We are thrilled to announce the addition of a new Daylesford organic cheese, Penyston Brie, made by hand in our artisan creamery.
Penyston is a mild and creamy soft cheese which has been in development for three years by our Head Cheesemaker, Peter Kindel, to ensure it was absolutely perfect. Made using the organic milk from our grass pastured Gloucester and Friesian cattle, Penyston is mould-ripened for at least five weeks to create a rich, buttery flavour which becomes earthy and slightly mushroomy with age.
Peter’s favourite way to eat Daylesford’s newest cheese is with a crusty baguette or slice of our organic sourdough and a cold glass of Daylesford Prosecco. We also think it is delicious paired with our organic fruit bread or rye, spelt and raisin crispbreads. Warmed or baked, it makes a delicious starter and is the perfect cheese for sandwiches.
Produced all year round, Penyston’s flavour is at its most interesting in the colder months, when our cattle’s rich winter milk gives the cheese a higher fat content and ultra-buttery taste and texture.
A great first cheese for children, it is also a welcome addition to any cheeseboard, delicious served with fruit and sure to become a family favourite. Keep an eye on our recipe page for serving suggestions and recipe ideas.
Penyston is available to taste and purchase in our Farmshops and for home delivery from our online shop and from our Personal Shopping service, telephone 0800 083 1233.
