Leeds Blue is a creamy, rich, Ewe’s milk blue made by Yorkshire Pecorino in picturesque Harrogate, North Yorkshire. The turquoise blue specks are bold, with a peppery flavour, and a certain sweetness that leaves you wanting more. This cheese has won Gold at the ‘World Cheese Awards’, ‘International Cheese Awards’, and the ‘Artisan Cheese Awards’. Perfect on your cheeseboard, or in a blue cheese sauce to serve with steak.
Yorkshire Pecorino Cheese Ltd is run by Mario, who moved from Sardinia to Yorkshire in 2001. Here he discovered a love of ‘God’s Own Country’ and began producing Yorkshire Pecorino to sell at the Leeds Farmers’ Market. Mario’s ingredients are sourced as locally as possible and he puts love and care into each product that he makes. He hand-picks the Ewe’s milk producers, to ensure they share his same passion for animal welfare. He feels that the quality of an animal’s life is reflected in the quality of the milk, and we agree!
Please note all cheeses are hand-cut, therefore the weights listed are approximate. We work very hard to cut them as accurately as we can!
