Somerdale Cheese Set To Wow Sydney’s Adventurous Foodies
Somerdale International, the leading supplier of British speciality cheese in Australia, is preparing to set the taste buds of adventurous ‘foodies’ alight as it showcases some of its very best cheese on Stand E20 at the forthcoming Good Food and Wine Show being held in Sydney.
The Show which will run from 22 – 24 June at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour will see over 20,000 visitors look for the very best in food and drink and they won’t be disappointed at the Somerdale stand which will be sampling and selling a range of great tasting classic and contemporary British cheeses.
- Barber’s 1833 Farmhouse Cheddar made in Somerset, England, 13 miles from the village of Cheddar itself and protected under the PDO certification, this two-year old Vintage Reserve 1833 Cheddar is a creamy cheese with a distinct bite and smooth finish. The Barber family have been making Cheddar since 1833, which makes them the oldest cheese making family in England and one of the oldest Cheddar producers in the World!
- Il Truffelino has been developed exclusively for Somerdale and combines the creamy texture of Classic English Cheddar with the complex and luxuriant flavour of Black Summer Truffles.
- Somerdale Wensleydale and Cranberries is a true classic combining the creamy, open texture and natural sweet acidity of Wensleydale with sweet, juicy, plump cranberries.
- Somerdale Red Leicester this traditional English territorial cheese is made in a similar manner to cheddar but has a more open and crumblier texture than its counterpart. The Somerdale Red Leicester is rich and buttery with a full, smooth flavour, which becomes stronger as the cheese matures.
In addition, visitors to the Somerdale stand will also be able to sample the authentic taste of Rodda Cornish Clotted Cream. The Rodda family have been making Cornish clotted cream on the same site for five generations using the same passion, expertise and traditional cooking method for over 125 years. The quality and authenticity of Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream is recognised by its holding of a Protected Designation of Origin status – a European Union award designed to protect traditional, regional foods against imitation.
Australian consumers are becoming ever more adventurous in their tastes and we are noticing an increasing demand for both innovative and truly authentic cheese and dairy products. Boosted by the growing number of travel/cookery shows, Australians are increasingly looking to explore what the best in British and European food has to offer in terms of provenance, flavour and texture.
At Somerdale, we pride ourselves on working with long established, family-run, British producers who care passionately about producing cheeses of the highest quality, consistency and taste. The result is a range of both classic and contemporary British cheese which will set the taste buds alight of Australian foodies.
