MORE ABOUT THE CHEESE LAYERS:
Top Tier: SHARPHAM CAMEMBERT. Handcrafted in South Devon by us a Sharpham Dairy. Developed by Greg and Peter to celebrate 40 years of cheese making at Sharpham, our Camembert combines Normand methods with South Devon terroir to create its own character. Sharpham Camembert is a moist, soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow’s milk cheese, it is typically made in individual rounds which makes it perfect for baking. Camembert becomes creamy, oozing, and perfect for dipping when heated. Sharpham Camembert is a soft mould-ripened cheese with a smooth creamy body and slight grassy notes. It develops a complex earthiness with age.
Fourth Tier: SHARPHAM SAVOUR Handcrafted in South Devon by us a Sharpham Dairy. Sharpham Savour is based on a young French Savoie-style cheese. It was made to celebrate 50 years of the area being designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s made from a mixture of 75% cows milk and 25% goats milk which produces a sweet, mellow flavour. The curds are washed before moulding creating a smooth texture. On maturing when young it has a soft and pliable texture, maturing to almost alpine style with age. Sharpham Savour is a washed curd cheese with a smooth texture. It has a sweet creaminess which develops a slight tang with age.
Third Tier: SHARPHAM ELMHIRST. Handcrafted in South Devon by us a Sharpham Dairy. Sharpham Elmhirst is a based on the style of a Normandy ‘Vignotte’, being a mould ripened triple cream cheese made from pasteurised cow’s milk. It’s named after the famous Elmhirst family who inspired so much agricultural innovation in South Devon. The rich milk produces an initial cream with double cream added to create opulence in a rind!
Second Tier: QUICKE’S MATURE CHEDDAR. Handcrafted in Mid Devon, using milk from their own Quicke’s herd of grass-fed cows, clothbound and naturally matured, typically for 6 months. Creamy and buttery with hints of brothy to grassy to caramel notes. With a natural rind, the flavour changes from the rind to the centre of the cheese.
Base Tier: DEVON BLIUE. Handcrafted in South Devon less than 2 miles away from Sharpham Dairy. Made by Ben Harris at Ticklemore Dairy. Devon Blue is unpressed, French-style, blue cheese, wrapped in foil to stop a rind developing. It is sold by us at four months old when it is flinty, minerally, and light with a subtle blue taste.
