Supplied by Andy Swinscoe, The Courtyard Dairy – Cheesemonger of the Year – World Cheese Awards.
The Courtyard Dairy stocks and supplies a carefully chosen range of unusual and exquisite farmhouse cheeses, selected direct from individual farms, and then only if the cheese is superior in quality and taste. No compromises.
For the best depth of flavour, these specialist cheeses are still made by hand on the farm, with most farmers using their own high-quality unpasteurised milk from a single herd of animals. Many of these farmers have less than 70 cows (the smallest producer has just 7 goats!).
The Courtyard Dairy’s cheeses are among the finest to be found anywhere in the world.
Devon Blue – Pasturised Cow’s milk
Devon Blue was one of the first modern British blue cheeses, created by Robin Congdon in the 1970s. Unpressed, French-style, it is sold by The Courtyard Dairy at four months’ old, when it is flinty, minerally and light with a subtle blue taste.
