Mrs. Quicke's Vintage Cheddar
Mary Quicke oversees cheesemaking on her farm in Devon, England. Under her tutelage, this earthy, pleasantly sharp cheddar is made from the raw milk of Friesian-Ayrshire cows. These heritage cows graze over 10 months a year on lush pastures and produce raw milk with equally lush flavor. Smoother and milder than many of its fellow Brits, Mrs. Quicke’s is a model of cheddared, ladylike delicacy. Murray’s selects wheels with only the moistest, creamiest pastes and for the lemony, vegetal notes that sparkle, especially with crisp apples and a spot of chutney. Forgo the spot of tea and take your cheddar melted in the middle of a rustic grilled cheese.
