Adventures in Cheese: Gorwydd Caerphilly

This is a delicious creamy, slightly citrusy, Caerphilly cheese, which was originally made on their parents' Welsh farm by two brothers: Maughan and Todd Trethowan, in the Teifi Valley, but since 2014 has been made near Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset, by Maughan and his wife Kim in their new dairy.

An organic raw-milk (unpasteurised), hand-worked cloth-bound cheese with a natural rind, it is normally matured for around 3-4 months. 

Gorwydd Caerphilly cheese  has won several awards, including Best British Cheese at  the World Cheese Awards 2021 held in Spain on 3rd November. 

It's a cheese that goes incredibly well with savoury crackers, tomatoes, olives etc. or just enjoy it on its own!
