International superstar Lionel Richie is performing at the Cooper Associates County Ground on Sunday (June 11th) and one of the key components of this not-to-be-missed event will be the superb hospitality packages that have been specifically created to ensure that those present have the perfect evening.

The vital ingredient to any successful hospitality offering is the food, and thanks to one of Somerset County Cricket Club’s Official Partners, our guests will be able to eat, drink and be merry “All Night Long!”

“Hello, is it Brie you’re looking for?” – Exclusive Lionel Richie Cheese Board

Here is what the cheese boards will consist of:

Manchego – Made in the La Mancha region of Spain from the milk of sheep of the Manchega breed, their Manchego is aged for 12 months. It has a firm and compact consistency and a buttery texture. The cheese has a distinctive flavour, is well developed but not too strong, creamy with a slight piquancy, and leaves an aftertaste that is characteristic of sheep’s milk.

Délice de Bourgogne – A French cow’s milk cheese from the Burgundy region of France. It was first created in 1975 by Jean Lincet at Fromagerie Lincet. It is a soft-ripened triple-cream cheese. The creamy texture results from the extra cream that is added during the cheese-making process.

Blue D’Affinois – Sweet and buttery, with a hint of blue, made like Brie but with added cream for a rich, unctuous texture. Strength 2. Amazingly creamy and smooth, sweet and buttery, with just a hint of blue. Made in the Rhone-Alpes region of France, Blue d’Affinois is produced in a similar way to Brie, but cream is added to the milk before cheesemaking begins, which helps create its buttery flavour and rich texture.

Comte – French hard cheese, made with unpasteurised milk, this cheese is hand-selected from an exclusive fruitiere and slowly ripened in the Jura mountains.

Truffle Gouda – This Truffle Gouda is a stunning traditionally made Dutch farmhouse cheese, made of raw cow’s milk, with the addition of Italian black truffle from the mountains. This semi-firm cheese is ripened on wooden planks for a minimum of eight weeks, creating a delicious rich and creamy taste, with wonderful truffle flavours.

Paysan Breton Soft Cheese – A delicious traditional French whipped cream cheese seasoned with a hint of sea salt from the Guérande estuary in France. Whipped for a light and airy texture making it easy to spread or dip, endorsed by the Craft Guild of Chefs.
