Cheese

 

The Cambridge Cheese Co, All Saints Passage Cambridge http://www.cambridgecheese.com/

 

We asked them about local cheeses and they replied,

"As you may be aware, there is very little cheese and dairy procution in this area (Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire etc) as it’s a predominantly arable area of the country. That said, there are a few fairly local cheeses which I’ll list below. More details about each can be found on our website cambridgecheese.com

We do still sell the Cambridge Bleat and Lord Nelson - these are both aged in our cellars in Cambridge and the Lord Nelson remains completely exclusive to us. The goat’s milk that goes into them comes from Herefordshire. We also stock one cheese made in Cambridgeshire (St Ives to be exact) - the St Ivo, a ewe’s milk log. The milk for it comes from Bevistan dairy on the Bedfordhsire/Cambridgeshire border and we also sell the Bevistan Classic and Bevistan Smoked which come from said dairy in Bedfordshire.  Then we have the Baron Bigod, Truffle Baron Bigod, St Jude and St Cera which are all made in Bungay, Suffolk and the Norfolk White Lady, unsurprisingly made in Norfolk! We also sell the Cambridge Blue, the exact location of production is top secret but the cheese is exclusive to us!"

 

We tried two of these:

Cambridge Bleat is an unpasturised sheep's cheese from an artisan in Berkshire. It is matured to that point where it just starts to have a hint of runniness. With a brie-like appearance this has a delicious light creaminess and an excellent consistency.

 

Cambridge BAA

 

Lord Nelson is an unpasturised goats' cheese, made into a distinctive square pyramid shape, covered in ash and matured. It has a distinct but light goats cheese flavour, is very light in consistency and is absolutelt delicious. At around seven pounds for a cheese it is a bit of a luxury product, but one which will delight.

 

Lord Nelson
