Product details

Jonny Crickmore has taken his stunning brie-style cheese, Baron Bigod, to the next level. He combines his own Mascarpone with our Tartuflanghe Summer Truffle Cream, to create a gorgeous truffle cream centre. A world of complex, heady flavour is barely contained within a tantalisingly thin rind. 

Made from the milk of his own herd of Montbeliarde cows in Suffolk, where Jonny’s family have been farming the land for three generations. Recently Jonny decided it was time to make some radical changes. He set off to France in search of cows that could produce the highest quality milk available. He chose Montbeliarde, the cows whose high protein milk is used for some of the famous French cheeses such as Comté and Vacherin Mont d’Or. He brought his ladies back to Suffolk, and set about building up his herd by cross-breeding Friesians with Montbeliardes to gradually add the great benefits this breed brings to the family’s own herd.

Great milk deserves the utmost respect, and Jonny’s perfectionism in choosing his herd is matched by his approach to cheese-making. The warm milk straight from the milking parlour is handled as carefully as possible to preserve its delicate cell structure. The milk is gravity-fed to the dairy, where it is gently poured into the cheese vat. Each stage of the process is done by hand, from cutting the curds with long knives to carefully transferring the fragile curds into the moulds by using the traditional pelle-a-brie ladles.
