Well known for embracing their ancient cheese-making traditions, pastoral customs and regional distinctiveness, England’s historic contributions to the world of cheese are unmistakable and undeniable. But when looking to the past, British cheese-makers also have a keen knack for seeing the future. Among the most popular cheeses sought for adding excitement to entertaining are England’s delicious, innovative, modern cheese flavor-blends, and Coombe Castle has led this thrilling flavor revolution since they were founded over 30 years ago.
When Coombe Castle decided to create a cheese that featured the alluring taste of cinnamon, complemented by the sweetness of apples and raisins, selecting the perfect base cheese was of utmost importance. Lancashire, the ancient cheddar-type, with its crumbly yet firm texture, full-bodied, rich, buttery character and clean, sharp, slightly-saltiness, provided the key to achieving the delectable mouth-feel and precise balance of flavors that make Creamy Cinnamon utterly addictive.
Unique and surprising, while at the same time warmly familiar, Coombe Castle’s Creamy Cinnamon cheese appeals to a wide range of new and old cheese lovers. Now that’s entertainment.
Application: Often used as a dessert cheese, Coombe Castle Creamy Cinnamon is also wonderful when melted on toast or bagels, baked into Danishes, crumbled in salads, melted on chicken or simply served on a cheese tray at any time of day. Creamy Cinnamon is made with microbial rennet, so it is also suitable for vegetarians.
Pairing: If served prior to dinner, German Riesling would make a great pairing. Served as a desert cheese, a sweet wine like Sauternes or a Hungarian Tokaji would be sublime.
