Brother Michael Cheese

A rind-washed organic cows' milk cheese made by The High Weald Dairy at Horsted Keynes in Mid Sussex, using pasteurised milk from their own herd.

It's made by washing a 6 week old Saint Giles (q.v.) in brine and natural cultures several times a week for 4 weeks.

The process creates an orange-pink colour on the cheeses' surface and a distinctive pungent aroma. The texture is soft and creamy, and the favour is not as strong as the aroma would imply. For more information see (
