Wedding Cheese cakes taking off at Country Cheeses
I would just like to say A BIG THANK YOU to all you cheese loving newly weds who allowed us to be part of your very special day. May you all have a most wonderful future with each other and of course keep eating proper cheese!
We have been getting so much response to our cheese wedding cakes, from the web site, I wanted to say a big 'well done' to a dear friend of ours who is a little gem! She worked for us quite a while and is a true real cheese lover and is sadly missed by us all including the cats! When she left we were told "remember to regularly update the site" Well C if you see this I am sure you will have that enigmatic smile on your face, as I take heed of wise words! Anyway all the hard work you did on cheese wedding cakes and cheese celebration cakes for birthdays and anniversaries deserves caring for just as our beautiful cheese does. :)
We wish anyone about to marry great happiness for the future.and how about starting off wedded bliss with the best cheese wedding cake in the universe from Country Cheeses.
Green dreams coming true at Country Cheeses!
THE CHEESE CAVE!
As of so many others, we are aware of the over dependancy on depleting energy resources, it's a huge issue. We have been pondering for a while how we could do more on this front and
how we can do more for our cheeses. Using Thermal Gradient (Geo) we can use the natural properties of the earth to keep a very stable cool temperature, and cheese friendly humidity all year round AND no nasty gasses used in refrigeration, no breakdowns and no unnecessary waste of precious resources. Completely carbon neutral, importantly the cheeses love it!
Apart from this very obvious environmental benefit the usage of natural cold storage rather than artificial refrigeration provides a very good environment for the cheeses to mature in.
We have been selling and maturing artisan cheese for 22 years and the cheeses we are producing now are the finest tasting examples ever! In fact, the 'Country Cheeses' specially aged Cornish Yarg won 'best cheese board cheese' at this years Devon county Show. Our cheese really does Rock!
Yes, We make it too. This is our Bliss cheese. And the Cheesetastically talented Mr Rainbow
Gary and Bex 'moulding' the curd.
STRONG CHEDDAR, STRONG CHEDDAR, AND STRONGER CHEDDAR
STRONG CHEDDAR AND SUPER STRENGTH DOUBLE GLOUCESTER
I would like to let all you 'cheese interwebbers' know we like the more characterful, challenging flavours, so all you folk who would like some zing in your cheese and cannot get a decent taste from cheese rated number 7 at the super market-- what does that mean anyway? I just dont know or understand why 'a number 7' cheese is going to be, well, Strong . You can't put a number on cheese to describe it's character, it would be like saying I am number 9, completely hopeless and meaningless. We have strong cheese which will satisfy all of you who not only want a real good zap, but also a big wholesome cheese flavour . Flavours with maybe the punch of Ali (if you are mature yourself) or the kick of a mule, if you've been on the receiving end of muffins hoof you will know what I mean, or maybe a clout from Lennox Lewis (a bit more recent) And of course Daniel Craig of James Bond fame, you would not like to get on the wrong side of him, because he is strong but in a meaningful way. These are not numbers, but in a funny way convey much more feeling as to what you can expect from our strong cheese. They are WELL STRONG AND FLAVOURSOME.
At the moment if Trad rinded is your preference our super aged Double Gloucester will leave you with a huge and satisfied smile.
Or on the other hand we are maturing a super unrinded farm made Alminstone cheddar at both 18 months and two years of age which can be guaranteed to give splendid results in the satisfaction department.
Sorry I have rabbitted on, come in our shops to taste or get us to send you some and you know what happens when you say cheese :) :)
All the best
