Cheese of the Week

Camembert au Lait Cru – 15% off!
A versatile cheese for New Year, our superlative Camembert de Normandie au Lait Cru can be enjoyed at room temperature or, even better, warmed in the oven until it's runny and delicious, to be scooped from the box with chunks of sourdough bread!
Camembert is actually a relative newcomer to the long history of French cheese – first made in the 1790s in Normandy, it's basically a Brie recipe that's been tweaked to produce an earthier taste and texture.
After being packed into moulds and drained, the cheeses are
sprayed with the bacteria penicillium camemberti and left for three weeks to soften and grow a bloomy white coat. Once ready, they are wrapped in wax paper and placed in a special wooden box made of poplar, which was invented in 1890 so that the cheeses could be transported more easily. Camembert de Normandie received its controlled designation of origin in 1983, meaning it can only be made from unpasteurised milk, in Normandy, from Normandes cows. Ours comes from cheesemaker Marc Brunet, who works with local herds in Normandy to hand produce this elegantly subtle, smooth and creamy Camembert with complex flavours ranging from vegetal, buttered spring greens to notes of earthy mushrooms. Try pairing it with a crisp Chardonnay or Champagne. Absolutely delicious – and even better, there's 15% off this week!

Treats of the Week  Tablet and Shortbread

It's not a proper Bells if you don't bring out the traditional Scottish delicacies for everyone to enjoy! Though we're not stocking black bun and ginger wine yet, we do have the best traditional tablet and shortbread you can get!
Hand-made on the Isle of Arran, Tartan Tablet is just like your granny used to make – creamy and more-ish and utterly delicious!

To go along with it, what about some of Chrystal's brilliant shortbread?

Everyone loves shortbread and this is hand-made to a family recipe by Chrystal and Rory Mackinley at their bakery near Loch Lomond. Crumbly, buttery and delightfully indulgent!
Available now at George Mewes Cheese in Byres Road, Glasgow, and Stockbridge, Edinburgh!
