At last, as promised! Here is a picture of our Gold award from Nantwich 2012. This is for our Matured Natural Rinded Goat cheese.
This is based on our Original Goat recipe (which is vegetarian) which when made, we let mature in vac packs for about 6-9 months. We then take it out of their packs and wrap it in cloth bandages and let it mature for a further 4 – 6 months.
This results in a very hard, dense cheese with lots of delicate flavours. It doesn’t get ‘goaty’ at all, it turns into a mellow, aged cheese with a thin natural rind.
It is quite a high maintenance cheese because we rub the rind and turn it about twice a week, so quite labour intensive.
You can buy this cheese from us or from our wholesalers Bradford based Delifresh (tel: 01274 743737) who liken it to a Goat Parmesan.
We submitted six cheeses into the Nantwich Cheese show which was our first ever entry to the show and three won awards, which we are very pleased about.
