OVER THE MOON DAIRY GALACTIC GOLD 1/2 SQUARE 100G
A show stopper with a vibrant orange rind and piquant flavour. Galactic Gold is a winner on any cheese board. As this cheese matures the paste changes from soft to creamy and melting and the aroma intensifies.
Made from high quality cow’s milk.
Galactic Gold is orangey-yellow and the rind may be slightly sticky. It has a rich, aromatic, piquant flavour and a creamy, soft and supple body, a little like the texture of camembert. The texture is creamy and melting, and as it matures the cheese develops a more complex taste. If the mature version is too strong for you try a younger one next time.
This style of cheese is known as ‘washed rind’. Once the cheeses are set out to mature after making they are washed with brine solution every 2-3 days during their maturation time which helps to develop their distinctive texture and flavour. Originally developed by Trappist Monks to eat on their fasting days, they were originally banned on French public transport because of their strong ‘smelly socks” aroma!
Galactic Gold is delicious in salads, quiches, and on cheese platters, but best of all as a dessert with dried fruit.
