More about this
This cheese gift includes:
Finn. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 200g.
Triple-cream cheese, a classic of the French Parisian style. Extra cream is added to the milk before making the cheese, giving a rich, delectable flavour and smooth texture. The Courtyard Dairy sells Finn at three weeks old, when it still has a fresh lemony flavour to temper the richness.
Fellstone. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Tom and Clare Noblet started to make cheese in 2015 on their dairy farm on the edge of the Lake District. Based on a traditional old ‘dales’ recipe of the north of England, Fellstone is aged for three months by which time it has the fresh lemony-lactic flavours of a good Wensleydale, with a supple, firmer texture.
This is farmhouse Wensleydale how it used to be, and it’s still being developed – Fellstone is one to watch.
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; caramelised, smoky and with crystalline crunches.
Cote Hill Blue. Unpasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian. 290g.
With the price of wholesale milk falling, the Davenports took a short course in cheese making and invented Britain’s first unpasteurised soft blue: Cote Hill Blue.
