2012 British Cheese Awards: the winner
This is the best cheese on sale in Britain right now. It's called the Real Yorkshire Wensleydale Blue and it was declared Supreme Champion at an award ceremony for British cheese last night in Cardiff. It has an unusual but attractive, dry grey "snake skin" crust, wrapped in a bandage pierced with small holes. A densely compact slightly dry texture that soon becomes almost velvety in the mouth, with well-spread threads of silvery blue that melt in the mouth releasing their spicy but surprisingly mild blue tang that hints of cocoa. Mmmm
There is no french cheese that compares to British cheese.
Even the French Brie is nothing to a Somerset Brie .
Best British cheeses Somerset Brie, Shropshire Blue, Garstang Blue ,White Cheshire, Creamy Lancashire.
stuff the stilton,, get a good strong cheese like granny singletons ,, strong lancs or serously strong cheddar makes a great accompliment to any cheese biscuit.....
The Mull of Kintyre is a peninsula not too far from Glasgow, the Isle of Mull is an island near Oban... I believe you're mixing the two up...
The song is about the peninsula!
Exmoor Blue the finest jersey blue cheese around and their Partridge Blue, their Somerset Blue and their Buffalo Blue. Old fashioned blues, that have been made for years, not like these new boys on the market!
with good cheese forget biscuits just add wine and grapes and apple slices, mmmm...
