Mrs Kirkham's Lancashire
Lancashire cheese maker Graham - Mrs Kirkham’s son - still follows the traditional two-day curd method, giving a buttery, yoghurty flavour with a fluffy and light texture that melts in the mouth. Not to mistaken for a cheap, supermarket imposter, this cheese is made from raw, unpasteurised milk – now a rare treat – to produce a flavour described as “mega”. More specifically, “Traditional Lancashire should have a big wow factor flavour but with nothing prickly or sharp; mellow, milky, and buttery, that’s what we’re looking for, with a little bit of lemon acidity on the back.” That's exactly what you get with this Gold Medal winner at this years British Cheese Awards.
