Mothais is a mild, milky, easy-eating French goat's cheese.

The "feuille" is in fact a chestnut leaf, which is applied when the cheese is fresh, therefore adding to its development. As the leaves are dry when they are applied, they absorb moisture from the cheese, which is then gradually returned to the cheese during maturation, encouraging the paste to break down under the leaf.

The aged cheeses have hints of undergrowth and nuts, so providing an even wider range of flavours.

You can choose to collect your online order at our shop or have it delivered.

Our standard delivery charge for orders under £50 is £8 to any address in mainland Great Britain on an overnight service. Orders of £50 or more are delivered for free using this service. All subscriptions are also delivered free using this service.

Whilst most orders do arrive on the chosen date, we rely on a third party provider and therefore we cannot guarantee delivery dates. Your order may arrive 1-2 days after your preferred date. This is more likely at very busy times, particularly Christmas.

If you live within 8 miles of our Chelsea shop you may wish to use our local London Delivery service? The cost for this ranges from £6 to £19, depending on distance, and you can choose a delivery as soon as within the next hour or so, to a named one-hour slot and a date up to 6 months in the future. London Deliveries are made in our sturdy shop carrier bags. If you would like your order boxed, please leave us a note as you check out.

If you'd like to collect your order, simply choose 'Shop Collection' at the checkout, and a time and date that's convenient for you.

Please refer to our Ordering & Delivery page for more information.

All orders sent out on the next-day National Delivery service are packaged in our brown cardboard gift boxes.

Orders using our local London Delivery service are delivered in our shop carrier bags, unless there's a gift message, in which case we'll pack it in a box for you.

Everything inside the box will be cushioned and insulated with wood wool.

All the packaging we use can be re-used, or is biodegradable or fully recyclable.

As a general rule of thumb, we recommend around 100 grams per person for after dinner, and up to 150 grams if cheese is the focus of the meal.

If you are buying cheese to serve over a couple of days or as part of a buffet, it is advisable to buy a few larger pieces. This will look better and keep better than many small bits.

To help visualise weights, a good tip is to consider that a regular supermarket block of butter weighs 250 grams.

How long will my cheese last?

There are a huge array of factors which affect how long cheese will last, but as a general rule we would recommend eating your cheese within 5-10 days of receiving it. Softer cheeses should be eaten the soonest, whilst harder cheeses will generally last the longest.

If you need your cheese to last, buy larger pieces as these tend to keep better and longer. They will also look better on the dinner table, if you are entertaining guests for example. Also, buy it as close to when you want to serve it as possible (although if you are having your cheese delivered, also remember to allow for a few days leeway in case of delivery disruption).

If you have any concerns over whether your cheese is safe to eat, please drop us a line and we’ll be very happy to help.
