Coal River Farm is the home of some of the best handcrafted cheeses in Australia. Created in the Coal River Valley, these mouth-watering cheeses have the benefit of the rich agrarian land of the valley, not to mention cheesemakers who are passionate about creating incredible artisan products.
The Mild Meadow semi-hard cheese is the perfect balance of moisture and aridity. Its firm, but springy texture is achieved by compressing curds into a solid and draining them of any remaining whey. And the ageing process leaves a buttery, nutty, sweet and rich flavour profile that’s toothsomely delicious.
Of course, semi-hard cheeses are well-known for being fantastic for cooking, and Mild Meadow is no different. From the easy but stunningly edible toastie, to retro-fab fondue, you’ll want to get this beauty in your cooking repertoire.
This delicious Mild Meadow semi-hard cheese is youthfully aged with a firm, but springy texture and a flavour profile of rich, creamy hazelnuts and seared butter. Mild Meadow shows the perfect balance of moisture and aridity, with a complex, smooth finish.
Perfect for melting between two slices of crusty sourdough bread or serving on a Friday arvo cheese platter (with tangy fruits to accompany). Don’t forget the cheeky white wine as the weather warms up, too!
SEMI HARD FACT OF THE DAY...
Cheddar is one of the most popular semi-hard cheeses (because it’s super delicious!). But have you ever heard its creation story? The myth behind the creation of cheddar is that a milkmaid forgot about a pail of milk in a cave. And when she returned she discovered that it had solidified into the beautiful, golden, rich deliciousness that we know as cheddar today.
