Norfolk Dapple (C/RAW)
Why ‘Dapple’? Traditionally linen wrapped to age for between 4 – 6 months the rind underneath forms the eponymous ‘dapple’. They suggest cheddar style but we feel it has a delightfully fresh, more crumbly feel with a gentle acidity and a fruity finish with great length with different flavour profiles presenting themselves as you savour the cheese. We’re glad to have found it!
Gubbeen is from County Cork in Ireland and it is particularly good at the moment! One of three notable washed rinds from this area but this is a favourite on the l’affinage cheese board, The characteristic pink washed rind offers an umami/ savoury twist, some say meaty, others smoky. Regardless, what Gubbeen really brings is a delicious supple buttery hued cheese with subtle hints of fried onion and marmite.
Cashel Blue (C)
Our second Irish cheese this month hails from County Tipperary and is Ireland’s original farmhouse blue, 40 years ago Louis & Jane Grubb set out to make a cheese that truly reflected the quality of their grass fed milk. Coming to you at around 3-4 months of age Cashel Blue is characterful but not strong with a creamy moist paste. Gold Winner at the 2021 International Cheese Awards.
