K is for... smoked Kirkham, Keen's Cheddar, Kilcummin and Kelsey Lane


It was to Neal's Yard Dairy in Borough Market that Richard went to collect K night's cheeseboard. He returned with smoked Kirkham, a crumbly, creamy unpasteurised cows milk cheese and definitely a favourite of the night. He also bought some Keen's Cheddar, a deliciously rich and tangy unpasteurised cows milk cheese, and Kilcummin, a smooth and firm unpasteurised cows milk cheese, described by Neal's Yard as having "some quite wild flavours which can be either yeasty, sweet or tongue tinglingly spicy but with a warm savouriness alongside it". Lastly, we had Kelsey Lane an unpasteurised soft sheeps milk cheese - rich and milky and my personal favourite of the night. I served the cheese with kalamata olives.
