Hard Cheese

With so many different styles of cheese to choose from, there’s a lot of fun to be had hunting for your favourite, and the specialist cheese collection from Fine Food Specialist is the perfect place to start looking.

Cheese comes in a variety of forms, from soft, spreadable young cheeses, to those which are hard and aged. As cheeses mature they tend to develop more complex flavours, with hints of nuts and brown butter.

Included in our range of hard cheeses is Beaufort, Cantal, Comte and Ossau Iraty. We also stock excellent Il Fiorino Pecorino, Tomme de Chevre and stunning Parmigiano Reggiano.

With interesting textures and complex flavours, these cheeses are guaranteed to linger in the memory. Our range is crammed full of superb hard cheeses from around the world, so don’t miss out on the chance to find your favourite among our range of specialist cheeses today.

Do take a look through our cheese accessories selection too, as well as our dedicated French cheese and Italian cheese ranges.
