Lord of The Hundreds is named after the Hundreds Knoll, a mound where the Saxons would gather to pay their tithes and bring cases to magistrates. The mound was behind the house of the cheese's inventor, in Aldridge, Walsall, West Midlands, UK. Lord of The Hundreds Cheese was created by James and Pat Aldridge of the Eastside Cheese Company, near Godstone, Surrey, England. It is now made by Cliff and Julie Dyball, of the Traditional Cheese Dairy Company at Stonegate, East Sussex.
This unpasteurized ewes' milk cheese is sourced from the milk of the neighboring Boydell's flock of ewes. Like many English cheeses, this raw-milk cheese is vegetarian. Matured until it takes on a dry, crumbly texture, Lord of the Hundreds has a slightly sweet sheep's milk flavor, with a grassy, nutty finish. Not overly salty, it is perfect for an afternoon snack with pears, sliced into a salad, or melted in a fennel gratin.
