Le Gruyère AOP - July Cheese of the Month

A much-loved continental cheese, Le Gruyère AOP has been made for centuries with unpasteurised cow’s milk in the western cantons of the Swiss Alps.

A relatively young cheese, aged for six to nine months, its flavour is mildly toasty and sometimes nutty. It has a firm smooth texture and melts quickly on the tongue.  Famed for its leading role in fondu, Le Gruyère is a brilliant cheese in the kitchen as well as on the cheeseboard.

St Jude - June Cheese of the Month

St Jude is a lactic cows’ milk cheese made from unpasteurised milk.  It is produced by award-winning cheesemaker, Julie Cheyney, just outside Bungay on the Suffolk and Norfolk border. It has a delicate rind with complex milky flavours of butter and fresh grass and a dense and creamy texture.

It is a true artisan cheese, handmade, with flavours varying through the seasons due to changes in the milk.

Julie Cheyney will be at Lawson's on Monday 29 May happy to chat to you about St Jude and share her enthusiasm for cheesemaking.

Appleby's Cheshire - May Cheese of the Month

Appleby’s Cheshire is one of the best territorial farmhouse cheeses to be made in this country. It is tasting particularly good this month.

Appleby’s has a balance of rich mineral flavours and acidity with clean, mellow notes. It is open-textured, crumbly but not overly dry. As it matures the flavour becomes more savoury and herbal with a long mouth-watering finish. Our Appleby's Cheshire comes to us from Neal's Yard Dairy and is about four months old by the time it reaches us.

Read on to find out more about what is so special about it.
