Norfolk Tawny is a semi-hard cheese with a texture similar to Caerphilly but a taste all of its own. Maker Arthur Betts of Ferndale Cheeses washes this cheese in Stoatwobbler beer from nearby Beeston Brewery. This imparts a subtle ale flavour. It also helps to ripen the cheese and creates a distinctive texture to the rind. Arthur’s award-winning cheese is based on Taleggio from Italy and is made from local unpasteurised milk. Read more
This local East Anglian cheese sits very well with the medlar preserves of Eastgate Larder.

The Tawny is a great cheese that fits right in with the delicious East Anglian Cheese Selection that we ordered from Slate Cheese at the same time. Tawny could well become a regular favourite buy!
