Winchester has an excellent cheese stall on their Wednesday street food market. Even worth a trip to Winchester.
I was pleased to find there is now an excellent cheese stall on the Friday market in North Street in Guildford. The man very knowledgeable on his cheeses. I tasted a few and they were excellent.
I bought Lincolnshire Poacher.
To my surprise, the Lincolnshire Poacher was a blue cheese, at least had a blue vein running through it.
The cheese guy said this was quite common. Cheddar cheeses often have a blue vein and are written off as wastage, though can be found on sale locally. For me, he knocked the price down for being defective.
I was baffled by this .
Instead of writing off as waste, why not sell at a premium as Blue Lincolnshire Poacher, in the same way have Blue Stilton?
He had a Blue Stilton, Colston Blue, far superior to average Stilton which has an unpleasant metallic bitter taste.
Located at the top of the market, next to or nearby an excellent fruit and vegetable stall.
Cheese stall and fruit and vegetable stall, two good reasons to visit Guildford on a Friday.
Tea later, sandwich of wholemeal bread, Lincolnshire Poacher cheese with tomato, followed by the unusual flapjack which I had only nibbled with my coffee at Turn Fit Deli.
