Lancashire Cheese has a full-bodied flavor that is slightly salted and has a creamy but faintly crumbly texture. Renowned as one of the best toasting cheeses, Lancashire melts into a luscious mass under the grill and used to be known as the 'Leigh toaster' after a small town near Manchester where it was made. As Lancashire matures, the flavor intensifies and the cheese becomes harder. It is best eaten at around three months of age.
