Kentish Blue, Kingcott Dairy. Kentish Blue is a young cheese with a firm but moist texture. Flavoursome raw milk gives Kentish Blue a unique taste. Perfect served on its own or crumbled over salads, pasta or soups. 250g. approx.
Kelly's Canterbury Goat, Winterdale Cheesemakers. Award-winning naturally rinded cheddar style Kentish goat’s milk cheese aged for around three months to make a creamy, clean and fresh-tasting cheese with a slightly peppery finish. 200g approx.
Winterdale Shaw Smoked, Winterdale Cheesemakers. Cheddar style cheese. What makes Winterdale Shaw unique is that it is aged for 10 months in their own cave which has been dug deep into the chalky North Downs of Kent. This further develops the flavour which is deep & complex, with the rich, creaminess of the milk coming through. Great as an introduction to local artisan cheeses, which may be used in place of a cheddar as well as being a fantastic addition to any cheese board. 225g approx.
Chaucer's Camembert. Award-winning camembert-style British Friesian cow’s milk cheese matured for three weeks. Rich and creamy. Leave it out of the fridge on the day you eat it, and watch it open up and bloom like a flower. For years this was a steady seller in the French-speaking area of Belgium. 160g approx.
