Maffra cloth bound Cheddar – 150g
Region of origin: Gippsland, Victoria
Texture: Moist, slightly crumbly
This cloth bound cheddar is matured for up to two years in the true English manner. The recipe that qualifies a cheese to call itself Cheddar involves scalding cow’s milk curd twice followed by a cheddaring or milling process, it is this double scalding and subsequent aging that gives Cheddar its taut texture and unique flavour. The texture is moist, and slightly crumbly. Each cheese is ripened under cloth to allow a thin rind to form and carefully matured to its optimal age.
