  1. In a food processor, combine the Cheddar cheese, soured cream, butter, horseradish, hot mustard, hot pepper sauce, garlic and port wine. Pulse until smooth. You can use a potato masher in a large bowl but it will take longer.
  2. Line a bowl with cling film and fill with the cheese mixture. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Toast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan over medium heat just until fragrant, about 3 minutes. Gather the cling film around the cheese mixture and form into a ball. Remove the cling film and roll the ball in sesame seeds to coat. Place in the centre of a serving plate and surround with your favourite crackers.


If your local supermarket doesn't stock black sesame seeds, you can find them in Oriental speciality stores.
