Nortons 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 a gold medal in the British Cheese Awards in 2012, and features in the World Cheese Book.

The judges’ from the Cheese Awards in 2012 thought the cheese was a “rather pleasant and an unusual combination of flavours that play gently across the palate“.

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.
