Cornish Yarg Cheese

Cornish Yarg CheeseI couldn’t leave Cornwall without finding a good place where to buy the typical Cornish cheese, the Yarg. I’m a greedy cheese passionate and I always want to try the local cheeses of the places I visit. This cheese is quite special, as it’s made solely in Cornwall by Lynher Daries and it’s not produced in on a mass scale. It’s difficult to find it outside Cornwall.

The Yarg is a semi-hard cow’s milk cheese, from the Friesian cows. Before being left to mature, this cheese is wrapped in nettle leaves to form an edible, though mouldy, rind. Usually the texture is soft and creamy. It has a fresh and tangy taste.

The recipe was invented by a couple in Cornwall in the 1970s.

Where to buy the Yarg Cheese in Cornwall

I searched for a good place where to buy the cheese for me and for my wife’s parents, which are probably even more greedy than me. They go mad for cheese. I found a place called Kittow Bros, in Fowey which sells the traditional Yarg and many other delicious products.

Kittow Brows sells 300g of Yarg cheese at £5.40. They also sell a Garlic Yarg, which is wrapped in garlic leaves instead of the nettle leaves. The Garlic Yarg is a bit cheaper, £4.95 for 300g. I like the traditional Yarg more, but the Garlic one has an interesting taste.
