Evenlode

A vivid and pungent washed-rind cheese from King Stone Dairy, with a sticky rind giving way to a buttery breakdown and a firm, curdy centre. Flavours are bright and yoghurty at the core, and become more pungent with hints of peanut and even bacon underneath the dusky orange rind.

Since late 2019, 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 feed on pastures planted with plentiful clover and herbal leys, lending their milk an aromatic richness. Evenlode is the only one of David's cheeses to be made with mesophilic starters, which lend it a more pronounced acidic flavour and a bright and chalky core when it's young.

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.
