Endlessly versatile – there are so many foods that go with cheese – Cheddar is one of the nation’s favourite ingredients for everything from sandwiches and simple suppers to party canapes and elaborate recipes. One of the most popular ways to enjoy it is as part of a cheese platter, which can be served as an after-dinner cheeseboard or as a meal in itself – they are easy to assemble and they’re perfect for sharing with friends and family.
Build your dream grazing board by seeking out the finest accompaniments for cheese. The best cheese accompaniments add layers of colour, texture and flavour – think crunch, spice and fruitiness. Bring your cheese plate alive with seasonal herbs, berries and crudités and consider adding creative flourishes, such as ribbons, sparkles and beautiful edible flowers, for special occasions.
Of course, one of the most popular accompaniments for cheddar is a simple chutney. We have a wide range of chutney for cheese, each traditionally made from our own bespoke recipes using natural ingredients. We’re also handpicked a selection of wines and beers that work wonderfully with our Cheddars and Red Leicesters and have carefully sourced an array of artisan products from guest producers that celebrate the flavours of our cheeses, including olives, crackers and hand-carved ham.
