Baron Bigod

Made by Jonny Crickmore using a traditional Brie de Meaux recipe passed on by a French cheesemaker, Baron Bigod is the only raw milk Brie de Meaux style cheese made in the UK. An unctuous cheese, the taste is complex and beautifully balanced. Traditional Artisan Brie flavours, such as rich cream butter and earthy button mushrooms remain prominent, as well as accentuated hints of pan-roasted parsnips.

A Word on Rennet & Rind Maturing

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