Ah, but proper cheddar is something else entirely:Cheddar cheese (I know it's a completely overprocessed sterile food and Emmental is much more natural but Cheddar still meets my taste better. I'm actually a Gouda freak).
https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/food-and-drink/features/the-great-cheddar-swindle-how-to-spot-a-quality-cheese-from-a-mass-produced-one-8217247.htmlChristopher Millns, director of the Weald Smokery, on the Kent-East Sussex border and a judge at November's World Cheese Awards, sells a blinding Isle of Mull cheddar and reckons we need to be much more careful about what we call cheddar.
"There are so many mass-produced cheddars made in factories and there is a vast difference between these and proper farmhouse cheddar," he says. "A traditional cheddar is pressed under muslin and needs to crumble if matured properly. If made from unpasteurised milk, it will have a fuller flavour. The problem today is any bog-standard block cheese is automatically labelled cheddar, made with milk which comes from all over the place. Have supplements been added to enhance milk production, or are the cattle fed a poor diet? With traditional farmhouse producers, chances are the milk will come from their own dairy herds, which have grazed on their own pastures, resulting in a seasonal change in flavours according to what they're eating. All this really matters.
"Why can't we be more protective of our traditional cheddars? Get rid of the supermarket image and call all the mediocre stuff 'cheddar-style'?"
It depends on the occasion, but, here in Finland, glögi is a popular Christmas drink, so I'll go with that.Mulled wine (Glühwein, Glögg, ...) or Champagne?
Good catch there! Should have stuck with my more obscure Hitchcock question about the better “Mother” role for character actress Jessie Royce Landis...Grace Kelly’s in “To Catch A Thief” or Cary Grant’s in “NXNW”.The 1944 version of Gaslight was directed by George Cukor, not Hitchcock, but I'll choose Angela Lansbury, anyway.
