This clothbound Red Leicester cheese is produced by Long Clawson Dairy in Leicestershire, England. Their Thomas Hoe Stevenson line (named for its founder) represents the finest versions of their characteristic English cheeses. True to its name, its paste has a vibrant hue indicative of added annatto seed. Made with pasteurized cows’ milk, its texture is flaky and friable. Wrapping the wheels in muslin cloth allows air exchange during aging, contributing to its delicate consistency. Its flavors are mellow and toasty with lingering caramel notes. Clothbound Red Leicester is striking served on a cheeseboard with pickles and rustic bread. It’s also tasty grated into cheese biscuits or mashed potatoes for topping stews or shepherd’s pie.
