A fresh spreadable sheep cheese. Very creamy with a slight tangy finish on the palate. Great to serve with smoked salmon or wrap in a strong prosciutto. AVAILABILITY: Sept – Mar WINE TO MATCH: Sav Blanc/Pinot Noir
Fresh sheeps milk cheese mostly available in it’s youngest, freshest form. Tart and creamy at the young stages, maturing to an even more tart and fruity product as it ripens. Very thin and smooth natural rind cheese with a pastey, milky texture.
How should I use this cheese?
Excellent served on a cheese platter as it is visually very interesting. It is also wonderful served sliced and drizzled with unfiltered extra virgin olive oil, ripe tomatoes, fresh basil and ground black pepper and a dash of nutmeg. Spoil yourself by stacking a crusty Italian bread with the fresh cheese, sliced prosciutto, roasted peppers, anchovies and extra virgin olive oil.
We post all internet orders every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Any orders received after Tuesday will be sent the following week. We DO NOT send on Thursdays and Fridays as we do not want to risk the cheese sitting at a post office over the weekend getting hot.
