Family cheese firm in the running for medal at awards
Published on 08/09/2010

A family-run business is hoping to bag a prize at the British Cheese Awards.

Two Hoots' Barkham Blue could be crowned tastiest cheese at the event on Thursday, Get Bracknell reports.

The owner Sandy Rose said she is hoping to do well and explained the firm walked away with the best blue and best English awards two years ago.

"Barkham Blue is made of Channel Island milk so it's quite a buttery cheese," she added.

Ms Rose observed they came up with the cheese - which is often featured in luxury gift hampers alongside a bottle of Port - as an alternative to continental varieties, as they tend to be "very salty".

She explained their products are sold all over the country and the cheese is hand made so each one differs in size slightly.

And Ms Rose remarked the company will now start making Loddon Blue again, after regaining a supply of ewes milk.

The British Cheese Awards were established in 1994 in a bid to raise the profile of the dairy product and in 2000 the British Cheese Festival was added to help educate customers
