An earlier post of mine made reference to “plates of cheese cut into huge chunks that looked more like bits of rubble from a dump.” From The Map of Time by Felix J Palma
I hope these look more appetizing than rubble. The upper left is an English Stilton, the upper right is a Huntsman – actually a Double Gloucester with stripes of the same Stilton through it. The bottom cheese is a Cotswold (which I’ve just learned from Wikipedia is also a Double Gloucester that has chives and scallions mixed through it. I’m very curious to see the cheese wheel rolling contest and to know why it’s also a wake…
For those folks, you know who you are, who turn up your noses at cheddar and cheddar-friends, I might remind you that these are English cheeses meant to be found in a dive bar in Whitehall, London in the 1900’s, and not in one of your snootier salons, thank you very much!
I liked them all, in particular the Cotswold.
