Woodside Alpine

Woodside Alpine is cow's milk version of Kennebec Highland Caerphilly cheese. It is made from pasteurised milk with a taste subtler and delicate than the goat cheese. At the end of the aging process lasting 10-14 months, the cheese boasts of a smooth, creamy but firm pate with a touch of nutty flavour. As it ages, Woodside hardens up and can be used as 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 crumbled or grated onto pizza, pastas, and salads to jazz up their flavour.
