rolig: I think "vegetarian" is how these particular cheeses are classified and marketed, apart from mine and your senses of what constitutes "vegetarian", and may indicate that no animal products not inimical to the milk and milk fats themselves are added (is that a double negative?). For what that's worth. Yes, it is puzzling - to a hair-splitter, like me.
What do you mean by "vegetarian" here? If you understand "vegetarian" loosely (meaning without meat), then all cheeses are vegetarian, but if you understand the word to exclude all animal byproducts, then this cheese would not be made from milk. Is it made from vegetable fats? *Puzzled.*
A vegetarian, semi-soft, table cheese from Ireland. The terracotta brine-washed rind has fine, white and pale blue mold. The taste of this dense, full-bodied cheese is rich and savory and is a superb compliment to burnt onions and other grilled cheeses. Won silver medals at the British Cheese Awards.
