A Cornish cheese has recently been named World Champion in the 2017 World Cheese Awards in London.
Made by Lynher Dairies Cheese Company, in Ponsanooth, Cornish Kern is described as a hard, alpine-style cheese, ‘buttery with caramel notes’.
Competing against 3000 cheese entries, from 35 countries, Cornish Kern was awarded 75 points out of a possible 80, making it the judges’ favourite.
The Managing Director of the Guild of Fine Food, John Farrand, commented that “Cornish Kern is a perfect example of cheese-making at its finest.”
Lynher Dairies is also home to the delicious and hugely popular Cornish Yarg.
