Merricks Mist

Red Hill Cheese 'Merricks Mist' with vegimite - hmmmm, a great cheese maker's lunch. Merricks is a cow milk white mold cheese with a mild flavor and very soft smooth texture. I have never had a health problem from eating too much cheese, rather too much bread can be the problem!
I make sheep cheese seasonally from my own East Friesian ewes, goat cheese from a local dairy and cow milk cheese with NASSA certified organic cow milk from Fish Creek in Gippsland. The different milks have their own unique characteristics. Cow milk is very reliable for cheesemaking, and buttery, goat milk has delicate but complex flavour, and sheep milk is just liquid gold, with the best qualities of all the others put together.!
