Brunswick Blue is a result of experimenting with how we mature Beenleigh Blue from a few weeks of age.

We were curious to see the expression of Beenleigh Blue's milk and method as a natural-rinded cheese, matured more similarly to many of the other cheeses that we sell. We first sold Brunswick Blue in late 2016. Since then the cheese has been through several incarnations and continues to evolve still.

We mature Brunswick Blue on shelves in our maturing rooms as opposed to keeping it wrapped and in the fridge as we do the Beenleigh Blue. The difference in temperature makes a dramatic difference to the character of the cheeses. During its time with us, a natural rind forms, the cheese loses weight and the enzymes which predominate lead to a more intense, biscuity and salty flavour.

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.
