The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

About 9 months ago the Cheese Club stopped stocking any cheese that wasn't British, so we have decided to change the name to the British Cheese Centre of Switzerland.

If you don't already know us, we import only the very best British farmhouse cheeses. At any time we have between 20 and 40 different cheeses in stock (that's more than most cheese shops in the UK) as well as lots of gourmet crackers, oatcakes, chutney's and jellies.

As well as selling from our stall at the Zürich HB Wednesday market, we send cheese parcels out by post every Thursday to arrive with you on Friday morning (we use Priority Post and haven't had any problems so far). Delivery charge is CHF 9.50 and free for orders over CHF 120.00 - many customers group orders with colleagues at work to get free delivery. We also have our 9 best sellers always in stock at the Jelmoli Gourmet Factory in Zurich. More outlets around Switzerland will be coming soon.

We also arrange and take part in events all over Switzerland. These consist of cheese suppers and Ploughmans lunches at Spiffing Ales and the Rappi Bier Factory and some free cheese tasting events at places such as Orrel Füssli English book shop in Zurich (next one there this Saturday July 4th from 11.00 - 17.00) and the Moevenpick Wine shops. The tastings are free and we always serve the cheese with wine or ale (again free). You can of course buy cheese to take home on these days, but it is not expected! Other events already booked are the Highland Games at Fehraltorf & Fribourg, Expat-Expo in Zurich, Geneva & Luzern and the Christmas markets in Luzern and Rapperswil.

Some other things we do that you may not know:

• Catering for parties & Apéros at your home, company or other venues - anything from 8 - 250 we have handled so far

• Educational and fun workshops pairing our cheese with Swiss wine, British Ale, Single Malt whiskey etc

• "Cheesy Wheels" - we bring our mobile cheese counter to your company, club or school, again, free tastings and sales.

• For English teachers and language schools, we can work with you to prepare a lesson based around a British cheese tasting. These are very popular with the students and they get to learn new vocabulary and something about British food and culture. We have done most of these as the last lesson in a term.

• Wholesale to shops, restaurants and hotels.

Finally, if you want to keep fully up-dated on what we are doing and where (I don't post all our events on EF), either send me an e-mail to register for our regular Newsletter and "New Cheese Alerts" or become a fan on our new Facebook page - you don't have to become a "friend" so all your private details stays private.

Thanks to all of our regular customers on English Forum, and hope to meet you soon!

Good luck with your relaunched venture. It is good to see someone apparently doing well in these difficult times.

Thanks everyone. We're still in the early days and it is pretty tough, but everyone says we're doing the right thing. We just need to be able to survive the next 11 months when our new exciting retail outlet opens in Zurich.... more later!

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

Yup. The stilton and the grainy textured cheddar were brutishly delicious.

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.

Man, thats nice cheese!

I bought some on Wednesday, at the market in Zurich train station.

after years of emmentaler, fondues and budget, I'd forgotten what "real cheese" tastes like!

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

Tomorrow (Saturday 31st October) we'll be at Orell Füssli English bookshop to help celebrate their 10th birthday. Come by for a drink and a cheesy nibble or 2. I did read somewhere that there will also be live music but I can't find the link so not sure when that might be!

EDIT - live music from 2 pm and a free bar and sandwiches - I think I'll post an event

My stock of cheese is almost depleted. I foresee I will feel the urge to buy an expensive English book tomorrow.

Re: The British Cheese Centre of Switzerland

A quick thanks to you Mike for the excellent cheeses I bought yesterday. When I bought the cheddar I was thinking cheese on toast, but that Black Bomber is way way too good for that, so I ended up scoffing it with some nice crusty bread instead. I think you can count me as a repeat customer from now on
