The Cheese Lady

A Story of Passion

The Cheese Lady was founded in 2017 by Svetlana, a bestselling author and cheese professional with 20 years of experience in cheese. We are driven by her belief in the profound connection between great cheese and the well-being of body and soul. Cheese is a wholesome food but it also brings us joy, helps us slow down and savour life with our favourite people. 

Our mission is to support small artisan producers and spread the joy of fine cheese throughout the UK, making it accessible to all who appreciate its exquisite qualities and intricacies of natural flavours.

Rest assured, we take meticulous care in ensuring your cheeses arrive to you in the same splendid condition they left our store:

  • Each cheese is hand-cut just before dispatch.
  • Our cheeses are wrapped in specialised cheese paper, extending their freshness.
  • National orders are dispatched through overnight couriers.
  • We use thermal pouches and ice packs to maintain ideal temperature during transit.
  • You will receive a tracking number to monitor the progress of your order.

Setting Ourselves Apart

Our aim is to deliver first-class quality of product and service so we do everything with utmost attention to detail and care.

Investing in Excellence

It's essential to note that fine cheese is a premium product, reflecting the artisan craftsmanship and quality of the milk used in their creation. 

These cheeses are the result of dedicated work by artisans who understand the intricacies of milk and employ time-honoured traditional techniques to extract the most exquisite flavours and aromas. Additionally, no effort is spared in maturing these cheeses to absolute perfection!

The quality of fine cheese rivals that of luxury goods, such as a Chanel bag, but it offers this exceptional quality at a fraction of the price.

Is This for You?

Our farmhouse and artisan cheeses cater to individuals with discerning palates who relish the complexity and nuances of flavours that develop naturally from the sheer complexity of wholesome milk.

However, we recognise that fine cheese may not suit everyone's taste, and we encourage you to indulge only if it truly resonates with you.

This is for you, IF YOU LOVE:

  • Complex, nuanced flavors
  • All-natural products
  • Premium quality

This is NOT for you, if you:

  • Prefer cheeses with heavily masked flavours.
  • Mild cheeses.
  • Seek products at rock-bottom prices.

Timing Your Cheese Adventure
