With his Jersey herd of cows, Jamie Montgomery makes a raclette-style cheese.  Ogleshield is washed for three-months and is perfect for raclette grilling or simply eaten on its own!
A 1.4 kilogram piece(about a quarter of a whole cheese) is ideal for a swing-raclette grill.  Allow 200g-250g per person for cooking as raclette.
Jamie Montgomery (of Montgomery Cheddar) developed this cheese whilst looking for a recipe to use his Jersey milk.  Whilst his other milk (Friesian-Holstein) was going into Montgomery’s Cheddar production, Jersey milk is too rich in fat (and the fat globules are too big) to make a good ‘ageing’ cheese.  For a long-time he simply sold it on as liquid milk.

When two Americans visited Montgomery’s on a tour of Europe, however, they were tasked with developing something to do with this milk, in return for learning the secrets of Montgomery’s Cheddar.  They developed a Tomme style, called Shield (because that was what it looked like).  This was sent to affineur Bill Oglethorpe who decided to have a go at washing the cheese and, hey presto, Ogleshield, a washed-rind raclette style cheese, arrived.

This product will have two weeks shelf life from the date of delivery.

The Courtyard Dairy

Award wining purveyors of world cheeses, their extensive range have been aged to perfection, then hand-cut at the shop. You might occasionally find the same cheese available elsewhere, but we doubt they will taste as good – cheeses matured by The Courtyard Dairy taste simply amazing
