Driftwood Goats Cheese
Driftwood cheese’s texture is mousse-like when young, but, as it develops, it becomes intensely rich and creamy. The flavour starts out light and delicate, but a fuller flavour soon emerges as the coat begins to break down the paste of the cheese underneath.
Pete Humphries has been making cheese in the UK since 1995, from Cheddar to Bath Soft. In 2005 he joined forces with local goat herder Roger Longman to set up his own dairy, White Lake Cheese.
Driftwood is one of his more recent creations. It is a delicious goats’ milk log. The cheese is rolled in ash, before the grey mottled wrinkly coat is encouraged to develop over the snow white interior.
