Wild Garlic Yarg from Lynher Dairies is a holder of a coveted Supergold at the World Cheese Awards, which means the judges considered it one of the top seventy cheeses in the world.
When you compare the tastes, it is hard to believe that both Cornish Yarg (nettled) and the Wild Garlic Yarg are made to an identical recipe until it comes to the painting on of the leaves. The striking difference in taste and texture is all down to nature. Six weeks after being wrapped around the bare truckle, the leaves have helped to create a slightly firmer texture than the crumbly nettled Yarg . By this time, they have darkened in colour and impart a gentle garlicky flavour.
