yarg -

Yarg or Cornish Yarg is a cheese from the Cornwall region of England made with milk from Friesian cattle. The recipe for the cheese was first made in 1984 by Alan Gray in Treplay Rancher near Truro in western Cornwall.

He then moved to Netherton Ranch near Liskeard to make the cheese along with Michael Horrell and his family. The name "Yarg" is the opposite of the cheese maker's name "Gray". Cornsih Yarg cheese never won a silver medal in the "British Cheese Awards" in 1995.

The cheese has a diameter of about 25 centimeters, 7 centimeters thick and weighs 3 kilograms. The texture of Yarg cheese is soft and tastes fresh, full of cream and a slightly sharp odor. During the ripening process, the cheese becomes softer on the outside and then inside.
