OMG! Argus, really, I am SO SO SO sad to have missed you. Those scones. W-O-W. Amazing. Thank you so much. You showed up my cookies like it was nobody's business...
Aawwww... geez. I'm sorry I missed your lovely chewy cookies. Thanks, glad you liked it (not being English, I had little idea how a scone is supposed to taste or be like texture-wise). You missed the Bollywood male model/actor dressed in black accompanied by a super-shiny black dog?!

THERE WERE SCONES MADE BY ARGUS?????
I did mention it in FB, didn't I? (After you said you liked the Swiss cafe owner quote.) Hush, baby, there will be a next time.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Thanks Argus for bringing those scones, they disappeared really quickly with the rasberry and vanilla jam and clotted cream. And to Mirfield for coming over from Basel with a shopping list, to Mathnut for helping us clear up, JLF for being a great barmaid, (all right, beer fetcher from the bar type bar girl), my new assitant who picked up the ropes really quickly, and for all you EFers who were gentle with him.....

sorry if I've missed you off, that was a very, very long day and the Red Bull is now finally wearing off. Remember, no market next Wednesday, next up is the Rappi Ploughmans on the 21st.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Thanks to Argus for providing the delicious scones. You shall be rewarded in heaven. Overhearing JLF and friends, I think that assistant is causing quite a stir. Cracking move to have two ever so handsome Real Men offering cheese samples to the people of Zurich. He looked like he was enjoying it...

The Perl Las was the most exquisite cheese I've tasted. More!

He did look like he was enjoying himself didn't he? That is, of course, minus the hot and sweaty climate of the HB last night.

And ditto the Perl Las. One taste was definitely not enough.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

You're all very welcome. Glad the scones went down well as I was worried they were overbaked when I saw their brown bottoms (not talking about you, HashBrown).

Perl Las?! Why did neither of the Dishy Cheese Men let me have a taste of it!? I could've bought some, ate it all by myself and let the returning other half have the Godminster puck (none the wiser, of course).

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Back at the HB market again today, drinks at the stall from 6 - 8 (not sure if Argus is bringing scones again though, but I do have clotted cream).

About 20 cheeses today including a new to Switzerland cheddar, Tremaines BIO, the only cheddar cheese made in Sussex so I have been told.

Massive delivery arriving at the weekend with lots of new cheeses ready for the new Viadukt market opening the following Saturday.

This weekend I'll be near Fribourg at the St Ursen Highland Games.

Sorry, Grumpy, not in ZH this week; going to Lucerne instead. I have my travelling/train quota like all good eco-citizens.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

In my professional capacity as chief cheese taster, I am sorry to inform you that, in my opinion, the Mull is better than the Arran version (raw milk as opposed to pasteurised is the main factor).

But I am sure you will enjoy it nevertheless! Thanks for all your custom and hope to see you "up there" on a cheese buying trip next year.

So..... the Viadukt opens Saturday and to celebrate we have a massive new delivery with many "new to Switzerland" cheeses as well as many old favourites. Cornish Yarg, Wild Garlic Yarg, Golden Cenarth, Swaledale cow and sheep (the original version of Wensleydale, a much more grown up cheese) as well as a mini waxed Swaledale with Theakstons Old Peculiar (strong dark Yorkshire ale), Driftwood and Little Wallop (wrapped in vine leaves and washed with Somerset cider brandy) goat cheeses from the same stable as Rachel and for the first time some mini (2 kg) blue stiltons as well as Stilton in ceramic pots.....

Some of the above will be at the HB market tomorrow (Wednesday that is). Hope to see you for a beer later in the evening!

Oops. That is one that didn't make it over. But a Little Wallop has your name on it. Just had some for a late supper and it is sublime.

Ah-ha... that would tip the scales. and no mistake

Just in passing, is the Little Wallop the one from that ex-Blur bloke? If so, yep, it's very good

Quaff a beer for me tomorrow night, and Good Luck for the big opening from both me and Her Outdoors

Yup, Alex james' first creation and it is very good. He also created the Blue Monday which you should be able to find up your way.

I had some of the same and it was the wild garlic Cornish Yarg, if I'm not mistaken. Less mad garlic infusion and more subtle flavours on the 'top' note.

Raw milk cheese rocks.
