Vacherin Mont Door | Cheese

This cheese is so perfect – it is the kind of cheese that can bring tears to your eyes. The exquisite soft centre is unlike anything else out there on the market today.

Their is only one way to eat Mont d’Or – and that is heated in the oven until the cheese becomes runny (usually no more than 15 minutes). This of course makes a superb starter and talking point. Here’s a great recipe!

This is the French and unpasteurised version of Vacherin Mont d’Or which is made just over the border in Switzerland. It is indescribably creamy and gorgeous with the unmistakable aroma of alpine milk.
Where’s it from?

This AOC Mont D’Or is affineured and distributed by Charles Hennart. Mont d’Or comes in an attractive wooden box.

Stinking Bishop

 

 

This cheese is now world famous since it overtook Wensleydale as the cheese of choice in the Oscar winning “The Curse of the Were-Rabbit” (with Wallace and Gromit) – it was used to bring Wallace back from the dead.

Demand for the cheese subsequently rose by 500%. Stinking Bishop deserves to be famous for purely its own characteristics, the ‘Bishop’ is extremely Pongy! If you havent tried it yet then you must try it once!

What’s it taste like?

This is a wonderful cheese with a catchy name and one of our favourites. It has a soft texture and a strong taste, which isnt quite as pungent as the name would suggest but extremely tasty.

Here is a short video which gives you much more information on The Stinking Bishop.

Banon | Soft French Cheese

This is a French farmhouse cheese, Banon comes uncooked and un pressed with a soft, fine, pale yellow centre. This is imported from Provence and made by the expert Jacques Hennart.

After an affinage of about two weeks the cheese is dipped in eau-de-vie, wrapped in chestnut leaves and tied with raffia. The leaves keep the young, slightly acidic cheese moist and impart a fresh vegetable flavour with a hint of wine.

This is a delightful cheese with a soft creamy texture, a slight tang, and a mild aroma of chestnut leaves.

Banon is quite mild in taste, soft and smooth. The cheese takes on the aroma and the colour from the chestnut leaf and gives the taste earthy tones.
