Emmental-style Mayfield is recognisable by its 'eyes', naturally occurring oval holes not typically seen in a British cheese. Its sweet nuttiness is also reminiscent of Alpine flavours. Winner of a 'Super Gold' at the World Cheese Awards, Mayfield is matured for six months. In colour and taste it expresses seasonal variation in the milk changing from golden and buttery in winter to lighter and creamier in summer as the cows graze outside. It melts well so can be used in a fondue recipe or for a delicious cauliflower cheese.
The tangy crunch of our Slate pickles makes them a fantastic accompaniment for smooth and almondy Mayfield.
