Thorvald - Curado Sheeps Cheese
There are more sheep than people in New Zealand and that means great sheep’s milk cheese! The folks at Thorvald Cheese make some of the best. This Curado won a bronze medal at the 2019 Champions of Cheese awards. It’s a slightly sweet, nutty, Manchego style cheese that has great well developed flavour – not strong, just a little piquant. Try with a medium bodied Spanish Rioja or mild brown ale.
This month we’ve curated a cheese box with different types of milk: sheep, buffalo, goat and cow. We really enjoy tasting the difference between them all and we hope you do too. Stay tuned for next month’s box - we’ll be including Deer milk cheese in the mix!
