Lancashire cheese, a crumbly British cow's-milk cheese, is considered one of the premier products of that county. Centered approximately 30 miles north of Manchester, many local farms produce this famous cheese. Depending on its aging period, it can range from extremely soft to semi-hard, but is generally crumbly and creamy. Similar to Caerphilly cheese, it is a good cooking cheese, and a favorite for Welsh rarebit. It is often featured in supermarket cheese counters, although it (like most other cheeses) tastes better and more "genuine" from the many farms that produce it. It consistently wins U.K. cheese awards, as well.
