Tell Me About The Cheese!
We’ve picked four of our favourite, crowd pleasing, cheese’s for the Slieve Beg Celebration Cheese Cake. Providing a balanced cheeseboard – with something for everyone.
Corleggy Goat Mini
Corleggy Goat Mini is the smaller, individually packaged whole wheel version of Corleggy Goat. At Corleggy every cheese is made by hand with production not exceeding 10 tonnes per annum between Goats, Sheep & Cows’ milk cheeses. Tom & Silke Kroppe collect all their milk from three neighbouring farms using just mornings milk for production.
Corleggy Goat is a hard cheese handmade from raw goat’s milk. A typical Irish goats cheese because the goats graze the rich pasture and eat more grass than their southern European cousins…that makes for sweeter milk and in time cheese. Corleggy Goat is eight weeks to four months matured depending on season weather & humidity. The rind is natural & edible and very flavoursome. We feel that the aroma and taste strike a perfect balance between rich and mild.
Corleggy Goat Mini comes in individual cloth bound wheels tied with a ribbon of straw. This beautiful presentation makes it the perfect gift for any cheese lover or a great cheeseboard centrepiece.

When Louis & Jane set out to make Cashel Blue, they wanted to make a cheese that “truly represents the outstanding quality of Tipperary grass-fed milk.” They have achieved just that. This rich, creamy blue has a full and rounded mouthfeel followed by a gentle saltiness and – with age – spiciness that doesn’t overpower, allowing the quality of the milk to shine through.
With its light yellow paste and gorgeous, marble-like veins of blue, Cashel is a beautiful addition to any cheeseboard or served along with a Deli Muru Party Pack to wow your party guests!

Eamonn and Patricia Lonergan have been making their Knockanore smoked cheddar on their farm at Ballyneety, in Waterford since 1987. Eamonn makes a range of vac-aged cheddar type cheeses using raw cow’s milk from his own herd of 120 pedigree Fresians and vegetarian rennet. Currently about half of all the milk produced on the farm is used in cheesemaking.
Knockanore cheddar is made on the farm and selected wheels are then cold oak smoked for ten days using a traditional kiln. The oak used is sourced locally from Lismore. This traditional smoking process results in a cheese with a natural tasting smoke that isn’t overpowering, setting it apart from more common smoked cheeses which frequently use artificial liquid smoke to achieve their smoky flavour.
The wheels are subsequently vac-packed and aged on-site for a minimum of four months. The exterior of the cheese is light mahogany in colour, the paste is semi-firm in texture with a yellow colour. The long smoking process gives Knockanore smoked a full on, meaty flavour that is a real hit with fans of smoked cheese.

Cooleeney is produced on the Maher farm in the heart of Tipperary where the peaty pastures are rich and are surrounded by damp boggy land – an environment which allows the Mahers to produce this soft, ripe, runny camembert style cheese with a delicate mushroomy flavour and pleasing after taste.
Cooleeney is a firm favourite at Indie Fude and every customer likes it at a specific stage of ripeness. A young Cooleeney is firm with a chalky paste and light mushroomy flavour. As it ages the structure starts to break down, the paste starts to ooze and the mouths start to water as a pleasant bitterness develops.
There are countless creative ways to serve your Cooleeney and it all depends on personal preference. A beautiful, runny, ripe wedge will look fantastic at the centre of your cheeseboard, or for a decadent lunch, why not bake it and top with some sweet rhubarb chutney and a fresh, zesty salad.
