Meet The maker: 27 July
JULIE CHEYNEY FROM WHITE WOOD DAIRY
A group of our cheesemongers recently had the opportunity to visit Julie at White Wood Dairy in east Suffolk. We’re delighted that now Julie will be visiting our Marylebone shop on the afternoon of Saturday 27 July to sample her St. Jude and White Wood Cows Curd.
Julie learnt to milk cows when she was 16 years old and her cheese-making experience began in 2005 when she partnered by with her friend Stacey Hedges and created the first Tunworth. She has since started her own production using milk from the Montebeliarde herd of Jonny Crickmore’s farm and created St. Jude: the flavours of the pasture are intact giving the cheese an earthy richness becoming more evident as it ages. This little cheese is a lot like Saint Marcellin from the Rhone Alpes, but with a sappy, savoury Suffolk sensibility.
