Collier’s Cornish Cow Cheese

Collier’s Cornish Cow Cheese

Sue Collier is no stranger to cheese making in Cornwall. The former Menallack Farm Head Cheesemaker began making cheese over 7 years ago and has now set up her own traditional cheese dairy in Penryn where she works alongside her son Dennis. Colliers Cornish Cheese produces a unique range of artisan cheeses including Cornwall’s only ewes’ milk cheeses. All are lovingly made by hand in small batches using pasteurised Cornish cows or ewes’* milk and vegetarian rennet. Gwig Keus(Cornish for ‘Village Cheese’) is Sue’s flagship cheese. Made using cows’ milk Gwig Keus is matured for a minimum of 6 weeks during which time it develops a characteristic rind of natural edible moulds. Sue describes it as a traditional farmhouse cheese with a smooth, rich texture and rounded creamy flavour which deepens as the cheese matures. As a twist to the traditional farmhouse Gwig Keus is also available with Chilli or Chives & Garlic to add a burst of colour and complimentary flavours to your cheese selection.

Padstow Kitchen Garden

We are very happy to announce that we are now able to supply a fantastic range of salad leaves from Padstow Kitchen Garden. Head grower Ross Geach began his career as a K.P at Rick Stein’s café in Padstow, gaining experience at the Seafood Restaurant and St Petroc’s Bistro before returning to the café as head chef. Ross’s family have worked the land at Trethern Farm, Padstow for six generations, with his passion for food and connections to the farm, Ross with help from his Grandad began to work the land and learnt how to grow salad and vegetables in his spare time. Ross’s career as a grower began when he started selling surplus salad and herbs to local chefs and with the support of Rick and Jill was able to work part time in the kitchen whilst building up the Padstow Kitchen Garden. Ross now supplies many venues in Padstow and the local area, his own experience as a chef has given him a unique perspective of the needs of fellow chefs and he understands exactly what they need with regards to flavour, texture, size and ease of preparation. We are currently offering 500g mixed salad bags which have a mix of around 10 different leaves ( at the moment this mainly consists of mustards and lettuce, this mix can change daily depending on the quality and quantity available). To ensure optimum freshness and quality Ross cuts six days a week starting at seven o’clock in the morning. Alongside the leaves Ross also grows a selection of specially selected seasonal produce, which we look forward to offering when...
