Could someone get clotted cream to Zug?

I know that grumpy sells clotted cream, but I do not have time to go to Zurich for the next days. But I would need clotted cream for scones, a larger quantity. Would somebody be willing to get it for me and bring it back to Zug? Monday or Tuesday? Maybe someone who works in Zurich and commutes from Zug? Would be highly appreciated.

Re: Could someone get clotted cream to Zug?

Hello! Sorry I can't get any clotted cream to you from where I am but I have a suggestion - why don't you use mascarpone- it's practically the same and the right consistency for spreading. I always use it when I make and serve scones and it always goes down well ! Just don't mention the word "cheese*. Good luck! Glenda.

Is there a Jelmoli store there? They sell it in their grocery store in the basement/bottom level.

You mean in Zug? I don't think so.

What time do you need it by tomorrow and do you know where to get it in Zurich (idiots instructions required)?

I have to go to the apple store in Zurich and tomorrow later afternoon is as good a time as any.

Re: Could someone get clotted cream to Zug?

You could get it at Grumpy's cheese store at the viaduct market
Anreise ab Zürich Hauptbahnhof
Tram Linie 4 (>Werdhölzli) oder Linie 13 (>Frankental) bis Station Dammweg (Fahrzeit ca. 5 Min)
S-Bahn S3, S5, S6, S7, S9, S11, S12, S15, S16 bis Bahnhof Hardbrücke (Fahrzeit ca. 2 Min)
or here: Jelmoli Gourmet Factory on Zurichs Bahnhofstrasse

The time does not matter since I will be needing it Wednesday. I would need enough for 20 people......

Re: Could someone get clotted cream to Zug?

I've only just seen this, we could have posted it yesterday for you. The cream in jelmoli is mine too but it's a lot more expensive there so best head to the viadukt. We're open until 8pm.

Re: Could someone get clotted cream to Zug?

I use La Gruyère Double Cream from Migros with scones. You can whip it a bit to get a thicker texture but it is thick enough out of the tub to spread on scones.

I tried it once and was not happy at all. Way too runny. I found a nice lady who went to Zurich and got me the clotted cream at Mike's (thanks for the chunk of cheddar ).

Would said lady please get in touch with me again so I can thank her properly, I deleted the pms accidentally
