Ilchester®

Red Leicester

Ilchester® Red Leicester cheese is favored for its versatility and can be used as a substitute for almost any recipe that calls for a rich Cheddar. This orange beauty has a slightly nutty taste and a firm texture that crumbles easily. Red Leicester is traditionally used in Welsh rarebit, but it also works well in grilled cheese sandwiches and baked pasta dishes.
