Celebrate Burns Night with some wonderful Scottish Cheese, to be enjoyed with a wee dram and a lengthy recital of Robert Burns.
Caboc: Said to be Scotland’s ‘oldest cheese, Caboc is a rich double cream cheese, which is allowed to age naturally without the addition of rennet. The cheese is shaped into small logs and rolled in toasted pinhead oatmeal. It is pale primrose yellow with a very buttery and smooth texture. The texture is slightly thicker than clotted cream, comparable to cream cheeses such as a mascarpone. Caboc has a mild, sour tang with all the all buttery creaminess and a nutty, chewy edge. 110g – £4.65
Blue Murder: Previously named after a New Order song, Blue Monday cheese is now Blue Murder cheese. Made in Tain by the Highland Cheese company for ex-Blur bass player Alex James and British food champion Juliet Harbut, both cheese experts, this is a bold, strongly flavoured cheese made with cows milk from the Highlands. £26.95/kg
