Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

My daughter, her wachyawannacallit and I really enjoyed the trip to Schaan last Saturday, twas a beautiful day, however I pigged out with the cheese last night....
Hmm! Toast, Salat, tomatoes, westmorland sauce, cheese, fresh Schnittlauch and onions.

Now I have run out again and seeing that I have finished my stash of Lancashire, I need you to get to Widnau mate.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Thanks Miss Otter, we'll all miss you at the market for beer and cheese on Wednesdays. Come back soon!

Slammer - the Lancashire Crumbly won't be stocked at Schaan and won't be on general offer in Sargans but I have told the counter staff there where it is stored (behind their shop) and that they can get some out for you anytime. I'll try to get some Lancashire "tasty" soon too.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

There's no market in the Zürich HB this week so I'm taking the opportunity to nip to the UK later this week to find some new cheeses. Already on the way are Double Gloucester, Double Berkely and Hereford Hop (great with beer) from the Stinking Bishop stable (which is also coming back), Westcombe PDO "Slow Food" Cheddar from Somerset, Beenleigh and Harbourne Blues from Devon and a few new Scottish cheeses including Blue Monday (mentioned earlier) and Caboc, a soft buttery cheese rolled in oats. All the old regulars will be fully stocked up too including plenty of King Richard III Wensleydale.

Loads of free tasting events booked for April including a tour of some of the Pickwick Pubs to celebrate St George's day, Expat-Expo in Cham and Sunday 24th April I'm back in Bern at the Artplace 88 Gallery for a free beer and cheese tasting day.

If anyone needs a cheese or chutney fix tomorrow, I'm attending a charity fundraiser Coffee Morning in aid of Stepping Stones in Richterswil, ZH from 9.30 - 12.30. Peace Foods will also be there and hand made Jewellery, greetings cards and other gifts will also be on sale. Entry is free. PM me for the address as it is being held in a private home.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Hi Grumpy :-)

We haven't officially moved to ZH yet but on our last visit we ventured into the Wednesday Farmers Market. I have seen this post before so looked out for an obvious English cheese store but couldn't find you.

We are back again this weekend and staying for 3 weeks this time so I'm determined to find you as we are a family of cheese addicts (my 5 year old likes the really strong cheddar). Can you give me some clues to spot your stall and also whether there is a good time to visit with kids (i.e. less busy)

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

If you go to the end of the market near the doors that lead to the trams by the Limmat, on the middle aisle you'll see a big navy blue tent adorned with a Union Jack and another, less aesthetically pleasing, flag with a flower on it or something. Look for a handsome gentleman with a big smile, and a lot of cheese.

There are usually a bunch of Anglo types hanging around, too, so listen out for people talking rubbish in English.

Good luck!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Hi Angelea

we're in the main train station in ZH on the ground floor in the big concourse (you can't miss the market). Our stall is in the centre aisle furthest away from the tracks. Hope the photo helps! (although it will be slightly different next week as we have some new display shelves coming)

Busy times are 12.00 - 14.00 and 17.00 - 19.00, other times there's usually time for a chat and you can taste all the cheese you like, and next week we should have at least 25 on offer!

We know you meant Union Flag, not Union Jack; we'll say no more on the matter.

Don't worry. The first time trying to find it I was walking past and might have missed it if Grumpy hadn''t called out to me.

I chose Jack deliberately: Not all our colonial cousins are aware of the correct name of the flag.

Mr GG

As the proud possessor and subsequent digester of the cheesy comestible
illustrated below, I'd just like to say that it's one of the best "flavoured"
cheeses I've ever had the good fortune to nibble on.
Makes one proud to be Scottish! (Well, OK, even more proud...! )

Attachment 13583

The smoked garlic flavour is subtle, yet definitely there; it's dangerously
more-ish, especially when accompanied by a wee dram.

Please bring back lots more of these on your epic trip to Blighty.

Oh, and can you end the current endless discussion: Is the garlic smoked
then added to the cheese, or is the garlic added and the whole cheese smoked?

WJ

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Thanks for the feedback WJ. I too am not a fan at all of flavoured cheeses but these are the same raw milk cheddar as the standard Isle of Mull, just reformed with some delicate natural additions, and I agree they are pretty nice! The one you ask about does indeed have a little smoked garlic but then the small round is also gently smoked before being waxed.

More coming soon!

Hi Arthur. I'll be hosting a tasting and sales event near Bern on Sunday April 24th at Artplace 88, hope you can make it there.

Other events in April include the first Rappi Ploughmans this (Easter) Saturday and a tour of some of the Pickwick Pubs for St George's Day.

I was in the UK last week and signed up a few more cheese makers to our cause and brought some back with me for lots of events during April. 42 different cheeses in total, our highest amount so far.

I'll bring about 25 of them to the market at the ZH HB on Wednesday including BIO Stilton, Shropshire, 4 different cheddars, Stinking Bishop and the new May Hill Green, Double Gloucester, Hereford Hop, 3 different smoked cheeses (including the new Godminster), and quite a few rare Scottish cheeses including Caboc, Scotlands oldest style of cheese. It's a small log, like French butter and rolled in oats. Seriosuly rich and dying out for oatcakes and a single malt. And King Richard III Wensleydale is back, hopefully I've bought enough to last this time.

If there are any cheeses in particular from our PDF stock list that you would like to try, let me know and I will include them.

Oh, I almost forgot. I have a few Cadbury's Creme Eggs too. First come first served I'm afraid

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

We have a new retailer of our cheese in Switzerland this week. Markthalle Trivisiano in Winterthur will be stocking 4 cheeses from today, on the 8th May we will have a big in store tasting when they will increase to 10 cheeses.

I've just up-dated our home page with some of our new cheeses too.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

If there's any Caboc left, Grumpy, could you save a piece for me? I meant to ask when I was in this morning and forgot. Lovely stuff that is.
