Graceburn - Marinated Soft Cheese

250g

A luscious, creamy soft cheese, marinated in herb-infused oil.
 

Graceburn is a superbly soft and rich cheese, based on a Persian Feta recipe, and made by David Holton and Tim Jarvis at Blackwoods Cheese Company in Kent.

David and Tim have based their dairy on Common Work Organic Farm, which has a herd of Friesian Holsteins, cross-bred with Swedish Red and Montbeliarde cattle.This milk provides the perfect balance of butter fat and proteins, which makes it particularly suitable for creating this super-creamy, fresh cheese.

Initially, David and Tim soak the fresh cheeses in brine. Unlike traditional Feta, which is preserved in larger blocks, Graceburn is broken by hand into smaller pieces, and steeped in a blend of extra virgin olive oil and rapeseed oil, infused with thyme, garlic, bay and pepper.

The rich and creamy cows’ milk makes Graceburn softer and more melt-in-the-mouth than traditional Feta.

About The Fine Cheese Co.

The Fine Cheese Co. is a maturer and retailer of artisan British cheeses, most of which are unpasteurised and all of which are traditionally made.

They are based in historic Bath, founded by the Romans and famous for its beautiful Georgian architecture - alongside Venice the only World Heritage city in Europe. Bath is set in the heart of the English West Country, the home of the most famous of British cheeses: Cheddar.

They have been cheese specialists for thirty years, and from the start we have nurtured and supported the cream of British cheese-makers. The Fine Cheese Co. has been owned and run from the beginning by Ann-Marie Dyas. A judge at both the British and World Cheese Awards, Ann-Marie was committed to the survival of traditional cheese-making, and to introducing farmhouse cheeses to as wide a public as possible.

However, their love of cheese extends beyond these shores. They also import artisan cheeses from France, Italy, Spain and Holland. They are a strong supporter of the independent retailer and none of The Fine Cheese Co. ranges of products will ever be sold in a British supermarket.
