Triskel Cheeses are hand-ladled French-style soft goats cheeses and a semi-hard cow’s cheese, made by Breton woman Anna Leveque. Anna’s partner is the apple farmer Philip Little, and she makes her cheeses at a small production unit at their home in Portlaw, West Waterford, using locally sourced milk.
There are three Triskel Goats cheeses (Pyramid, Crottin and Bouche), all made from milk sourced from a goat farm in Camolin, Co Wexford, and the curds are hand-ladled into the moulds in the typical French way. Anna also produces a semi-hard cow’s cheese, Gwenned, using milk sourced locally in Kilmeaden.
The Triskel cheeses are popular with discerning chefs and Anna’s wonderful cheeses were recognised by Euro-Toques in their 2012 EirGrid/Euro-Toques Food Awards.
Available from Sheridans outlets, including Ardkeen Stores; in the English Market at On the Pig’s Back; and it is also available in Ballymaloe Cookery School shop.
