British Buffalo Brie launches at Waitrose

There’s a new cheese on the block at Waitrose, Organic Buffalo Milk Brie – made from British farmed organic buffalo milk in Hampshire. While buffalo milk is commonly used for mozzarella, this is the first time a supermarket has stocked a British brie made from Buffalo milk.

The ‘Too Good to be called Brie’ cheese, made by Laverstoke Park in Hampshire, is made entirely from British produced organic Buffalo milk. Ripened in the traditional way with a soft white edible mould which covers the cheese, the taste is full and rich with added subtle depths and flavours which develop over time. The cheese has a distinct flavour courtesy of the creamy organic buffalo milk from the herd at Laverstoke which feed off the farm’s rich pastures.

Carla Smith, Cheese Buyer at Waitrose says, ‘At Waitrose we love to offer our customers new British cheeses which are unique and delicious, which is why we are so excited to introduce the new Buffalo Brie. Smooth and rich with delicate flavours, it’s perfect eaten alone or used as an ingredient in a variety of recipes.

Jody Scheckter, Laverstoke Founder says: “The taste is full and rich with subtle depths and flavours. As the cheese ripens it changes from a chalky consistence to a soft, bright golden colour with a creamy texture.

AboutMyGeneration has sampled this innovative cheese and it is a delicious alternative to traditional Brie.
