Red Leicester – Calverley Mill 400g
Red Leicester is a russet red hard pressed cheese which will be sold at anything from 3 months to 12 months of age. The traditionally made wheels tend to be firmer and drier but have a crumblier texture and a slightly sweet mellow flavour that becomes stronger as the cheese matures.
Red Leicester is a versatile cheese and is essentially a Cheddar alternative. It melts beautifully, adds colour to a cheeseboard and to sauces and makes a nice flavoursome addition to salads either grated or cubed.
