May Cheese Subscription – Autumn selection
Each month we choose a selection of cheeses with a common theme that are eating particularly well. Our May Cheese Subscription Box celebrates the arrival of Autumn.
Autumn brings cooler mornings, the changing colours of the leaves and the arrival of the local mushroom season. These cheeses are perfectly matched with silky soft flavourful mushrooms, or as part of an autumn cheese board, with your favourite seasonal vegetables and glass of something special.
RACLETTE – L’Artisan
South-western Region, Victoria
French cheesemaker Matthieu Megard has developed his own unique Australian version of Raclette, made with organic milk from the Smith family in Timboon. The texture is soft and supple and it has a nutty, slightly pungent flavour with a smokey finish and a reddish rind which is slightly sticky to touch. Best enjoyed grilled or melted.
TALEGGIO – Mauri Formaggi
Mauri Taleggio DOP is a classic Italian washed rind cheese with a creamy texture. Washed and brushed several times over a month, and matured in stacked wooden pine boxes, the cheese develops a thin bloom flecked with grey yeasts and blue mould on its distinctive orange rind.
BOSCHETTO AL TARTUFO – Il Forteto
Il Forteto Boschetto al Tartufo is a fresh, young pecorino-style cheese made with a combination of rich, creamy ewes milk and full-cream cows milk. It is infused with prized fresh white truffles from the surrounding Tuscan countryside. Dense and moist in texture, this is a deliciously aromatic cheese.
LE CONQUERANT UNSALTED BUTTER – Selected by Will Studd
Cows milk, Normandy, France
Le Conquerant French cultured butter is made with cream from cows that graze on the green seaside meadows of Normandy. It has a richer and more lactic flavour than commercially produced counterparts. It adds another dimension to pan fried mushrooms or your regular breakfast toast.
