Gorwydd Caerphilly was originally dreamt up during the Industrial Revolution, as a means of sustenance for coal miners. It aged quickly (three-to-four months) and could be eaten with your bare hands. This ease of use made it a favorite, while the care exerted by Welsh cheesemakers over the years made it a classic. Today, the Trethowan family at Gorwydd Farm in Somerset make theirs with raw cow’s milk and traditional animal rennet, using milk from their Jerseys and Holstein Friesians. It has a natural rind, an oozy layer of earthy mushroom goodness beneath the rind, and at its center a lactic, lemony curd core.
