Cornish Yarg is a nettle wrapped semi hard cheese made from grass rich Cornish milk. Tangy under its natural rind and slightly crumbly in the core, it consistently wins top international awards.
The nettle leaves, which attract naturally occurring moulds, are brushed onto the cheese in concentric circles. As the cheese matures, the edible wrap imparts a delicate, mushroomy taste and develops its unique bloomy white appearance.
Once matured, nettled Yarg is fresh, lemony and creamy under its beautiful rind, with an irresistible crumble in the core.
In the spring we also offer Wild Garlic Yarg
These verdant beauties impart a gentle garlicky flavour and give the cheese a slightly firmer texture. It’s hard to believe, but Wild Garlic Yarg is made to exactly the same recipe as our traditional nettle wrapped Yarg. The striking difference in taste and texture is all down to the leaves.
