a better way to buy cheese

It all begins with our personal relationships with the cheesemakers. Working very closely together allows us to source and select the best quality.

As soon as the cheese is in our care, we continue the ageing process in our own maturing rooms, by skilfully controlling temperature and humidity to develop and enhance the unique and complex array of flavours, textures and aromas.

As you would expect, this meticulous approach ensures that our cheeses reach you aged to perfection and in peak condition.

WE CHAMPION LOCAL AND BRITISH

Many of our products are locally sourced from small independent producers in the Cambridge Region.

By supporting local suppliers, we are able to ensure food miles are minimised and local producers and their employees can benefit from our mutual relationship.

Whenever we can we buy British, helping to promote the quality of British food and offering valued support to British producers and farmers.

CHEESE+ ARE PROUD TO BE PATRON OF THE ACADEMY OF CHEESE

Cheese Plus is a founding patron of this not for profit organisation that is establishing a cheese qualification on four levels.

The Academy has been set-up to promote cheese knowledge and provide career development, both within the industry and amongst the wider public.

It culminates in the highly qualified and industry accredited role of Master of Cheese. The programme will build knowledge and skills from cheesemaking through affinage to selling to consumers – in both retail and food service environments.

Our objective is to promote cheese quality, provenance and range to a wide audience of enthusiasts, cheesemongers, producers and chefs; both in the UK and overseas. By acknowledging those who have undertaken the courses – from Level One through to Level Four’s Master of Cheese

– we aim to ensure greater respect and recognition for the valuable contribution that cheese makes to our lives – culturally, socially and economically.

In 2018 Cheese Plus aim to become a training centre partner for The Academy of Cheese.


OUR VERY OWN

The Duke cheese and The Duchess cheese are handmade using the fresh morning milk from Holstein, Friesian and Red Poll Cows. During the summer, the cows graze freely on clover rich pastures and in the winter dine-in on red clover haylage.

This home produced forage, together with the highest standards of cow welfare, produces top quality, award winning milk which is rich in butterfat and when used unpasteurised optimises the unique flavours of the cheeses.

SO HOW DO THEY TASTE?

The Duke cheese is an exquisite cultured blue with complex flavours which develops a soft blue natural rind and a golden interior with dashes of royal blue. The Duke is creamy, sweet and salty, with a delicious peppery finish.

The Duchess cheese is a firm and supple alpine style cheese, bathed in English Sparkling Rosé from Cambridge to create a cheese full of buttery flavours, with an elegant curtsy of sweet notes.
