Hand-crafted during the first burst of summer, Elderflower Clothbound Cheese from Devon-based cheesemaker, Quicke’s is a seasonal cheese like no other. Combining early summer’s grass-fed cow’s milk with the elder tree’s botanical bloom, this 6-month matured cheese is a joyous celebration of the land at this special time of year, from the lush pastures to the hedgerows that weave their way around Home Farm.
A truly unique cheese, born from a desire to make the most of nature’s larder, Elderflower Clothbound Cheese owes much to the ageless hedgerows that the Quicke family has maintained since the sixteenth century. Working with local foragers to greedily gather the spoils from this ancient plant, Quicke’s then blends the elderflower into the cheesemaking process to achieve a fresh, buttery cheese with delicate floral notes.
Steeped in tradition while breaking the mould, Quicke’s Elderflower Clothbound Cheese can bring a taste of the British summer to the table, whatever the time of year. Rich and aromatic, the cheese finds a perfect pair in a cool glass of Prosecco, better still enjoyed during a hazy sun-drenched picnic along with charcuterie and pickles.
Quicke’s Elderflower Clothbound Cheese is available to purchase from www.quickes.co.uk (200g £5.30, 500g £12.00), as well as from many independent retailers across the UK.
