Stinking Bishop- Washed Rind, Cow’s Milk, Pasteurised and Vegetarian ( For you Julia Attwood x)

A lovely mild, supple, rich & sweet washed rind cheese

A lovely mild, supple, rich & sweet washed rind cheese

Well my first cheese feature was of Epoisses washed rind cheese but as lovely as it may be it isn’t suitable for Vegetarians. I had a request to find a cheese similar to this, which is just as gooey and suitable for vegetarians. So here we are! Stinking Bishop! And boy does it stink 😉 The pungent yet hunger inducing smell comes from the cheese which is washed in Perry Pear Cider, and the name Stinking Bishop comes from the pear that makes the cider, then used to wash the cheese. Created in 1972 by Charles Martell it has become one of most well-known cheeses in the UK.

This cheese takes between 5-8 weeks to mature and develops a rich, sweet & mild paste which is lovely & supple. This cheese can be enjoyed with pears or a robust red wine. A Pinot Noir matches very well with Stinking Bishop.

I hope this fits the bill Julia and its available online from http://www.melburyandappleton.co.uk/stinking-bishop-322-p.asp

Please go and try this cheese as its a wonderfully produced artisan cheese from the UK.

Until next time my cheese lovers!
