Cos a lot of people only buy port at Xmas and couple the 2 together. I used to like the blue stinky stuff, less so now.

I tend to  stick to a mature cheddar. Also Xmas also throws up (no pun intended) mixing cheeses with all sorts of strange bedfellows.

I get some strange looks from the family when I tuck into a slab of stinking blue. Can't get enough of the stuff.

Do you have to get imported European cheese, or are there local varieties?  Somehow I don't really associate Oriental cuisine with cheese.

Some stuff is made out here, mainly cheddar. Quite sure a lot is imported though.

So you can just nip to the supermarket and buy a block of Stilton or Shropshire Blue ?

The larger supermarkets, yeah. Smaller ones tend to have just cheddar or processed stuff, if anything. There's some supermarkets out here that specialise in imported goodies for westerners, they can be pricey though. Nearly a tenner for a small jat of Bovril, for example.

Would it not pay for a little box of goodies to be sent over from here? like 5 jars packaged up?

Its about 3 for a 250ml jar here at the mo.

Can't be that much for postage.

Sounds like too much faff for my liking. I'm not a fan of faff.

Actually I just checked, not sure if its classed as "vegetable product" which is prohibited but otherwise its ok.

Isn't global capitalism marvellous, you can get a jar of Bovril in Bangkok. Personally, I always check as far as possible where something is sourced, as I think as far as possible foodstuffs should be sourced reasonably locally, for UK, I'd count the EU in this....but will always reject stuff sourced from the US, far east etc.

Its also got a microbrewery, perhaps the cheer and beer production are something the Trust can campaign for within the alterations to the bank?

I got a leaflet from my doctor the other day that basically told me to add cheese to all my food. I started wondering if there were any cheese restaurants, and I thought what better place to ask than the TEF?

I know about Madame Fromage..

It would make very good business sense for the club to brew it's own beer.

They would make all the profit instead of some of it, and it would fall into the lower microbrewery duty rate.

It's one of them win-win things
