When Tipperary farmers Louis and Jane Grubb created Cashel Blue in the 1980s, there were very few soft blue cheeses being made on the British Isles and no blue cheese at all being made in Ireland. So, in their embrace of blue mould, the Grubbs metaphorically broke the mould. Theirs remains very much a family operation: Cashel Blue is made in a purpose-built dairy designed by Louis's brother Brian, and the couple's daughter Sarah and son-in-law Sergio now oversee the business. All of the milk used to make this richly creamy cheese (which is named after a nearby landmark, the Rock of Cashel) comes from within a 25km radius of the farm, including the Grubbs' own herd of pedigree Friesians.

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.
