Cornish KernCornwall, England Pasteurised Cow's Milk
Cornish Kern is a hard cow's milk cheese inspired by Gouda, with added Alpine style starter cultures which encourage the sweet, bright and nutty flavours to come through. Kern is the Cornish word meaning "round".
Made by Catherine Mead and Dane Hopkins at Lynher Dairies near Truro, West Cornwall. The cheese is covered with an edible food safe black paint, which tends to develop a white bloom, giving the cheese a soft grey appearance.
The texture is hard and waxy and the flavour rich, sweet, nutty.
Our cheeses are lovingly matured for up to two years by Neal's Yard Dairy in London.
