Blue Clouds Sussex Cheese 250g
Blue Clouds is a great introduction to blue cheese. A mild creamy blue with a slight salty tang. It has a doughy aroma and a good length of flavour. The edible rind adds a distinct earthy note.
Blue Clouds is the baby of Chris Heyes (a multiple award winning cheesemaker). Recently established, Balcombe Dairy is based at Lodgelands Farm on the beautiful Balcombe Estate in Sussex. The cheese is handmade from a single herd milk in small batches (which is a gentler heating process on the milk). Being located so close to the milking parlour means the milk from the Norwegian Red-Holstein cows travels only ten yards into the cheese making pod where every stage is completed by hand. The milk is gently pasteurised and the cheese is suitable for vegetarians. The cheese is matured for around 8 weeks then wrapped in a perforated foil to help the blue cheese breathe.
