Fine English Charcoal Squares
Charcoal Squares from the Fine Cheese Company. Butter is the second ingredient listed, which lends to the crackers a delicate and crumbly texture, reminiscent of a flaky pie crust. Charcoal gives the cracker its signature color, giving it both a visually stunning appearance on a cheese platter, as well as cutting the tangy flour flavor, leaving you with the perfect partner for your favorite cheese.

Coeur de Bray
Coeur de Bray
also called Coeur de Neufchatel, is one of many forms French cheese Neufchatel comes in, others being bonde (cylinders), carre (square shapes), and briquette (brick shape). It is a semi-soft cow's milk table cheese from the village of Neufchâtel-en-Bray in northern Normandy. Neufchatel is one of the country's oldest cheeses, dating as far back as 1035! Legend says that the tradition of creating the heart-shaped version that we love to serve during Valentine's Day, began during the Hundred Years War, when local girls made them to declare their love for the English soldiers. Neufchatel earned AOC status in 1969, and has a taste and texture reminiscent of Camembert: rich and nutty, with slight notes of mushroom and a yeasty aroma.
