Black Cow is a bloomy white mould cheese crafted from cow milk with the addition of cream, in a modern style. It is rolled in vine leaf ash prior to the growth of the white mould and the result is a spectacularly mottled black and white rind. When young the paste has a chalky texture which matures into a very creamy and soft cheese with a rich buttery yellow centre and has a striking line of black ash though the middle.
Crisp Japanese lagers or Stone & Wood Pacific Ale are an excellent pair, as is a clean fruity cider. The rind and middle ash layer makes this cheese a striking centerpiece of a cheese platter.
