When young, Eve is a soft and creamy cheese, but it develops in complexity as it matures. There are 'nutty' hints that complement the 'goaty' notes, and both are balanced by the slightly pungent rind.
Although Peter is based in the heart of Cheddar country just outside Glastonbury, he makes cheese on Bagborough Farm, home to 600 goats. Peter loves to experiment with different recipes using the delicious, fresh goats’ milk that flows straight into the dairy.
Eve was created as a development of a small cheese called Little Lily that had a bloomy rind. Peter wanted to see what would happen if he washed it first in local Somerset Cider Brandy, and then wrapped it in a vine leaf. Eve is the happy result.
The light washing adds a complexity and very slight pungency to the light, delicate goats’ milk flavour. Combined with the washing, the vine leaf coat encourages the cheese to break down a little under the rind, contributing to the creaminess of the white interior of the cheese.
