Limited Edition Paxton's Hand-Truffled Baron Bigod - Just 70 Pieces Available

Paxton & Whitfield's handmade Truffle Brie de Meaux is truly legendary and it is consistently our best-selling cheese in our shops. When we launched a limited edition version online in November, it sold out within 3 days. So... to bring a little decadence to January and to continue support for our British cheesemakers through the pandemic, we're hand-truffling a batch of the multi award-winning, British, Brie-de-Meaux-style, Baron Bigod cheese for home delivery.

Our expert cheesemonger and Quality Manager Jazz Reeves will be making this limited edition batch of Paxton's Truffled Baron Bigod on Friday 22nd January. The flavours will be left to infuse in our specially designed maturing rooms over the weekend and then it will be hand packaged, wrapped and boxed for Monday overnight, chilled delivery to arrive with you on Tuesday January 26th. 

Limited Edition Hand-truffled Batch

Our Truffle Baron Bigod is made with raw milk British Baron Bigod;  with its golden curd and long lasting, earthy flavours. The Baron Bigod is sliced through the middle with a cheese wire; it’s a tricky process and has to be handled delicately because the cheese is so soft. The centre of the Baron Bigod is then spread with a luxurious combination of minced black truffles and Brillat Savarin, sandwiched back together and left to infuse. We use a young Brillat Savarin, where the cheese has yet to grow a rind - think the most heavenly and indulgent cream cheese in the world. We've experimented with cream cheese, marscapone and other fresh cheeses and we think the richness of the Brillat is the perfect partnership for the truffles. 

The finished Baron Bigod with Truffles is rich and indulgent, with a heady truffle aroma and deeply satisfying umaminess. The Brillat Savarin brings a little sweetness, thus creating a delicious and balanced treat of a cheese. Best served on its own, as a real centrepiece of a cheese and enjoyed with a glass of champagne.

Due to the freshly handmade nature of this very special cheese, the Truffle Baron Bigod will need to be eaten within 7 days of delivery to you. 

A strictly limited edition of 70 pieces of Truffle Baron Bigod (250g). Pre-order yours today for delivery to you on Tuesday 26th January.
