Quickes Vintage cheddar – 100g
The Quicke family of Devon has been in dairy on the same farm just north of Exeter for over 450 years. All their cheddar is matured slowly on wooden shelves (this one for around 24 months), wrapped in muslin cloth, giving a real depth and complexity of flavour. The old fashioned rind that develops using this method is the hallmark of a well-matured traditional cheddar. Unusually, the cheese is made with pasteurised milk and vegetarian rennet. Using vegetarian rennet in a cheese of this age can often result in a bitter edge. Mary Quicke tries to avoid this by selecting from 18 month old cheddars, the ones she feels will mature well for a further 6 months.
Made with milk.
