Spenwood is a hard, pressed cheese made from unpasteurised ewes' milk. Reminiscent of Pecorino, its pale yellow paste has a smooth, dense texture and a sweet, slightly nutty flavour. Spenwood is produced by Anne Wigmore of Village Maid Cheese, based near Spencer Wood in Berkshire, from where this cheese takes its name. Matured for six months, it is perfect for grating over pasta or risotto. Spenwood won Super Gold at the World Cheese Awards 2017. More information >
With wonderful nutty flavours, Spenwood is the English Pecorino - great to nibble and also use in cooking.
