With no offence intended to forum users from other countries - cheeses from other European countries are very well represented already in the UK - the cheese section in most supermarkets having far more foreign cheeses than British, which normally just include about 12 different types of Cheddar from all over the UK (although I'm guessing that will change soon, with the advent of its gaining of PDO status), a Stilton or two, some sweaty looking Red Leicester and a few of those bizarrely flavoured cheeses with lumps of cranberry or chilli or whatever in them. Nothing wrong with a good Cheddar or course, nor Stilton (although I've never seen the point in Red Leicester, and those flavoured cheeses are an abomination), but there are so many great British cheeses that never seem to make the shelves - there are at least as many as, if not more, British cheeses than French, so why don't we know of more? Off the top of my head - the tangy and crumbly Caerphilly; the nutty, buttery Mrs Appleby's Cheshire; the creamy, full flavoured Barkham Blue and the pungent, oozing Stinking Bishop. All wonderful, all underrepresented in most people's diets. So - what cheeses do you love that slip under most people's radars? Do you have a favourite local cheese that needs celebrating? I'll start with the Tunworth Soft Cheese from locally to me (and I suspect, Henriette) in Hampshire. Soft, creamy and rich - it's wonderful and easily as good as any foreign equivalent. http://www.hampshirecheeses.co.uk/ Anyone else?
