About Suffolk Gold Cheese
Suffolk Gold cheese is a semi hard cheese, not unlike Cheddar, though a little softer, which is made with vegetarian rennet and pasturised cows milk.
The milk is pasturised on site in Creeting St Mary in Suffolk, England, on the family run farm, by Jason and Katherine Salisbury since 2004, who sell their cheeses under the trade name Suffolk Farmhouse Cheeses, as this embodies the cheeses traditional handmade methods and recipes.
The milk used for Suffolk Gold is taken from the farm’s own pedigree herd of award winning Guernsey cows, whom Jason is particularly fond of, knowing each of them by name and character. Due to their superb care and feed quality the milk produced from Jason’s cows is a golden, lusciously creamy milk, used to make cheeses, cream, butter and yogurt.
The cheese is currently used by Fairfield’s Farm Crisps, produced in Colchester, Essex as an ingredient in their potato crisps.
Suffolk Gold does have a very creamy, buttery flavour thanks to the high quality milk used in production. The paste of the cheese has a distinguishable twang to it and expresses the rich golden colour of the cheese deliciously.
How to Enjoy
Suffolk Gold works wonderfully on traditional oatcakes, or with slices of apple. It also makes a great accompaniment to many wines, and makes superb frittata, as it has fantastic melting properties too. You can really be adventurous with this one in the kitchen, and Suffolk Gold and bacon quiche is highly recommended.
