Good Evening Cheesy1’s,
I hope that you all have had a relaxing and cheese filled festive season and now with the the remnants fading into the distant it is time to jump head first into 2018; and what a year it is going to be! I can’t reveal everything just yet but it starts with a website which is currently being constructed and will be coming soon. The second thing is you may have noticed is that the website address has changed. I’m now using cheesy1.blog to get to the page and when the website launches all will become clear. I’m having to do a bit of internet cleaning/ streamlining to ensure it all ticks like clockwork. I hope that all the hard-work pays off and that you like the end result; I’m sure you will. It is taking effort to finesse but I cannot wait to reveal everything to you soon! In the mean time I will leave you with my favourite Christmas cheese that I enjoyed.
This cheese was simply delicious! It’s a cross between Vacherin & Camembert, you can tell this by the cheese being encircled in spruce bark. Winslade is then matured to the point when ripe that it is super gooey & indulgent. It’s centre paste is almost liquid but rich with mouth filling intensity. Winslade was developed over the last two years and creates a delicious duo with Tunworth.
They have been very clever when creating Winslade because is not washed like Vacherin, but uses similar moulds, bacteria & techniques to a washed rind cheese. It is matured for eight weeks in a high ammonia environment, which creates its pinky hue and pillow rind. Its taste also won Judges over because Winslade was awarded Best New Cheese at 2013 The British Cheese Awards.

I look forward to sharing all the exciting new things coming soon with you and keep watching for the launch!
