Book clubs have never been about books. They’re really just a way to get out of the house once a month and eat lots of cheese (and not just cheese, sometimes crackers, too; those book club snack platters can get pretty fancy-pants). So really, most members of every book club are probably pretending they’ve finished the book, nodding their heads like they agree with everyone else, offering opinions using quotes lifted directly off the cover: “I thought it was a thought-provoking tour de force! A thrilling debut from an original new voice! Compelling, nuanced, poignant, you must get out and buy this book! …uhhhh … which you already have … but buy it again, it’s that good!“
Of course, you may be a member of one of those freaky clubs where members actually finish the books. I’ve heard about them: apparently they serve cheese and crackers and prosciutto rolled into little cigars; they’re very pretentious. You still don’t have to finish the book: when it’s your turn to say something, just offer a generic response that can apply to every book ever written – “I particularly liked how the main character started out as this kind of person … but at the end, they were that kind of person! Hey, can someone pass the triple-cream brie?” Then stuff your mouth with brie so if you’re asked to elaborate, you can point to your stuffed mouth and shrug helplessly.

What you get
The Triple Cream, Blue and Manchego are cut from larger wheels, so weight will vary a little, but they will average 250 gram each.
You will receive approx 1.0 kg of cheese in total.
All cheeses are selected from our aged and ripened stock
They are not pre-wedged supermarket cheeses. That’s not what we do.
Our packs are delivered refrigerated on the day of dispatch from the warehouse.
This eliminates the need for ice-packs and other non-environmentally friendly material.
We also provide detailed tasting notes, including suggested wine & food matching s also how to prepare and serve the cheese. We also provide details as to how to store and keep the cheese in perfect condition.
That is if you don’t eat it all straight away!
