Kennebec Highlands Caerphilly

Kennebec Highland Caerphilly is an alpine-style cheese made from pasteurised goat’s milk. At the end of the aging process lasting 4-6 months, the cheese boasts of a smooth, creamy but firm pate that has a lovely salty nuttiness with a tangy bite. If aged, dried and grated, Kennebec Highlands Caerphillyis a great replacement for parmesan cheese.

It tastes excellent on its own but also makes a good pairing with crackers and bread. The cheese is also added to pizza, pastas, and salads to jazz up their flavour.
