“My favourite melting cheese is a ripe Tunworth”, says Nigel Slater.
The multi award-winning Tunworth is a soft cheese that has the thinnest possible rind, an undulating surface, and a profoundly fruity tang, enough to convince any Frenchman that this was made in France. The cheese’s maker, Stacey Hedges, uses a very traditional recipe that not very many Camembert makers use as it is so difficult to make. The cheesemaking process includes a slow overnight acidification after the curds have been carefully hand-ladled into moulds.
