Our Nantwich Gold Award for Matured Natural Rinded Goat cheese
At last, as promised! Here is a picture of our Gold award from Nantwich 2012. This is for our Matured Natural Rinded Goat cheese.
Nantwich 2012 Gold Award Winner: Natural Rinded Mature Goat
This is based on our Original Goat recipe (which is vegetarian) which when made, we let mature in vac packs for about 6-9 months. We then take it out of their packs and wrap it in cloth bandages and let it mature for a further 4 – 6 months.
This results in a very hard, dense cheese with lots of delicate flavours. It doesn’t get ‘goaty’ at all, it turns into a mellow, aged cheese with a thin natural rind.
It is quite a high maintenance cheese because we rub the rind and turn it about twice a week, so quite labour intensive.
You can buy this cheese from us or from our wholesalers Bradford based Delifresh (tel: 01274 743737) who liken it to a Goat Parmesan.
We submitted six cheeses into the Nantwich Cheese show which was our first ever entry to the show and three won awards, which we are very pleased about.
