Re: The Cheese Club: New Cheese Thread

Re: The Cheese Club: New Cheese Thread

Just back from the UK with some new and interesting cheeses:

Lanark Blue, a very strong blue sheeps cheese from Scotland
Maisies Kebuck, a strong hard cows cheese from the same dairy
Shropshire Blue and Organic Stilton, this time from Cropwell Bishop dairy. I am buying direct now and the price has come down a lot.
Rachel, a hard mild goats cheese which is a real winner. the cheese maker named it after an ex-girlfriend. Apparently she was sweet, curvey and slightly nutty.
Stinking Bishop, so called as it is washed in Perry made from Stinking Bishop pears
Blacksticks Blue from Lancashire
Mrs Kirkhams Lancashire
Duddleswell, a mild sheeps cheese from West Sussex
Some mini Cornish and Garlic Yargs from Cornwall
Mature Waxed Wensleydale, Isle of Mull Cheddar and finally the Champion Irish Cheese, Coolea Extra Mature from Co Cork as well as plenty more Sparkenhoe Red Leicester and Godminster Organic Cheddar

Also we are now stocking some Chutney's from the Hawkshead Relish Company.

Not all cheeses will be on the web site as some are too delicate to ship overnight but they will all be at the Highland Games in Fehraltorf next weekend and most will be at the next Rappi Brewery Ploughmans and Cheese day on the 9th August.

The The Pie Shop in Zurich will also be stocking some of these from next week.

I'm just about to leave on a buying trip and thought "why not?" - I could get some just for you, but I doubt customs would let me through with them. They would have trouble accepting them as cheese I guess.

Is it the hard cheese that you stock? It is said by some to be similar to parmesan.

By the way, Duddleswell is in East Sussex.

Re: The Cheese Club: New Cheese Thread

Thanks Rod, Duddleswell village is in East Sussex but the dairy that makes it (High Weald) is in West Sussex - not sure why they call it Duddleswell... I'll ask.

The cheese is hard and does taste like a very young Parmesan, quite sharp too.

My understanding is that Duddleswell Cheese was produced from milk from sheep reared around Duddleswell on Ashdown Forest. I guess that it now takes milk from around the area but retains the original name. Horsted Keynes is just a few miles away from Duddleswell. I grew up very close to there. I still live in East Sussex but don't often get up to that part of the County.

I get a good selection of cheeses from Middle Farm, not far from Brighton. They also have the National collection of Cider and Perry, with over 100 types available for tasting. http://www.middlefarm.com/

Re: The Cheese Club: New Cheese Thread

Hi all,

We just visited Mike (thanks to EF, we discovered we live 5 minutes up the mountain from him - yay for us!) and just like many other posters we wanted to sing Mike and Astrid's praises as well! We had a wonderful afternoon tasting some of his fantastic cheeses, mainly cheddars and some of the Shropshire blue - all of which were exceptional. Of course the great tasting cheeses didn't make decision time any easier, but since we're only a short wanderweg away we know we will always have good cheese on tap.

Thanks so much to English Forum and to Mike & Astrid!

Kadie

Re: The Cheese Club: New Cheese Thread

Thanks Kadie, it was nice having you both!

I'm been so busy buying new cheese and attending events this summer that I forgot about this thread. So, rather than list everything we have, here a link to our stock list PDF (it should open in a separate page with Acrobat)

http://www.cheeseclub.ch/en/Resources/cheeselist.pdf

Forthcoming cheesy events include this Saturdays (20th Sept) Ploughmans lunch at the Pie Shop in Zurich and another cheesy day at the Rappi Brewery on October 18th.

That's just a few days before we open our first shop in Thawil.... more info and an invite to a mega opening party soon.

Re: The Cheese Club: New Cheese Thread

Loads of new cheeses arriving in a couple of weeks, will post a list then. In the meantime a great article in the San Fransisco Chronicle about matching beer with cheese.

"..... beer excels with cheese because of the harmonies and contrasts the beverage brings to the match.

"With wine, you're almost always working just with contrasts," says Oliver. "That's not as satisfying as also working in some harmonies."

Harmonic convergence happens when a sharp, bitter, hoppy India Pale Ale meets a piquant, high-acid cheddar; or when a porter with its caramel and coffee notes encounters a smooth and sweet aged Gruyere."

Re: The Cheese Club: New Cheese Thread

...cool article from the newspaper I grew up with and delivered to the neighborhood for 8 yrs! Look forward to your next shipment of cheese.

Does anyone know if there are any IPAs brewed in Zurich area?

IPA = India Pale Ale, a type of English ale that would travel well (originally of course to India) and now one of our favourite tipples!

Re: The Cheese Club: New Cheese Thread

Last orders for standard overnight delivery of cheese is next Tuesday 16th. We can send some out the following Monday but only by express which is 5 francs extra.

I have put together the following good value Christmas tasting pack:

600 grams total of 3 British Cheeses traditionally served at Christmas: Cropwell Bishop Blue Stilton, Fowlers Sage Derby and Hawes Wensleydale. Our Christmas pack comes complete a jar of award winning Apple & Lavendar Jelly from Hawkshead Relishes

Price 35.00 CHF + delivery (9.50 standard), or you can collect from the shop in Thalwil, of course. The Sage Derby is a real surprise if you've only ever had the fluorescent green marble stuff in supermarkets.

Other tasting packs on this page. We can of course make up any gift packs, please let me know what cheese and quantities.

Re: The Cheese Club: New Cheese Thread

We have just had a big delivery of some great new cheeses including Westcombe Cheddar PDO, Devon Oke, Ticklemore Goat (my new favourite!), St Giles, Ashdown Forrester, Dunsyre Blue (sister cheese to the famous Lanark Blue) and Celtic Promise and we welcome back some old favourites from last year, Snowdonia Black Bomber, Godminster BIO cheddar, Isle of Mull cheddar, Gorwydd Caerphilly and Stinking Bishop.

I hope to have some of these in the web shop after the weekend but please e-mail me if you would like to reserve some. The Ticklemore and Black Bomber in particular will not last long!

We also have 2 great value Valentines gift packs for him and her (well, strong and mild, I know plenty of girls who like to be bowled off their feet by a strong whiffy cheese). 500 grams of 3 different cheeses with chutney or jelly for SFr. 35.00 each plus delivery, or you can collect from the shop.

Also, good news for customers of the Brit Shop, from next week they will be stocking our very popular Godminster Organic Waxed cheddar (I've yet to find anyone who doesn't like it) so you can combine quality cheese and other grocery shopping with just one delivery charge. More of our cheeses may follow later in the year if the demand is high enough.

Finally, our Private Tasting room is finished behind the shop in Thalwil. Contact me to arrange a private group (min 8 people) to try a big range of cheeses with crackers and chutneys. Prices are from SFr. 35.00 including wine, beer or BIO fruit cordials and tasting notes. You also get a 10% discount off purchases on the night. I've done 6 groups so far, mostly with locals, and they seem to be very popular.



Happy Cheese Munching!
