Is it OK to like cheese more than most people? You’re not alone.
We were going to start with a pun but we thought it’d be too cheesy. Un-brie-leavable. C’mon, you can’t blame us, cheese puns are too gouda. Anyway, cheese makes us all smile, that’s exactly the reason why we say it before getting our picture taken. We’ve been on a cheese-fuelled tour of Liverpool and have come up with some of the best cheese boards you just simply must go and devour.
This is for the people who laugh at chocolate fudge cake being a serious option instead of a cheese board and for those who order a sharing cheese board knowing full well they won’t be doing any sharing. You might be too distracted by the cheese to notice that some pictures do indeed have meat in them, we got the best pictures we could considering we were usually half way through the board before realising we needed to get a picture.
Berry & Rye
This speakeasy bar might be better known for drinks but their cheese board is not to be underestimated. Whisky and cheese are two world’s that should collide more often.
Cheese & Co
Sweet dreams are made of brie. Even the ‘We Want Plates’ movement wouldn’t be angry at that.
Liverpool Cheese Company
The undeniable cheese kings of Liverpool have been keeping everyone full to the brim with Brie for some time now. At their monthly cheese clubs and schools, they bring a variety of cheese and it looks a little something like his. Yeah, we know.
Filter & Fox
This cheese board is sheer filth. This is the cheeseboard other cheeseboards dream about. They have a pretty good wine selection to help wash it down, too.
The Little Deli Crosby
Home of the Buddha Bowl & Grazing Platter, specialists in all dietary needs. Eat in and take away. One of the most epic cheese boards you’ll ever see.
An absolute hidden gem proving good things (and cheese) are worth walking for. They’ve got a little corner of the room where they cut it in front of you, that’s how proud they are of their selection.
Writer’s Block is the new kids on the Lark Lane block that offer a tranquil and serene space to spend your time. Jazz, candle lights and a killer cocktail menu go so well with their cheeseboard.
Black Lodge Brewery
Either in their shop at The Baltic Triangle or their pop-up in Baltic Market, you can enjoy the wonders of cheese. As they brew their own beer, you can be sure they’ve got something nice to wash it down with.
The Fat Flamingo
The suggested way to eat this is to ‘dive head first’. Everything on thus plate has been sourced within a few miles of the plate, making it extra special.
East Avenue Bakehouse
Even looking at this picture just makes us emotional. Be rude not to have a glass of vino on the side, wouldn’t it?
The Art School
Do you remember when restaurants used to have dessert trollies? Well, The Art School kind of do that but with cheese instead.
They might specialise in small plates, but this cheese board is anything but.
60 Hope St
60 Hope Street is elegant, contemporary and puts traditional twists on the best of British. A cheeseboard however, simply cannot be improved so there’s no fancy twists or deconstructions, it’s just cheese.
One of our favourite things to do is to head to Lunya, get a glass of nice Spanish wine and treat this cheeseboard with the respect it deserves.
This one has grapes so it’s kinda healthy, right? At least one of your five a day if you ask us.
Don’t know whether to frame it or eat it.
Jam Restaurant & Bar
Liverpool’s new gluten free restaurant specialising in afternoon tea also do a pretty mean cheese board. Go see for yourself.
The Hub Alehouse & Kitchen
This one even has grapes which, we’re pretty sure, makes it one of your five a day and very healthy.
