Cheese lovers, rejoice - if you want to try the world’s best fromage, there’s no need to hop over to France. The world’s best cheese has officially been crowned and it’s… British.

Cornish Kern, a dark-rind, cow-milk Cornish cheese from the Southwest of England took the top spot at The World Cheese Awards in London. The competition, now in its 30th year, sees 250 judges annually select their favourite pressed curd and this year, it received over 3000 entries from 35 countries.

Produced by Lynher Dairies, the medium-hard cheese is matured for around 16 months and is described as “buttery with caramel notes and a deep savoury aroma”. It is said to be a  “flaky and almost dry” in texture and one judge, Whole Foods cheese buyer, Cathy Strange, even called it “visually stunning”.
