Oh they love English cheese.

Yep, stuff they cant get their hands on easily. The smellier the better i found

We have a little place in the south and was invited to a new years day lunch in the village. We took stilton and that blue vein stuff (im not a cheesy person sorry) with a bottle of port and they havent stopped talking about the cheeses.
