St Helena

UP
C

St Helena is a brand new cheese from the makers of St Jude and St Cera. Based at Fen Farm nearby Bungay, Suffolk, they use the raw milk of the farm's Montebeliarde cows to create this supple washed rind cheese made to a St Nectaire recipe and aged on rye straw mats. Milky and sweet with just a hint of tangy farmyard at the finish, St Helena is an excellent melter and we love it alongside the crunchy sharpness of our Slate pickles. Read more

Tasting notes

Bright spots have been few and far between during 2020 so finishing the year with the launch of a new Suffolk cheese has brought great excitement to us here at Slate.  Clare caught up with maker Blake Bowden to learn more about how St. Helena is made and to find out how this Australian from Byron Bay comes to be making cheese on the Waveney fenlands of north Suffolk.  Read her blog here >
