We were having our end of day glass of wine with some amazing cheese, wondering what to write for this week’s blog post… why not talk about cheese? We do love a bit of cheese in this house!

Pextenement cheese made in TodmordenTodmorden now has its own cheese-maker called Pextenement Cheese Co. They produce a lovely cheese called East Lee Soft – it’s absolutely perfect with crackers or oatcakes. We’re looking forward to trying the cheddar and Camembert-style cheeses they’re currently developing.

inside The Cheese Place, HaworthWe’re quite well served with cheese retailers in our area. Special mention must go to The Cheese Place in Haworth. It’s about half an hour’s drive away, but well worth the trip. Friendly, knowledgeable owners – and great cheese.

So if we’re ever undecided as to which direction to head out… we think of those wise words from Wallace –  “Gromit, that’s it… cheese… we’ll go somewhere where there’s cheese!”
