MFC ' Cork Classics' Box
Some of the best cheese in Ireland hails from County Cork.
And we have a few cheeses in this weeks box that are pretty old-school when it comes to Irish cheese. These three cheeses are not disimilar in style but are all fantastic in their own right.
Durrus Óg - Jeffa Gill began making cheese in 1979 down in Coomkeen, Cork. This semi-soft washed rind cheese is super bouncy and creamy.
Milleens - One of Ireland's oldest farmhouse cheeses. First made in 1976 by Veronica and Norman Steele, now overseen by their son Quinlan. It's mushroomy and slightly smokey in flavour with a firm and pale yellow rind.
Gubbeen - Tom and Giana Ferguson have lived at Gubbeen for six generations, as dairy farmers, and they began making cheese in the 1970s. Gubbeen is a semi-soft washed rind cheese, made in Schull.
Also included is a Gubbeen Salami, and a fresh loaf of Bara Bakehouse sourdough!
