Top Tier: ROND DU CHER
Milk: goat | Type: soft, bloomy rind | Origin: France
The soils of the Cher valley produce a sweet hay that influences the flavours of this small, flat, round goat’s milk cheese. This cheese is traditionally made using raw milk and is called Selle-sur-Cher. This version is made from pasteurised milk and matured in the traditional manner under a coat of sel noir (salted ash). A creamy, white paste, with subtle sweetness and notes of nuts. It is best enjoyed at about 4 weeks old, if kept longer it can become strong and salty.
Third Tier: BRILLAT SAVARIN
Milk: cow | Type: soft, bloomy rind | Origin: France
This triple cream white mould was created in the 1930’s by Henri Androuët and named after the renowned 18th Century food writer, Brillat-Savarin who claimed ‘A meal without some cheese is like a beautiful woman with only one eye’. The cheese is mild in flavour when young but as it matures it will develop rich, complex flavours that meld beautifully together. The white velvety mould encases a soft and creamy interior. During maturation the rind may develop small patches of orange mould.
Bottom Tier: HOLY GOAT BRIDGE’S WELL
Milk: goat | Type: soft, bloomy rind | Origin: Australia
Brigid’s Well is a goats cheese, lightly ashed and surfaced ripened with geotrichum, which give this cheese it’s distinct wrinkly exterior. Runny inside the rind, curdy and smooth in the centre, this cheese is delicate, nutty with an amazing depth of flavour.
