Haddon Gold and Berkswell Cheeses

While roaming around Soho's new farmer's market, I picked up cheeses from two stalls. The top one is Haddon Gold from Crudges Cheese. The description reads: 'Beautifully smooth & creamy, with a bit of bite, Haddon Gold is made with raw Organic Jersey milk from Hutton Grange Farm, Great Rollright, deep in the rolling Oxfordshire countryside.' A remarked that this cheese was incredibly buttery, and I have to agree - best eaten in small quantities, but lovely.

The other cheese is Berkswell from Neal's Yard Dairy, which is a hard sheep's milk cheese. Here's the description: 'Rich, sweet, fruity and nutty. Sometimes with a fruity acidity that reminds us of pineapples, sometimes creamy and biscuity, but the flavours are always, long, deep and mouth-filling. The texture can be slightly grainy and depending on age varies from quite firm to moist and relatively soft.' This was tangy and nutty, and my favorite cheese of the day.
