VEGETABLE RENNET

Coagulated with flowers from the Cardoon Thistle — which grows in the hills surrounding the dairies — this gives a distinct herbaceous flavour to the rich flowing curds, finishing with a wild, sharply sweet earthiness. Made by hand, the wheels are bathed in brine, then rubbed to give a smooth, almost waxy feel to the finished rind. Full-bodied dry red wines are an ideal match.
