Barkham Blue has a very distinctive appearance. Made in an ammonite shaped round, it is covered in an attractive natural mould-ripened rustic rind. The deep yellow moist interior is spread with dark blue-green veins. It has a rich blue taste, smooth buttery texture with a melt in the mouth flavour, without the harshness associated with some blue cheese.
Barkham Blue is hand made by the artisan cheese makers Sandy and Andy Rose of Two Hoots – a small family business located in the village of Barkham on the Hampshire/Berkshire border, which make handmade cheeses in the traditional way using the pasteurised milk from Channel Island breeds of cows
