Cheeses in the Oxford Covered Market.


Sainte-Maure de Touraine and Sein de Negresse(Breast of the Black Woman)which I can't find a link for. Maybe Chez Loulou can help me out on this one.


Carre Du Berry

Valencay

There is a vast range of cheeses at this stall, just amazing, will take more another day.

UPDATE:- My friend Chez Loulou has just informed me that the cheese Sein de Negresse Picture 1) is The Breast of the Black Woman, but I still can't find a link to it. Loulou found another cheese named Le sein de nounou, which translates to The Breast of my Nanny.. Thank you Chez Loulou :-)

  3. Please don't mention cheddar I miss it - and the red leicester and double gloucester and wensleydale and stilton and...

    Mmm! You can get all of the French and Italian cheeses in the UK, but none of the British ones here.

  4. Hi Leesa and Casalba..of course we get cheddar cheese in England..it is where it comes from. :-)

    The cheese comes from the village of Cheddar in Somerset which is the south west of England. or the west country.

    Also I used to work on the CHEESE counter in Sainsburys..used to do some good tasters.

    Can you send cheese to France and Italy???

  8. Hi Anne,
    Mmmm cheese. I loved the cheese when we lived in the UK earlier this year (briefly for four months). We did a few driving trips to Oxford too. What a beautiful town. I'm wondering if you have tried the Polish restaurant in Oxford?

  9. Ilva, Scintilla, britt-arnhild and monika, the choice is amazing, I only took photos of these few, as they looked interesting.

    Ilva - We do have big choice, but I would sure like to try living where you are for a few months !! :-)

    Scintilla - The choice in France is huge as well, at least it was when I was last there. :-)

    Welcome to my new readers and thank you for your lovely comments.

    britt-arnhild - I can never make up my mind, so end up buying small pieces of a few...yummy!

    Monika, where did you live in the UK. No I haven't been to the Polish restaurant yet, I must seek it out!!

    Ooooh Oxford is one of my favourite places in the world - all that gorgeous architecture and history, the beautiful riverside walk up through Christchurch meadow then back along the High...and the covered market is brilliant!

  12. Hi Umbrella Girl...I got so confused when I saw that name..duh!!! Thanks for visiting my blog. I have the Christchurch meadow walk to do yet..might of done it years ago, when I lived at Raf Benson..not sure though. The covered market is just the best..spend ages in there :-)

  13. I would really love to try English cheddar. I've only ever had Canadian (or occasionally American)cheddar. I like it but it would be nice to try the real deal.

  14. Milanese Masala - Hi thanks for visiting...If I could send cheese to France and Italy for all my blogger friends who miss it... I would..:-)

  15. Yummy cheese photos, Anne! I have really been enjoying Double Gloucester and Clive loves Red Leicester :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. PS That's cool you used to work at the cheese counter at Sainsburys! Clive's father goes there every Friday for his shopping and we have put all UK Sainsburys into our GPS :) Good on ya.

  17. I would love to visit Oxford one day. The only places I've ever been to in Britain are London and Liverpool. I'm sure my kids would enjoy the English countryside.

    I've just heard that they eliminated Montreal from the F1 schedule. What do you think about that?

    ReplyDelete
  18. Milanese Masala - Thanks for visiting ...I think I have been to Liverpool...must of been years and years ago..don't remember though. Go to London quite a bit as my mother-in-law lives there, love going. As for dropping Montreal from the GP calendar, it is such a great shame. Brilliant circuit, great place, I think Ecclestone is off his rocker..now they have added Abu Dhabi...all to do with money!!!

  19. I'm amazed that you get some of those local (from my area) goat cheeses! I'm very close to Valençay and Ste.-Maure. Another of the locals is called Selles-sur-Cher and is disk shaped.

  20. Anne, we heard on BBC radio while driving around about the F1 changes, and I thought of you! Interesting re no North America now and so much Europe, Asia, and Middle East. I think Australia still has one too (Melbourne?).

  21. Hi Caroline..well I did like working on the counter, but it was management I couldn't handle. I was the best sample person used to do them all the time. Strangely enough I didn't eat much cheese and I am really not into English cheese..I do it...but not a lot.

    As for formula 1, thanks for thinking of me...it is such a shame for everyone that races in the Middle East are taking over, its all to do with Ecclestone and Money...Great great shame about Montreal, home of Two great champions, a brilliant circuit loved by the teams. Oh yes Melbourne is still one..the first normally in March.

    wcs..thanks for visiting me. The market stall as a lot more than what I showed you. I will go next week with the name you have given me and see if they have it. I am busy at work at the mo..but my eldest son brought me a french cheese today..will photograph and post.
