Cheese Board

Cheese Board

Since before cheese was invented man liked cheese. If it could serve as blood and travel through veins it would, that’s how good cheese wants to be.

The Hillary Step cheese board is rather good. Choose Hard, Soft and Blue Cheeses or combine Charcuterie sliced meats for extra fun.

All soured from Hickson & Black’s, Chorlton (881 2001)

This week’s treat of cheese’s from 18th May are:

Aarenwasser

(Semi-soft, unpasteurised cow’s milk, traditional rennet)

A semi-soft Fontina style Swiss cheese that is washed in the clear glacial waters from the River Aare. Deep in flavour and peppered with small holes, and a long lasting almost sweet aftertaste. It has a nuttiness present in many Swiss cheeses.

Garstang Blue

(Blue, pasteurised cow’s milk, vegetarian rennet)

The cheese follows the traditional Lancashire cheese making process but
the curd is sprayed with penicillium roqueforti blue mould before being
salted, lightly pressed, pierced and matured.
Garstang blue is mild and creamy with a supple texture and herbal, milky
undertones.

Gorwydd Caerphilly

(Hard, unpasteurised cow’s milk, vegetarian rennet)

This is a mature Caerphilly made to a traditional recipe using raw milk.
The ingredients combined with working the curd by hand, keep the cheese
true to the origins of traditional Caerphilly. The cheese is cellar
matured on the farm for two months and exhibits a fresh lemony taste
with a creamy texture to the outer (known as the “breakdown”) and a
firmer but moist inner.
