Directions
  • Mix the cream cheese, Cheddar, Worcestershire, lemon zest, cayenne and a few grinds of pepper together in a medium bowl until thoroughly combined.

  • Lay a large piece of plastic wrap on a work surface and put the cheese mixture on top. Use the plastic wrap to form it into a 6-inch log. Refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
