Lancashire is mild, smooth creamy. Lancashire is an English cow's-milk cheese from the county of Lancashire. There are three distinct varieties of Lancashire cheese. This Lancashire in its crumbly form is more alike to Cheshire or Wensleydale. These are cheeses with pale colour, light crumbly textures and mellow tastes. These cheeses tend to be younger white cheeses. The tasty Lancashire cheese is best had with bread and pickle. Lancashire, like most British cheeses, is the perfect complement to a good beer or ale. It's equally delicious paired with a Chardonnay or Muscadet. It often appears as a staple part of a "Ploughman's Lunch," a traditional meal served in pubs across Great Britain.
