Barkham Blue has a very distinctive appearance. Made in a 1kg ammonite shaped round, it is covered in an attractive natural mould ripened rustic rind. The deep yellow moist interior is spread with dark blue – green veins. It has a rich blue taste, smooth buttery texture with a melt in the mouth flavour, without the harshness associated with some blue cheese.
Kidderton Ash Goats
Kidderton Ash looks special from the outset. It is sprinkled with ash prior to maturing which promotes the growth of its fluff white coat but also produces a fabulous visual effect that can be appreciated when the cheese is sliced. The contrast of textures can be enjoyed from the soft white coat, the firmer charcoal ash layer and then the soft luscious goats’ cheese in the centre. The velvety texture of the cheese when young becomes creamier as it matures. Made at Wilson Fields Farm with pasteurised goats’ milk from Nicola Butler’s pedigree herd.
The Little Black Bomber is a strong, extra mature cheddar cheese that packs a punch as a powerful presence on any cheeseboard with a vintage Cheddar taste. Unsurprising with the company’s strap-line for this cheese being “Cheddar with Attitude”! completely wrapped in a black wax, which retains a moist, smooth texture, distinctive from other traditional Cheddars which are usually more crumbly.
Up at Neal’s Yard Dairy, the storeman Bill Oglethorpe began to experiment with the cheese, using the 'washed rind' technique which affects texture, taste, smell (more!), and the quality of the rind (softer, stickier). You can guess the next bit: Oglethorpe's modified Jersey Shield became 'Ogle Shield'.
Eve is a cute little beauty of a cheese. Made by Pete Humphries of Somerset's Whitelake Cheese, this small and meltingly soft goats’ cheese is washed in Somerset Cider Brandy and then wrapped in vine leaves. Unpasteurised and non-vegetarian, maker Pete Humphries drew on the character of the French Epoisses in devising the cheese.
