Cheese Awards

MOORLAND'S AMATEUR CHEESE AWARDS 2013

*RESULTS*

 

                                                            

This year there were not enough entries in each category to award a Gold, Silver and Bronze medal, so Chris Ashby, distinguished judge,  awarded 1st, 2nd and 3rd places overall, with Supreme Cheese.

 

3rd Place
Hard cheese –yellow waxed. Sticky curd, pasty in mouth, low flavour level. The cheese exhibits characteristics of being made with homogenised milk, it would be much better made with non-homogenised milk, or a blend of skimmed and double cream (12 parts skim to 1 part double cream)
Very well done to Kenneth Gilbert.

 

2nd Place
White mould ripened cheese. Well broken down, looks very good, but is too salty for perfection.
Very well done to Tracie Baines for cheese made with local raw Jersey milk.

 

1st Place    
Fresh cheese. Clean, fresh, very slight goat flavour notes.  A very nice cheese.
Congratulations Dr Peter Randle for his fresh cheese, made using goat’s and Jersey cow’s milk.

 

                             

Supreme Cheese.
Fresh Cheese.  Very well done Peter. Please put together a list of cheese making equipment to the value of £150. Please note, there is no time limit, so take your time!


A suitably cheesy medal will be sent out to all the winners. An enormous thank you to everyone for taking part.
