For those of us who love cheese, then Christmas is surely our favourite time of year? It’s when we can almost guarantee the presence of a Christmas cheeseboard at parties and gatherings.  And, of course, it’s when we get to give or receive a very special Paxton & Whitfield cheese hamper!

As always, the planning of our Christmas cheese hamper range began many months ago.  It’s a delight to compile fabulous selections of artisan cheese and fine foods, finding the perfect pairings for you to enjoy.
