CHEESE SELECTION – FEBRUARY 2020
PECORINO SARDO DOP - ITALY – SHEEP MILK – UNPASTEURISED. Pecorino Sardo has unique and special features, which allow it to gain the Protected Designation of Origin, the most important European recognition for foods. It is a very ancient cheese, made from sheep’s milk. Pecorino is from Sardinia with milk from a special Sardinian breed of a herd of a 1000 free grazing sheep. It’s aged for three months and has the lovely nutty flavour you’d expect from a hard ewe’s milk cheese with a slight tartness at the end. You can taste their rich and herby diet in this slightly pungent hard cheese. It’s not to be confused with a Pecorino Romano which is much saltier and stronger.
HAWES RESERVED WAXED WENSLEYDALE - ENGLAND – COW’S MILK – PASTEURISED - VEGETARIAN. Made by the only cheesemaker in Hawes, Wensleydale – Wensleydale Creamery, this green waxed cheese is creamy, yet crumbly, and full of clean flavour. It is aged for up to 6 months producing a fuller, deeper mature flavours. It has hints of wild honey with a balanced note of acidity. A strong tangy flavour. Cheese production in Hawes has a fantastic history. The first creamery was built in 1897, and just about survived the depression of the 1930s. Eventually in the hands of Dairy Crest, the creamery closed in May 1992, but former employees and a local businessman managed to get things back on track and cheese was then produced.
MORANGIE BRIE - SCOTLAND – COW’S MILK – PASTEURISED - VEGETARIAN. Made by Scottish producer Ruaridh Stone from Highland Fine Cheese in Tain, Scotland, this wonderful Morangie Brie is smooth and creamy with a slightly sweet flavour. The cheese is enclosed in an edible white rind. This mould ripened brie is made from cow’s milk. Light and simple, this was granted gold for the best British brie at the 2009 British Cheese Awards.
HARBOURNE BLUE - ENGLAND– GOAT’S MILK – PASTEURISED - VEGETARIAN. Harbourne Blue is a semi-soft cheese. For the first time, it was made by Robin Congdon and later on, it is produced by Ticklemore Cheese in Devon. For maturation, the cheese takes around 10 weeks and forms a crumbly, dense and melting texture. As it is made by hands, therefore, the cheese retains its sweet, spicy taste and aromatic smell. Harbourne Blue has yoghurty, clean flavours, tending towards the floral and aromatic. It usually has very light blue veining and a crumbly texture.
FINE ENGLISH WATER CRACKERS. Crispy-textured crackers for cheese, with a dark 'nutty' taste.
