"Local cheese sweeps the board at British Cheese Awards 2008"
Two Hoots Barkham Blue has swept the board at this year's British Cheese Awards, going home with no less than three major awards: Supreme Champion, Best English Cheese and Best Blue Cheese.
Made by family run Two Hoots Cheese, in Barkham, Wokingham, Barkham Blue is described as a sweet, spicy blue with a peppery aromatic taste. It had to beat off competition from another 909 cheeses to win the top prize as this year saw anotherrecord number of entries. Two Hoots is run by Sandy and Andy Rose, who said: “It hasn’t really sunk in yet! As you can imagine we were over the moon when the awards were announced. We have had our hearts set on winning “Best Blue” for a number of years and would have been really happy with that, but they just kept coming!”
As Juliet Harbutt, founder of the British Cheese Awards, put it: "Undoubtedly one of the most interesting, charming and more-ish cheeses I have tasted in a long time."
In total, 317 specialities were awarded medals. “It has been another record breaking year with our highest number of entries,” said Juliet. “With record numbers of cheeses reaching medal winning status it's safe to say that the British cheese industry is consistently creating world beating products.”
