Cornish Kern /100g
Crowned Supreme Champion at the World Cheese Awards 2017, Kern is a cheese that was destined to be famous from the outset. A hard farmhouse cheese, it has a rich buttery taste and caramel notes and a complexity that brings wave after wave of interest. Firm to the cut and slightly flaky in the middle, its texture is as important as its taste.
Originally derived from a Gouda style cheese, Kern is made with the superbly rich Cornish milk from the Lynher Dairy herd of Ayrshires, adding nutty Alpine starter cultures to create a close texture.
Kern (which means ’round’ in Cornish) has received global attention and praise and just like Yarg, every single wheel still comes from Lynher’s small rural dairy near Truro.
