More about this
This Father’s Day cheese selection box includes:
Yoredale (Old Roan). Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
In 1957 the single last farmer producing Wensleydale cheese in the Yorkshire Dales gave up. Over 50 years later in July 2019, third generation dairy farmers, Ben and Sam Spence re-started that tradition in the heart of Wensleydale. Using fresh milk from local cows, they make an old-fashioned Wensleydale cheese, not quite as crumbly as its modern relations, with a fresh, sharp yet light flavour and supple creamy texture.
Baron Bigod Brie. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Sold only when perfectly ripe, this modern creation is Britain’s first unpasteurised Brie to be made on the farm in traditional large (3 kg) form and ladled only by hand. The French will be jealous…
Sparkenhoe Vintage. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
The only unpasteurised farmhouse Red Leicester made in the world. This Sparkenhoe Vintage is aged for 14 months which gives it a strong, powerful flavour.
Young Buck. Unpasteurised cows’ milk. 250g.
Young Buck is based on an old text on Stilton that Mike found. Different from modern-day Stilton, it is made outside the region with unpasteurised milk, a slow-gentle acidification of the curd and hand-ladling, but it retains some similarities – rubbing up, hastening (to encourage a ruby-red yeast rind) and piercing late to encourage blueing. It is then aged for 12-15 weeks before being split and sold by The Courtyard Dairy only at its peak
