We’ve been kicking around London since Wednesday. One of my main pilgrimages when I’m in town is to visit Neal’s Yard Dairy in my old neighborhood of Covent Garden. After a wide range of nibbles, we headed home with some Sleightlett, an unbearably soft tasting unpasteurized goats milk cheese and Westcombe, a slightly strong and peppery English cheddar, both made in Somerset. To those we added two Irish cheeses, a Crozier, a creamy bleu made from sheep’s milk made in Tipperary, and Ardrahan, a pungent smelling yet delicate tasting washed rind cow’s milk cheese from County Cork, Ireland. Not enough people think of cheese as a souvenir. I’m seriously contemplating how I can get a whole load of it into my suitcase.
