How many British cheeses can you find that are named after former Roman towns?
Can't think of towns but don't forget
English Vintage Reserve
West Country Mature
Wensleydale ( with every type of addition eg fudge, whiskey, truffles, orange, cranberry, stickey toffee, christmas pud - that's not cheese it's dessert)
with Shallots/balsamic onion/chives
Apparently the red is because northern Britain prefer it. Plus we are the only nation that mucks around by adding flavours (unless I was misinformed)
Worcester - the 'cester' gives it away
Shouldn't that be Gloucester Gloucester 😄
What set me off on this quest was seeing an outline of Lindinis=Ilchester* and the plan looked a bit like a cheese with the corner cut off. All the rest followed...
* E.g. Applewood. This has not being going since Roman times I realize but it makes it into French Wikipedia, "L'Applewood", so it has a claim to celebrity.
