back to the 6th Century, so a few Centuries younger than St Valentine himself. Its a soft, slightly crumbly mould ripened soft cheese originating from the village of Neufchâtel-en-Bray in northern Normandy and is made with pasteurised cows milk and animal rennet. 200g
For a wedding stack we recommend 50 - 100g per person, depending if the cheese is to be eaten straight after the meal or later in the evening and with other food or by itself. We can very happily advise over email so drop us a line on firstname.lastname@example.org for ideas for a bespoke cheese board for your wedding or event. We ask for at least a weeks notice for a wedding stack, if you want to guarantee your selection, give us three weeks, that way we can make sure your soft cheeses are ripened to perfection (but the longer the better as far as we're concerned!!). We only send the cheese, any decorations will need to be sourced elsewhere. Delivery costs £8.65 and is added at the check out, or you can select to pick it up in one of our shops.
