A mild, hard crumbly cheese; salty and moist with a lemony tang.
A proper Caerphilly is creamy at the edges and moist and crumbly in the middle. Famously salty, sour and moist, the cheese was originally sold in the Welsh market town of Caerphilly until production died out in World War 2. Fortunately it was revived by artisan cheesemakers so you can enjoy its lovely fresh lemoniness today.
What with? Perfect in salads, Caerphilly best enjoyed with a glass of chilled white wine. Our Pouilly-Fumé is a popular pairing. The saltiness sets off the sweetness of roasted red peppers beautifully; just crumble some over before serving.
