Ogleshield

UP
C

Pliable Ogleshield is the West Country equivalent to Swiss Raclette. This supple cheese melts magnificently for sumptuous Alpine style raclette dinners with potatoes and gherkins – or the perfect cheese toastie! Made from rich Jersey milk by Jamie Montgomery in Somerset (maker of Montgomery's Cheddar), it is washed in brine every three days to develop its springy consistency, pink rind and slightly pungent aroma. The name of this cheese honours the contribution of former Neals Yard Dairy maturer Bill Oglethorpe to its development, and the cheese’s shield shape.

Ogleshield is the British version of Raclette. It's a very special cheese - unique in colour, texture and taste.
