Stinking Bishop

This cheese, though pungent in aroma, is milder than the title suggests.  This is actually taken from the name of the ‘perry’ (fermented pear juice) that is used to wash the cheese.  The rind  is golden and sticky and wrapped in a thin band of wood.  The supple, oozy paste is rich and meaty with a hint of sweetness.

How to Enjoy:

This cheese is wonderful served with fresh pears that complement and complete the cheese origins.  Ideal on the cheese board.  To be served with a robust red wine.
