Staying in on Valentine’s night? How did we guess?! You can still feel the love by serving up special Bakehouse-inspired meals to make it a day and night to remember.
Make an impact by presenting Valentine’s cheeses, many of which are our best-selling favourites shaped into hearts to help you show you care. Pair them with Haxby Bread, crackers, Yorkshire Crisps, olives and our other accompaniments to wow at the table or make a showstopping hamper.
Baron Bigod’s Bigod I Love You cheese is an award-winning creamy Brie-style cheese hand ladled at Fen Farm Dairy in Suffolk, using the raw milk of its happy Montbéliarde cows. Serve it sliced over warm, roasted vegetables or with figs, red onion marmalade and thick oatcakes.
The eye-catching red casing of Kick-Ass Cheese (pictured above) makes this creamy, strong, extra mature cheddar a perfect Valentine’s gift. It’s produced by Procter’s Cheeses, a family business in the Ribble Valley, Lancashire, and is great served with chilli jam and chilli crackers to really warm things up!
We love White Lake Heart of Gold cheese, a mild and distinctly creamy brie made from Guernsey cow’s milk in Somerset and crafted with care into a heart shape. Serve in a bacon sandwich or alongside our fantastic range of charcuterie from multi award-winning Lishman’s of Ilkley.
The Valentines Day special Burt’s Blue cheese is a semi-soft blue veined cheese hand-made in Cheshire using pasteurised milk. Its ‘mouldy coat,’ which can vary between greys and blues, is quite edible and makes a really striking cheeseboard centrepiece. Bake it in ham-wrapped figs – or it’s a perfect match with Haxby Bakehouse crusty bread for posh cheese on toast.
What ever your plans this Valentine’s Day, our top tip for success is to make it as cheesy as possible!
