Tongola Bloom 200g
Tongola make incredible Goat cheese from their herd of Swiss Toggenburg goats on their farm in Bream Creek, southern Tasmania. We've been selling their cheese at our local Hobart Store for years and it has quite a following. We thought it was about time that we included it in a Christmas offer.
The cheese has a delicate bloomy rind (hence the name). It’s similar to a camembert, is much cleaner in flavour. The mould and different cultures produce a unique and mild flavour, which alters as it matures. Like most cheeses it is best served at room temperature so pull it out an hour before serving.
Coal River Farm Blue 130g
We've got a blue for you! This one is from our friends at Coal River Farm, and it's one of my personal favourites. Zingy, and creamy. Try it on a cracker with some spiced peaches. This is a blue cheese that is fantastically mild (it won't hit you over the head with that big 'blue' flavour) it's got a smooth and creamy texture and it is subtle and tangy.
La Cantara Fluffy Cow 160g
We recently discovered some of the amazing cheeses from this Venezualan-style cheesery located Northern Tassie. This dairy farm is owned by a lovely husband and wife team, who are both vets from Venezuala, who fell head over heels in love with Tassie.
The Fluffy cow is a traditional French-style white mould cheese. It is the result of a combination of French bloomy rind cheese recipes. It exhibits a rustic rind, covering a rich and creamy cheese with a firm middle. It delivers nicely balanced mushroomy, nutty, buttery, and garlicky notes.
Red Cow Organic Swiss Tilsit 140g
A classic semi hard alpine cheese, from some fabulous local cheesemakers located near the Tarkine. Red Cow Organics Takone Tilsit produces a caramel flavour which is creamy and richly defined by lush pastoral notes. Each wheel is hand smeared with culture to develop its golden yellow rind and earthy aromas. Aged between 2 and 3 months. This fabulous Tilsit is made to be melted – perfect for creating the ultimate cheese toastie at home, or enjoying a mild cheese in the mix in a big Tassie Cheese platter!
