Women Cheese Makers Box

Women Cheese Makers Box

£37.00

Throughout history, women have played a crucial role in cheese-making. Traditional cheese-making has generally been regarded as ‘women’s work’ - while the men were busy with farm labour, women were usually close to the farmhouse, tending the vegetable garden and smaller farm stock, and indoors rearing the children, as well as looking after the household and making cheese. This fits with the rhythm of traditional cheesemaking; milk takes time to curdle and needs attention for short periods of time, spread throughout the day. So in between the cheesemaking steps, women could do other chores, going back to the milk as and when necessary. By the end of the day the curds would be placed into moulds or made into small cheeses, the cream would be made into butter and so on.

Winslade

Winslade made by Stacey & Charlotte. They are unreal cheese makers, they also make Tunworth

Winslade is then matured it is fully ripe, rich, soft and gooey

The perfect pairing is crusty baguette, fruits like peaches also pecans and hazelnuts

Cote Hill Blue

Cote hill blue, similar in style to a soft textured blue brie, creamy with a definite sharpness and rich, complex flavours. Britain’s first unpasteurised soft blue-brie.

Mary the cheese maker has been making it since 2005, from her Friesian cows.

We love this cheese with a rosé or a light fruity red like a pinot noir.

 

Corra Linn

Corra Linn Reminiscent of the finest Manchego, with a touch of Scotland. Using their own sheep’s unpasteurised milk.

Selina Cairns, started cheese making in the 1980’s

Its a ewe’s milk cheese along the lines of Manchego the unique vegetal flavours with a slight sweet, hazelnutty flavour with earthy, heathery undertones.

Perfect with Spanish red wines, from medium-bodied to giant reds.

Unreal with 70% dark chocolate too.
