Hampshire Cheese Company | Tunworth: A Very British Masterpiece

Described as the “Best Camembert in the World” by Raymond Blanc, Tunworth was created by Stacey Hedges after asking cheesemongers what cheese the UK needed. Roll the clock forward nearly 20 years and the founder of Hampshire Cheese Company is still making this award-winning cheese.

Join Stacey for this guided tasting, as she shares the story of her journey into cheese and the creation of two of Britain’s favourite cheeses. She chats with Andy Swinscoe from The Courtyard Dairy as they discuss the pairing of red wine, as recommended by award-winning chef, Tommy Banks.

Taste Along with the Stacey

Curated especially by The Courtyard Dairy for Stacey’s talk, this box celebrates Hampshire Cheese’s famous cheeses:

  • Tunworth is an English Camembert good enough to make a Frenchman weep: vegetal, porcini-flavoured and intense.
  • Winslade is a modern creation – a cross between Vacherin and Camembert, encircled by a spruce strip. Soft, gooey, with floral, piney notes.

Have these cheeses, along with matched accompaniments: Damson paste and Peters Yard crispbreads delivered to enjoy, as Stacey tells you the story of her journey into cheese and the creation of Tunworth and Winslade.

The ‘Cheese & wine’ option also includes a matched 250ml measure of wine chosen by Tommy and James Banks (owners of the Michelin starred Black Swan at Oldstead) as the perfect match to Tunworth: Syrah Mourvédre red.
