Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Glad to see you'll be selling your excellent products and yummy sandwiches at the next stand up comedy night in Zurich on June 11th. I can't think of a better combination for a night out than plenty of cheese, laughs, good beer and partying.

Well, Kristin Scott Thomas and a jacuzzi would really round the night off, I suppose, but I'll settle for cheese and Arthur Smith...

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Cheers Uncle Max. I did our first Funny Laundry event last Friday and everyone said it was a great idea. The theme from us is "Pub Grub" baguettes - BIG baguettes (the bread last Friday was not quite right, too chewy, the next ones will be better) stuffed with mature cheddar onions and chutney, Red Leicester with Chillililli, Stilton with grapes and walnuts and maybe ham with Colemans mustard (some people don't actually like cheese ) and I hope I'll have a batch of chilli pickled eggs ready in time too. (and the Clotted Cream Fudge went down very well too).



Back at the Zürich HB market today from 10 - 8, in Vaud on Saturday afternoon, above Funny Laundry next Friday evening, Gumligen near Bern on Sunday 13th afternoon and all day in Winterthur at Markthalle Trivisiano on Saturday 19th June.

The Goldilocks and Black Eyed Susan soft Organic Jersey milk cheeses are almost gone but plenty of the usual favourites including Exmoor Blue raw jersey - for me the best blue cheese in the world - and it's stronger brother Partridge's Blue for the braver amongst you. We've also had a big batch of a more mature Westcombe PDO "Slow Food" cheddar - the last batch was a tad mild for most people, hope this goes down better, and more Clotted Cream.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Hi GG

Nice to meet you last weekend in Basel at the expat expo. Thanks for the cheese!

I got extra brownie points with the Mrs for her birthday extras. Hope you had a good day off and the cold is receding.

Will definitely be on the look out for that red blue cheese when we next cross paths!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

As Arthur Smith is unable to do the comedy shows next week, looks like we'll be denied the melted Kristen Scott Thomas feast on Friday. Don't be denied, though, folks, as the ridiculously tasty cheddar GG sells at the Zurich main station market on Wednesday is a worthy consolation.

Also have to compliment the fiery ginger syrup he has there. Anyone suffering with hayfever / motion sickness should give it a go.

That ginger cordial is great mixed with hot, cold and sparkling water. It also makes a great ginger beer by adding a few drops to lager and mixed 1 part to 2 parts whisky, the best ever Whisky Mac - it's Scottish medicine at its best.

I'm heading down to Vaud tomorrow afternoon for some Chopin and Cheese, if you can't make it, I've just updated our web shop with Goldilocks, Clotted Cream Fudge and a couple of new tasting packs including "Cheddar Lovers".

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

That Blackcurrant version of the cordial I took I tried was lovely, even the Swissies at work were suitably impressed... not surprising given there's about 3 choices of cordial here, and all have more E's than a Norfolk barn rave.

It's chuffing strong though, you only need about 7ml to provide enough for 500ml of water, as well as power an internal combustion engine. Will be picking up another soon.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

At the HB market today we have 3 beers from the Rappi Bier Factory: Rapi Gold, Blackbier and XXA Extra Strong Ale. Not sure if they'll last until the nuptial celebrations here at 6 though.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

By the way Grumpy, thanks for the cheese package you sent me. I'll be putting in a repeat order soon as the red leicester I bought at the Expo went the same evening in one go (and I can't even say I shared it )

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

You may have to go to Jelmoli to help train their staff in the ways of British cheese and especially blue cheeses.

I went to Jelmoli to buy some of your cheese. I bought some Caerphilly, Godmister and some Shropshire Blue.

The lady who served me heaved and puffed as she was forced to deal with the alien produce. She proceeded to trim the Shropshire on every side, obviously because she thought it was mouldy. I wanted to ask if I could simply have the trimmings, free, since they were going in the bin. she must have binned at least 200+ hundred grams.

Sacrilegious, yes - but they have no idea about these cheeses.

I hope they pay you based on what you delivered and not what is sold.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Cheers Traubert. Was the lady late 50's or so with grey hair? if so, she's always a bit grumpy. There's another 2 ladies, both blond who are much more friendly and speak at least some English. We will advise them though about not needing to cut the rind of Shropshire, it is edible and some people prefer it to the actual cheese.

BTW, you can use the rind of Shropshire and Stilton (and other dry rinded cheeses), tied up in a muslin bag, to flavour vegetable soups.

Wow, that looks gorgeous and I see that it comes from Alchitbuie - is that part of the Summer Isles hotel? I stayed there a few years ago and it was fabulous and they were starting in ecological food production at the time.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Grumpy, what was the name of the cheddar put out in little cubes last night? It was very creamy but still strong and I'd like to get some.

Thanks!

Not sure which one, the softer one would have been Godminster (in the burgundy wax), the other one was Westcombe, the smallest of the 3 cheddar farms recognised by Slow Food. I'm guessing you mean the Godminster, try them both next time you're around.

To echo mimi1981: thanks for the cheese package. The red leicester is fantastic and the others disappeared over the weekend too. Looks like I may turn into a cheesy person after all.

We worked out it was Godminster, and clearly it has a lot of fans!

It is also on sale at Jelmoli in ZH, Markthalle Trivisiano in Winterthur, A Slice of Home in Thun, Ospelt in Schaan and nationwide through Britshop and our own web shop - and it will be in a specialist cheese shop in Basel from next month. It's also being served tonight at a dinner at the British Ambassadors residence in Bern . There will be plenty of it today too though at our market at the Zurich HB.



A quick reminder, we will have a British "Pub Grub" stall at the Zurich HB throughout the Zurifest this coming weekend. Our infamous Whisky Rarebits, cheese & pickle baps, Chilli Pickled Eggs and Spaceys fantastic pies will be served to eat there and a good selection of British and Rappi beers and Single Malt miniatures. See you there!
