Welcome to 2014 from Somerdale
We’ve all been there (are there)
- you’ve had the gluttony and excess of Christmas and New Year and now you’re
on your January health kick, right? And well done you for doing that, we all feel
horribly guilty and unfit after Christmas and it’s good to get back into a
regular pattern of healthy eating and exercise.
But that doesn’t mean you have to
cut out everything and punish yourself! We at Somerdale believe that cheese can
be part of your diet so long as it’s in moderation, and as we now have so many
fabulous cheeses out in Australia, why not make it one of your New Year’s
Resolutions to try something new!
Whether you’re crazy about
cheddar, salivating over Stilton, craving some crumbly Wenlseydale or fanatic
about fruit cheeses, Somerdale has something for every cheese lover in
Australia. We’ve set out a few of our
favourites below – go on, give them a try!
Crazy about Cheddar: Barbers
1833 Vintage Reserve
This has to be one of the best cheddar's
in the world (and we’re not biased!) Made by the 6th generation
Barber family on the family farm in Ditcheat, Somerset, not far from the
village of Cheddar itself, this 24 month matured West Country Farmhouse cheddar
has a creamy texture, a fabulous bite to it and a flavour that really develops
on your pallet. They’ve been making it since 1833 so they know how cheddar is
supposed to taste!
Salivating over Stilton: Long
Clawson Blue Stilton
So many of our customers tell us
definitively that they HATE blue cheese. And then they try Blue Stilton, the
King of English cheeses. With a
wonderfully creamy texture, Blue Stilton is not as overpowering as other
blues, yet has that distinctive blue vein and somewhat decadent taste to it!
Something Spicy: Somerdale
Cheddar with Chilli and Lime
This hit Australian shores
mid-2013 and has had resounding success.
A creamy cheddar blended with fiery chilli and zesty lime, this cheese
really hits the spot and leaves customers talking! It’s a bit different, has a
great flavour to it and looks great on a cheeseboard.
Happy New Cheese to you all!
