UK Cheese attitudes ‘transformed’ in 10 years

This is very nice to hear!

Attitudes to cheese in the UK have been transformed in the past 10 years, with the ‘traditional’ cheese industry now in the best shape since the Second World War.

Billy Kevan, chairman of the Stilton Cheese Makers’ Association and general manager at Colston Basset Dairy in Nottinghamshire, said there had been a sea change in attitudes to quality and tradition. Sea-change-in-attitudes-to-cheese-says-Stilton-boss_dnm_headline

“If we went back 10 years, 60-70% of cheese in the UK was high volume and highly processed not very good cheese. Now it is the opposite with 60-70% of it high quality, handmade, artisan cheese that is really very good,” he said.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
