CROTTIN - 90g
GOATS, UNPASTUERISED, FRANCE
Crottin de Chavignol cheese originates from the Loire, Chavignol in France. It is one of those rarest cheeses that can be eaten at various stages of its maturity. At the start of the maturing process, it has a creamy, nutty taste. As the cheese continues to mature a more pronounced flavour develops, but it never gets sour, and the pate becomes dry and brittle. Its rind develops into a rough and hard layer over a period of time.
BURTS BLUE - 180g
COWS, PASTEURISED, VEGETARIAN, ENGLAND
Made by Claire Burt in Cheshire from local milk, this little blue cheese is creamy in texture, with a sweet tang from the blue veins. The younger cheese has more resistance to the touch and the flavours are more piquant and upfront, as the cheese matures, the flavours become more rounded and the resistance gives ways to a much softer texture.
TUNWORTH - 250g
COW, PASTEURISED, ENGLAND
Created by Stacey Hedges who decided to make a Camembert in a style akin to the traditional French Camembert. Consequently, she set up Hampshire Cheeses, and Tunworth was born (named after the nearby hamlet of Tunworth, near Basingstoke). It has a creamy texture and a thin wrinkled rind with vegetal, truffley, garlicky flavours. The overall flavour effect is long lasting, mouth-filling and harmonious.
BABY CORNISH YARG - 1kg
COW, PASTUERISED, ENGLAND
Made by Catherine Mead of Lynher Dairies traditional nettle wrapped Yarg is a semi-hard cheese, creamy under its natural rind and slightly crumbly in the core. Made using pasteurised cows' milk the cheese is hand painted with nettle leaves and left to mature for 5 weeks. Yarg was first produced thirty years ago on Bodmin Moor by a farmer named Alan Gray who found a seventeenth-century recipe in an attic and decided to give it a go. Yarg comes from the backward spelling of his name.
