With the lazy, hazy summer days and warm, light evenings what better way to celebrate the season than with a selection of deliciously ripe, oozy, scrumptious soft cheeses. Have you ever wondered how these delicious cheeses are made? To achieve the wonderful soft texture the cheese needs to retain a high percentage of the whey and to achieve this the curds must be handled extremely gently! Only the weight of the curd is used to press out excess whey, the surface of the cheese is then enveloped in a white, velvety "penicillium candidum" coat from where the mushrromy aroma and taste originate. But don't take our word for it!! Below are three fabulous examples of some of our deliciously ripe soft cheeses, including one of the best known, worldwide, Brie de Meaux, the inspiration behind many of the varieties produced. The best way to enjoy soft cheese ........ at room temperature with a cold glass of somethink to drink!
