Udder Delights Brie

As the name suggests cream is added to the milk to increase the amount of butterfat before continuing to form the curds into a luscious Brie style cheese. Due to the increased level of cream there is a balanced acidity to offset the increased decadent buttery texture.

HaVe OMG

Our name for this cheese speaks for itself, the usual reaction on first taste.  This sumptuous triple cream white mould cheese is made by a similar process to a camembert, but with the addition of a small proportion of cream to the cheese-milk to enrich the texture and flavor.  The rind is white when young, maturing to a straw colour when fully ripened.

HaVe Ash Blonde

This cheese, although made initially by a similar process to a Camembert, is made with a fine layer of vegetable ash beneath the white-mould rind. In addition to giving a pleasant surface texture and resistance to the tooth, this slows the proteolytic activity of the moulds, enabling the cheese to ripen more from within, giving a somewhat milder flavour.

Goat's Brie

Our Goats Brie and Camembert are luscious, surface ripened goat cheeses with a delicate texture and subtle flavour. They are perfect for a cheese platter accompanied by figs or pears. Feel the sides of the cheese before cutting it open. If it is very soft, then carefully cut a lid out of the top to create a self-contained bowl of oozy paste that looks beautiful and will keep the platter neat.
