A bit of background info on our brand new cheese:
Bayley Blue cheese is made exclusively for Bayley & Sage at a small creamery called Hartington on a farm in the Derbyshire dales.
It is made from local, pasteurised cow’s milk by a small team of dedicated artisan cheesemakers led by Diana Alcock. It is produced in very small batches of 90l of milk which will result in just 5 2kg wheels.
The whole process of the cheese production is done by hand, no machinery is used. The curds are lovingly hand ladled into the moulds where they are allowed to drain naturally until set. They are then removed and allowed to mature unwrapped with the blue marbling developing from the inside first and then spreading to the outside of the cheese.
Depending on the size of the cheese, maturation takes 5 weeks for the 2kg wheel and 3 weeks for the baby Bayley Blues.
The resulting cheese is sublime, a soft blue cheese, rich and intensely creamy, sweet and yet savoury.
