Lighter Cheddar from Tuxford and Tebbutt’s

Vegetarian Suitable

As many of you already know, The Lady travels the United States setting up Murray’s Cheese Shops inside Kroger Stores. It’s a dream job for a cheese nerd, which The Lady is, and one that she greatly enjoys… The Man and me… not so much… when she travels we miss her… The Man gets grumpy, forgets to feed me and that “beck and call” thing… well I just can’t seem to wrap him around my paw the way I can The Lady… humankinds can be so complicated about the simplest things… but I digress…

Last year the oh-so-cheesy and cool Liz Thorpe headed to England to explore the English Cheese Mines and while tasting Cheddars she discovered that Tuxford and Tebbutt (makers of one of the world’s great Stiltons) had cracked the “Lighter Cheddar” code and created a reduced fat Cheddar that tastes full-flavored… do you know how difficult and accomplishment that is???

The Lady and I eat a lot of cheese and pretty much nine times out of ten when we eat reduced fat cheeses, we are sorely disappointed… there’s a reason folks like full-fat cheese… it tastes better…

But Lighter Cheddar from Tuxford and Tebbutt is a delightful exception to that old rule… “remove the fat; remove the flavor”… this cheese is delish and has 30% less fat that regular cheddar… how do they do that??? I have no idea… but it makes no difference to moi and shouldn’t to you either…

This Lighter Cheddar is tasty, sweet and nutty… just the way The Lady and I like our Cheddars…

I give Tuxford and Tebbutt’s Lighter Cheddar 3 Paws out of 4 Paws (cause that’s all I’ve got).

Serving Suggestions: The Lady would be proud to serve this cheddar on any cheese plate but she also plans to use this one in her next grilled cheese combination… stay tuned… This cheese melts well and can make your next mac n cheese perfect and a 30% healthier…

Wine Pairing: How about a red blend from 14 Hands? It’s Called Hot to Trot.

Beer Pairing: Brooklyn Brown
