A smooth and toothsome cheese, Sparkenhoe Red Leicester was essentially brought back from the dead. Cheesemakers David & Jo Clarke set out to revive a cheese that had only been known as an industrially produced supermarket cheese for 50 years. The Clarkes worked off an old recipe in order to create Leicester as remembered by the previous generation. A smooth cheese with a bit of brown butter sweetness and just a hint of citrusy tartness, Neal's Yard also makes sure to select the wheels with the nuttiest and longest-lasting flavor.
