Cornish cheese company wins award

Cornish Country Larder's soft cheese has picked up several awards

A Cornish cheese company is beating the French at their own game by producing award winning soft cheeses including brie, camembert and goats cheese.

Cornish Country Larder near Newquay has just picked up several gold awards and a trophy at a national cheese making competition.

They say business is so good they have plans to expand.

Cornish Country Larder's soft cheese dairy is situated in the hamlet of Trevarrian between Padstow and Newquay.

Although fraught with challenges, their Duchy organic Brie, has recently won the trophy for 'best soft white cheese' in the UK.

The distinctive flavour comes from the ripening process - in the olden days this would have been done in a 'cheese cave', where it was wet and cold.

Nowadays it is all done in a temperature controlled room.

The cheeses are made with organic Cornish milk and have a smooth buttery texture and with a mild creamy flavour.
