Will Studd Selected Cheese Box
Will Studd is a world renowned cheese expert who has selected a range of cheeses based on their provenance, texture, aroma and flavour. We have put together a box of favourites for summer.
This rare Greek traditional feta is made with milk collected from small remote family dairies where their goats & sheep graze on the wild grass & herbs. After ageing for four months in seasoned birch barrels, it develops a rich, complex creamy flavour, slightly tangy & firm but still crumbly.
This hand stretched halloumi is made in Cyprus to a traditional recipe from sheep & goats milk which gives it both piquancy and milky flavours. Hand folded with mint leaves, it has a distinct Mediterranean flavour – salty with a hint of lemon. Ideally grilled or pan fried.
This French butter is made with cream from cows that graze on the green seaside meadows of Normandy. Churned in the old fashion way in a baratte and then hand moulded, this is the ‘Rolls Royce’ of butter – an essential item of any gourmands fridge.
This delicate, fluffy white mould is one of France’s classic triple crème cheeses. Luscious, creamy and buttery with a lightly sour note – best enjoyed with strawberries & Champagne.
From the Midi-Pyrenees region of France, this benchmark blue cheese is made using only raw ewes milk and aged in the natural microclimate of the Combalou caves. An intense blue with a slightly spicy finish – it is rich & buttery, salty & sweet. Known as the ‘King of French Cheese’ its name & method of production have been protected since 1411. Roquefort is the only unpasteurised soft cheese available in Australia.
La Couronne is a very special Comte from Marcel Petite, one of the most respected Affineurs in France. He hand selects young wheels of cheese matured in the Fort of Saint-Antoine to wear the prestigious red ‘crown’ of quality. Cheeses are selected for their quality & flavour, rather than simply on an age profile.
