SUSSEX CHEESES

 

This is the list of local cheeses which we used to stock: please be aware that i) not all the local cheeses are included and ii) this list is not being maintained after December 2015 - please use it only as an initial reference guide and not an authoritative statement.

BURWASH ROSE - a small, whole, rind-washed beauty, made at Stonegate – raw, vegetarian, cow: sold as a whole small cheese.

BUTTERCUP - Raw Jersey milk from Firle, made at Stonegate with a lighter taste and texture than a cheddar, and with appealing colour & flavour.

CHABIS - A classic recipe: a fresh raw goats milk cheese delicious a few days to a month old, ideal for grilling at any stage.

CHARLTON, – something special in the pasteurised cheddar line from the organic Dairy Shorthorn herd on the Goodwood Estate: firm, creamy, tasty and well worth a try.

TREMAINS ORGANIC – from Sussex High Weald – organic, pasteurised, cow, full-flavoured, smooth, mellow cheddar type – winning prizes in 2007

GODSTONE CHEESES - We recommend all of the late and much lamented James Aldridge's cheeses: some are new, others are traditional British territorial cheeses given James' maturing expertise to transform them to succulent rivals to the best available from France. His partner continues the tradition to the highest standards. Please seek out CELTIC PROMISE (Supreme Champion – British Cheese Awards 2005), CHERRYWOOD, ISLE OF AVALON, PATRICE, SAVAL, TORNEGUS or perhaps one of the other productions using raw cows, ewes or goats milk.

OTHER DAIRY PRODUCTS – South Downs butter, from the makers of Sussex Charmer, Organic fruit smoothies and yoghurts from Court Lodge Farm, Wartling

Rennet of vegetable origin is used in all the SUSSEX cheeses listed (except PLAW HATCH MATURE) and many others: this makes them eminently suitable for vegetarians. Ewe, goat and buffalo milk cheeses are often recommended for dietary or health reasons as they seem less likely to provoke allergic reactions. Some customers report that vegetarian cheeses taken in moderation do not cause migraine attacks. It may be worth a try!
