The best cheese in the shop today is Mrs Kirkhams Lancashire Cheese, made 4th August last year. It is absolutely beautiful with a moist crumbly curd and a tangy, slightly barny, tart flavour. Perfect in a sandwich, perfect toasted with chutney, perfect cooked with an egg and milk, and perfect with an Eccles cake. Just perfect really! ... See MoreSee Less
For the third episode of our Food Chain series, our man of the meat market Peter Gott travels to Lancashire to meet his friend, dairy farmer Graham Kirkham, ...
Jill RenowdenMrs. Kirkham's Lancashire is ace! But my mind goes back to a brief time living in rural Lancashire just down the road from a farm. The owner not only delivered milk fresh from his cows he also delivered his own Lancashire cheese. Fresh and crumbly and I ❤ it.....oooooh nostalgia. Xx2 months ago · 2
Very sad to learn of the death of Veronica Steele of Milleens Cheese. Sarah, me and fellow Neal's Yard cheesemonger William Oglethorpe spent half a week, 20 years ago, learning about this smelly and utterly gorgeous cheese. Veronica and Norman not only shared their home but lent wisdom and understanding (and not just about cheese) to rookie mongers undertaking an Irish road trip. ... See MoreSee Less

After all these years we have tote bags and t shirts emblazoned with our cheesy logo. Just in time for Xmas! And the Aspinwall household can attest to the fact that they wash beautifully. Thank you to Lee at Mesh Screenprinting for the marvelous work!
We are now open all the way to Christmas Eve. ... See MoreSee Less

Heath WellsSo a funny happened on the way home from The Canterbury Cheesemongers... Having come in and bought one the tees shown in this post, along with some divine Colston Bassett stilton and Mahoe Very Old Edam, I had grand ideas of a photoshoot showing off said tee and cheese all on a nice wooden cheeseboard etc... it would have made a great artsy pic... Trouble is, the cheese was sooo yummy looking/smelling that stilton never actually made it home and the edam was no longer in any fit condition to be photographed... Oh dear... So, if I want to set up the photoshoot I wanted it looks like I need to come back in for some more "props"4 months ago · 1
