I'll try to remember to bring some... it may be under the counter so you'll have to ask!
Cool!

You'll have a few beers on offer too? You normally do, iirc ...

They only make it once a year, with the summer milk, and we only got 10Kg, so no, only for the Rachelless Mr Rustyness.
I am not sure I am worthy of such an honour and privilege but I, of course, gladly accept. When should I call (I presume, at the Viadukt) to collect my personal and exclusive comfort gift?

There are a few small chunks at the HB now, I will be there from 6 with a fresh supply. And yes, you are very much worthy of it!

We also have Lanark Blue from Scotland at the HB today as well as Isle of Mull extra mature Cheddar. The Lanark is often described as the Scottish Roquefort and amongst my Swiss customers as the "Kilt Lifter". But the cheese we have today is younger and is made with summer milk making it much gentler. If you think that you don't like sheep or blue cheeses, this may change your mind.

And use the Isle of Mull to make the Scottish Fondue, with black beer and whisky.

Will the IOM with smoked garlic be making a reappearance anytime soon? That stuff was the dog's nadgers.

I've just ordered it for December. Try crumbling it on a simple pizza or into pasta next time.

We have 2 or 3 different beers today including Theakstons XB. I may try to bring some Marstons Pedigree over at 6 too.

I probably will not be able to make it to the HB market today, unfortunately. I can perhaps find some time to saunter up to the Viadukt in the next days. Otherwise, next week's market?

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

I'm in Winterthur today at the gourmets paradise Markthalle Trivisiano at Marktgasse 25. I'll be here until 4pm giving a free tasting of about 8 of our best sellers. Be sure to say hello!

Would a free chunk of Corra Linn, our new hard raw sheeps milk cheese from Scotland be suitable compensation?
Thanks again for the cheese and the chat yesterday. Liked the idea of the cheddar raclette and fondue. Will have to try that some time this winter.

Nice to see you again... I'll post the Scottish Fondue recipe again soon!

Some of our cheese is now in Zug at the L'Ultimo Bacio wholefood shop. It opened today on Mettalstrasse 9a and is the biggest of their 3 stores. The other 2 are in Wipkingen (Zurich) and Winterthur. All 3 have our Cropwell Bishop BIO Stilton and our best selling Godminster BIO Cheddar.

The new one in Zug also has a coffee bar and all 3 have pretty extended opening hours (Wipkingen is open 7.00 - 23.00 6 days a week!). Be sure to say hello from me if you do go in.

I thought this store was pretty useful before (mentioned here), but now with British cheese and (non-British) coffee - even better!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

A busy weekend ahead for us and a few places where you can stock up on cheese....

this morning I'm at the American Womens Club in Zurich monthly coffee morning with Godminster, Shropshire Blue and loads of freshly baked bagels.

Saturday we will be at Moevenpick Wine in Zug from about 11.00 - 16.00 and..

at Markthalle Trivisiano in Winterthur doing a free tasting of our exclusive Skeffington Vintage Port which they will now be stocking for us. Of course there will also be free tasting of our cheeses too.

The Viadukt market will of course also be fully open for cheese, bagels and our new table of freshly baked goodies such as Muffins and Crumpets.

Do you think Papa Goose will be welcome with all those American Women?

Or do think you can handle this one alone, Grumps?

You'll actually be meeting Mrs GG... but I'll warn her that you have a reputation to uphold.

I've managed up until now, and I do like a challenge. And anyway, PG would distract the girls away from my cheese.

I could see how that could be the case.

By the way, i was too lazy to make the usual sauce out of the Shropshire Blue bought yesterday, for our tortelloni today, so just crumbled it over the top.
This was possibly even better!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Today is the last Zurich HB market this year and we'll be having a drink at our stall from about 6.30, if we get told off, so be it (I doubt it as the manageress will be half cut by then). We'll have loads of Gaymers Cider as well as some Sam Smiths and some Batemans Dark Lord. Please come by and say hello!

At the Viadukt we now stock Skeffington Vintage Ports - Skeffington is a very small Port house and we have bought the entire available stock for Switzerland, and it's selling fast so stock up soon for Christmas.

We have the 2000, 2003, 2007 and 2009 vintages, full bottles are from 69.50 - 82.50 and halves from 44.00 - 48.00. 2003 was an exceptional year for Port and the Skeffington is fantastic. We normally have one of the vintages open on Saturday afternoon for tasting and we will be doing a couple of major tasting days leading up to Christmas where you can try them all as well as our other ports.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Our web shop has been updated with new stock including some great value Christmas Tasting Packs from SFr 35.00 - 120.00 and you can order individual cheeses on the main shop page here

We are also selling a basic range of cheeses together with Port and our famous Hot Toddies at Rapperswil Christmas Market and at the Venite Christmas market in Luzern (the small one in the Kappelplatz, not in the main station), both markets are open until Sunday.

For a full range of cheeses though come to the Viadukt market in Zurich (tramstop Damweg for trams 4 and 13... also plenty of short term parking down the side of the market). We are open until 8pm from now until the 23rd December... Sunday 18th until 6pm and Saturday 24th until 4pm.

I have about 40 different artisan British cheeses in stock, our usual best sellers including the Godminster cheddar (loads of hearts in stock this year) with plenty of specials including:

Montgomery's and Keane's cheddars, Lincolnshire Poacher Vintage, Hawes mature Wensleydale (and some great fruitcake to go with it), Cornish Yarg, Stinking Bishop, 3 different Stiltons from Cropwell Bishop including 200gr and 350gr cheeses in ceramic pots (these arrive Friday), Appleby's Cheshire, from North Yorkshire comes Yorkshire Blue, Buffalo Blue, Monks Folly (a mini Dolls House Wensleydale), Katy's White Lavender (sheeps cheese with err Lavender), Rydale, Old Yorke... and a few more I think..., Coolea and Cashel Blue from Ireland, Isle of Mull raw milk cheddar (also mini ones in wax including with smoked garlic) - the Isle of Mull BTW makes an amazing Scottish Fondue with black beer and whisky....

I also have a big range of excellent Ports, priced from 16.50 for half bottles of tawny up to about 90.00 for some Skeffington Vintages.... together with a ceramic pot of Stilton, these make great gifts of course....

And tomorrow night (Thursday 15th) I am hosting drinks at my stall for EFers, we can drink here until late and I'll have some excellent white and red wines going cheap.

I think that's all for now, if you'd like special gift packs making up for clients or friends etc, get in touch.

Thanks everyone here for supporting us in our 4th year!

Woohoo, Wensleydale time at last!
Is it available at the Luzern market as well? Otherwise we'll be heading up to Zurich, weather permitting.
