Tintern Cheddar with Chives and Shallots

Tintern Cheddar with Chives and ShallotsTintern is creamy Welsh cheddar with chives and shallots that fills your mouth with flavor. It delivers the tang of sour cream with a bite of sweet shallots and grassy chives. This fantastic creation of Abergavenny Fine Food is wrapped in green wax to keep it fresh—if it lasts that long!

Tintern has a texture that readily yields to a knife and make it a favorite for both cooking and snacking. It is a wonderful addition to a cheese plate, livens up a simple omelette, quiche, or soufflé. It also makes an insane grilled cheese sandwich! Or simply enjoy it with crackers and a good red wine or ale.

Tinter is named for the Tintern Abbey, and it is said that the “White Monks of Tintern” who built the abbey in 1131 farmed shallots on the abbey grounds.
