There was something raw and authentic about Caerphilly. Her soft tanned skin glowed reminiscent of melted gold. She was subtle, simple and direct, smelling of lemonade and fresh hay. Through her dotted cotton dress of bright yellows and soft sage she revealed her tight pear-shaped behind to their last interview of the day.
Smart, sexy, a woman who was once untamed and free, but Caerphilly had become complacent through the chance of life – luckily her new employee was ready to change everything she thought she knew about herself.
Caerphilly should be eaten in-between 2 and 4 months, older and the cheese will not be as enjoyable. It is a subtle cheese from Wales that’s simplicity is direct enough to make a lasting impression.
It is a cheese that will surprise you. It is a firm, uncooked pressed cheese and made from raw cow milk.
