British Cheese Week

Today is the last day of British cheese week.  Nearly 700 cheeses are produced in Britain, so there’s definitely going to be one out there to suit every taste.  Townfood celebrated the end of the week with three favourites.

Waterloo – a semi-soft, brie-like cheese that is made in Berkshire and has a deliciously creamy and rich taste.

Lancashire – a hard, cows’ milk cheese that has a crumbly texture and a strong, fresh flavour. This is a great alternative to cheddar to make your cheeseboard a bit more original.

Cashel blue – so this is actually from Ireland, but it’s just so good it can’t be missed. It is a medium-strength blue cheese with a very creamy texture. The large blue flecks are made by the same process that is used for Roquefort and Stilon.

Quince is also a must, so we bought a little packet to go with our cheeses.

We got our cheese from Union Market in Fulham Broadway. They have a wide selection that is sourced by the Neal’s Yard Dairy and great knowledge of their product. They also put the cheese ahead of their own health by splashing around in a pool of water behind the counter. There is a tap constantly running, sending a little river of water onto the floor. Apparently a damp atmosphere is good for cheese.
