Evercreech - South Somerset
Made by the lovely people at Westcombe Dairy, this smaller 2kg smoked cheese is based on their famous cheddar is smoked over cherrywood for 12 hours inside a traditional red telephone box – yes, a telephone box! It is one of those cheeses that can deepen the flavour of many cooked dishes or eaten on its own will give a lovely more-ish tangy, smoky and woody flavour. It has a characteristically russet hue. This would be a lovely intriguing addition to a cheeseboard – it may divide opinion but with your politician’s hat on you’ll be fine. After all who wouldn’t want to eat a cheese smoked in such a British way?
