David Jowett's approach to making this washed rind cheese was inspired by the famous Vacherin Mont d'Or, made in the Jura mountains in eastern France.

Since late 2019, former Neal's Yard Dairy intern David Jowett has been making his French-inspired washed rind cheeses on Manor Farm in the Cotswold village of Chedworth, Gloucestershire. The farm's mixed herd of traditional British breeds, including the Dairy Shorthorn, feed on pastures planted with plentiful clover and herbal leys, lending their milk an aromatic richness. Rollright is regularly washed in brine for three weeks, resulting in the thin orangey-coloured rind that surrounds the cheese's soft, buttery paste. The spruce band with which it is wrapped adds a note of pine to the cheese as well as holding it together as it ages.

FAQs

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.

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.

Rollright cheese is absolutely delicious.cook it in the oven.
Unwrap the the paper make sure the box is secured, place it on a tray on which you have placed a piece of oven paper after thirty minutes it should be gooey, place it on a warm plate with either thin toast or thin cheese biscuits enjoy it whilst it is hot.
It’s much begtter than Camembert.
