Mum's the Curd

Cheese has traditionally been hyped as a "Dad present", but we at Paxton & Whitfield know that there are plenty of Mums out there that would skip the flowers and perfume for something a bit different - and delicious. So, if you're stressed out about what to get, step away from the scarves and take inspiration from some beautiful cheese presents for Mother's Day

Instead of Flowers

We have some totally tasty floral treats on our shop counters that look almost too good to eat. How about the herby Fleur de Maquis; a sweet soft sheeps milk, coated in rosemary, juniper and just a hint of chilli - bringing the garden to the table. Or from nearer afield (sorry) try Flower Marie, a melting and delightfully delicate soft sheeps' milk. For the perfect package however indulge your Mum with a baked camembert set - paired with gooseberry cheese and Rosemary crackers, the taste of a British garden is given a meltingly good twist. 

Instead of Afternoon Tea

If your Mum has more of a savoury tooth, why not pop a few cheeses on one of our plate sets and serve with our very own champagne. We're firm believers that champagne is the best all round tipple to go with cheese, so we designed our own light and tantalising on the tongue Paxton & Whitfield Champagne to sparkle up any cheese occasion. 

Instead of a Card

Save paper and say it with love to your Mum (and mother nature) edibly. Our Couer de Pic and Couer de Neufchatel are the perfect heart shaped cheeses to do just that. For more celestial love you to the moon and back vibes, the star shaped Etoile de Gatine will brighten up your Mum's day too. 

And for the New Mums 

Congratulations! You made it through nine months of raw milk, soft cheese and blue cheese restrictions. Celebrate your return to the cheese world with the hearty selection of sumptuous cheeses in our New Mum Cheese Collection
