💜 Planning something special for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations? 💜

Have you thought about a charcuterie board? 🧀 They are simple to put together, look incredible and everyone loves to sample different items from them.

Here at Cheese Pantry at Connage we have a wide selection of cheeses, biscuits, chutneys and so much more that would make an outstanding platter to share with your guests and give you that wow factor.

We have added an easy guide for the perfect board to give you some help to achieve a show stopping platter for all to enjoy. As well as how to build a board too with a step by step guide of how to put it all together perfectly.

Enjoy 😄

We all deserve a treat, especially on Valentines Day. Our Deli Graze Box has had a romantic makeover to include Connage Highland Dairy Highland Heart organic brie, our very own freshly baked chocolate brownie and because you can never have enough chocolate, we have also included some Hotel Chocolat wee hearts. To enjoy this romantic feast for two, book online and state Valentines in the comments box.

It’s 2021 wedding season 👰🏻 🤵🏻 🍾 The dreamiest set up I personally worked on since the set up of Torta in 2020. I was deligted to create a sweet table and a cheese stack for this rustic wedding at Brodie Castle the other weekend We had a long chat with the bride and the brides mum as there was a few options she liked. First of all as it’s times of the Covid-19 pandemic she decided to go for cupcakes instead of cutting the cake on her big day. She is also dairy free hence cupcakes were all made of carrot cakes and a vegan cream cheese icing dressed with eucalyptus. The cake was for pictures and was enjoyed by the closer family the day after. The set up required us to peel and grate about 4kg of carrots 🥕🥕🥕 The cheese stack which cheeses were supplied by Connage Highland Dairy were for their market set up to nibble while dancing and enjoying the drinks after their ceremony. Huge thank you to Beth at Wild Roses Photography for giving me her stunning images and here’s to more wedding Peeps. Flowers: Wild Blossom Floristry Event styling: Aye Do Events Happy Tuesday Peeps I am soon back to those bakes Katie 💋
