Stinking Bishop

for 250g

Washed in Perry for a very funky cheese

Delivery/Collection info

    Charles Martell began making Stinking Bishop cheese from the milk of his herd of Gloucestershire cattle, to increase awareness of the breed, which had previously been near to extinction.  Made famous by the Wallace and Gromit films, the pungent smell of the cheese is in the rind, which is washed in perry made from the Stinking Bishop variety of pear.  The bacteria in the perry cause the stink, but the flavour of the cheese is surprisingly more delicate (particularly if you hold your nose!).  The milk is pasteurised and vegetarian rennet is used.

    The pear was named after an infamous Ledbury farmer, Frederick Bishop, nicknamed Stinking Bishop, who was born in the mid-19th century and known for his drunken temper.  Made in Dymock, Gloucester, just over the Herefordshire borders, we include this in our local cheese selection.
