With the pumpkins made into soup and the bonfire burnt out, our attention turns to winter, and of course, Christmas. A time for togetherness, friends, family, loved ones and the thoughtful giving of gifts. As we begin to jot our ideas of what to buy who, we thought we'd round up the gifts on our Christmas list this year. From cheese books to cheese boards, servers to experiences, we've hand-picked the freshest finds for your cheese-adoring loved ones this Christmas.

A Cheesemonger's History of the British Isles by Ned Palmer
Ned Palmer runs the Cheese Tasting Company, whose unique events pair cheese with wines, beers, whiskies and history. After studying philosophy, theatre and experimental psychology, he worked as a jazz pianist and hospital porter, before helping out on a stall at Borough Market led him into a life of cheesemongering.
This book follows the history of cheese from its neolithic beginnings right up to the modern day.
This Land by Quicke's
Our brand new journal entitled This Land, is a tribute to our ancient rural landscape and traditions, from the people to the pastures.
Taking a winding ramble through the seasons, the journal considers the ever-shifting charms and challenges brought about by spring, summer, autumn and winter, taking many a detour along the way to look at themes such as foraging, cheese pairing and science in the dairy.
Featuring pieces written by Mary Quicke MBE, reflecting on the land that her family has nurtured for 14 generations, This Land also contains contributions from a host of Quicke’s friends, including chefs Gill Meller and Ben Quinn, Slow Food UK’s Shane Holland, Dr Katharine Earnshaw from the University of Exeter and many more, as the journal tells a tale of tradition, terroir and taste.
