Made with pasteurized cow’s milk, Leyden has a firm composition. The addition of cumin seeds (responsible for its tangy flavor and spicy aroma) distinguish it from other Dutch cheeses. With its flavorful cumin seeds, this cheese makes a memorable lunch or appetizer platter. Serve slices of Leyden with cold-cuts, spicy-sweet honey mustard and a good dark bread such as rye or pumpernickel. These can be served warm or cold and topped with slices of ripe tomato and parsley or fresh arugula. Serve with Rieslings or try it with Clay Avenue Pear Wine. It’s also great with German or Belgian beer.
