Quicke’s has announced that its award-winning cheese will now by made using Cornish Sea Salt following years of testing, tweaking and maturation
The use of sea salt adds a new complexity of flavour to the Devon-based cheesemaker’s crafted clothbound Cheddar.
This Devon-Cornwall collaboration is the latest enhancement in Quicke’s long history of cheesemaking.
Mary Quicke MBE, owner of Quicke's said, “We are really excited by the move to Cornish Sea Salt in our cheese and are delighted to be the first to do this after so many years in the making. Cornish Sea Salt has a unique mineral-rich flavour that initially hits the palate and then withdraws to enhance other ingredients, which gives us an extra complexity of flavour. Just like in cooking, Cornish Sea Salt adds a lovely brightness and pleasing complexity in the salt flavour and you really notice an extra zing at the end.
"Harvested out in the ocean, it’s concentrated nature without the impurities you find in pan-dried sea salt. As an unexpected benefit, the sea salt is also more demanding to mix into the fresh curd than table salt, so this stage has required even more love and care from the team. We are noticing a greater roundness in the flavour that we are putting down to that extra work.”
