Quick Reference

A pale yellow, crumbly, cow's-milk hard cheese made originally at Caerphilly, to the north of Cardiff, and in surrounding areas of the Vale of Glamorgan. Records of its manufacture go back to the early nineteenth century, but production was stopped by the Ministry of Food in 1940, and it has never picked up again in Wales. Most Caerphilly is now made in Somerset.
