Your parcel will be delivered by courier to your home or office on the Wednesday closest to the 15th of the month. Each box of will be insulated with cold packs to ensure that the cheese arrives ready-to-eat.
And it does not stop there! To further your enjoyment of the cheese assortment, you’ll receive The Curd on the Street – a mini magazine with Vanessa as your ‘guide’ giving you the inside scoop about the neat people who make the cheese, tips & tasting notes for the cheese selection as well as recipes oozing with cheese.
