Cave Aged Truckle Cheddar Cheese, 1.8kg (Serves 36 people)
In their quest to celebrate traditional cheese making techniques, Ford Farm have revived the ancient art of maturing cheese in caves, a practice that dates back as far as the 16th century.
A constant temperature combined with a high humidity, makes for ideal storage conditions and allows the cheese to develop an earthy characteristic and distinctive nutty flavour that is associated with Cave Aged cheeses.
The Truckle Cheese is a firm, close textured cheese originally larded and cloth wrapped during maturation within the caves, with the outer surface showing rind.
With a clean, typical but nutty flavour, this cheese is wonderful with Old English Ales, or if wine is preferred, Cabernet Sauvignon.
