Washed rind cheeses are so called because they are ripened, then washed in brine, which creates a wonderful umami flavour that pairs beautifully with the sour in the fermented mushroom.
Start with our Caramelised Onion Flatbreads, they also bring out the flavour of this fantastic cheese. Spread on your favourite washed rind cheese, add the pickled mushrooms, then just a sprinkle of fresh thyme to finish.
- Store-bought pickled mushrooms are handy to have in the cupboard for a five-minute cracker flavour fix!
The pale, off-dry lightness of Crafters Union Pinot Gris is beautifully complex: perfect with washed rind cheese.
