Cheddar Cheese came to life in the humid caves of the village of Cheddar in Somerset England, in the late 12th century. Cheddar cheese is made from separating the curds from the whey in cow’s milk, which is then pressed and aged to create a rich and smooth flavour.
As Cheddar matures, it gradually develops intricacies in flavour, appearance, texture and aroma. Cheddar can change from a fresh, creamy texture to a crumbly cheese with sharp tones and nutty highlights. Aged Cheddar is a cheese with intense aroma that is both dry and rich in flavour. It can be delightfully paired with baked dishes, creamy soups, sauces and even desserts.
