Country of Origin - England
Paxton & Whitfield’s Essentially English showcases some of Britain's best and most exciting cheeses, as well as a perfectly balanced cheese board ready for your table.
The collection contains:
Montgomery Cheddar 500g (Unpasteurised, Cows' Milk, Traditional Rennet)- Cheesemaking at the Montgomery's farm in North Cadbury, near Yeovil, is one of the very few remaining examples of how Cheddar was made in the 19th century. You should find the cheese to be full flavoured, and at 18 months of age or thereabouts, to have developed a depth and complexity of flavour which has few rivals.
Stichelton 500g (Unpasteurised, Cows' Milk, Traditional Rennet)- Joe Schneider makes this cheese on the impressive Welbeck Estate in Nottinghamshire to a recipe similar to Stilton, although it cannot use this name due to being made with unpasteurised milk. The flavour is immensely buttery with a nutty mellowness. This is due to the high quality of the milk which comes from an organic farm on the same estate.
Aldwych Goat 200g (Thermised, Goats' Milk, Vegetarian Rennet)- A firm textured goats' milk log with a characterful flavour. Perfect for cooking as well as enjoying as part of a cheese board. Made by Pete Humphries of Whitelake Cheese in Somerset.
St Eadburgha 360g (Pasteurised, Cows' Milk, Traditional Rennet)- Made at Gorsehill Abbey Farm, just outside Broadway and on the edge of the Vale of Evesham. The cheese is named after the Saint of the old church in Broadway. St Eadburgha has an appealing crinkly white rind and is mild and firm when young but gradually develops more flavour and a creamier texture as it ages. The flavour is delightfully complex and robust yet with great finesse and delicacy.
Wensleydale Special Reserve 500g (Pasteurised, Cows' Milk, Vegetarian Rennet)- This Wensleydale is the Special Reserve from the Hawes Creamery in the Yorkshire Dales. It has a fresh, clean, full flavour and a honeyed aftertaste.
