Neal's Yard Dairy (page 2 of 2) Home
My visit to the cult London cheese shop, selling no less than 57 types of British cheeses.
The 5 delicious British cheeses I bought at Neal's Yard, clockwise from top left: Appleby's Cheshire,
Colston Bassett Stilton, Beenleigh Blue, Keen's Cheddar,
Cheshire is the oldest recorded British cheese. Here is a slice of Keen's Cheddar from the unpasteurised milk of the Keen'sfamily's farm near Montgomery's, bound in larded cloth like Cheddar ...
... and with fine veins where the cheese mites have led the way to some taste-generating microbes.
Stichelton, a joint venture between the unpasteurised cow's milk of Collingthwhaite Farm in Nottinghamshire, and the timeless charm of Penicillium Roquefortii, one of the finest French exports.
Beenleigh Blue, made in Devon from pasteurised sheeps' milk, has such an intense taste of milk, I just had to buy it. More on this later.
I ate the Stichelton and Colston Bassett Stilton over a rather good dried fig fresh bread, drinking a glass of Sauterne to the good health of British cheesemakers. He who said there were no artisans left in Britain obviously has never visited Neal's Yard.
