Crowned Supreme Champion at the World Cheese Awards 2017, Kern is a cheese not to miss. Firm to the cut, slightly flaky in the middle, it is buttery with caramel notes. Originally derived from a Gouda style cheese, we add Alpine starter cultures to create a close texture resembling Dutch and French/Swiss cheeses. It matures for sixteen months within its handsome black wax coating. Not available to buy directly from the dairy but look for it in good delis, specialist cheesemongers and restaurants that know their cheese!
Wrap in wax paper, store below 8 degrees, serve at room temperature.
