Cheshire cheese has a loose and crumbly texture, much more friable and moist than many other firm cheeses. The cheese has a mild and lightly salty taste which is attributed to the salty soil of the Cheshire plain. Mature cheeses acquire more piquancy with age.

Cheshire could be England's oldest cheese. It was mentioned in the Domesday Book and its origins go back to Roman times.

We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces or you can purchase an entire wheel of approx. 9 pounds.


Ingredients:pasteurized cow's milk, salt, diary cultures, color annatto, vegetable rennet.
