Castello white
« on: August 04, 2012, 02:44:15 AM »
Hello all,
A new cheesemaker from New Zealand here. One of my favourite commercially produced cheeses is Castello White - a soft creamy mild cheese that spreads readily and is - in my opinion - utterly sublime. My question is, does anyone know how this cheese is made? It seems to have a very soft exterior bloom rather than a thick P. candidum or Geotrichum mould cover. It does soften further as it ripens but I never find it goes completely runny like a typical white mould cheese such as Camembert or Coulommiers. I would dearly love to make something along these lines for myself. Any info or ideas would be most welcome. Thanks.

Hi Kiwi,

Castello White is one of my favourites. If you do make it, let me know would love to try it. From a kiwi cheeseater.
