The romantic origin of heart-shaped cheese is why we think our heart-to-heart gift boxes make the perfect Valentine’s Day cheese gifts!
What is the history behind heart-shaped cheese?
Heart-shaped cheese has been around for centuries (over 500 years in fact!) and originated in Normandy with the cheese Neufchatel. The art of moulding cheese into the iconic heart shape began during the Hundred Years War, when women in the small village of Neufchatel-en-Bray fell in love with their English occupants and gave them heart-shaped cheese as gifts.
This gift set pairs our award-winning classic 200g Heart-Shaped Vintage Organic Cheeddar with our 200g Heart-Shaped Black Truffle Vintage Organic Cheddar for maximum indulgence.
