BRUNY ISLAND CHEESE
Raw Milk c2
milk: cow type: hard, natural rind, raw milk Raw milk C 2 is the sort of cheese found throughout the mountains of France & northern Italy. A classic cooked curd cheese made in the traditional large wheels. C2 matures for 6-12 months, during which time it develops a sweet aroma & mildly nutty flavour. The rind is wiped every week to encourage the surface bacteria that provide this cheese much of its robust integrity.
milk: cow type: soft, white mould in the central plateau of France there are a number of cheeses that are all named after the local Saints. Like our Saint, they are all surface ripened, soft oozy cheeses with a light bloom on the rind – not a thick carpet of single strain white mould found on more commercial cheeses. This cheese can be eaten younger, when the inside is still firm and the flavour more delicate or wait until the curd breaks down completely and the flavour gets more pungent.
milk: cow type: soft, pinot washed in vine leaves OEN (from the word oenology) is a true labour of love; a washed-rind, cow’s milk cheese, washed in Pinot Noir before being wrapped in vine leaves to be carefully matured. The vine leaves protect the cheese and create a moist surface which encourages the flavour development. When mature, OEN’s rind becomes pungent and the texture becomes soft and fudgey.
Unpasteurised Cider Washed Rind
This has been a really exciting collaboration with our mates at Willie Smiths. After several experimental batches where we trialled different ciders to wash our cheese in, we settled on a cider made from traditional Yarlington Mill cider apples that had not been pasteurised, so it still contained loads of wild yeasts. I can’t wait for you guys to try this cheese, its funky and oozy with a lovely bitter sweet finish… Do yourself a favour and try it alongside Willie Smiths superb cider.
