Product of the Month: Bath Blue cheese


The Champion Cheese at the 2014 World Cheese Awards, this organic, pasteurised cows milk cheese from The Bath Soft Cheese Company in the West County is a ‘strong cheese, great with a pint and some good bread’ says our resident cheese expert, Peter Bone. 

It is ripened in their traditional stone built rooms for eight to ten weeks to give a creamy blue veined taste.
