Product of the Month: Fielding Cottage Goats Cheese

photo 3New to our cheese counter this month are two goats cheeses from Norfolk based Fielding Cottage which are rather delicious. Norfolk Mardler is a waxed eight week matured hard goat cheese, which melts very well and is also great as a substitute for feta in a Greek salad says our resident cheese guru Peter.

Wensum White is a soft goats cheese, (Fielding Cottage’s newest cheese and they say it’s a brie style like goats cheese). Like the Mardler it is delicious with ripe tomatoes or a light red wine like Pinot Noir. Both are pasteurised.
