Is cheese seasonal?
Most of us are very aware of the seasonality of fruit and vegetables, and even meats such as venison and lamb. However, given global production, the truth is that in many of these products are now available all year round.
Cheese however isn’t always associated with seasonality, and yet it is a product that is arguably more seasonal than any. If you are only eating cheese at Christmas, you are missing out…big time.
Each season Edward, founder at cheesegeek and judge at the World Cheese Awards (think Oscars, but cheese) will host a taste-along of his favourite cheeses that season. He'll get geeky about what's tasting great and even what's not, the differences you might see...all from the comfort of your own sofa. Or bath. Or wherever you choose to snaffle your selection.
My seasonal favourites
As we enter early winter, here are a few of my favourites at this time of year:
Moreton: A very traditional winter cheese, aged for around 3-4 months and just lovely around this time of year.
Comte: Not a British cheese of course, but a world famous French cheese one that is just about perfect at this time of year. Best aged around 18-20mths, so the sweetspot for age and mid-summer milk falls right around Christmas time.
Baron Bigod: Catching the very last of the grass-fed cows milk before they come in for the winter, Baron Bigod is so perfectly rich, decadent and complex at this time of the year.
