Try the complex and beautifully balanced taste fusion of Baron Bigod, a British-made Brie-de-Meaux-style cheese that won a Silver medal at the World Cheese Awards in 2022.

Baron Bigod is a spin-off of a classic Brie into a one-of-a-kind cross-Channel amalgamation of French cheesemaking and British pastures. Traditional artisan Brie flavours such as rich cream butter and earthy button mushrooms remain prominent, but once they are enjoyed, you can also taste accentuated hints of pan-roasted parsnips.

Baron Bigod owes its existence to continued history. Made by Jonny Crickmore using a traditional Brie-de-Meaux recipe passed on by a French cheesemaker, the cheese is handmade in small batches and aged for up to eight weeks in a cave-like maturing room, resulting in an unctuous, earthy scent.

HERD

Montbéliarde

Baron Bigod uses milk from Montbéliarde cows.
The Montbéliarde is a breed of red pied dairy cattle from the area of Montbéliard, in the département of Doubs, in the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region of eastern France. It is used mainly for dairying and particularly for cheesemaking.

MILK

Pasteurised

Baron Bigod contains pasteurised cows milk. Pasteurisation is a process of heating liquid foods to kill pathogens for safe consumption and extending the shelf life.

A Word on Rennet & Rind Maturing

“Younger Baron Bigod's will be more lactic and gentle, whereas ripened cheeses will be heavy in savoury notes and a little more challenging. The trick is to choose the correct profile to compliment your other cheeses. But you don't need to worry, I'll select those for you."
