Smooth & Milky St Helena

St. Helena is a semi-soft washed rind cheese, handmade by Julie Cheyney and Blake Bowen from St Jude Cheese in Suffolk. This delicious cows' milk cheese has a moreish, delicately milky flavour and a smooth and silky texture with an edible rind. As St. Helena matures, it develops stronger, more nutty flavours and farmyard notes.

The development of St Helena began during the pandemic, when cheesemaker Blake Bowen, joined Julie, with the mission to create a semi-soft cheese similar to the historic French cheese, Saint Nectaire. Milk is supplied by the local herd of Montbeliarde cows at Fen Farm Dairy (the home of Baron Bigod) and St Helena is named after the town where Blake's family lived for 25 years in Australia. 

This cheese pairs perfectly with a glass of Chenin Blanc.

Won Silver at the British Cheese Awards 2024.
