When Stacey Hedges and Charlotte Spruce decided to create a second cheese alongside their Tunworth, they wanted it to be the same size and shape so that they could make use of the same tools.

Winslade, which is made by Stacey Hedges and Charlotte Spruce of Hampshire Cheeses, was developed as a sibling to what was previously their only cheese, Tunworth. Their plan was to create a cheese that would be the same size and shape as Tunworth, allowing them to make use of the same tools, but with a markedly different character. Winslade, a milder cheese than its predecessor, occupies the space between a Camembert style and a Vacherin Mont d'Or style. It is matured for eight weeks, allowing its dappled, pinkish rind to develop, while the spruce band provides a note of pine.

FAQs

How much cheese to buy?

As a general rule of thumb, we would recommend roughly between 100 and 150 grams per person for after dinner, and a bit more if cheese is the focus of the meal. If you are buying cheese to serve over a couple of days or as part of a buffet, it is advisable to buy a few larger pieces. This will both look better and keep better than many small bits. To help visualise weights, a good tip is to consider that a regular supermarket pat of butter weighs between 200 and 250 grams. If you are at all unsure please give us a call for some advice.

How should I store my cheese?

The best option is to keep your cheese wrapped in its paper within a box in the fridge. This will prevent the cheese from drying out and absorbing other flavours. Your cheese will arrive wrapped in waxed cheese paper, which achieves the best possible balance between maintaining humidity around the cheese and allowing it to breathe. We are happy to provide some free extra cheese paper, just search for "cheese paper" and add it to your basket. We don't recommend cling film or foil as it can cause the cheese to sweat which will negatively affect the flavour.
