More about this

The soft and smelly cheese selection includes:

Winslade.  Pasteurised cows’ cheese, vegetarian.  230g.
A recent creation – a cross between Vacherin and Camembert, encircled by a spruce strip. Winslade is matured and sold by The Courtyard Dairy when it is fully ripe, rich, soft and gooey.

Finn.  Unpasteurised cows’ milk, vegetarian.  200g.
A triple-cream cheese, a classic of the French Parisian style.  Extra cream is added to the milk before making the cheese, ensuring it has 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.

St James.  Unpasteurised sheep’s milk.  (Or Rollright.  Pasteurised cow’s milk.  200g.)
An unusual find: a washed-rind sheep’s cheese. The flavoursome milk of the Lacaune breed of sheep produces savoury, meaty flavours with a creamy, rich sweetness as St James breaks down. (When St James is out of season (November to April) this will be replaced with an alternative washed-rind cheese such as Rollright; a soft cows’ milk cheese from the Cotswolds.)

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, soft creamy and delicate.
