Golden Cross, a log-shaped cheese, is produced by Kevin and Alison Blunt on their farm in Whitesmith, East Sussex, England. The cheese draws its name from a cross adorning the roof of a local village pub. Created with unpasteurized ewe’s milk and vegetable rennet, the cheeses are lightly charcoaled before maturation, encouraging the growth of a velvety white penicillium mould on the surface.

When young, Golden Cross exhibits a fine, firm, silky texture and imparts a fresh, citrusy flavour. As it matures, the cheese becomes denser and creamier, with robust and intricate flavours. Golden Cross is a delightful addition to cheeseboards and is used in cooking and grilling, thanks to its dense, silky texture.
