Cooleeney is produced on the Maher farm in the heart of Tipperary where the peaty pastures are rich and are surrounded by damp boggy land – an environment which allows the Mahers to produce this soft, ripe, runny camembert style cheese with a delicate mushroomy flavour and pleasing after taste.
Cooleeney is a firm favourite at Indie Fude and every customer likes it at a specific stage of ripeness. A young Cooleeney is firm with a chalky paste and light mushroomy flavour. As it ages the structure starts to break down, the paste starts to ooze and the mouths start to water as a pleasant bitterness develops.
There are countless creative ways to serve your Cooleeney and it all depends on personal preference. A beautiful, runny, ripe wedge will look fantastic at the centre of your cheeseboard, or for a decadent lunch, why not bake it and top with some sweet rhubarb chutney and a fresh, zesty salad.
