Gold, Cheese And Myrrh – My Christmas Wishlist
I might be a little too old for Santa now but I thought I would put my Christmas wishlist out there anyway – you never know. Somehow, I’ve managed not to get too carried away and just stuck to five gifts which in my eyes are the ultimate gifts for any cheese lover. So, here they are:
• Fondue Set
A fondue set is a bit old school but you can’t go wrong with some melted cheese! If I had one of these bad boys I would be the Queen of dinner parties. I could even see myself sitting on a Saturday night watching Netflix with my cheese fondue. I just need to get myself a real coal fire and I’ve got the perfect setting. Cue the jokes about Santa bringing me coal.
I have been obsessed with raclette ever since my trip to Cheese Fest Aberdeen and I’m dying to recreate that special moment at the Raclette Brothers stand when they scraped all that lovely melted cheese over my potatoes. Santa, are you listening?
The Partyclette is the ultimate gift for cheese lovers. However, it’s all fun and games until your jeans don’t fit. Seriously, if I get this for Christmas I’m going to get fat – and I mean really fat – because I’ll probably start putting melted cheese on everything.
• Anna Mae’s Mac N Cheese Cookbook
Okay, so I can’t cook to save myself and I have never in my life cooked something from a cookbook but there’s a special place on my bookshelf for Anna Mae’s Mac N Cheese cookbook.
I love macaroni cheese and my better half is getting better and better at it so if I got this book for Christmas he could let pick something that I want to try and make it for me. Yeh I’m probably not going to get this for Christmas, am I? But a girl can dream. I’ll just need to stick with my Cheesey Pasta for now.
• Cheese Making Kit
There’s probably more chance of me getting the Anna Mae’s Mac N Cheese cookbook than a cheese making kit. How cool would that be though if I could make my own cheese?
The Ultimate Cheese Making Kit from The Big Cheese gives you enough ingredients to make a whopping 40 batches in 10 different varieties. It also has a shelf life of at least 12 months, so it could keep you going until next Christmas. In the right hands this would make a great gift.
• Lots and Lots of Cheese
What could be a better gift for a cheese lover than lots of cheese? Instead of Santa leaving a few truckles of cheese down my Christmas stocking, an annual subscription to The Cheese Society’s Monthly Cheese Club would be the Christmas gift that keeps on giving all year round.
The annual subscription costs £408 which might be a bit pricey but there are cheaper options such as the bi-monthly subscription at £210 and the quarterly subscription at £144.
Not long now until the big man drops down the chimney. I don’t like to blow my own trumpet but I’ve been pretty good this year, so I can’t wait to see what he leaves under the Christmas tree for me.
I know it’s probably a bit late in the day for Christmas shopping but most of these gifts are from Amazon, so Santa could always sign up for Amazon Prime and get next day delivery. Sorted!
This is my last blog post until after Christmas so I hope you all have a good one!
