Cheese hamper by olive magazine
Christmas is the best time of year for cheese, so we’ve curated our own indulgent cheese hamper. This showcases the best of British artisan cheesemaking with three brilliant cheeses: iconic Colston Bassett stilton, a complex cheddar perfected by Westcombe Dairy in Somerset and creamy Sussex Camembert from award-winning, self-taught cheesemonger Alsop & Walker. Crackers, fruity apricot toasts and piccalilli finish the hamper to be cheeseboard ready.
