Taste of the Week
I recently bought two sheep milk cheeses at On the Pig's Back in the English Market. One, a hard cheese from Cratloe Hills in Clare, I knew well. The other, Dromana, I didn't know well at all and it was only later when reading the small print that I realised is is produced by the outstanding Knockalara Farmhouse near Cappoquin. I know it very well now as it is our Taste of the Week.
The small pack contains the soft cheese, sunflower oil, fine herbs, and salt. You need nothing else really. Young and delicate, it is delicious but may be enhanced by adding a tomato or two. These are in season now and we have three plants in the back which are producing a handful each day (ideal for us). These fresh beauties go ever so well with the cheese and are themselves enhanced by the oil and herbs. Just some local serendipity! Enjoy.
