One of Wales’ best loved soft cheeses, Perl Wen is a glorious and unique cross between a traditional Brie and a Caerffili. Caws Cenarth Cheese farmhouse Caerffili recipe is a starting point for Perl Wen which gives its soft centre a fresh citrus flavour with a hint of sea salt.
As the Perl Wen ripens the cheese beneath the white rind becomes creamy and buttery in texture. If you prefer your soft cheeses runny, rather than with a young chalky texture, eat your Perl Wen close to its Best Before Date.
Ideal in a summer baguette or melted in a Panini with cured ham or bacon. Bake in pastry parcel with a little of your favourite chutney. Very moreish on a cheese board.
