Cheddar Wedge | Westcombe Dairy

Westcombe Dairy is one of the most important Cheddar producing dairies in the whole World. They manufacture an exceptional mature cheese from heart of Somerset. This is an artisan mature farmhouse cheddar made using traditional methods. The cheese is clothbound which gives it a fantastic earthy taste.

This is really good and full of rural influence! Totally hand-made and bursting with flavours.

Where’s it from? This is made by The Westcombe Dairy in Evercreech, Somerset. They tracked down respected professional cheese maker Bob Bramley who they head hunted from another cheddar business and a new era began at Westcombe Dairy.

With his help they have become devoted to traditional cheddar making. ‘Each cheese is a work of art,’ Tom enthuses, ‘The funny thing is there isn’t really a secret recipe. Making cheese is like making wine; everyday is a new vintage!’

Goats Cheese | Alex James | Farleigh Wallop

More ALEX JAMES CHEESE here

Farleigh Wallop is one of the great masterpieces from the Evenlode Partnership – which consists of cheese officianado Juliet Harbutt and Alex James of (Blur fame)

Farleigh Wallop is a wonderful goat cheese that is made in complete 115g rounds. It tastes fresh and clean and it has the slightest taste of thyme from the sprig that is pressed into the top of it.

It is reasonably firm with a delicate and subtle flavour.

What’s it taste like? Farleigh Wallop is more subtle than its washed cousin, Little Wallop, with a gentler, less obtrusive aroma. A sprig of Thyme rounds off its refined rustique look. No wonder it was voted Best Goat Cheese at 2008 British Cheese Awards.

Where’s it from? It is produced by the masters at White Lake Cheeses in Bagborough, Somerset which is a short distance from the Glastonbury festival site.

Here is a brief video about why Alex James went into cheese making:

* Epoisses has been banned on the Paris Metro because its extremely pungent aroma.

* There are no words to describe the smell of a Munster but it’s sweet taste belies its quite incredible stink.

* The soft and savoury taste of Oxford Blue’s creamy paste is shielded from the outside world by what looks like a brain that’s fallen in a pot of ink.

* And finally Finn deserves its place on the basis of its extravagant use of triple cream to give it a remarkable and strong taste.

Black-Eyed Susan | Brie

It’s not often a cheese is produced that is completely unique and utterly different from everything else, however Black-Eyed Susan is such a cheese.

The combination of peppercorns and jersey milk brie style cheese is totally amazing and the taste unexpected. One taste is enough to make this your new favourite ever cheese.

A richly creamy version of the ‘Goldilocks’ soft cheese that has been rolled in crushed peppercorns to produce this gorgeous crunchy textured and spicy tasting cheese from Somerset.

Organic pasteurised Jersey milk, by Godminster Vintage in Bruton, Somerset with milk from their own herd which is used and results in a delicious golden creamy cheese.

Oh, and it is named after a type of daisy! Black-Eyed Susan is a wrapped 150g circular whole cheese.

Cornish Yarg Truckle

Yarg is such an really tasty cheese but its hard to not focus on its looks but it really has a great taste as well: very creamy and zesty.

This delicious hard cheese from Cornwall is deliciously creamy under the rind and slightly crumbly in the core.

It has a young, fresh, slightly tangy taste and is made by hand in open round vats.

The cheese is wrapped in nettle leaves picked wild from neighbouring properties and frozen for use throughout the year. The leaves are carefully brushed onto the cheese in a traditional pattern and they attract wonderful natural occurring moulds of various colours, which help the cheese ripen.

As the cheese matures, the (edible) nettles give the cheese a mild slightly mushroomy taste.

The final product has an attractive, lacy pattern of leaves in blue and green, giving the finished cheese a wonderful appearance.

This cheese is made by the Gray family (get it? Yarg is Gray backwards!!) at their Lynher Dairies cheese dairy.
