Chalkies Cheese

The ‘hiraeth’ was running strong today as we sampled some suspicious looking cheese from Pen Llyn.  The cheese looked and smelled like an old acquaintance, the taste tantalisingly familiar.  Here, ten years on was the matured spirit of ‘chalkies cheese’  John and his wife kept goats, Daphne made the cheese, it sold phenomenally well.  In conversation we find this cheese was made from their recipes, this cheesemaker (who hailed from their original village) learnt his craft from the lady herself, who incidentally (and John) are still with us, living on the Llyn, though not keeping goats!
