Mrs Kirkhams Traditional Lancashire is an unpasteurised cow’s milk cheese, handmade by Graham Kirkham, a third-generation cheesemaker, and his team. This farmhouse cheese is moist, rich and creamy, with a ‘buttery crumble’ and a fluffy, light consistency that melts in the mouth.
The cheese’s flavours are sharp and citrusy, with a lingering Lancashire tang. Mrs Kirkhams Traditional Lancashire is usually matured for 2-3 months but can be prolonged for up to 6 months by which time it becomes almost softly spreadable. An excellent melting cheese that progresses to a soft, silky, custard-like texture when cooked. This is lovely grilled on toast.
Generally recognised as one of the best Lancashire cheeses on the market.
