Named after the village of Spencers Wood in Berkshire where it originated, Spenwood is a hard-pressed cheese made from unpasteurized ewe’s milk. This cheese undergoes a six-month maturation process, developing a natural rind. Initially boasting a well-developed nutty flavour, extended ageing transforms it into a harder and more piquant cheese. Spenwood serves as an excellent substitute for Parmesan in pasta and risotto recipes.
