On BBC Two at 8.30pm on Mondays is “Mary Berry Cooks” and this week the culinary conjurer prepared a cheese board consisting of Wookey Hole, Cornish Yarg and Tunworth (To Be Featured Soon) as these three cheeses cover all the bases and Mary wanted to champion British cheeses so who could blame her when Britain produces over 700 now! I would have loved to have starred in the program as I too share her passion in our cheeses. If you wish to watch the program here is the link http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03y6wj6/Mary_Berry_Cooks_A_Dinner_Party/ there is only a short time left to watch so get it in while you can!
The biggest talking point though was that Mary serves her cheeses before dessert, which is a very French & Continental way of serving cheese. Now I personally will change depending on how much Wine is left and who I have as guests as to whether I serve it before or after dessert, and that seems to be the case with the majority of my customers. I think overall as long as you enjoy the cheese you have bought it makes no difference if its served before or after dessert.
But how do you personally serve your cheese? I have decided to make this post interactive and I would love to gauge your reaction with this poll. Please vote and if you have any comments please drop them in the box below.
