(Hard, pasteurised cow's milk, traditional rennet)
Leidenkaas was developed to utilise the low fat byproducts of butter production around Leiden, Holland. Now the cheeses, with a dense sprinkling of cumin seeds and a distinctive rind, are the region's most famous export. This young example has a springy texture and sweet flavour well balanced with the earthy flavours of the cumin.
