Made of unpasteurized organic sheep's milk, Shepherd's Crook (similar to Little Ryding) is a soft hand-made cheese produced by Wooton Organic Dairy, Somerset, England. This mould-ripened cheese has a white rind with smooth and creamy texture when 4 weeks old. As it ages, it becomes softer and creamier. Shepherd's Crook is allowed to mature for more days than its sibling, Little Ryding, that gives it a little taller, narrower shape and milder and firmer texture.
With rich and sweet flavour, it works as an appetizer. Because of vegetarian rennet and 48% fat, it suites vegetarians. It can be served with Riesling.
Available in round shape - Little Ryding weighs about 220g.
