CHEESE OF THE DAY: WELSH Y-FENNI
Right - so by special request (Mr Franchman - you know who you are) I deciced to dabble with a bit of Welsh cheese - Y-Fenni. The name coming from the welsh name of the town Abergavenny where it comes from. Y-Fenni is basically a strong cheddar cheese blended with mustard seeds and ale - the cheese is slightly softer than most cheddars, and the mustard seeds give it a pleasant heat without being too firey. A very tasty cheese and it has a really good aftertaste that stays with you (and makes you want to eat some more..... and more...... and...... oh dear my whole block of Y-Fenni is gone!). Tasty!
