Just in time for Thanksgiving 2023, we’re bringing in a wonderfully unusual and spectacular-tasting cheese from England you'll want to share with friends and family.
Available in large wedges of more than 200 g, it’s called Wyfe of Bath—a tasty British take on Gouda made just outside of Bath in southwest England. It’s handmade in a similar manner but isn't pressed like traditional Gouda. Instead, Wyfe of Bath is formed in a simple basket mold.
The result is a texture that's less dense and more springy than Gouda. With 4 months of aging, Wyfe of Bath develops deep, rich flavours with a really nice touch of natural sweetness.
If you’re wondering about the name, it’s borrowed from a lusty character in the literary classic Canterbury Tales from the 14th century.
