Cheese as an alternative to cake?
Not everybody likes cake and many of us are trying to cut down on sweet things. It’s great to have an alternative to the usual cake at an event or wedding and we think cheese is perfect for this.
You can choose your own favourites, or ask Jo, our deli manager and cheesemonger (originally trained at Neal’s Yard Dairy in London) to select some to suit your guests. Then she or a member of the knowledgeable deli team can help you with choosing a range of biscuits or crackers, chutneys, fruits or savoury jams to go with it. Visually, a beautiful cheeseboard can easily compete with the finest of cakes!
For an extra special occasion and for additional impact, why not choose a cheese tower. This consists of several whole cheese wheels arranged on top of each other, plain and simple with a range of accompaniments, or decorated with seasonal foliage or flowers. They always look stunning and highly original.
