Cheshire White

This is believed to be England’s oldest cheese dating back to Roman times.  It is often pinky-orange (from the addition of the vegetable dye annatto), but is also available in white form.  It has a savory, salty tang that lingers.  The interior is dense with a fine crumbly texture.  Wax coated and clothbound versions are both produced today.

How to Enjoy:

Cheshire is great grilled, baked, or crumbled in salads or soups.  Customary to pair with a glass of ale or a full bodied red wine.
