Nortons St Swithins Soft Cheese with Lavender came about from a fortuitous combination of a family legacy of eating Boursin and an excellent local herb supplier, Schyra Foods of Horsford. The cheese won the overall award for the Best Flavour Added cheese at the British Cheese Awards in 2017, and features in the World Cheese Book.
The judges’ from the Cheese Awards thought the cheese was a “rather pleasant and an unusual combination of flavours that play gently across the palate“. And to be awarded the best in category is a massive compliment! That’s one of the top 10 cheeses in the whole country!
Nortons Soft with Lavender is a wonderful cheese to include in a salad, to have on oat crackers with beetroot chutney, or try our stuffed chicken breast recipe.
