“Autumn Comfort Cheeses”
“While away an evening with seasonal British cheeses from our partners, cheesegeek, specially curated by expert Ned Palmer. As the nights draw in, it’s time for comfort food – cheeses with warm colours, rich textures and complex flavours. The lush pastures of late summer make luxuriant cheeses that are now fully ripe, so it was easy to choose this selection, which showcases some of the best artisan cheeses that Britain and Ireland have to offer”
In the article, Ned Palmer spotlights Spenwood, made by Anne Wigmore and her team in Riseley, Berkshire; Stithians, made by Catherine Mead and her team at Lynher Dairies in Cornwall; Cashel Blue, made by Geurt Van Den Dikkenberg and the Grubb Family in Tipperary, Ireland; Appleby’s Cheshire, made by the Appleby Family on the Abbey Farm in Shropshire and Hampshire Cheese Company’s Tunworth, made by Stacey, Charlotte and the Hampshire Cheese Company team.
Ned writes, “The gnarlier the cheese looks, the more interesting its flavour. Tunworth, with its wrinkled orange-flecked rind and oozing golden centre does not disappoint – the luxuriant texture delivers a complex palate of cooked cabbage, cream and pepper, with a spicy finish. Try it with champagne and feel the bubbles combine with the cheese in a sparkling mousse. Raymond Blanc said that Tunworth is the best camembert in the world – he’s not allowed back into France until he takes it back.”
