A long delayed visit to Falside Farm (two miles from Pittenweem) – home of Fife’s best (only?) new cheese – didn’t disappoint. Jane Stewart has produced not only a fabulous new cheese – ‘Ansther’ – but a great coffee house venue and shop with views across the fields to the sea. The cheese is from the unpasteurised milk, straight from their own herd of home-bred Holstein Friesian cows.
Falside uses a vegetarian rennet to set the milk, rather than calves’ rennet, so its vegetarian.
It’s a crumbly white cheese, suggested summer recipes include thick shards of it, with rocket and strawberries.
We’re working on a full list or retailers throughout Fife you can go get it. If you see it about – please let us know, in the meantime here’s more on the Falside Farm cafe here…
