P, Curly Red
With its pale, ivory creamy centre, Curly is an unctuous sweet lactic cheese balanced by it's wrinkly, aromatic rind. The distinctive coloured rind is created by regular hand washing in brine. This encourages the proliferation of surface bacteria resulting in a complex flavour and aroma. The young cheese is lively with a lemony tang, giving way to more earthy and vegetal flavours with hints of honey as the cheese develops.
