More about this
This award-winning cheese selection box includes:
Killeen. Pasteurised goats’ milk. 200g.
Leaving Holland in search of the Irish ‘good-life’, Marion Roeleveld developed this goats’ milk Gouda with milk given by her own goats. Killeen is aged in-house by The Courtyard Dairy for 11 months; the cheese develops a greater depth of flavour as the sweetness and toasty-roasted hazelnut flavours show through.
If Killeen is out of season it may be replaced with Rachel or Holbrook – also goats cheeses.
Tunworth. Pasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
An English Camembert good enough to make a Frenchman weep: vegetal, porcini-flavoured and intense. The Courtyard Dairy select only particular Tunworths that are more wrinkled, for a more intense flavour.
Winner: Supreme Champion (British Cheese Awards 2013 & 2006).
Old Winchester. Pasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian. 250g.
Needing an outlet for their milk, Mike and Judie developed Old Winchester. This Gouda-style cheese, aged for 18 months, is caramelised, smoky and with crystalline crunches.
Winner: Best Modern British Cheese (British Cheese Awards 2007).
Leeds Blue. Pasteurised sheeps’ milk. 250g.
Mario Olianas moved to Yorkshire from Italy in 2001. Hailing from an Italian family of budding gourmets and cheese-makers, Mario uses sheep’s milk from Harrogate to create this smooth, rich and creamy Leeds Blue.
All the cheeses in this selection box have also been previous award and medal-winning cheeses at The British Cheese Awards, World Cheese Awards and International Cheese Awards.
