Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

We're closed again tomorrow for Ascension so we'll stay open till 8pm again tonight. Appleby's raw milk Cheshire and raw milk Stichelton have just arrived and we have loads of beer in stock.

We also have loads of beers and one beer tap running, you can't drink at the bar but we are pouring beer to go in plastic beakers, or bring your own flasks and bottles and we'll fill them. On tap right now is Hobgoblin IPA. Cheers!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

The Viadukt Market is now fully open again to the usual hours of 09.00 - 20.00 Mon - Sat. And my cheese shop is (almost) fully stocked again and we're serving cheese plates, as well as beer and English Bubbly, from our little bar and from next week we should be serving Bagels again.

New cheeses just arrived include: Smoked Lincolnshire Poacher, Hawes Wensleydale, Fowlers Sage Derby, Cornish Kern and Yarg, Ribblesdale Goat and Oxford Blue.

Thanks for supporting us over the last three months, it's been a very tough time.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

I'm still not going to the office. As soon as I return from my summer break, I will start going to the office again, so I'll pop in for a refill. In the meantime, I think I'll just order ordered online. I can't live without some decent blue cheese.

Thanks Caleb. It'll be in the post tomorrow, the Oxford Blue is superb at the moment!

I love Oxford Blue. Would you eat the Oxford Blue's rind though? It usually looks GROSS.

Absolutely yes. With 90% of cheeses, the rind is edible and is often the best part of the cheese - it's a concentration of the paste, the inner bit, of the cheese. My usual advice is to try it. If your teeth can get through it and you like the taste, then eat it!

I eat most cheese rinds but I find the rind of Stilton to be too dry and bitter, but most rinds can be used in cooking, to add flavour to soups and sauces.

Ahh, that cheese on the picture looks like my kind of thing. A few more days - I love when the cheese comes to meet me half way.

Very good tip re rind. Thanks. To you and Tom

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

One more thing: <<(but beware, some cheaper industrial versions do use a parafin wax on the very outside of the rind which will ruin your soups flavour)>>
How would I know that's what they used? (The term "cheaper" is a bit unreliable? )

I try all natural rinds, but my question was very specific to Oxford Blue, the rind of which is particularly sticky and gooey, from the wrapping and label that's slapped on it from early on.

I'm guessing the Oxford Blue you had last time was the baby 300gr cheeses, on small cheeses you get more rind in proportion to the paste and as it gets older it can become quite overpowering. Right now I have the larger cheeses and the rind is thinner and more gentle.

This is the baby cheese



And the larger one we have now

Hmmm, you might be right. If I remember correctly, last time I had Oxford Blue it must have been a piece off a 20cm in diameter wheel, which might be a bit too big for 300g. Dunno. Let's see...your package should arrive tomorrow.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

An update for Christmas cheese deliveries.

We've had a lot of disruption with supply the last few months, and it's only a bit better right now. But we do have some great Neals Yard cheeses just arrived, including Stichelton (raw milk Stilton), Cheshire, Caerphilly, Montgomery, Isle of Mull and Lincolnshire Poacher Cheddars.

We also have plenty of Stilton and another big delivery of other cheeses arriving the end of next week.

Plenty of Port, English Bubbly and Mince Pies in too (but Christmas Puddings old out last night, we may get more next wee) and seriously good sausages and back bacon in the freezer.

We're open 6 days a week in Zürich from 11.00 - 18.00 and we're also open this Sunday again from 11.00 - 18.00. We're open until 17.00 on Christmas eve.

Last orders in the web shop for posting throughout CH is Friday 18th, parcels will be sent by A Post on Monday 20th. We could probably send a few more parcels on the 21st and 22nd but by Express Mond post only.

Thanks and have a great Christmas!

WebShop

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

I gotta drive to the office in the coming days (haven't been there since March), so I'll very likely pop in and pick something blue for the last weeks of the year.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Hi I just made an order. (1906) One of the things from the Afternoon Tea submenu is scones and clotted cream catering pack. From the description I'm guessing this is 10 Scones, without the clotted cream, so I ordered a bottle of clotted cream as well.

I paid by bank transfer (value today) to save you the credit card fees.

I'm not putting them on the webshop, first they sometimes sell so fast in the Markthalle we don't have enough time to update levels on the webshop. Secondly, we send them by post frozen, but at this time of year A Post for parcels can take 2 or sometimes 3 days. That's fine for cheese, but not for sausages.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Sorry to bother you GGF, I do understand that you are very busy.

Since the initial confirmation I haven’t heard anything about my order 1906. I made payment by transfer the same day (3 Dec) thinking that would save you the credit card fees.

Any update would be appreciated.
