Say Cheese: Lorenzi Milano Bamboo Parmesan Cheese Set

Editor’s Picks: Cigar Humidor, Motorised Surfboard and Pure Gold Spectacles

With Christmas jingling its way over the horizon, it’s time you dusted off your cheese board. Or, better yet, why not buy a new one — such as this bamboo parmesan cheese set from Lorenzi Milano? Complete with grater and knife, the Iroko wood has been treated with linseed oil, to ensure the grain will darken over time — ageing as finely as your chosen chunk of Parmesan.

As such, when Prince Harry shrugged on a shirt from Frank & Eileen when visiting Fraser Island in Australia recently, we had to take a look. The Prince favours the ‘Luke’ collection, from which we’re eyeing this suitably-autumnal blue & black plaid number.
