After spending a few days in the capitol of France I realised how different place cheese takes in the life of British and French people. In France good, quality cheese seems to be a natural part of everyone's diet, widely available not only from dedicated cheese stores but also from many popular streets markets. I believe it must be caused by tradition and not by the availability or big supply.
In Britain we can find really delicious cheeses which can be confirmed by many awards. Once again I'm using this to support my passion about the products from The British Isles. This is the time to mention the International Cheese Awards where Cave Aged West Country Cheddar won Supreme Champion 2011 title. It is a cloth wrapped cheese that is matured in a very humid and dark cave for up to six months. This gives lovely, earthy aroma and hard crumbly texture. It is really a good cheese which can be eaten not only from restaurant' cheese board but also enjoyed at any time at home with a glass of ale sitting in front of the fire.
