Maffra Red Leicester is a handmade cheese produced by Maffra Cheese Company using fresh milk provided by their farm's Holstein Fresians. It has a tightly knit texture and buttery, mellow flavour. The colour of the pate is thanks to the natural dye found in the seeds of the South American Annatto plant. This cheese tastes delicious with celery, fig jam and a dry white.
