Leyden cheese is a close cousin of Edam, made from rich, skimmed milk that gives the cheese a firm texture. The addition of cumin and carraway seeds gives leyden cheese a uniquely spicy flavor. The cumin seeds in the cheese draw whey from the leyden curds, drying the cheese as it ages in wax. The result is a crumbly cheese with a fragrant and zesty flavor and a buttery base. This traditional Dutch cheese is inspired by the era of the spice trade. Try this cheese with a dark, bitter chocolate or a soft and chewy caramel.
