George Mewes News
 
Good afternoon, folks!

Well, it's the first newsletter of 2022, so let me say on behalf of myself and all my staff, have a great New Year and let's hope the coming months are better for everyone!
We've had one or two reports from customers saying that their deliveries at Christmas were a bit late – if this has happened to you, my apologies. Once the item goes to the courier I'm afraid it's outwith our control. I think problems with courier staff and drivers self-isolating has contributed to that.
Meanwhile, we have a part-time post going in the Edinburgh shop – no prior experience is required, just a love of good food, willingness to learn and hard-working attitude! If you are interested, just drop a CV into the Edinburgh shop or email edinburgh@georgemewescheese.



All the best in cheese

Cheese of the Week    Pecorino Tartufo
Pecorino Moliterno al Tartufo, to give it its full grand name, is a truffle-infused sheep's cheese from Sardinia that packs a powerful punch – and is sure to delight those who like a strong cheese hit!
It's named after the village of Moliterno in southern Italy, where cheesemakers Agostino Vllleco and his son Gerardo came from before they moved to Sardinia in the 1920s. There they found what they were looking for – a good supply of ewe's milk – and this Pecorino is still made there today.
Pecorino Moliterno al Tartufo is matured from six to eight months to give the cheese its own character before it is injected with Italian black summer truffle paste. It is then aged for a further five months, ensuring that the rich flavour of the truffle spreads throughout the cheese. The cheeses are also rubbed with vinegar and olive oil while maturing which helps to give them rich, earthy, salty notes. This is an amazing cheese – it makes a delicious appetiser served by itself with a plate of cured meats. You can also grate it onto pastas and risottos for extra zing, add it to scrambled eggs for a breakfast truffle hit, or simply melt it onto ciabatta. Pecorino Moliterno al Tartufo has a full-bodied, powerful and intense flavour and it needs a big wine to match, so try it with Barolo, Barbaresco or Amarone.
