The order arrived this morning safe and sound. Thank you!

Any tips for re-heating the hot cross buns from frozen?
Do you speak German? I was checking same thing on this website 5 minutes ago.

For buns scroll all the way down.

The ones we sent to you yesterday were baked fresh on Wednesday. But if you want to freeze them to use later, just let them de-frost on their own. You can eat them just like that, but I would say 5 mins in a 150c oven will give them that fresh baked texture and smell. Thanks!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Sorry to ask a dumb question but is there a ‘day’ to roll out the buns? Good Friday, Easter Sunday, etc.

They are resting safely in the freezer.

I’d like to ‘surprise’ the bride if I can.

Good friday is the traditional day to eat them. They were traditionally eaten to mark the end of lent.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Enjoying our cheese and oat cakes which just arrived today! Delicious and we definitely plan to reorder . Hang in there as many are rooting for you and other small business owners!

Speaking of which, I was contacted by a wine merchant who is offering a 20% discount on his inventory with free delivery in Switzerland.

PM me if you need more info regarding his offer/inventory!

Thanks for the order and the feedback. The last 10 days have been crazy, we had over 3 months of average web orders in just 10 days, hopefully we didn't mess any of them up but it was pretty hectic.

Please, send me the link for the wine!

I don’t normally quote myself but I’ll make an exception here.

We didn’t quite make it to Good Friday and scoffed one pack of hot cross buns over the weekend. I can confirm that they are truly delicious.

We have a second pack to look forward to for Easter.

If you're going to eat them Friday, take them out Friday. They'll only need a couple of hours to defrost.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

I was planning on serving them on Friday morning ... perhaps I should get up at the crack of dawn. I also wanted to try your trick of heating them at 150 for a few minutes.

... or maybe before bedtime Thursday move them to the fridge?

I wouldn't put them in the fridge, they can get a bit moist in the bag. I would just get them out Fri morning, even 1 hour before (take them out of the bag and cover them with kitchen paper, then 5 mins in the oven, they'll be as good as freshly baked!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

A man with a plan. I will do as you suggest.

I doubt if she will able to scoff down the entire package. At least not in one go. How long should they remain edible, after freezing?

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

I bumped into the people at Legends over the weekend in Flims. Looking a bit shell shocked after having baked almost 2000 hot cross buns and still had another 1000+ to go.

My buns arrived today at 7.30am. What a service! Hats off to these guys!

Bumped in the time of Corona. So if I were to guess it was 1.99m.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Placed our first order with you on saturday. Arrived yesterday thanks, and now enjoying the excellent cheeses, most of which I'd not eaten before, so a great new experience.

Thanks also for the small jar of lemon curd. Can you eat this with the cheese like a chutney?

Thanks for the order! No, it's best eaten as a sweet conserve with toast, bread scones etc. Or just eat it as it is!

Just seen you have some Green Fig jam on back order. The mini jar of lemon curd is a freeby, Tiptree sent me a box of them to give out as "Thanks Yous", I'll send a mini jar with something different for you next week!
