Description

The Swiss have long been known for their excellent skills in making semi-hard cheese. This Alpine Express cheese box is an entry level showcase of 3 of the most recognised Swiss cheeses. All three cheeses are protected origin cheeses and therefore the real deal. In this selection you’ll get

  • Swiss Emmental AOP Classic, 6-months matured, raw milk, ca. 200g
  • Swiss Gruyère AOP Classic, 6-months matured, raw milk, ca. 200g
  • Swiss Appenzeller Classic, 3-months matured, ca. 200g
  • Baby Cornichons, in vinegar, 110g

Plus why not add some crispbread or Swiss pear reduction ‘Birehong’ to your box?

Beverage matching ideas

Being a Swiss Classics cheese board, we recommend to drink something the Swiss would drink with these cheeses. Try an earthy, yet crisp Chardonnay or a lighter red wine such as a Pinot Noir. Lager beer also works very well with this cheese board.

 

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 recycled packing paper & kept cold with an food grade ice gel pack. It is shipped via Australia Post’s Express Post service. Please check if your delivery postcode is part of it, or see Australia Post’s Express Delivery Estimator (origin is Brisbane Metro) . Customers residing in the Brisbane Metro area can also arrange a free pick-up from our prep kitchen at The Small Crop, Wynnum.

Unless noted otherwise, 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.

    Awesome cheese box to order. Ordered for a street cheese party & the selection, quality & flavour of these cheeses were second to none. Highly recommend giving this box a go – you won’t regret it!
