We are very excited to announce that our mail order sales (online and telephone) have been rapidly expanding over the past years. With this in mind and Richard's recent health situation, in 2013 (of which he is now fully back on track and fighting form again after his operation), both Richard & Christine, owners of The Truckle Cheese Co., have taken a decision, that in order for the mail order to progress further they needed to make some changes. So from 30th January 2014 Victoria’s Deli will become the distributor of the Truckle Cheese’s online shop. You can view our range by clicking here. We are very pleased that we have found another family run business who believes in top quality products and excellent customer services like we thrive on, we feel is a great compliment to our already popular range.
Richard and all of the Truckle Cheese team would like to thank all of their customers for their past support and interest in their products and hope that this will continue through Victoria’s Deli.
The Truckle Cheese Co will still be out and about at various shows and events throughout the year where they will be delighted to share with you their new product range that they have planned for the future. This change enables Richard more time to concentrate on what he enjoys doing best which is developing the core range, to meet with customer demands in this exciting and evermore popular market place and to meet with their customers in person at the many shows/exhibitions we attend.

Hooray it has arrived!!
The hard work has paid off and we are delighted to announce that our take on Piccalilli is here and available in stock. Be the first to taste and review this fantastic product.
Richard has come up with this recipe, which is a great new twist on the classic Piccalilli. Delicious sweet and sour pickle with a background heat of chilli. Particularly good with our range of cheeses and cold meats or pies

The Truckle Cheese Co have teamed up with Majestic Wines to share wine matches with our favourite cheeses!
This month its our Mature Vintage Cheddar Cheese which is our Cheese of the Month.
"This month’s cheese and wine match has got to be the easiest yet. I didn’t have to think too much about it because I’m relying on the age-old match of Claret and cheese. Clarets (wines from Bordeaux) are suited to most cheeses, but do particular well with cheddars. This mature English farmhouse cheddar is wonderfully rich and creamy will compliment most clarets because the tannins found in the wine are softened by the proteins in the cheese creating a velvety sensation on the palate.
The wine I have gone for is the Chateau Greysac, 2007 Medoc, Cru Bourgeois, £9.99 when you buy 2 or more bottles. The main grapes in any claret are Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon and Medoc wines are Cabernet Sauvignon dominated, which gives the wine firm gripp tannis. Aromas of classic cassic, black cherry, plum, vanilla and spice. A medium body consisting of ripe currants, and juicy plums, fine tannins, elegantly balanced fruits, and a lingering finish. To be honest this cheese is so versatile that any red with a good level of tannin would complement this cheese but I have chosen a claret due to the fact its always been a traditional match and with the nights getting colder, a good claret will go along way to keep you warm this Christmas".
