If you love brie in all its guises, then savour this unique raw milk Baron Bigod from Fen Farm Dairy. A true farmhouse ‘brie’ using the rich Monbeliarde milk from their herd. Baron Bigod is a creamy, white bloomy-rind cheese.
It has a smooth silky texture and a golden curd, with long lasting warm earth, farmyard and mushroom flavours.
As for wine pairing, James recommends Aglianico, whose fine-grained tannins and suggestive flavours of plum and red fruit make the perfect foil. You can buy Terredora’s Aglianico DOC and Taurasi DOCG from Cuculo Cheese & Wine.
