And if you’re wondering where the British cheeses are – they come out too – but I like to serve the Stilton with Port in the early evening; and cheddar is also served on its own with a spicy chutney – usually in chunky sandwiches on Boxing Day! There are many new young cheesemakers in the UK now – and on my present list when I’m visiting friends and family will be a Rollright cheese, or a chunk of Selina Errington’s wonderful ewe’s milk Corra Linn – if you haven’t tried it please do as it is a Scottish cheese with hints of a Sardinian Pecorino and Pyrenees Ossau – absolutely delicious! Of course I’ll also have Vacherin du Haut Doubs ready to go into the oven to be baked for an impromptu fondue – and it also makes a wonderful gift too, especially when packaged up with a bottle of Savoie Chignin wine. And don’t forget our wine shelves are laden with some great bottles – chosen for their affinity with cheese. I do hope you’ll be able to visit us but if not then our gift selections and cheese boxes are all carefully curated to give you a taste of what La Fromagerie is all about. On Christmas Day it is now customary in the Michelson household to lift our glasses and say ‘cheers’ to everyone enjoying their festive cheeseboard – we may not know you all personally but if you’ve got our cheese on the table then you’re one of the family!
