"Bastille Day Pack"
July Globe Trotter Club
Join now to enjoy our July pack of delicious cheese
Ooh la la - break the baguettes and pop a cork, our Cheesemonger has made French cheese the theme of the month to celebrate France’s national day - Bastille Day! Apparently, the cheesemaking process was only discovered by chance. Think back to a more ancient time, when milk had to be carried from one place to another in goatskins. Milk would have curdled due to the natural presence of rennet, the enzyme used to transform milk. And voila, cheese was accidentally born!
This wonderful discovery led to the craft of cheesemaking being developed in France. During the middle ages in France, cheese making was mostly the domain of French monasteries. France was looked to by much of Europe as setting the pace for style, fashion, social behaviour and food, so when cheese was served by royalty as a delicacy, demand for cheese quickly grew. To this day, cheesemakers honour those early traditions and still regard French methods as a benchmark.
July 2020 Cheeses* are:
HARD - CAPITOUL CAPRINELLE CHEVRE (FRA)
SOFT - ROUZAIRE TRUFFLE BRIE (FRA)
STINKY - CHABERT CHABLOCHON (FRA)
BLUE - LE ROI ROQUEFORT (FRA)
PLUS - there's more!
Each pack includes one of each cheese, accompanying tasting notes and suggested wine and food pairings. If a promoted cheese is unavailable for some reason, we will replace it with another great cheese.
About Cheese Club
For over four years, our Cheese Club has delivered to cheese lovers across Australia every month. You can sit, relax and enjoy a moment together (even virtually now) and explore new tastes, traditions, styles and stories. A cheese tasting is the time to reconnect and take a break to savour the moment. Our Cheese Club subscription is the perfect gift to treat yourself or someone you love!
Each month we select and send an incredible range of special international and Australian cheeses to our members - often you cannot find these cheeses in shops. Our cheese packs showcase handcrafted, creative cheeses that celebrate the very best skills in this centuries-old industry. We have often trudged miles to find cheese in a remote or rural place, for you and for the love of cheese!
The Nitty Gritty
Each cheese weighs approx. 120-200g. Sometimes we find a brilliant cheese that weighs less due to the way it is made that we just want to showcase to you.
Your subscription is a minimum of 3 deliveries. Each will cost $80 + $15 shipping at the beginning of each month, until you opt out. You can skip months or change addresses at any time - just let us know. Our Cheese Club Concierge can assist you with any enquiries you have via firstname.lastname@example.org
Cheese Club boxes are packed and shipped during the second week of the month. The July 2020 Cheese Club packs will start leaving us from 13 July. If you would like us to delay your pack, please let us know.
We strive to pack and ship your cheese before the weekend to avoid it possibly being held up in a depot somewhere. Not cool.
Our Cheese Angels also hand deliver in Melbourne, Geelong, Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast! Our Angels work 7 days, so cheese may arrive any time. You will be notified on the day of your delivery and if not home, your Cheese Angel will leave your box safely wrapped in ice and recyclable insulation at your door as the perfect welcome home!
Thank you for joining Cheese Club - we love your feedback and photos too - enjoy your cheese!
