Rustic Rachel is a hard, unpasteurised, English, vegetarian, goats cheese.
Rachel is one of our favourite cheeses from one of our favourite cheese-makers.
Rachel is a semi-hard goats' cheese with a well-rounded, lingering flavour. Pete Humphries named it after a friend of his "because it is sweet, curvy and a bit nutty"! The interior is milky white while the rind is chestnut coloured and edible, adding Rachel's nuttiness. Made by Pete Humphries and Roger Longman at Bagborough Farm in Somerset, they also make Grey's Ash for us, Morn Dew, Nancy and Alex James' (Blur's bass player's) cheeses.
