Cheesemaker's Notes

Named after Shana’s East Coast family, King Cole is as big in flavour as the name would suggest. Made in 10” diameter and at 14” tall hoops these big boys weigh in at a whopping 6 kilograms when ready. After separating curds from whey, the cheeses are formed and left to “whey-off” (drain) they are then dry salted, flipped daily until they are ready to be moved into a temperature and humidity controlled aging room. Flipped weekly, the King Cole is pierced with a stainless piercing tool and once they have sufficient blue mould growth they are then moved into long-term cool storage where they are flipped and monitored until the cheesemakers feel they are ready for sale. Mild and creamy this semi-soft blue cheese lingers on your tongue making you want more.
