A mature cheddar blended with mustard adn ale to yield a moist, tangy
Y-Fenni takes its name from the Welsh town
in which it is made, and a town which is more often referred to as Abergavenny
by the English. It is one of the few cheeses made on a larger scale that
we sell at The Teddington Cheese.
Each cheese is made from mature cheddar
cheese blended with whole-grain mustard and Welsh ale. Pasteurised cows'
milk is used. The mixture is then pressed firmly into moulds and then
coated in a pale yellow wax. It has a full tangy mustard flavour, moist
texture, pale-yellow colouring speckled with the mustard grains.
Y-Fenni is often enjoyed as part of a
ploughman's lunch. Its consistency makes it excellent when melted, and
it can be served on toast or even on a steak.
Each cheese measures 30cm in diameter,
10cm deep and weighs 3kg. Smaller cheeses are also made.
