The perfect cheeseboard: La Fromagerie

We asked Patricia Michelson of La Fromagerie, one of London’s most respected cheese shops and one of our first customers, to select the perfect cheeseboard for us to share with you.

Peter’s Yard crispbread has an affinity with all styles of cheese, but definitely it is the farmhouse hand made styles that really come into their own. The crispbread does not go soggy so the cheese can be sliced and sat on top. This is the best way to serve cheese rather than spread it. Accompaniments should be simple since you don’t want to mask the flavours of the cheese or the crispbread. Ideally something crisp like celery or apples, pears and grapes. A Cheeseboard ideally should be 5 complementing yet contrasting cheeses.”

Here is a selection of 5 cheeses to serve with Peter’s Yard Crispbread for the perfect cheeseboard:

Truffe Noire

An unpasteurised goat’s cheese with an uncanny resemblance to a black truffle

Devon Blue

Made near Totnes, this blue is rich and slightly crumbly in texture

Stinking Bishop

One of the most identifiable British cheeses, Stinking Bishop takes its name from the perry it is washed in


A kind of cousin to Brie de Meaux, this is a soft cheese with a velvety bloom on the rind

Almnäs Tegel (at the front)

A brick-shaped aged cheese with nutty, caramelly flavours
