Regarding "Cooking with Rinds", parmesan rinds become soft in the minestrone and are easily edible, though it takes more than a few minutes for them to soften properly. Delicious!

I've never tried that, just dropped them in for a few minutes to add some flavour, but next time I'll try your suggestion, thanks!
I've putting Parmesan rinds into beef casseroles for donkeys years, they add a certain 'depth' to the sauce.
Just bung the rinds in the freezer and keep until needed.

Lost in the meanders of the forum these days..

Are there still any of those lovely cheese events in our territory?

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Recently moved to the Zurich area from US, I'm looking for a mild cheddar cheese (for casserole dishes) I've tried Cathedral City, it's, its too strong for these dishes, any suggestions?

The Coop sells an own brand cheddar which is milder than Catherdral City... might be worth a try?

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Is the Coop brand called cheddar or is it called something else?

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

It's called cheddar, in a transparent wrapping, label has a picture of a cow on if memory serves. Should be with the Gruyere, etc.

I'm intrigued by these cheese casserole type dishes. What do you put in them?

I'm afraid if Cathedral City is too strong for you, my cheddars are not what you're looking for. I'm not familiar with the Coop one but try it, if not, depending on what exactly you're cooking, try Emmentaller.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

The Coop cheddar is so mid it's almost tasteless. But if Catherdral City is too strong then it would be the next best thing.
If Amyy want's to put it into fondue it probably won't be that nice, but might work in a fish pie or grated into mashed potatoes. Definitely not a patch on GG's cheeses, but okay for everyday cooking.

Try the Pizza/Gratin mixes. They're already grated. and they're pretty mild (certainly the low budget house brands are).

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

As they're now on the Swiss budget cheese ..... I grab my chance re off topic (okay, very off-topic):
Grumpygrapefruit, if you're not interested in taking crumpets into your assortment (which I fully understand) do you ever fly to England? Having to do some negotiating and stuff? Or is Amsterdam the only goal abroad you target these days? We could do a little black-market deal: 4 packs of crumpets - I pay double the purchase price
I'm getting a little desperate here, I lost a bet (originally hoped to dump the crumpet problem on the other party - now my problem has doubled )

I was in Arnhem at the weekend and there is a British food shop there that sells frozen Warbuton crumpets. I went there yesterday morning on my way to catch my train to Schiphol to buy some for you and I learned something that I didn't know.

The shop doesn't open until noon on Mondays and my train was 11.30. Sorry.

Awwww, thank you SO much for the effort!!! How nice of you to try!

As you seem to go there often, will you try again, buying them on Saturday maybe?

El Maiz, the mexican store in Zurich on Josefstrasse near the HB has a very mild, shredded cheddar. Also Globus sells a yellow cheddar that's very mild, as does Migros. I've not found the coop one to be any good. I know exactly what you want... a mild cheddar that melts without getting oily.

As for crumpets, I've got a recipe....haven't tried it, but the english muffin recipe from the same source was quite good. i'll have to try the crumpets and report back.
