Taste of the Week. Timos Irish Cheddar Cheese

Taste of the Week
Timos Irish Cheddar Cheese

Didn’t see any cheese stall while strolling around the local Farmers Market last Saturday (28th September), so called into the shopping centre and spotted a selection in the Douglas Vegetable Fruit and Veg shop.

I hadn’t seen this one before: Timos Mature Cheddar, made in East Cork by Carrig Foods. The label also indicates it has been “slowly matured for over two years” and is “very Flavoursome”. It is now our Taste of the Week.

Enjoyed a small tasting with Arbutus sourdough (and not much else) during a quick lunch. It certainly is very flavoursome and not as “dried out” as some mature cheddars.  Apparently the company was set up eight or nine years ago by Siobhain, the daughter of Jane Murphy who makes the multi-award winning Ardsallagh Goat Cheese.
