How many Cornish Cheeses can you name? How many Cornish Cheeses have you Tasted?Are you starting to plan what to eat when you're next away on holiday? And looking for some local speciality that's easy and tasty? But not wanting to spend hours cooking? Nor wanting to go out to eat?
Then why not try some of these delicious Cornish Cheeses, all of which will add a true 'Taste Of Cornwall' to any meal or snack, whether you're staying in a cottage on a self-catering holiday in Cornwall, or at home - particulary as most of these Cornish cheeses are also available online, or a local farmshop or supermarket.
DAVIDSTOW CHEDDAR - probably one of the best known, available in most supermarkets.
.'Made with a Cornish point of view'!
Did you also know that Cornish Yarg was named after a farmer on Bodmin Moor whose name was Alan Gray, which is Yarg spelt backwards?
Plus, did you also know that Cornish Yarg is wrapped in Stinging Nettles - as the leaves attract naturally occurring moulds, which give an edible nettle rind that imparts a delicate, mushroomy taste to the cheese once matured?
Plus it can also be made using Wild Garlic, known as Wild Garlic Yarg, where the Wild Garlic leaves give a gentle garlicky flavour, and their moisture gives the cheese a slightly firm texture.
