Cheese, connoisseurs will tell you, deserves to be recognised as a food group on its own.
Scots have come a long way since we chanted ‘Scottish cheddar, it’s oor kind o’ cheese,’ on a popular TV ad, and there is no shortage of aficionados now willing to wax lyrical about this finest of dairy products.
Well, join the queue, cheese-fanciers, for today’s Big Deal offering a refined cheese board for two, along with a couple of glasses of wine each in the elegant surroundings of No. 29 in the heart of Glasgow.
Occupying two floors of a stunning 19th century sandstone building on Royal Exchange Square, No. 29 is a chic and fashionable spot to meet in the city centre.
It’s an ideal venue for an enjoyable session of cheese sampling. Available seven days a week, this Big Deal is for two people to share a cheese board along with two glasses of red or white wine in 29’s Oyster Bar.
The 29 cheese board offers a seasonal collection of artisan farmhouse cheeses with fruit chutney and biscuits, the ideal accompaniment to a couple of relaxed glasses of wine in smart surroundings.
