Cheese is for every day, not just for Valentine's Day!
Extend your romantic cheeseboard beyond just cheese and crackers, and to a cheesy romantic dinner for two. We asked Godminster what you could rustle up with the cheddar from our Valentine's Day Box - that's if you have any left.

- 50g butter, plus extra for greasing
- 50g plain flour
- 300ml milk
- 5 eggs
- 2 tsp English mustard
- 150g Godminster Vintage Organic Cheddar
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.
- Generously butter four ramekins.
- Melt the butter in a pan and stir in the flour, then cook for one minute.
- Gradually add the milk, stirring continuously until the mixture becomes thick. Allow too cool slightly.
- Separate the eggs, adding the yolks to the sauce.
- Mix well, then add the mustard and cheese.
- In another bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff, then fold gently into the cheese mixture.
- Spoon into the ramekins and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until risen and golden.
Chef’s tip: Run a knife around the top of the ramekin before placing it in the oven.
