Perl Las, meaning ‘Blue Pearl’ in Welsh, is a superb organic blue cheese made by Caws Cenarth in Carmarthenshire. This delicious, golden, veiny cheese has become one of the most famous and highly regarded cheeses in Wales. It is delicately salty and creamy with a lingering blue aftertaste. Pair with a glass of sauternes, or use it to create a blue cheese sauce – the perfect accompaniment to steak or pasta dishes.
Perl Las is available in either 200g mini truckles, or in larger 2.5kg truckles and 1.25kg half truckles. A 2.5kg truckle is around 19cm in diameter and 10cm in height.
Caws Cenarth have been making cheese on their farm in the valley of the river Cych in West Wales for several generations. Thelma and Gwynfor Adams spearheaded the renaissance in Welsh cheesemaking in the 1980s, and the business is now run by their son Carwyn. Cenarth now make a diverse range of superb organic cheeses, many of which have won multiple awards.
