Golden Cross is a log-shaped goat’s milk cheese that can be eaten fresh or matured. The cheese is lightly charcoaled before maturation, when a velvety white penicillium mould develops on the surface. When young, the cheese has a fine, firm silky texture and fresh, citrus flavour. As it matures the cheese becomes denser and creamier and develops stronger, more complex flavours.
Ingredients: Raw goat's milk, salt, vegetarian rennet, charcoal.
Golden Cross is a family owned business run by Kevin and Alison Blunt at Greenacres Farm in Holmes Hill, East Sussex. Together with Matthew, one of their three sons, they have produced soft mould ripened goats and sheep milk cheeses since 1989..
