Pong's Opinion

Now world famous since it replaced Wensleydale as the favourite cheese of a certain animated superstar, Stinking Bishop deserves its fame on its characteristics alone. The 'Bishop' is now indeed a superstar cheese and the equivalent, in the cheese world, to a Latour.

Stinking Bishop comes with a Pong warning - the 'Bishop' is extremely Pongy! If you havent had it, you must try it at least once.

What's it taste like? Contrary to popular belief there is no pear such as the 'Stinking Bishop'. The variety used in the perry (pear-based cider) in which this famous cheese is washed is actually called 'Moorcroft'. The truth is is that the perry itself is eponymous with a malodourous and drunken member of a local family from yesteryear called Bishop who is said to have created the cider. This is a phemenonal cheese with a superb name and one of our favourites. It has a soft texture and a strong taste, which isnt quite as pungent as the name would suggest but extremely tasty. Similar to an Epoisses but not quite as strong and a bit sturdier.

Where's it from? Made by Charles Martell in Dymock, Gloucestershire. A 500g whole circular cheese in a wooden case.
