Whether it’s for Christmas party nibbles or a Boxing Day spread, the cheeseboard is a pillar of the festive season. This Christmas, Asda has launched a new range of 13 speciality cheeses, including fruity fusions and flavour combinations sure to thrill any turophile.
Looking to impress? Asda’s Queso de Oveja con Aio Negro (Sheep’s Cheese with Black Garlic - £4) will wow any dinner guest with its distinctive veined appearance. A product of the La Mancha region where sheep have grazed for centuries, the Spanish cheese is blended with black garlic from a dairy in Albacete, then sealed and aged. The sweet and nutty cheese pairs perfectly with the balanced, tangy black garlic, which also gives the cheese its stunning marbled appearance.
For a show-stopping centrepiece, look no further than the Extra Special Belton Farm Double Gloucester Cheese Pâté with Sweet Chilli Jam (£5). This rich and creamy Double Gloucester cheese terrine is topped with a sweet and spicy sweet-chilli jam layer and set in a striking star shape – truly the star of the show.
A twist on a classic, Asda’s Extra Special Aged Red Leicester with Geeta’s Mango Chutney makes a sweet and aromatic addition to a cheeseboard, whilst the Extra Special Wensleydale with Fruit Infused with Cognac (£2) adds a cheeky kick thanks to the cranberries and raisins soaked in cognac that have been carefully blended with award-winning Wensleydale.
For those who enjoy fruitier flavours, why not try Asda’s Extra Special Tuxford and Tebbut Potted Blue Stilton with Spiced Apple & Port Compote (£4.50)? Produced in one of Britain’s oldest creameries, hand-crafted Blue Stilton® is perfectly paired with a fruity compôte of Golden Delicious apples from Spain and Calem Velhotes Tawny Port, sure to get tastebuds tingling.
Shoppers can also find Christmas classics such as a creamy Brie de Meaux (£3) and a rich and luxurious Smoked Cheddar with Wax Truckle (£1) as part of the range, meaning from the traditional to adventurous palates, Asda has it covered.
The new range is available to buy online and in-store from 17th November.
