Tuck into an indulgent bowl of cheesy gnocchi or posh up your next toastie with Orkney Cheese's lavish recipes
Written by Lidia Molina-Whyte
Whether it’s grated into creamy sauces, melted in humble toasties or sprinkled over hearty bakes, nothing quite says comfort food like cheese – and if that cheese is a well-rounded, perfectly sharp cheddar, then you have yourself a winner.
Orkney Cheese’s cheddar is made in the beautiful Orkney Islands. Its distinct flavour comes from using Orkney-reared cows from Berriedale Farm, a family-owned dairy farm that has a rich island history. Each batch is also traditionally hand-salted, ensuring the end flavour is just right.
Orkney White Mature Cheddar is a mellow cheese with a subtle tangy kick. Grate it into this silky cauliflower cheese soup for the perfect winter warmer.
Orkney Coloured Mature Cheddar is a darker shade, with layers of rich flavour. It will add an extra kick to anything you add it to, but tastes especially moreish in this tear and share bread.
Want an even softer finish? Orkney Medium Coloured cheddar will give you just that. The creamy cheese has a malleable texture, and the way its produced means it releases less oil when melted.
So, make Orkney Cheddar a staple in your fridge to satisfy all your comfort food cravings this winter.
