Big cheese

22 SEPTEMBER 2011 National cheese week (24th September - 2nd October) kicks of next week – and who doesn’t love the stuff? Strong, mild, smooth, creamy, blue, washed rind – there’s a cheese to suit all moods.

Our food blogger won’t keep quiet about the stuff post a visit to Bergerac and Corsica, where local cheeses are plentiful and perfect with just a good French baguette. He argues that butter, too, is a must – while others in the office think just cheese and bread is enough.

England has a rich cheese heritage – good old Blighty has enough cheeses to match any French cheese board. Cheddar – arguably one of the world’s finest cheeses. We lay claim to stilton, Wensleydale, Red Leicester, Lancashire and of course, double Gloucester – to name but a few of the 700 British cheeses.

To celebrate National Cheese Week we’ve gathered together some fantastic cheese recipes – click the links below to check them out.
