Description

What’s better than to sit back with a nice glass of wine and nibble on some fine cheese? Not much, right? The only problem often is that it’s hard to find and pick the right cheese. That’s where Alpine Express by The Red Cow comes in.

This amazing cheese board – we call it ‘Raw Milk & Friends – was hand selected by Tom and contains three superb cheeses, enough for 3 to 4 people:

  • Sélection Rolf Beeler Toggenburger made from unpasteurised Swiss alpine milk, ca. 200g
    (or equivalent, subject to availability)
  • Affidélice, with Chablis washed rind, soft cow’s milk cheese from France, 1 piece ca. 200g
  • Australian produced Goat’s camembert, pasteurised, 1 piece ca. 105g

Plus optional extras include our Rolf Beeler fruit mustard (Pear), Birehong Pear Reduction or waterwheel crackers to complete your cheese platter.

Beverage matching ideas

This cheese board contains a number different cheeses, therefore it matches to many beverages equally well. If we had to pick something, we’d suggest a crisp Chardonnay (or French Chablis) or a slightly fruity beer (e.g. Kolsch) or cider (e.g. Napoleon Pear Cider).

How we wrap your cheese

Freshness of your cheese is important to us. That’s why – unless noted differently in the description – we package all of our cheese in vacuum bags to help minimize travel impacts. However, we understand that some of you prefer cheese being wrapped in cheese wrap. This option is available to you for a small fee (it takes more time to package the cheese this way, that’s why we charge you a little bit more). Unless specifically noted in the description, all cheese will generally have a best before date of at least 14 days, vacuum packed cheese generally about 2 months. Please note that with cheese this is often only a guidance date and does not necessarily mean the cheese will be of lesser quality beyond that date. In fact many soft(er) cheeses are best kept close to or until after that date for maximum ripeness.

How the cheese gets to you

All Alpine Express cheese are shipped in environmentally friendlier, insulated cardboard boxes. The cheese is bolstered with wood wool and/or recycled packing paper & kept cold with an ice gel pack. It is shipped via Australia Post’s ‘next day guaranteed’ Express Post service. To guarantee the freshness of the cheese we can only service customers within this service network. Please check if your delivery postcode is part of it. Customers residing in the Metro Brisbane area can also arrange a free pick-up from our warehouse in Bulimba.

All Cheese Boxes are sent on Wednesdays with an order cut-off time at 12pm AET that day (except for some cheese boxes where the cut off time is midnight the Sunday before). All customers will get a tracking number to follow their parcel’s progress.

    The Toggenburger is our trusted favourite, which drew my attention to this platter. The Affidelice is a special treat and we were amazed how much we had missed it. The Goat’s camembert was the big surprise in this fantastic selection. Tom – great value for money – happiness all-round!!!
    Overnight delivery was great too, worth the money. The cheeses arrived safe and fresh. Excellent service once again. This Red Cow keeps on giving 🙂
