CHEESE SELECTION – JANUARY 2019
AGED MATURE GOUDA - ENGLAND - COWS’ MILK – PASTEURISED, VEGETARIAN. A mature Cornish Gouda. This cheese is handmade by a Dutch family that moved to Cornwall in 1998 to run a dairy farm in Lanreath. Using green energy they make and mature this delicious vintage cheese which is aged between 14 and 18 months. This ageing process gives it an incredible rich flavour with very large crystals giving it an amazing crunch and a little bit of a kick! A fantastic alternative to Cheddar.
LE DELICE TRUFFLES - FRANCE– COWS’ MILK – PASTEURISED. This is a triple cream cheese with shaved truffle throughout. The characteristic light, creamy interior is complimented by the delicate perfume of black truffles – it is like eating whipped cream with truffles. The texture is smooth and soft – not runny, but definitely ‘melt-in-the-mouth’ territory. Perfect cheese to feature on a cheese board. It will pair well with fresh breads and dried fruit as well as chocolate!
CORRA LINN - SCOTLAND – SHEEP’S MILK – UNPASTEURISED - VEGETARIAN. The idea originally came as a solution to a problem; the farm had a glut of sheeps' milk in the spring and early summer. They were only making blue cheese so now Corra Linn is made during the period there is lots of milk. It has a characteristic nutty flavour with sweet notes. Once pressed overnight it is rubbed with locally grown and refined rapeseed oil and wrapped in traditional muslin cheese cloth and matured for 4 months to a year. Flavours are lightly floral and brothy with a feathery, slightly grainy textured paste. When chewed the texture is creamy and succulent.
TOR - ENGLAND– GOATS’ MILK – UNPASTEURISED – VEGETARIAN. Ash covered semi-soft goat cheese made by White Lake in Somerset. Pyramid shaped cheese that can easily compete with a French Valencay. Tor Pyramid has a fresh, clean, slightly lactic aroma with a citrus flavour and is slightly salty. With a smooth texture, Tor is matured for around four weeks. Tor is one of England's favourite artisan goat cheeses and is a fantastic alternative to the French Valencay.
FINE ENGLISH BATH OVALS - All-butter, large, crisp, neutral biscuits for cheese.
