Good and bad moulds/molds in your cheese making

Mould and cheese go hand in hand, what would camembert, brie or blue vein cheese be without the mould? A chunk of curd, that’s what. Unfortunately, from time to time you’ll open your cheese fridge or ageing box and find some sneaky scoundrels have worked their way in there and infected your precious creations.

Leicester is also known as 'Red Leicester'. It is made similarly to cheddar cheese, although the result ends up somewhat crumblier. The cheese traditionally had annatto extract added to the milk to produce its distinctive orange hue, hence the name Red Leicester was born.

It is a versatile cheese, which melts beautifully and brings a nice colour to any cheese platter or…

Milk is one of these, with its nutritional benefits it’s a product that is hard to beat.
