Product Highlights

Made to a Gorgonzola recipe, Leeds Blue is another belter from Mario Olianas at Yorkshire Pecorino.

Soft, creamy and rich, it has wonderful blue clusters throughout, giving a fantastic saltiness to the cheese.

Non-Vegetarian

Ewe's Milk

Flavour Profile: A gentle mild blue aged for 30 days with savoury notes. It comes with a slight bitterness, but also with some lovely sweetness that lingers in your mouth. The ewe’s milk, locally sourced each day, gives this cheese a lovely rounded richness. 

Drink Pairing: This deserves a big flavoured wine. We love it with a Tawny Port or even Otra Tierra Merlot.

About the Maker: “Brought in up Sardinia, Mario Olianas comes from a strong family of Italian gastronomes. Moving to Leeds in 2001, he quickly set about realising his passion for food – by setting up Italian supper clubs and baking fine foods. Upon hearing about his family’s diversification into cheese-making, however, Mario decided he wanted to create a better Italian cheese than his brothers’.  Getting hold of a small vat, he started making cheese in a specially converted room within his house, following an adapted Pecorino recipe. He uses fresh sheep’s milk which he collects daily from just outside Harrogate, and cultures imported from Italy.”

How to Enjoy: With a full-bodied, big-flavoured wine! This is also a great one for a cheese board. 

Our utmost concern is get you the right cheese in the right condition right to your door. All orders are posted on a next day service so as not to spend too much time in transit. Each package will come with a gel ice pack to keep the temperature in the box as low as possible.
