Ardrahan Farmhouse Cheese is one of the best around and has got the awards to prove it.
I have come across it regularly enough. Bought some recently from the Pig’s Back in the English Market and enjoyed it. It is a semi-soft cheese with a complex delicate flavour which most people like.
It is hand-made in Kanturk – North Cork seems to be quite a place for making farmhouse cheeses – by Mary Burns of Ardrahan House and comes in two sizes.
The large wheel weights about 1.5 kilo, the smaller one about 300g. As the product is handmade, the weights will vary slightly form piece to piece.
The cheese is generally available in Ireland and also in England and Scotland. See website for details.
