Thomas Hoe Stevenson Aged Rutland Red made by Long Clawson Dairy is a multi award winning Cheese winning three golds at the global cheese awards.Made using a traditional recipe, Rutland Red is buttered, cloth-bound and matured for six months to produce a flaky, open texture cheese with a slightly sweet, caramelised flavour and rich golden orange colour. It is the only pasteurised Red Leicester produced in the county of Leicestershire.
I used to get this from Morrisons but they stopped selling it. I tracked it down to here. I guess Rutland being close to Leicestershire, there is a Red Leicester influence, but this has better flavour and texture. Excellent.
If you like traditional cheeses, you'll like this one.
I love cheese. I have lots of favourites - only one tops the list - Rutland Red. I've bought it for years - the name has changed several times but the quality never. I've been all over to get it. Lately it has been very difficult to get. Another internet search and up came The Online Dairy. They sent a whole cheese, well packed and overnight. Christmas came early for me with the delivery. I'm so glad I found Online Dairy. Quality Service with Quality Cheese. Thank you.
