A REVIEW OF THE CHEESE CLUB

Wednesday, September 05, 2018 Cape Town, South Africa


Real quick confession: cheese is life, I am obsessed with cheese, if you mention the word cheese my ear perk up, I have not met a cheese I didn’t want to inhale. 

A while back I attended a mom bloggers meet up hosted by #ctmomswhoblog the event was fun and we were spoiled with so many goodies. Fast forward to 2 weeks ago, I was cleaning out my junk drawer and found a whole batch of coupons and price off vouchers – these feature quite heavily at blogger events and usually I just pop them in a drawer and forget about them. On this particular day I was cleaning out the pile, trying to sort through what I knew I would use, what was expired and what I would never likely purchase. And then the universe aligned in my favour and into my lap fell a voucher for a Ploughman’s Platter from The Cheese Club


 I didn’t actually know what gold I had just struck, and it was only after reading the little bit of card that I realised my absolute fortune. Well guys, let me tell you something right now:

THIS PLATTER IS PURE FREAKING HEAVEN AND I HAVE NOT BEEN PAID TO SAY THIS, BUT YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY GO AND TRY OUT THIS SERVICE. 


If you have ever attempted to make a cheese platter, you’ll know that it’s not a simple thing. In fact a lot of my weekend anxiety during summer stems from not knowing which cheese to pair with which preserve. The struggle is real. The Cheese Club recognizes that struggle, and lifts the burden. The Ploughman’s Platter comes with:

1 x Fairview Blue Rock - 100g
Full fat, semi-soft blue mould Roquefort-style cheese, with a firm and crumbly texture.

1 x Fairview Chevin Garlic & Herb - 100g
A smooth and flavourful goat’s milk log, rolled in garlic and herbs, and ending off on a salty note.

1 x Woodsmoked Cheddar - 150g
Artisan cheese, cold smoked in a beech wood smoker to give the cheese a natural smoked flavour.

1 x Sweet Red Pepper Chutney - 120ml
Handmade chutney. Slightly spicy with a hint of paprika.

1 x Crunchy Cucumber Ribbons - 125ml
The perfect crunchy pickle for cheese. Pairs beautifully with wood-smoked or farm-style cheddar.

1 x Crushed Walnuts - 50g
Raw, shelled and crushed into smaller pieces. Perfect match for blue cheese.

1 x Water Biscuits - 125g
Thin, crisp, unsweetened biscuit.

1 x Sourdough Loaf
A par-baked, crusty artisan bread.

1 x Prosciutto Crudo - 70g
Sweet, delicate, dry cured Italian ham. Finely sliced.

2 x Fresh Pears
Fresh-from-the-farm, seasonal variety. Sweet and crunchy.

1 x Wild Rocket - 40g
Fresh salad leaf with a peppery flavour.


And it costs R350!!! Do I need to tell you what it would cost to put this platter together yourself? It would cost around R480! But if you’re anything like me, when I hit that cheese aisle all bets are off. I usually end up overspending so massively simply because I just cannot control myself around cheese. It’s pretty obvious why I am so obsessed with The Cheese Club right? Affordable, convenient and delicious!

Wait. I didn’t actually tell you the best part. The convenience part. If you order before 10.30 am, your order will be delivered on the same day. I placed my order at 9.45 am on a Friday and by 12.00 pm it was being packed into my fridge. This is an amazing service for last minute get togethers or just any Friday night really.

I am officially converted to The Cheese Club cause. My only real question is:

WHAT WILL I ORDER NEXT?
