Bringing the West Country’s finest together for a Christmas sharing board to remember, Devon-based cheesemaker, Quicke’s has announced the launch of its first ever Festive Feasting Box. Curated with effortless indulgence in mind, this selection box comes packed full of cheese, charcuterie, chutney, olives, crackers, nuts and fruit cake, lifting the festive cheeseboard to heady new heights.
Featuring a trio of multi award-winning cheeses made at Home Farm in Devon, the box includes Mature Clothbound Cheddar, showcasing the best of the pastures, Goat’s Milk Clothbound Cheese, made with locally-sourced goat’s milk, and Oak Smoked Clothbound Cheddar, smoked using oak chips from trees grown on the estate. Paired with Clare’s Preserves Spiced Damson Chutney, made with damsons from the foothills of Dartmoor, and Peter’s Yard Rye & Charcoal Sourdough Crackers, these are anything but ordinary nibbles.
Joining this all-star spread, Capreolus Fine Foods from Dorset supplies its Charcuterie Sharing Platter, while the Cornish Olive Stall brings its olive mix to the table, alongside Rosemary Sea Salt Peanuts from Mr Filbert’s in Somerset. Topped off with a Fruit Cake from Mrs Gill’s Country Cakes, handcrafted just 16 miles away from Home Farm using a 200 year old recipe that pairs beautifully with Quicke’s Mature Cheddar, this box is a festive feast through and through, perfect for a Christmas Eve get together, Christmas Day cheeseboard or simple Boxing Day lunch.
