Cornish Blue Cheese is a truly artisan hand made cheese, produced from milk supplied by the Stansfield’s family farm on the edge of Bodmin Moor near Liskeard in Cornwall.
As a handmade product, much of the skill in producing the Cheeses lies with a highly trained team of artisan cheese makers. Cornish Blue is a vegetarian, pasteurised, cows’ milk cheese which is dry salted by hand before being left to mature for between 12 and 14 weeks.
Designed to be eaten as a young cheese, Cornish Blue is a very different product from traditional English blue cheeses. Its flavour is mild and creamy, with a dense texture and buttery richness, instead of the ‘salty tang’ common of other traditional blue cheeses it has a gentle sweetness. Best enjoyed at room temperature, Cornish Blue Cheese is a great addition to any cheese board, simply enjoyed on crusty bread or a cracker with chutney a glass of port. It’s a versatile cheese and the sweet mild flavour is the perfect compliment to many recipes and sauces.
Cornish Blue Cheese has been internationally recognised by the many Awards including World Cheese Awards Champion Cheese in 2010 and Best Blue and English Cheese in 2007.
Keeping your Cheese
Truckles and whole cheeses can happily be stored for a few weeks after the purchase date, ideally in a cool cellar, pantry or even a garage! For best eating store between 10° – 14°C, in summer we are bound to advise you store the cheese in a refrigerator. We advise wrapping any cut cheese in waxed paper, as plastic film will create a soggy unhappy mess. We do recommend removing cheese from the fridge, and any wrapping, to allow the cheese the ‘breath’ for an hour or two before serving, this will allow the full flavour and character of the Cheese to come through, enjoy!
