However, I notice that the stock list is dated Ferbruary 2011 , so you may want to update that!

Tom
was first time there a week or so ago.
Very well stocked bar, great cheese variety & other interesting food.
Wonder if they take lodgers?

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Just back from a buying trip and we've got some real treats including for the first time in switzerland Isle of White Blue, a small soft Guernsey milk blue suggested to me by a Swiss customer. He actually told me that it was the best cheese he has ever tasted so it must be good.

Clotted cream is also back in stock and quite a few goats cheeses from Somerset. The web shop and stock list will be updated tonight or tomorrow and some of the new cheeses will be at the HB market in the morning

Hi Grumpy, if I wanted a few of those 350g stilton in porcelains, could we order them and can you deliver to Geneva ?

Ahhh... so from what i gather, you understand the new cheeses to be at the Hauptbahnhof in the morning, but not the evening

So people better be quick?

Well I only bought 20 of the Isle of White Blue to try them out and I've already sold 8 this morning so yes. (but plenty more of everything else)

It's a bit young at the moment, I think it will improve more in 2 or 3 weeks but still, I think it might be my new personal favourite cheese

We're only stocking the 200gr ones at the mo, we get some bigger ones leading up to Christmas. Price is 29.00 plus 9.50 post. I have a few from last month that need eating this weekend ideally (they will be fine until the end of the month though but they will be much bluer) and these are 20.00 each. I'm sending parcels out tomorrow for delivery Friday.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Our house cheddar, the raw milk Westcombe PDO is on special offer today at the Zurich market, 49.00 / kg down from 55.00. And we're open until 8pm.

We also have a lot of goats cheeses from Somerset and all butter shortbread from the Isle of Mull (made by the son of the chap who makes the fantastic Isle of Mull cheddar)

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

I'm saved! Only yesterday my daughter (6.5) asked, 'Daddy when can I have some cheddar again?'

'Ahem, cheddar is quite difficult to find in Geneva'

She'll eat virtually any cheese, but is missing Keens and proper Debham and Zummmmmerzet - just like her dad!

Not any more! Expect an order presently!

I think it's very cool when young kids have refined palates. Good on her.

He'll change his mind about cheddar soon enough...

Does he hate all cheese or just cheddar? Try some mild firm sheeps milk cheese like a young pecorino, they are generally sweet and nutty and very easy to digest.

I sell one called Duddleswell from West Sussex, 2 years ago a Swiss lady who hated cheese was persuaded to try it. She is now my best customer and even wolfs down raw milk blue cheeses.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

oh we have tried, oh how we have tried! The closest to any cheese he'll have is (shudders), (apologies to forum, god and everyone else out there) cheese strings!!!

So he doesn't get much! We do try and find out mild cheese and different ones, but he just doesn't do cheese - it's not dairy as he will happily drink shed loads of milk, eat ice cream and other dairy stuff. It's just cheese he doesn't like.

Might be down to the fact that he got red all round he face when he tried some keens at 9 months old.... never did me any harm!!!!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

We're at the Zurich HB market today until 8pm, a good place for a beer and to shelter from the rain...... see you later.

An update on our Viadukt market, our stall will be closed for the next 2 Mondays and Tuesdays (18th and 19th and 25th and 26th of July) so we can have a little break.

And finally, I hear Bon Jovi are playing in Zurich tomorrow night and it seems they are fans of British cheese and will be nibbling a few Kg's of the best after the gig.... Sex, Drugs and Exmoor Blue I suppose.

Ask for a meet and greet (with a photo-op)...no? Come on grumpy--it will make you even more famous than you already are.
