Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

The HB Market management has finally seen sense and realised that our cheeses actually bring visitors to the Market so they are allowing us to bring what we like. We will be limiting our selection to 5 or 6 cheeses each week but as usual we still accept email orders for collection.

Cheeses this Wednesday will be Lincolnshire Poacher 2 year old raw milk cheddar, Godminster Bio waxed cheddar, Cropwell Bishop blue and White Stilton, gorwydd Caerphilly and mature Wensleydale. There's also a little Quicke's west country cheddar left too.

And for Mr Graben, today I spoke to Mr Humphreys and we are planning a big invasion of volutuous Rachel in 3 weeks. I will also bring over 2 or 3 of his other creations.

Finally, 10 of our most popular cheeses (including Rachel) should be in Jelmoli In Zurich from first week of October. You heard it here first!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

I am already making room in my fridge and allowing for a significant increase of my cheese budget in October.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Just had a wonderful lunch!!
A slice of the Godminster cheddar and a small crusty dry loaf from Zurich HB market.Sat on a park bench and read the paper while happily munching away in beautiful weather.
Wonderful full flavoured soft moist cheddar cheese. Real cheese actually not that c**p you get in supermarkets both here and in the UK.
The bonus was I met Mike (aka GG).
Give it a go folks it was lovely.

Thanks Mike - all the best for your cheesiness!!

I'll be at the Expat-Expo at the Zürich Kongreshaus today from 11.00 - 17.00 with about 8 cheeses and plenty of chutney's, oatcakes and crackers. I may also bring along the last of my strong pickled onions.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Passed by the stall at HB today and bought some excellent Cheddar from you GrumpyGrapefruit. But I don't remember what it was called! I bought the younger Cheddar that's bursting with citrus flavours with the black rind.

I really liked the Stilton too and will probably buy it next time.

You have a great stall and I really enjoyed listening to you. You're passionate about your products and it's clear to see.

Good Luck

Glad you're enjoying it! You got the Godminster BIO cheddar, actually in burgundy wax. The Black Bomber will be here next week.

Pretty sure I'm the only Brit with a stall there, and certain there's no other Brutish cheese stall. Say hello next time and ask for the Shropshire Blue. If the Stilton was nice you will love the Shropshire.

Sorry for those of you came late yesterday, I rather misjudged demand and sold out of all 3 cheddars before 7. Must do better next time

I'm going to leave that iPhone typo in, as at least one of my cheddars is rather brutish

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Would anyone happen to have any nice recipes with stilton?

I've had roquefort sauce on steak, or a bleu cheese salad dressing. I love it. I'm thinking the same can be done with stilton.

Any interesting ideas on what to make with stilton?

Stilton & Broccoli soup - you can also serve it chilled. I do also have a recipe for Stiton ice cream, I'll dig it out and post it after the weekend

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

I make stilton burgers. You make the burgers as usual but put a lump of stilton in the middle and wrap the meat around it then fry or grill as normal. They are really tasty.
