View Full Version : Zen and the art of cheese making

EU gas ban hits UK cheese-makers (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/6195719.stm)Traditional Cheddar cheese-makers say their future could be in doubt.
They are angry that European legislation now prohibits them from using methyl bromide to kill mites. So, exactly how traditional is methyl bromide anyway ? :suspect:

Never fear, they've come up with a Zen way to keep our cheese mite-free:
The cheese-makers say they will need extra staff to brush them away.

Woolyalan, You are right. I must have watched the film thirty times and I still get my popular front and peoples front mixed up.

"Siblings they've bled us white. And what have the Romans ever done for us?"

The graffiti scene takes me straight back to school, I'm sure Cleese modelled that bit on my old latin master!

A nice, thick slice of mature English Cheddar - and it must be English mind! - placed sandwich style between two slices of Xmas cake, and taken with a glass of fine Port, rounds things off nicely.

Blacksheep, speaking my language now - just started on the christmas port and cheddar (bestest maturist local cheddar) this week :}
Damn, salivating on my desk just thinking about it
