It has a striking looking rind and has tangy, aromatic and spicy qualities. The cheese is made in a Stilton Dairy to precise specifications to create a uniquely smooth texture. It also, consequently, has the strong taste you’d expect from a blue, but much creamier than Stilton. Semi-soft blue cheese made in Oxford. It has a springy soft creamy texture, with spicy, tangy and aromatic blue flavours. This is a fantastic British alternative to Dolcelatte or Fourme d’Ambert. Serving Oxford Blue Cheese Break into chunks and stir into cooked pasta with a little olive oil and some Pannacetta for a quick supper. Alternatively, serve with celery and grapes or on an unsalted cracker as a dessert cheese. If serving on a cheeseboard, remove the cheese from the fridge at least 20 minutes before serving. This will allow it to come to room temperature and to develop its full texture and flavour. Production  The cheese is prepared using unpasteurised cow’s milk and is aged 14 to 16 weeks. In addition, its rind is sticky and wet in texture. Above all, the cheese is soft, creamy and moist, has aromatic, tangy and spicy qualities, and has traces of white wine and chocolate in its flavour. Similarly, it has been described as a “French-style English blue” that can be used “as an alternative” to Stilton cheese”, and therefore as similar to Dolcelatte and St Agur cheeses, with a less strong flavour than Roquefort or Stilton. History of Oxford Blue Robert Pouget saw a gap in the English blue cheese market for a semi-soft English blue which could rival imports such as Dolcelatte or Fourme d’Ambert. As a result, developed the cheese in 1994 for the Oxford Cheese Company. After that, production has taken place at a new, small dairy in Burford, Oxfordshire, which was developed in a converted barn.  At the Burford site in 2013, Pouget encountered an initial problem of having nowhere to dispose of waste whey. This is a byproduct of the cheese’s production, which was at around 50,000 litres each month. The problem was solved by the introduction of an anaerobic digester to process the whey. After that, in April 2013, around five tonnes of cheese were produced monthly. In addition, in 2015 the cheese was distributed by the Oxford Cheese Company. Awards Oxford Blue won gold at the 2001 and 2003 British Cheese Awards.
Westcombe Mature Cheddar 250g
Westcombe Mature Cheddar 250g
£5.79
A firm, smooth cheese with a deep tangy flavour, and long notes of citrus, hazelnut, and caramel. A simply outstanding example of one of the Westcountry's most famous foodie creations, the mighty cheddar! Cheese has been made at Westcombe Dairy Farm since 1890, and Tom Calver is passionate about preserving that cheesemaking tradition. Westcombe Cheddar, a firm, smooth cheese with a deep tangy flavour, and long notes of citrus, hazelnut and caramel. Westcombe Dairy describe this as a 'five-mile Cheddar', as the rich flavour lingers on the palate – you’re still tasting it five miles down the road!  Tom Calver, a trained chef, took over the business in 2008 from his father Richard.   What’s the story?  Records show that unpasteurised cheese was being made at Westcombe Farm as early as 1890, by a reputably formidable lady named Edith Cannon, whose cheddar was apparently legendary. Cheddar has been made continuously at the farm ever since, and although it’s always been consistently high quality, over the past few decades Richard and Tom have devoted themselves to a return to the traditional cheesemaking of Edith’s day and focused on making a classic Somerset cheddar with unpasteurised milk based on her original, prize-winning recipe. Returning to the farm after working in prestigious London restaurants and the famous Neal’s Yard Dairy, chef Tom set about mastering each step of the cheesemaking process in order to perfect every detail, moving away from mechanisation and focusing on making the most of the local Westcombe terroir.   Somerset is famous for cheddar precisely because of its terroir, the combination of lush pastures, plentiful spring water, rolling hills and cool mists encouraging the cows to produce wonderfully rich milk and allowing the slow maturation of cheeses (11-18 months, in the case of Westcombe Cheddar) so that they can develop complexity and character. Only three cheeses have been honoured with the official Artisan Somerset Cheddar designation from Slow Food – and Westcombe Dairy Cheddar is one of them.  Why we love it…  We couldn’t call ourselves local food experts and not celebrate one of Somerset’s most famous foodie creations, the mighty cheddar. The rich, tangy flavour of Westcombe Dairy’s outstanding, multi-award-winning cheddar, developed over months of slow maturation, is the taste of the West Country.
