A semi-hard cheese is more open in texture than a hard cheese, not pressed or only lightly pressed and thus contains more moisture than its hard counterpart.

Devon Belle [ Cow Semi-hard Veg Org Pas ]
Ridgewell, Devon

This is a full fat semi-soft cheese made from organic cow's milk. It is made to a Bel Paese recipe and is mellow with a touch of sweetness. It has a supple texture contrasted by the firm but not hard crust which is also good to enjoy. I have to meet Briony at some Devon location (usually Exeter farmer's market on a Thursday)to get this cheese so be prepared to wait a while for this one!
