Visitors to our shops are awed by the veritable mountain range of different cheeses on our counters. Amongst them there is always a cluster of orangey-pink rinded cheeses, a category known as the “washed rinds”. But why do some cheeses get washed, and how does this process affect the finished cheese?
Here Matt from our cheese maturing team to tells us more about the techniques or levers that are used in our maturing rooms in Bermondsey to affect the finished flavours and quality of mature washed rind cheese.
In this article soft cheese maturer Emi takes us on a tour of our five soft cheese maturation rooms. Beyond the threshold sit racks bearing dozens of squat cheeses, in various shades and shapes. What do their rinds tell us about how the cheese is developing?
