Red Leicester

Size
Made by hand by only a few county farms (Leicestershire, United Kingdom)

Say what you will about brightly colored cheese, this one is a true show stopper. Made with raw cow's milk, though quite similar, this cheese is not simply a cheddar variation. The eye catching deep red/orange colour cheese is quite different in both texture and moisture. Clothbound by hand, quite tangy in flavor, it is dense and crumbly with subtle hints of burnt caramel and earthen notes from the rind.
