“Cheddaring the Cheese” is a labour intensive process that is vital to making cheddar by removing much of the whey. The more whey that can be removed, the firmer the cheese will be. While cheddar is certainly not the easiest of cheeses to make, there's something special about a true aged cheddar and Maffra Cheese are a real Australian showcase of this! This cheese is Australia's answer to the English and we can't get enough!

In this pack you will get:

  • Maffra Aged Cheddar Cow's Milk
  • Maffra Wensleydale Cow's Milk
  • Red Leicester Cow's Milk
  • Wensleydale + Cranberry Cow's Milk
  • Tasting & Pairing Notes

Further Details...

Who is Maffra Cheese Co.?

In the heart of the lush dairying country of Gippsland, you will find Maffra Cheese Co., owned and run by the diminutive dynamo, Ferial Zekiman. Unlike the majority of Australian cheesemakers, Ferial decided to place her focus primarily on cheddar, often more a labour of love than a commercial business decision. Ferial has utilised her background in chemistry to create one of Australia’s most internationally recognised cheeses.

What are the cheeses*?

This pack includes four incredible cheddar cheeses, each naturally aged to the perfect texture.

HARD: Maffra Aged Cheddar
Milk   |  Vegetarian

This delicious cheese is matured between 12 and 18 months when it develops a distinctive smooth flavour, finishing off with slightly acidic and salty notes. The inside of the cheese is a rich yellow with a creamy yet firm texture. As it ages, the cheddar will become crumbly - just how we like it!

__ 

HARD: Maffra Wensleydale
Milk   |  Vegetarian

Made from a traditional Wensleydale recipe that can be traced back to the 11th century, Maffra have truly outdone themselves here. While still young in the world of hard cheeses, it has a crumbly texture that is moist. It's often a lemony flavour and has underlying creaminess on the palate - it’s a showstopper.

__

HARD: Red Leicester
Milk   |  Vegetarian

Red turns heads, right? Well this cheese sure does - it’s an international and national award winner! Maffra Red Leicester has a tight texture and smooth, buttery, mellow flavour. It takes its colour from annatto, a natural orange-red condiment (betacarotene) from the seeds of the South American Achiote tree. The red colour was traditionally used to signify the creamy milk that it was made from. 

__

HARD: Wensleydale + Cranberry
Milk   |  Vegetarian

Made with the centuries-old recipe of Wensleydale, but with a small sprinkle of cranberries carefully mixed through for extra texture and sweet fruit flavours. This one is for the sweet tooth and is a perfect dessert cheese accompanied by dessert wine, of course - nothing else is needed! 

* Cheeses may change without notice if they become unavailable. In this case, we will substitute with another great cheese. 

Blessed are the cheesemakers.

Go Maffra!

Can't stand soft cheeses, and don't even start me on the stinky ones (shudder). The Maffra pack, though, is outstanding. Great variety and taste. More hard cheese packs, please.

Fantastic pack for hard cheese lovers

We've previously enjoyed a couple of soft cheese selections and some full wheels of soft cheeses from Cheese Therapy , but we've been hanging out for a hard cheese pack for a while now. This Maffra selection is a delight for lovers of semi-hard to hard cheeses. It was a close-run thing to pick a family favourite but since I'm writing the review (ha-ha!) I'll say the Aged Cheddar was best
