This wiki cheese category page contains pictures and information on cheeses produced in the English county of Leicestershire.
Leicestershire is a landlocked county in the English Midlands. It takes its name from the City of Leicester, traditionally its administrative centre, although the City of Leicester unitary authority is today administered separately from the rest of Leicestershire. The county borders Derbyshire to the north-west, Nottinghamshire to the north, Rutland to the east, Warwickshire to the south-west, Staffordshire to the west, Lincolnshire to the north-east, and Northamptonshire to the south-east. Stilton, Red Leicester cheese, and the pork pie are three of Leicestershire's most famous contributions to English cuisine.
