I’ve known about Cote Hill cheese for some time having tasted samples at the Lincolnshire Show each year.
It was fate that a box of Cote Hill cheese arrived a few days ahead of our wedding anniversary this year so hubby and I saved the tasting box for this special occasion. We were not disappointed!
Our favourite was the Cote Hill blue cheese, which had a wonderful balance between the rich creaminess of the milk and peppery bite from the P.Roquefortii mould. It matures from a slightly chalky centre to a creamy almost runny in texture.
Cote Hill Cheese is produced by the Davenport family, who for three generations have made cheese from their dairy herd on the Lincolnshire Wolds near Market Rasen. 🥛
Today husband and wife Mary and Joe Davenport make the cheese and son’s Ross and Michael milk the cows. 🐄
Their ethos is simple. Contented grazing cows, produce amazing quality milk, which with a lot of skill and expertise, creates great tasting cheese.😊
The morning milk at Cote Hill Farm is taken direct from the cows into the cheese rooms to be hand crafted into their award winning Cote Hill Cheeses.
By not pasteurising the milk, it allows the full complex flavour of the milk to be a part of the finished cheeses.
As it’s an artisan cheese, we felt that it’s best enjoyed on it’s own with some wine and crackers once the kids were in bed. So this time I’m not going to suggest a recipe to use the cheese in.🍷
Go on, take a look at the Cote Hill website https://www.cotehill.com/ and treat yourself to a tasting box. 👍
It’s a really grown up tasting cheese, one to purchase as a present, within a hamper or for a Friday night cheeseboard treat.😋
