cheese PriCES 2020
All these cheese are sourced from farms, small holdings and cheese makers in the South of England and Wales. I sell what I think are the best of their kind in each style of cheese. If you don't believe me, you only have to try them, to change your mind!
Vintage Sparkenhoe is, in my opinion, the very best Red Leicester and the only raw milk Leicester in Britain. It's at least 18 months old and made in Leicestershire!
Montgomery's Cheddar from Somerset is the best Cheddar and Gorwydd Caerphilly is the very best Caerphilly currently made.
Witheridge in hay is a unique cheese in Britain, which comes from an organic farm near Henley-on-Thames.
Evenlode and Rollright are special washed cheeses, made by David Jowett, in Gloucestershire. During 2020 I hope to be able to taste the first of his new raw milk Double Gloucester. I will keep you updated!
Gloucester with Truffles, a joint project between 2 English food producers is also very sought after. Simon Weaver makes the cheese on his organic farm in the Cotswolds.
I have a wide range of sheep and goat's cheese, including Peter Humphrey's Award winning raw goat's milk cheeses, Rachel, Katherine and Tor from Somerset..
and Harbourne goats' Blue (Devon).
I will soon be stocking a new local firm sheep's milk cheese from Carlton in Bedfordshire.
Three excellent soft, brie style, cheeses made from sheep's milk are Norfolk White Lady, Wigmore (Berkshire) and Flower Marie (Sussex). They tend to be seasonal and not available during the lambing season.
....And Blues!!! There are so many excellent English Blues, I struggle to please everyone! My favourite is the raw sheep's milk Beenleigh Blue from Devon. For a more conventional blue choose Barkham blue (Berkshire), Sparkenhoe Blue (Leicestershire) or Perl Las (Wales).
