  • Cornish Yarg
  • Saint Agur
  • Pi D’Angloy
  • Crackers or crisp flatbreads, to serve
  • Ripe fragrant fruits, such as figs and pears, to serve
  • Freshly shelled nuts, such as walnuts, to serve


  1. We’ve chosen a semi-hard Cornish Yarg, with its characteristic green nettle leaf rind, moist, crumbly yet creamy texture and gentle tang; a creamy French blue, Saint Agur, which is strong yet soft and melts in the mouth; and finally Pi D’Angloy, a full-bodied, rich, soft cheese from Burgundy, with a fruity flavour and a soft edible rind.
  2. Serve at room temperature with crackers or crisp flatbreads; ripe fragrant fruits, such as figs and pears; and some freshly shelled nuts, such as walnuts.

  1. The trick to putting together a good cheeseboard is to choose just three cheeses, but make sure they show a variety in texture and flavour.
