We will select the cheeses for your tray based on what tastes best at the time and makes for an elegant presentation. We’ll happily honor any requests, so please let us know if there’s anything you want us to include or avoid.
Only if you request them to be. We usually feature a variety of styles, milk types and origins.
We flag each cheese with its name and include signs describing each one.
Our cheese trays include fresh fruit, dry roasted hazelnuts, and dried fig cake with almonds.
