Probably ok for domestic consumption but may struggle getting one into France ATM.
I do like a pork pie and was grateful when my son brought some over last year.
In the meantime a Pâté en Croûte is very nice indeed along with French Cheddar :)

Can it be called Cheddar, if it's not from, er, Cheddar? (bit like the Champagne argument).

It's true. It can't

But then it wasn't. It was named because it was popularised in the hotel I believe

The hotel in Stilton was a coaching Inn on the A1 and where the cheese was put on coaches to be distributed around the country - hence the name

Stilton can only come from a small number of cheesemakers supplied by certain dairy farms close to Melton Mowbray (of pork Pie fame) - the main Stilton Creameries are: Long Clawson, Colston Bassett plus Tuxford & Tebbit

The best in my opinion is Colston Bassett, it's the creamiest.

Useless facts I know but I grew up in the area :)

I brought a shed load of French cheeses back from Belgium and now it's all gone off! Got far too much! Does cheese go off? Suppose it must......
Yeah, sadly. Particularly soft cheeses. Had some brought back from Normandy some years ago in mid November. By Christmas it was demanding a seat at the table and nicking my best scotch....

S'pose if you pick the green bits off it'll be ok?
