August Cheese Box - this month chosen by cheesemonger Owen
If you order the subscription to be delivered in September it will be three different cheeses to the three listed below. The cheeses listed will only go out in boxes during the month of August.
Montagnolo - Cow’s Milk, Pasteurised, Vegetarian Rennet
Our only German cheese and it's a good one! A mellow triple cream soft blue with veining and a natural grey rind, very similar to a Cambozola but we think it's even better. It is subtle and gentle, sweet with hints of salt. This is one for both fans of blues and a great entry level blue for beginners. It is incredibly creamy and indulgent, one of our most decadent, pleasing cheeses.
We are big fans of this cheese, but it is not us only that think this. Montagnolo won the Supreme champion at the 2013 International Cheese Awards and has since gone on to win numerous other awards since.
Ribblesdale Mature Sheep - Ewe’s Milk, Pasteurised, Vegetarian Rennet
Made in small batches by Iona Hill and her team in Hawes, Wensleydale. The Ribblesdale Cheese Company are a stone’s throw from the large Wensleydale Creamery in Hawes, and they specialise in small scale cheese production, mostly of goat and ewe's milk cheeses. Hard, subtly sweet sheep's milk cheese from the Yorkshire Dales. Similar to an aged Pecorino or Manchego. The cheese is cloth bound and then aged for between 12 and 14 months. The cheeses are turned twice a week during maturation.
Waterloo - Cow’s Milk, Unpasteurised, Vegetarian Rennet
A semi-soft cheese made from unpasteurised Guernsey cow’s milk, Waterloo is packed with sweet flavours and is intensely rich and balanced with a salty finish that all good soft ripe brie’s should do. Waterloo has a rich creamy texture emanating from its naturally golden centre.
Waterloo is made using a washed curd method which dilutes the acidity to achieve a gentle, mellow flavour. This is achieved by replacing some of the whey with water during the make which gives the cheeses its distinctive sweet flavour. Its distinctive yellow colour is due to the natural carotene in the unpasteurised Guernsey milk which comes from a single herd of pedigree Guernsey cows.
**PRODUCT SHELF LIFE - with the majority of our cheeses we cut and wrap them fresh to send out, hard cheeses last 7 to 10 days, softs last 5 to 7 days from date of dispatch. Please bear this in mind when choosing your date of delivery, you can choose up to 3 months in advance. We advise you arrange delivery for as close to your planned date of consumption as possible**
We do stock a small number of individually pre-wrapped cheeses which come in with longer best before dates and make a great option to go into hampers that will not be gifted for a while - please email for advise on which cheeses work best in this instance.
