Inside the box Mum will receive :
This soft bloomy rind triple cream is sourced from the Ile de France in North-Central France. The milk in enriched with ripened cream and then made using traditional methods. The fine white rind encases a delicate savoury but very creamy interior.
Kym Masters went to the Haut Jura region of France to study a style of cheese made by farmers using the leftover curds. Placed in a barrel overnight they would sprinkle ash from burnt vine leaves on the fresh curd in order to prevent a rind from forming overnight (and to keep insects away). They would then top it up with more curd the next day. This gave the cheese its distinctive ash line but would also result in a slightly different colour and texture between the top and the bottom. Kym returned to set up Section28, where he is hand-making uniquely Australian cheese using the same technique. This cheese acknowledges this history whilst capturing the terroir of the Adelaide Hills via the local milk. This cheese has a yeasty aroma and a vibrant flavour with a hint of citrus.
This particular cheese has a thin wrinkled white rind when young with a blue/grey mould forming over parts of the rind and later a reddish growth may develop. The interior is firm and snow white and will become drier with age. It has a sweet, delicate flavour when young and will develop hazelnut characters as it ripens and eventually the stronger tangy goat flavour will dominate.
Gluten Free Activated Charcoal Crispbread is all natural gluten free wafer thin crispbread, made with Activated Coconut Charcoal.
Just to prove that you are the favourite - you can also add :
Brimoncourt Champagne Brut Régence
Dominated by Chardonnay, Brut Régence has a great aromatic finesse and embodies Brimoncourt’s spirit and signature. It is a gallant wine all the more seducing with its freshness, round texture and delicately fruity finish.
The dominant Chardonnay feature creates a delicate, subtle and very elegant bouquet. It reveals white flowers aroma and charming fruity notes thanks to the Pinot Noir. Its affirmed minerality gives it distinction and nobility. The well-rounded mouth is enjoyable; a dash of freshness invigorates the palate and brings out a beautiful, ample and complex structure with a good length in mouth.
Pot and Still Adelaide Hills Fig Gin
25 years chemical free, Estate grown Figs poached gently to extract the sweet fig aroma, essence, and earthiness. The gin botanicals and spirit show early on the nose with all the fig showing on the palate. Pour over ice and enjoy or add some lime for a flavor explosion, a perfect balance of sweetness and acidity which stretches the profile, then add a little good tonic to create the perfect G&T.
