Woohoo, Wensleydale time at last!
Is it available at the Luzern market as well? Otherwise we'll be heading up to Zurich, weather permitting.
Only at the Viadukt I'm afraid, we're also open this Sunday. Thomas Hoe Aged Red Leicester though will be at Luzern as well as at Rapperswil Christmas markets this weekend and Saturday all 3 markets will have toasted cheddar and chutney bagels and bagels to go. And the whisky and Port bars will also have some ales this weekend too.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

The market in the Zurich HB is one again and we have all the usual suspects including a fabulous mature Wensleydale, Cornish Yarg and the new "Traditional" hand made Stilton.

And for the first time there we have freshly baked bagels

The market is on today until 8pm and our stall is in the same spot near the front doors in the ground floor concourse.... please bring your warmest smile to my charming assistant, as it is freezing in there today!

Sold out of yarg again but we hope to have it every month from now on....

Westcombe PDO "Slow Food" Cheddar is on offer today at the Zurich HB market, 4.90 / 100gr, down from 5.50. Come along after work for a warming beer... but bring a warm smile, we are freezing in the market today! (And our bagels, fresh from the freezer this morning... are still frozen!)

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Stinking Bishop is back in stock, the 6 I have are quite young so not tooo smelly . We have them at both the Zurich HB market today and the Viadukt as well as loads of Godminster hearts (Godminster Bio Cheddar is our best selling cheese) and they are also in our on-line shop. I've added an extra despatch date of Monday 13th Feb... for obvious reasons.



And this Saturday we are hosting another of our very popular "Port & Stilton" free tastings at the Viadukt from 12.00 - 19.00. Try about 6 different port wines with a similar number of blue cheeses including my new favourite cheese, Bluemin White from North Yorkshire, a soft creamy cheese with a gentle blue rind. It's bloomin' good!

GG, do you have some flyers that I could put up for your port & stilton tasting at my place of work? I'm sure there are many people there who would be very interested ...

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

We're back at the Zurich HB market tomorrow from 10.00 - 20.00 with all of our usual British cheeses and bagels. I've been away for a few weeks but I'll be back at the Viadukt market on Limmatstrasse for another of our popular Port and Stilton tasting days. We'll have about 6 British blues including 2 different Stiltons and Stichelton, the raw milk version to try with a few of our ports including our exclusive Skeffington Vintages. And the tasting is free from 14.00 - 19.00!

Plenty of non blues to try too with the port including our best selling Godminster Bio Cheddar. If port is not your thing we have plenty of bottled British ales too. And to finish off how about some of our handmade all butter Somerset fudge.

We've published an event on our Facebook page where you can sign up... you might even want to spread the word yourselves

See you Saturday!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

A new delivery has just arrived, and for lovers of Godminster Cheddar (the one in the burgundy wax) but who balk at the relatively high price, we have a slightly younger version unwaxed which is about 30% cheaper.

At the Zurich HB market today we also have Scones and Clotted Cream and next week we may be selling small kits, 2 scones and small pots of cream and strawberry jam to take back to your office. Price will be about 8.00 SFR.

At the Viadukt market we have some new cheeses including White Stilton and Waterloo, Wild Garlic Yarg and rachel goat are back. We also have a new range of chutneys, jellies and jams, my favourite being Chilli Chilli Bang Bang chutney. And from the same supplier we have a big range of fruit cakes and Self Raising Flour, only 4.30 for a 1.5 kg bag. No excuses to not make your own scones now!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

In a way it's lucky I don't live or work in Zurich as my waistline would never forgive me

p.s we've almost finished the mountain of cheese we bought a few weeks ago...

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

The Viadukt market is closed on Thursday this week so we'll be bringing extra cheeses to the Zurich HB Wednesday market (open from 10.00 - 20.00) including:

Goldilocks - from the Godminster farm, a soft Jersey milk cheese as well as the black pepper and garlic and herb varieties

Olde York - a fresh Yorkshire sheeps milk cheese

Rydale - like a younger and fresher Wensleydale

Bluemin White - my new favourite (from the same dairy in Thirsk as the above 2), a soft white cheese but with a gentle blue rind - so good Jelmoli have added it to their British selection

Wild Garlic Garg

as well as the usual Godminster Cheddar, Westcombe Cheddar, Cropwell Bishop Stilton, Shropshire Blue, Thomas Hoe Red Leicester etc.

And bagels...

I get them from time to time..... which reminds me. I'll be in Geneva on the 13th and 14th October for 2 events and will need something to do on the Saturday evening. Shall I bring some cheese to the pub again?

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Mmmmm cheese. I shall be bringing some Swiss colleagues along to the Cheese Centre sometime this week to delight in some churned goodness. And Pimms.

Is it true that the UK produce the most different types of cheese? I know the British Cheese board recognises circa 700.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Just out of curiosity, what's happened to the Zürich HB market. I took my mother along on Wednesday to have a look and it seemed as if quite a number of stalls were missing, including yours, Grumpy - at least I couldn't find it.

Is this just a blip or has the market scaled down a bit?

Try and bring them Thursday after work when I'll be there for sure for the English pub evening..... it's true we make over 700 (some have counted 900) different varieties and, depending on how these, and those from France and Switzerland, are counted, it can be argued that we make more different cheeses than both. I confidently claim it is true and I've yet to find a French or Swiss person brave enough to try to prove me wrong.

And today I had 2 new French customers who both agreed that my new personal favourite Bluemin White from North Yorkshire is a seriously excellent cheese.

Sorry Slaphead, I should have announced here that due to staff shortages, as well as exhaustion from Saturdays Jubilee party, we had to knock last Wednesday on the head. It's true that a few stall holders have left and the market does seem to be losing a bit of direction, less people come to do food shopping and more come for food to eat there. Maybe the Viadukt is taking over as the "Speciality Food Market" of Zurich, certainly they are much more adept at getting the marketing message across than those that run the HB.

Anyway, we're back next Wednesday and we will also be having more food ready to eat including our mini packs of Scones, jam and clotted cream. You should have brought your Mum to the Viadukt today, we were really busy and it was a great atmosphere.
