It's certainly worthy of it's own thread. Then again so is Belgian Chocolate!

Stilton (http://www.stiltoncheese.com/) - kick arse blue cheese. Get a bottle of nice port and some crackers or something. Mmmmmm.

Get yourself down to Wells market, and pick up the Sturminster "Extra vintage" Cheddar.

It's about 5 years old, and is practically a weapon. You can feel it stripping the skin off your hard palate as you eat. Fantastic stuff- a classic evil and sweaty Cheddar.

Cheshire's my favourite. Quite a sharp taste but crumbly as hell.

Not good for toasting though.

I don't like cheddar really, I prefer blue cheeses and brie. I do like that white crumbly one though- is it wensleydale?

It's not that bad - it's got the 3rd largest castle in Europe and one of the biggest and best indoor climbing walls in the world!

So poo!:p

Cheddar. I ate some earlier, and then attributed the stomach pains to hunger, so ate some more. That was a stupid idea.

Reminds me of a certain young lady from the Isle of Man I used to know.

The ironically named Isle of Man.

There's that cheese shop in covent garden near the diesel store and it smells absolutely fucking foul. I saw two office lady types actually running past it with their noses covered last time i was there.

Found their webby actually http://www.nealsyarddairy.co.uk/ourshops.html

I seem to recall a vox pops in whic they were looking for the worst smells and they got people to smell various scientifically distilled smells. About a third of people who smelt the vomit smell thought it was cheese.

Cornish Yarg- one of the few cheeses that sounds like it should be in a fantasy novel.

Pasteurised cow's milk semi-hard cheese. Nettle covering produces distinctive rind. Natural grey, white and green moulds often present due to natural mould ripening during maturation process.

Flavour, aroma and texture: A young cheese with a fresh, faintly lemony taste and unique flavour derived from nettles. A subtle lactic smell, with the nettles imparting a delicate vegative aroma. Creamy under the crust, yet firm and slightly crumbly in the centre.

Cornish Yarg has no GMO ingredients, is suitable for vegetarians and is made of pasteurised milk, It contains no nuts.

To keep, wrap the cheese in paper or cling film. Store at 5 degrees or below. Remove from fridge 1 hour before eating the cheese. The rind is edible. "


I love Neal's Yard Dairy. That feculent urinous aroma, ammoniacal heaven....

Interesting. I've tried Cornish Yarg just a few months back. Didn't particularly notice any mould though. Had I it would have put me off since I've never found a veined cheese I've liked yet. Maybe the often present mould gave it a miss that time ;)

Didn't try the rind. Cheese was ok though, not cheddar, but made a pleasant change.
