While it’s hard to say “no” to a generous serving of sweet bread pudding for dessert, the Brits also do dessert in other ways we love. One tradition that’s completely effortless is the classic pairing of good quality cheese and digestive cookies. Sound strange? It’s not. This pairing is a match made in heaven and you’ll be surprised how quickly guests gobble it up. The best part? All you have to do is pick up the cheese and cookies in store. We offer both McVitties Digestives (Britian’s #1 digestive cookie) and a selection of beautiful Wensleydale Creamery cheeses at Michael-Angelo’s.
Our tips for a successful “Cheese and Digestives” Dessert:
- Pull the cheese out of the fridge at least an hour before serving (you want the cheese to be close to room temperature for optimum deliciousness)
- Arrange the digestive cookies in alternating rows on a tray (just because this dessert is effortless doesn’t mean it shouldn’t look pretty)
- Serve cheeses with visual and textural interest like the Wensleydale Creamery Yorkshire & Cranberries cheese pictured here
