Our cheese of the week is the delectably creamy + subtly smoky Beechwood Smoked Cheddar Cheese by the Snowdonia Cheese Company.
Who Makes This Smoked Cheddar Cheese?
The Snowdonia Cheese Company are the creators of this beechwood smoked cheddar cheese. Based in beautiful rural North Wales & established in 2001, the company has grown to be one of the best cheese producers in the entire country, if not the world. It produces plenty of award winning cheese and is most famous for its Little Black Bomber Mature Cheddar. They have expanded their range over the years, which now includes 10 truckle cheeses of different flavours.
Taste and Flavour
This cheddar is still beautifully mature and strong flavoured, yet the smokiness is subtle and not overpowering. The cheeses are slowly smoked over sustainably sourced Beechwood, rather than chemically smoked, which is how the more subtle smoky flavour is achieved. We really believe that you can taste the difference between this hand crafted smoked cheese and the commercially produced chemically smoked cheeses. The flavour is without doubt, far superior.
This cheese is still creamy though and totally addictive with its mellow depth + warmth. This was recognised with a Gold Medal at the Global Cheese Awards.
Enjoy Smoked Cheddar Cheese With….
This cheddar is very versatile in the kitchen. Add this smoked cheddar cheese to a ploughman’s lunch to give a twist on the traditional recipe. Grate it into pasta bakes or on top of soups and tomato based stews. This will certainly liven up a green salad too!
Don’t forget that these truckles look stunning on any cheeseboard and the packaging makes them great cheese gifts too.
