Award-winning St Jude Cheese

St Jude is a soft cheese handmade from unpasteurised cows' milk, shaped into a small disc and presented in the box in which the cheese is also matured. St Jude cheese has a gentle lemony acidity and a light and mousse-like texture. As the cheese ripens, the flavour intensifies, and the texture softens. This artisanal cheese has beautiful seasonal variations and each batch is unique - with more grassy notes in the summer & more buttery flavours in the winter.

Handmade by Julie Cheyney at White Wood Dairy in northeast Suffolk using the raw milk from a herd of predominately French Montbéliarde cows. The diverse grasses of the pastures in the Waveney Valley contribute to the complex flavours in the cheese. When the cows are out to pasture, the cheeses tend to conjure grassy and vegetal flavours and when the cows come indoors to escape the winter weather these tastes become more buttery and creamy.

The milk comes directly from the dairy parlour into the cheeseroom. Barely an hour old, this fresh milk has the cultures added and the cheesemaking ‘process’ starts. Julie believes that good cheese is made ‘slowly and gently’, using as little intervention as possible, whilst ensuring that conditions are right. This approach enhances the milk to bring the flavours of the pasture through to a truly artisanal cheese and allows the character of the milk to express itself.
