The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

About 9 months ago the Cheese Club stopped stocking any cheese that wasn't British, so we have decided to change the name to the British Cheese Centre of Switzerland.

If you don't already know us, we import only the very best British farmhouse cheeses. At any time we have between 20 and 40 different cheeses in stock (that's more than most cheese shops in the UK) as well as lots of gourmet crackers, oatcakes, chutney's and jellies.

As well as selling from our stall at the Zürich HB Wednesday market, we send cheese parcels out by post every Thursday to arrive with you on Friday morning (we use Priority Post and haven't had any problems so far). Delivery charge is CHF 9.50 and free for orders over CHF 120.00 - many customers group orders with colleagues at work to get free delivery. We also have our 9 best sellers always in stock at the Jelmoli Gourmet Factory in Zurich. More outlets around Switzerland will be coming soon.

We also arrange and take part in events all over Switzerland. These consist of cheese suppers and Ploughmans lunches at Spiffing Ales and the Rappi Bier Factory and some free cheese tasting events at places such as Orrel Füssli English book shop in Zurich (next one there this Saturday July 4th from 11.00 - 17.00) and the Moevenpick Wine shops. The tastings are free and we always serve the cheese with wine or ale (again free). You can of course buy cheese to take home on these days, but it is not expected! Other events already booked are the Highland Games at Fehraltorf & Fribourg, Expat-Expo in Zurich, Geneva & Luzern and the Christmas markets in Luzern and Rapperswil.

Some other things we do that you may not know:

• Catering for parties & Apéros at your home, company or other venues - anything from 8 - 250 we have handled so far

• Educational and fun workshops pairing our cheese with Swiss wine, British Ale, Single Malt whiskey etc

• "Cheesy Wheels" - we bring our mobile cheese counter to your company, club or school, again, free tastings and sales.

• For English teachers and language schools, we can work with you to prepare a lesson based around a British cheese tasting. These are very popular with the students and they get to learn new vocabulary and something about British food and culture. We have done most of these as the last lesson in a term.

• Wholesale to shops, restaurants and hotels.

Finally, if you want to keep fully up-dated on what we are doing and where (I don't post all our events on EF), either send me an e-mail to register for our regular Newsletter and "New Cheese Alerts" or become a fan on our new Facebook page - you don't have to become a "friend" so all your private details stays private.

Thanks to all of our regular customers on English Forum, and hope to meet you soon!
