Wedmore is a cheese that really captures the flavours of the lush Somerset countryside. Balancing the zesty dairy flavours of Caerphilly with the delicate oniony sweetness of chives, this cheese is a real summer delight. Perfect for picnics, packed lunches and especially good grilled on toast or over vegetable gratins.
Because of the size of the rounds, the smoke doesn’t permeate too deeply into the cheese – leaving the zesty and oniony flavours intact – but it adds a lovely bonfire-like fragrance to the softer area under the rind which is absolutely delicious.
Made on a farm in Wedmore by Chris Duckett this cheese begins its life as a Cearphilly and is then traditionally oak smoked in Godstone in Surrey. Smoked Wedmore is a well-travelled cheese and has a fine band of chopped chives running through its centre.
