If a hundred people were asked to name two countries they most commonly associated with cheese, the majority would be likely to answer France and Italy. And although those two nations are perhaps the outright leaders when it comes to tradition and variety, we strongly believe that there is no shortage of fantastic fromages available closer to home.
Highland Fine Cheeses, provide us with a rich, delicious and decadent selection of cheeses.
At the Isle of Skye Baking Company, our selection showcases a variety of some of the best cheeses produced in Scotland, which also tie in nicely with our hand-cut range of traditional Scottish oatcakes and homemade chutneys. Perfect for a dinner party or a picnic. From Caboc, an indulgent and decadent double cream cheese rolled in pinhead oatmeal, made by Highland Fine Cheeses in the Highlands, to the delectable, mellow and aromatic Strathdon Blue, and the Black Crowdie, also rolled in pinhead oatmeal but coated with crushed black peppercorns to provide a nice sharp contrast in flavours.
