La Fromagerie, Golden Cross
Kevin and Alison Blunt produce a dense, fudgy goat's cheese in the style of the French Sainte-Maure de Touraine. The flavours are lighter and less acidic than the French version, nevertheless this is a very enjoyable cheese.
At peak ripeness – once the blooms on the rind have several times been tamped and regrown – the flavours become intensely nutty, reaching notes almost reminiscent of peanut butter.
