Charles Martell & Sons Stinking Bishop
This cheese is out of stock for the season. Please check back in November of 2018!
One of the most aromatic cheeses we carry, it smells much stronger than it tastes. This monastery cheese is washed in the cider of a pear grown in Gloucestershire, near the location of the cheese's production. The name of the pear? Stinking Bishop - after the creator's particularly riotous reputation and behavior. The cheese shares its name, and the namesake pungency. Pudgy and oozing, the cheese is wrapped in a thin, beechwood slat to keep it contained, imparting a hint of woodsy flavor to the pungency. Traditional, pasteurized cow's milk, and robustly meaty, this cheese pairs best with a hard cider from the region.
