This cheese does not use rennet and is therefore suitable for vegetarians

Cornish Camembert


Many, perhaps most, of the cheeses featured by The Cheese Shed can truly be called 'artisan' cheeses: they're made by committed, expert small-scale makers.

This doesn't come into the same bracket, as it's made by a large-ish concern.  But Cornish Country Larder do make some nice cheeses - Cornish Brie and St Endellion among them - so we're happy to add their latest, the 200g Cornish Camembert.

Cornish Country Larder

Based at Trevarrian in North Cornwall, Cornish Country Larder was set up in 1996 by John Gaylard, a local goat farmer. He, along with a couple of other family members started making a hard goats cheese called Village Green, but soon progressed into soft cheese, using both cows and goats milk. The site only uses Cornish cows' milk, and goats' milk from the West Country where they have three dedicated farmers.

Cornish Country Larder has been very successful and it's fair to say that this isn't really an 'artisan' business in the sense of small-scale production, though CCL would say that the cheese is traditionally made and in fact still very much hand made; ripening is also done in the traditonal way. In January 2011 CCL was bought by Milk Link but still retains family involvement on the cheese making side.
