Sheffield Cheesemaster – Winslade 250g (whole cheese)
We are so missing making our Little Mester but this is a fantastic alternative. Made by Stacey and Charlotte in Hampshire and using expertise from cheese guru Ivan Larcher they created a new Vacherin/Camembert cross.
Encircled in spruce, it takes on a piney note and has a similar rind to washed rind cheeses. In fact, Winslade is not washed, but uses similar moulds and bacteria to a washed rind cheese, and is matured for eight weeks a high ammonia environment, which creates its pinky hue and dappled rind.
